A Kirkcaldy beauty salon owner is appealing for any information on those responsible for breaking into her shop.

Pouts and Pinups in Dunnikier Road was broken into some time between 7pm on Saturday and 9am on Tuesday, and thousands of pounds of electrical equipment as well as a till drawer with the shop’s float inside, other cash and beauty and hair products stolen.

Stacey Whittaker (35), who has owned the shop for just over two years, said: “I am really shocked and angry to think that someone could do this to our lovely salon.

“One of the girls came in this morning at 9am to open up and saw the bottom pane of glass in the door was smashed. She thought maybe someone had just kicked it, but when she came inside and saw the mess we realised it had been a break-in.

“We have spent the whole day cleaning up and have had to close the shop and cancel all the appointments. It’s just heartbreaking.”

Pouts and Pinups employs six full-time and four part-time staff.

Detective Inspector Graeme Dursley from Kirkcaldy CID said: “This break-in has resulted in much of the salon’s stock being stolen and we are actively conducting various inquiries locally to identify the culprits.

“If you remember seeing any suspicious activity around the premises on Monday evening or early Tuesday morning then please contact police immediately.

“We would also urge anyone who is approached and offered hair products that may have been stolen from the salon to decline and report the matter to us.”

Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
