MALCOLM H closed for good

Poor mans Eddie Mariners ..
Eddie isn't a well man now.
Bloody shame.

As for Malcolm, - his place was top notch in the 80's.
But all the old barbers are retiring now as they are old men
Just these Turkish fly-by night dilutees left in the town now.

By the way, anyone remember John R Hammond in John Street??
Proper owld barber that gadgie.

Always Preferred Salon 70/Euro Salon/Cutz?

On occasions i used Eddie Mariners and Malcolm H and they were both good.

What about The Dummies on Suddick Green:rolleyes:

I remember Christmas '89. Would've been the day before Christmas Eve. I was 14. It was a time when he had loads of git lush lasses working in there and they all had these tiny little Santa outfits on, I had a favourite who I always liked to cut my hair; petite, pretty blonde girl (they've always been my thing). Just waiting in the queue was a joy, she had stockings on and as she bent slightly, you could just see the tops - it was tremendous. Joy of joys she also did my hair. I swear to God that Christmas was lost in a masturbatory haze, I was nee good for weeks. In fact, I'm getting a twinge just recollecting it 30 years later... If I knew then worra knar now...

Aye the dummies. Didn’t matter what you asked for you always got a short back and sides. Two lovely gentlemen.

I'm sure the Dummies was on the right heading away from Southwick Green towards the Albion (also known as the Bush). The barbers opposite the Green was Blakeys next to the sweet shop at the Savoy. I went to Blakeys once for my haircut before going back to school in the September, I'd be about nine, and me dad sent me back to get it finished as he said was crap and wasn't finished

Aye there was jimmy and the dummy. Can’t remember the dummies name sadly but that’s what everyone called him. Someone on here surely will know. Can’t remember Blakey’s. Im only 44 mind.

Went to salon70 once. Sat for ages queuing and Stan Cummins walks in and went straight to the front. Nivver liked the short arsed prick after that. Was amazed they didn’t have a special high chair for him. Nivver went back.

Mr Youern (the Dummy) wasn't doing much and his colleague Jimmy Wilde was signing him instructions.
