The second suspect has also been described as white, with a gaunt appearance, aged in late 30s and about 5ft 5in tall. He was wearing a dark top and dark trousers. Both suspects were wearing gloves.

PC Holly Canning said: "It's clear the men's intention in this instance was to steal the shop's takings.

"All the women within the salon have been left badly shaken by this incident.

"I would appeal to people who were in Main Street yesterday around the time of the incident. This is a busy shopping area and I know people will have been out and about and I'm sure the two men will have been noticed as they left the shop and ran off up Main Street."
