Bobs, Beehives & Bouffants. My Life At The Cutting Edge
By Anthony Barnes-Smith
Anthony Barnes-Smith, who was born and raised in Sunderland and started his career in hairdressing in Newcastle’s then-notorious Pink Lane, was one of the leading stylists in London during the Swinging Sixties, the decade which revolutionised hairdressing.
Regarded as the ‘boy wonder’ of British stylists, he turned hairdressing into a fine art, won a whole host of top national and international competitions, was a member of the British team in the Hairdressing World Cup and rubbed shoulders with the great and the good of the fiercely-competitive industry.
In his newly-published book – Bobs, Beehives and Bouffants – Anthony, who is celebrating his 42nd year in the hairdressing industry and is still in demand with his large and distinguished clientele, lifts the lid on the intense rivalry and internal politics which eventually saw him turn his back on the competition scene.
