Photos in a barbershop

I had to go and get my haircut and, as the new barbers (with the little hospital bed type-TVs showing Monster trucks on the Discovery channel) was rammed I went ‘old-school.’ Yes, I went to Ted’s for a short-back-and-sides and was delighted to see little had changed. Even the photos showcasing haircuts I’d never seen Ted give still had pride of place on the woodchip walls.

Spiky and wet-look and demi-wave
Tight perms and mullets, towel for a shave
Models in chinos wearing white vests
Distant stares, they’re the spit of Go West

Take your pick if you’re in the market
Punk, flat top or a Morten Harket
Framed on the wall, they’re the chosen few
Unloved and unchanged since ‘92
