• Short Summary

    A story about the 'double twist' in a hair salon where couples can dance and then have their hair cut together.

  • Description

    Finsbury Park, North London.

    We pay a visit to Tom Ahmed's hair salon where couples can dance and then sit side by side and have their hair cut. It starts with a shot of twist records on the record player, the camera moves to a couple twisting while others watch. We see people having their hair cut in the foreground while couples dance in the background.

    Various shots as a girl has her hair cut short to match her boyfriend's. Various couples have their hair cut together, a girl has her long hair cut short. The couples sit down and clap to the music. Tom finishes off a boy's hair and his girlfriend, with a similar short style, comes to join him.

    Note: This is a really good item and lots of fun!
