What cut you ask for in an East London hairdressers in the late 1980s and early 1990s? Men in East London didn’t sport man buns, top knots and ironic mullets. Women’s hair was bouffant big, moussed, soft, puffy and all about volume. You’d see flat tops, hair curtains, ski slopes, generous fringes, shaved lines, rat tails, perms and hi-top fades. Peter Marshall was walking around East London, taking photographs of the everyday things, like these, his pictures of hairdressers.
