A DUNFERMLINE Barber has shown it is a cut above after being named the Best Barber in Fife.

The David Gray salon in Hospital Hill scooped the title at the Fife section of the Scottish Business Awards which took place on Wednesday evening.

Owner Yvonne Sutherland was delighted with the accolade.

"We are absolutely buzzing," she said. "It is an amazing achievement for this business. My grandad started this business in 1949 and it has been going and going. I dedicated this award to him. He employed loads of people throughout his business days.

"This is the first time this business has been recognised. It is massive for me. Next July, I will have been here for 20 years."

The salon was nominated initially by an unknown customer and then voting took place to identify the overall winner.

"We got the most votes in Fife and will go through to the Scottish one which is in Glasgow in November," added Yvonne. "I was just over the moon to be nominated. Our customers are amazing. We are so lucky."
