By David Prior at

A new hairdressing boutique is to open on Moss Lane in Altrincham next month.

Funky Rouge has agreed a 10-year lease on the 1,100 sq ft ground and basement retail premises.

It will occupy the Stamford House unit formerly occupied by Velo Espresso coffee shop until its closure earlier this year.

Co-owner Andrew Fielding said: “The premises are currently being fitted out and we are planning a soft opening with super savings available to those who live or work in the Altrincham and Hale area for the first four weeks.

“The salon will also have the exclusive Red Angel Style Station concept created by our sister salon which is fast, affordable and nothing short of your hair saviour. Our aim is to provide an excellent service to all our clients and we look forward to welcoming them.”

Funky Rouge will open on Tuesday 12th June.

Daniel Lee, director at Regional Property Solutions who let the outlet on behalf of the landlord Petros, said: “Moss Lane is proving to be particularly popular with independent retailers following the town’s regeneration initiatives along Stamford New Road. This along with the significant increase in footfall is reflected in the number of enquiries we have in another unit which has just become available.”

The tenant was unrepresented.
