She said: “We’re really lucky in Crookes to be full of small businesses. It’s what keeps Crookes alive.

“It’s rubbish that they’re targeting small businesses. I’m grateful for every customer and it all goes towards our families, we’re just normal people so it’s sad.”

The police are investigating all the incidents and the salon remains open for business despite the damage.
