This incredible story takes us back on July 7, 2005. During a terrorist attack, a woman called Shelly Line survived a bombing attack while being only 3 meters away from the actual explosion! The explosion happened at the popular King’s Cross, and the 49-year-old was incredibly lucky to get out alive.
During the attack, 52 people have died, which has made an impact on Shelly. That was heartbreaking since no one really got the opportunity to see another day or share their potential, and she ended up wondering ”How & why did I survive?”
About three weeks ago, Shelly has opened up the first-ever community salon on Magdalen Street in Norwich. Her primary goal was to make others happy and to use her potential to the fullest. She wanted to make others happy, while investing time, thought, effort & care into every single detail.
The salon works in an unusual way where their clients pay a non-profit fee for services. The name of the salon is The Hair Care Share, where the services start at £30, and everyone is encouraged to contribute any additional amount. This extra money funds different hair services for those in need. By doing so, Shelly is able to give anyone the hairstyle of their dreams, the cut, or a set of highlights! And having clean & healthy hair should be everyone’s basic right.
Shelly was also diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in 2005, but this never stopped her from working as a hairdresser and following her dreams. Before this incident, she worked as a hairdresser in Norwich and London and has been one of the top 10 hairdressers at L’Oreal.
