However, as the restrictions have eased, the number of customers have risen and continue to rise as Mrs Gourley's home-based business Duca's Hair Studio gets busy.

"The clients have dropped in the past few months but they have picked up in the past two, three weeks," she said.

"Hopefully it will be a return to normality."

Mrs Gourley actually spent some time away from her home business at Clinton.

"I have been working from home for a long time but spent about 10 months working at a salon," she said.

"I realised that I was up to speed but realised this was not for me so I returned to working from home.

"My clients were happy for me to come back."

Mrs Gourley said Duca Hair Studio was open "most of the time" and customers can come in any time to 34 Cockutoo Drive, Clinton for a style and cut and her contact number is 0421422882.
