Hair salons warned they could face the hair dryer treatment if they show live TV without a licence

First published in News

HAIR salons are being warned to stop cutting corners or face the hair dryer treatment.

TV Licensing is urging salon owners across the borough to make sure they have a licence if they are showing live TV for their customers.

There are about 100 hair dressers in and within five miles of the town and bosses say some of them may not actually be allowed to show live TV.

Since April, three salons across the UK have been prosecuted for licence fee evasion.

Martin Dyan, TV Licensing spokesperson for London and the South East, said: “With many salons mounting small TV screens by each chair or providing handheld tablets so customers don’t miss a minute of their best-loved TV shows, live TV and hairdressing have never been closer.

“But it’s important salon owners and managers take a few moments to review and update their licensing requirements.”

A TV Licence costs £145.50. Anyone without one could be fined up to £1,000.

Cutting Corners ! Hair Dryer Treatment, OMG ! What Pun ?
We are funny today.
The Luvvies charter fee or levy where we are all taken to the cleaners never mind the hair dressers.
Its the biggest single rip off next to the Council Tax !
What a joke jobs for the boys, who for years harboured the likes of Saville on the backs of our money !
The sickly stench of "Auntie" In her curlers, protecting the shirt-lifters and b*m boys !
This is written in the utmost disgust !
