Yorkshire Men Looking Their Best

Many a sergeant major has bawled ‘Get Your haircut you ‘orrible little man’ as they did in the Carry on Sergeant films. Modern day recruits and city gents now have a far wider choice of  methods of ‘grooming’ their hair and ‘improving’ their appearance..


The old standby, the traditional barbers is still a firm favourite. How many still have copies of Picture Post or Punch on display? Not many they are too posh but Titbits then that’s a whole different issue.

Short back and sides, a bit of a trim or a square neck were and still may be the top injunctions to the traditional barber. Anything else drives the barber up the pole.

DIY hair has moved on from the traditional pudding basin. Some of the results may not be all that different however. Still for less than £30 you can buy a modern trimmer to do your own (Pudding basin not included.) This should appeal to cost consious Yorkshire folk as it will save paying money to have someone trim your hair for you. It also encourages a more regular trim as it costs nowt after the the trimmer is bought .
