D*FINE Hair Studio stylists and friends transformed themselves into glamorous Burlesque dancers last Friday night as part of their annual fund-raising for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

The Howegate stylists had embarked on a week of lessons sassy cabaret-style at Sam Deans’ Studio in preparation for a showcase to raise money for the charity, in partnership with GHD.

Salon proprietor Denise Parker, whose shop has raised more than £17,000 for the cause over the past four years, told the Hawick News: “Myself, Mario and Kev had our first lesson with Sam last Monday and then we practised every night last week to do a Moulin Rouge routine for those who were coming along, and Sam also held a Burlesque dance for everyone beforehand.”

She added: “It was a huge success, really good fun. Doing our own routine felt weird but it went down really well.”

The salon staff are also planning a fund-raising quiz.
