Second England lockdown closes Hounslow barbershop for good

A barbershop run by a man known as the “Mayor of Hounslow” is closing its door for the last time due to a second England lockdown.

Dennis Annoh, 51, has run Hairshack on the same site in Gilbert Street, Hounslow, west London for 27 years.

He opened the shop as a record store in 1993 called Sugar Shack, but converted it into a barbers when people began buying CDs.

The first coronavirus lockdown was challenging, but the doors will not be reopening after the second England-wide lockdown.

Mr Annoh says business “is not coming back”.
