***EXCLUSIVE*** GILLINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM – SEPTEMBER 17: Bashar Brown cutting Samantha Jessup’s hair (31) on September 17, 2011 in Gillingham, Kent, England. A hairdresser has opened the UKS first fat salon – just for larger people. Slim Bashar Brown, 31, discovered his overweight clients hated having to go to salons to get their hair cut where all the facilities were designed for normal-sized people. So Bashar, from Rainham, Kent, decided to open the UKs first hair salon for fat people giving them their very own hairdressing haven. Bashar spent £5,000 making sure his entire salon was fat friendly complete with special seats, gowns, and even wider-neck basins for washing hair.
