Name: Cass Preston
Position: Salon Owner
With a family of inspirational business owners behind her, Cass was always destined to be the proprietor of a thriving independent salon. Her hairdressing career began more than 30 years ago in Whalley and thanks to the Ribble Valley’s fashionable selection of independent enterprises, Cass believes the village centre makes the perfect base for Lusso and its stylish clients.
Taking immense pride in her handpicked, homegrown team, Cass’s favourite part of her job at the salon’s helm is nurturing talent and seeing her employees flourish. She is confident that she has the best line-up of staff in the Ribble Valley and is so invested in them that if she won the lottery, she would happily give them all shares in Lusso!
Family-focused Cass puts her success down to believing in herself and not letting other people put her down. Her favourite time of year in the salon is Christmas, her drink of choice is Hendrick’s gin and Fever Tree tonic and the product she couldn’t live without is the revolutionary Wella Plex, as it allows for hair to be coloured without damaging its condition.
