A BURNETT Heads hair and beauty salon was the target of vandals on Wednesday night which has left the owner with a massive repair bill.

Owner of Boast Hair and Beauty, Sandra Graham said she received a phone call this morning saying vandals had kicked in the glass to the front of the shop.

"I received a call about the glass being broken and a witness to the incident also told me about the vandalism," she said.

"Apparently three males were seen walking along the street with their shirts off being a nuisance.

"They came along and kicked one of the windows in and walked across to the park and then walked back and kicked two more in."

Ms Graham said the incident happened about 10.10pm on Wednesday and would cost her more than $1000 in damages.

"It is shattering. A small salon like this, three of us have to work all week for that kind of profit,' she said.

"We have been really busy lately, it's been terrific but then to have something like this happen. It is very disappointing."

Ms Graham said she had been a resident of Burnett Heads for seven years and owner of the salon for over two years and had never experienced anything like it.

"The locals here are really good, friendly. It wouldn't be someone I know," she said.

The hairdresser is calling for anyone with information to come forward.

"If someone can give me the names of the people who did this, I will provide them with free haircuts for six months," she said.

The vandalism was reported to police and investigations are continuing.
