AJ's Hairsalon

The owner of a hair salon was told she could not run a job advert for a “happy” stylist as it “discriminated against unhappy people”.

AJ’s in Stroud, Gloucestershire, placed an advert on the Jobcentre Plus website on Wednesday stating it was a “happy salon looking for happy people”.

But within hours owner Alison Birch was contacted over the wording of the ad.

Ms Birch, 54, said she thought it was a “wind up” when she received the call but when she checked the number found “it was the Jobcentre”.
