A hair and beauty salon have banned celebrity gossip magazines in the wake of Caroline Flack’s death.

Distinction Hair and Beauty in Ayr are standing with many salons across the country by not providing clients with gossip magazines to read following the tragic death of the 40-year-old TV star.

Instead the salon will offer well-being and lifestyle mags to read in their place.

The salon made the decision in a bid to empower women and spread positivity.

Salon owner Stacy Stakim, 43, said: “After the recent sad news of Caroline Flack, we have made the decision to only supply positive magazines such as home interiors, food, fashion, travel and health and well-being.

“It’s not about putting publications out of business it’s just about reading positivity and watching what we say.

“Social media has a lot to answer for- people think they have the right to comment on somebody’s life or looks and put it out there for all to see.

“It’s an old saying but if you don’t have anything nice to say then say nothing at all.

“When we heard about Caroline, it really hit home for us.

“People think taking criticism and being trolled is part of a celebrity’s job but it’s not.

“Women should be empowered. We should be fixing each others’ crowns not dragging each other through the mud.

“If a client is sitting reading negative stuff about beach bodies before they go on holiday and those celebs maybe have a ‘better body’ than they do then how does that make them feel.

“Clients should leave the salon feeling positive and good about themselves.

Stacy also reminded past, present and future clients that the salon is “forever a safe place”.

She added: “Our jobs are so much more than just someone who does nails, lashes, hair, and other beauty treatments- we will always be here, even if it’s just an ear to listen.”
