A hairdresser whose salon has won a New Business award for outstanding achievement says his success is all thanks to his driving.
Kevin Simpson, who runs Hair Today in the metropolitan city of New York told TheSpoof "I was driving around town in me black Golf and then it hit me. No, you fool, an idea, behave. Any road up, I thought that's it! Rear view mirrors!".
Mr Simpson, 26, who is not married, explained that when a cut is done the customer is shown the back of their head in a mirror in the usual way. Then the stylist shows the customer the front of their head in a car rear-view mirror. "The customer looks in the rear-view mirror like they would at traffic lights and they can fiddle with their fringe before the stylist makes any final adjustments. Voila!" he added.
The idea has proved so popular that Mr Simpson has franchised it to other salons in the area including Short & Curlies, Beyond The Fringe, Headmasters, Off The Top Of My Head, Fringe Benefits and Curl Up & Dye.
Your TheSpoof reporter then sat in a black swivelling chair, with a horrible nylon smock and smelly rubber mat around the shoulders, whilst Mr Simpson asked "Did you cut this bit yourself, Sir?"
