"Thank you to everyone who has already sent your love.

3 Amigos said damage has been caused to the studio's entrance. 

"We are all absolutely devastated," said the post. 

"This means we have no access to our studio so we are unable to work until the repairs have been completed.

"I'm so sorry, this is beyond my control, but I will keep everyone informed as and when I know what's happening, so please bear with us.

"I will message everyone who is booked in, so please be patient."

Glow said: "We regret to inform you that our salon will be closed today. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will provide updates on our reopening as soon as possible.
