"It is just not nice to target a small business..." - Sally Moore

Owner Sally Moore says the incident happened sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.

"They made a hole in the glass on the front door and climbed through it," she said.

"It is annoying because they have taken from the people of Herne Bay who have put their money towards the Christmas lights.

"I have spoken to customers about it and they say it is just not nice to target a small business."

A police spokesman said officers are liaising with salon owners and inquiries are ongoing.
