What are the funniest haircuts on the planet?
In January 2016, Derek’s Hairdressers in Northampton was shut down by the UK government after being forced to shut down because it had a “serious” safety breach.
Now, a year on, Derek is trying to rebuild his business and is hoping that the country can emulate his success in Northamptons case.
“I have a lot of people who are looking for jobs in the UK,” he said.
“People come here and they have an idea of what they want to do.
And I have to tell them, ‘You’re not going to find it here’.” Derek’s haberdasheries has been in operation for just over a year, with more than 1,000 customers, and Derek said it was still growing.
“We have some clients coming from all over the world.
Some of them are going to be coming here for the first time, because they are looking to get their hair cut and it’s something they have never done before,” he explained.
“They want to get a good cut and they don’t want to be stuck in the salon for a long time.”
They want a good look and a quick hair cut, and they can’t afford to go to a salon and be stuck there for days.
“It’s like they have been looking for a new hairstyle forever.
They want a cut they can look good in and a haircut they can wear for the rest of their lives.”
Derek said that while there were some people who were worried about the safety of the salon, most customers were very happy with their haircut.
“It’s definitely a place you would go for a good haircut,” he added.
“You can see the people coming in and out of the shop and you know what they’re like.
You don’t have to worry about them looking over their shoulder.”
While some of the hair styling is being done by a dedicated team of experienced and experienced staff, some customers may come in for a haircut from the local hair shop.
“There are some clients who come in who have never been in the shop before and they just want to try it out,” said Derek.
“A lot of the time we see them with their friends and it gets their hair done, but they are also happy because it’s a bit of a social occasion.”
We’ve had a couple of clients who are from outside the UK come in and say, ‘I’ve got some friends who are coming to see me and they’re here to try out a cut I’ve never done’.
And they’re coming in for an hour and we’ve got to cut them down before they can go home.
“For a while it was a little bit, well, it’s just a little piece of chaos, but we’re getting used to it.””
But it’s not really affecting us too much,” he continued.
“For a while it was a little bit, well, it’s just a little piece of chaos, but we’re getting used to it.”
I would say we’ve had two or three customers come in here and tell us they were just visiting from a different country and that they thought it was the funnest haircut in the world.
“The customer can come in, they can sit, we can talk, we’ll make a cut and then they can come out and go home.””
If you want to come to the salon and try it, we’re open seven days a week,” he laughed.
“The customer can come in, they can sit, we can talk, we’ll make a cut and then they can come out and go home.”
The customers are very happy.
“In that way, it becomes a real friendship, because I can be with my family and my friends, and have it all be in one day.””
And then I can wear it for the whole year,” he told New Scientist.
