 “To really experience the full glory of the British love of wordplay in action, it’s back to the high street, where it’s important for businesses to grab the attention of passing strangers and force them to remember who they are… As well as classics like Curl Up & Dye, A Cut Above, and Short & Curlies, there are specifically British-themed barber’s and hairstylist’s with names like British Hairways, Choppy Toff’s (toff being a gently pejorative term for a snooty member of the upper classes), and Jack the Clipper.”
