A beautician whose work dried up during lockdown bought an ambulance on Facebook and launched her own mobile makeovers-on-wheels business. With salons closed due to Covid restrictions, mum Kirsty Martin spent two years converting the emergency vehicle into a cosmetic caravan she calls "The Glambulance". The 34-year-old from Faversham, Kent, said she bought it on Facebook Marketplace for £2,500. Kirsty said: “It was apparently from a care home. But it was also used in Coronation Street." The mother-of-one spent a further £2,000 on the pink respray and about £4,500 on doing the rest up. Kirsty relied on the help of family and friends to see the transformation through, temporarily moving back in with her mum. She added: “My stepdad helped with electrics. I’ve had to learn a lot. We spent hours and hours watching all sorts of different YouTube videos.” “It was a lot more complicated than we originally thought. But it’s been really successful. I’ve moved out of my mum’s now.”
