Aberdeen barber Vikki-Leigh Kane has set up a new barbers shop with a twist.

Eleos in Albyn lane will be offering gents traditional barbering service alongside a range of holistic therapies including beauty treatments, relaxation, deep tissue massage, aromatherapy and reflexology.

Vikki-Leigh has been working in the hair and beauty industry for the past 6 years and now feels it’s her time to open her new salon.

Vikki-Leigh started to gain salon experience in a local barber shop in 2012 where they won the title of best barbers in the northeast and overall in Scotland for two years.

After seeing a demand for massage, Vikki-Leigh cut back her hours at work to put her head in the books and went back to college for a year to study complementary therapies.

Vikki-Leigh said “I opened my salon as I felt confident it was my time to do so. I now feel that my children are that little bit older and more independent so the timing was right for me to take a chance to make a better life for me and my kids.”
