A south London beauty salon has been forced to close after hundreds of people flocked to noisy all-night raves after hours.

Z&S Hair and Beauty, in South Norwood, was slapped with a three month closure order by Croydon Magistrates’ Court after residents complained the venue was holding weekly parties.

Furious neighbours reported “music blasting out” to the council and complained of noisy revellers spilling out onto the street between 11pm and 7am during the unlicensed events.

Police officers discovered huge speakers embedded into the wall of the salon, on South Norwood High Street.

They said the building was predominantly being used as a nightclub.

A bar had been set up in the corner of the shop alongside DJ decks and music equipment, the court heard.

The salon was handed the closure order on August 8. 

Councillor David Wood, deputy cabinet member for communities, safety, and justice, said: “The three-month closure of this premises will bring much needed respite to the local community. 

“This unlicensed use of the property had to be stopped and I’m pleased our team took the necessary steps to ensure peace can now be brought back to the area.”
