There is a brand new innovative hair salon opening on Barlow Moor Road in Didsbury. The other 74 no longer Brand New and possibly not as innovative hair salons in M20 (including the cannily named M20 Salon) must be sweeping hair nervously and pacing their boutique staff rooms in a mousse of a fluster. It’s time for a meet and greet haircut ring showdown. A bit like The Warriors but with more gel. If the 196 active hairdressers / barbers in Didsbury met at Gourmet Burger King on any given Sunday to Saturday they could a) all get a table. b) enjoy the surprisingly high-quality coleslaw.
Is this the invasion of the hair cutters or an indictment on the bouffant loving M20ians whose postcode hosts only 3 bookmakers (Will I Am Betting, David Pluck the Button and A Lad Name Brook), 1 library and 2 tapas bars (the sublime Morcilla-friendly Pinchjo’s on Burton Road and the sturdy Casa Tapas in the village) BUT could comfortably cut the hair, whilst charity dressing the whole of Cheshire in one go.
So welcome to the Hirsuite jungle Tysons. Once a dog, then a boxer, now a brand new innovative hair empire.
