Your hair, it’s important, right? But imagine having really important hair. Hair that influences the men of Britain, perhaps even the world. That’s the position that model Ricki Hall finds himself in. Bombarded by fans on social media, all looking for his blessing on their ‘Ricki Hall’ cut, his has become one of the most asked for cuts in Britain. Move over Beckham, there’s a new chop in town. We speak to the man himself and Kevin Luchmun, British Hairdresser of the Year, about whether there is such a thing as an influential haircut. And what makes a good one.

Harrison compares and contrasts with surprising results.
