According to the owners, Sisu means ‘will and determination in Finnish.’

There is good news coming on its way to Grantham residents. A new hairdressing salon has been opened by the combined force of two former co-workers – Lisa Brandworth and Julie Dilks.

Deciding to become self-employed, they both joined hands to collaborate and establish their own haven in the hairdressing world. 

The dynamic duo named their shop as ‘Sisu Hair Collective.” According to the owners, Sisu means ‘will and determination in Finnish.’ So the duo thought it was the perfect moniker, emphasizing their commitment to offering a haven for their customers to get their hair done confidently.

“We wanted to create a unique space where any freelance artists can come and feel like they are amongst a team, offering clients top-notch services in a beautiful setting while still remaining your own boss,” said the duo through their Facebook Page. 

They have been planning to run the shop by themselves, complemented by Freelance workers which enable the pair to provide a wide range of beauty and cosmetic services to their customers.
