Hi all,<div>
</div><div>Thought I would ask you all this question, would love all feedback good and bad from everyone</div><div>
</div><div>My Husband and I are considering uprooting from the UK and moving to Sidari</div><div>
</div><div>I have a business doing Hair Extensions and Spray Tanning in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was wondering if people in Corfu and surrounding areas would be interested in this?</div><div>
</div><div>As it does get so hot, Glue Extensions wouldn't be an option, it would all be Micro Ring Extensions</div><div>
</div><div>Do you think there would be a market for this kind of thing out there and/is there anyone out there that already does this?</div><div>

Spray tanning in Corfu? Cant imagine this would succeed but you never know. Hair extensions not too sure on that either as most of the Greek girls have lovely hair without the use of these but maybe you could specialise a bit more and aim at the wedding market? If you actually do hairdressing I think that would be more to your advantage especially with the Brits that live there.

I think you should perhaps speak to regulars on the site who live in Corfu year round to get a feel as to whether this would be a good and profitable business venture.

There was a spray tan place in Sidari but unfortunately only lasted a season and is now for sale.....

Hi Shell. With the state of the economy in Greece at the moment it may not be the best time to give up what business you have in UK for one in Corfu. I lived in Sidari for a few years. There are lots of things to take into consideration - your business would have to make enough money in the summer to finance you through the winter. In the winter money is tight for everyone and you would be very lucky to make a living from your business. Also what would your husband plan to do? There is very little work for the menin winter and what work there is, mainly building and manual work, isnt enough to go around all those needing work.

<DIV>Sorry to sound so negative but I tend to tell it how it is. </DIV>
<DIV>I adore Corfu and would be back there tomorrow - if I won the lottery
