Growing Up Poor: Britain’s Breadline Kids
Three articulate and engaging kids tell their own stories and wryly observe the impact poverty and homelessness is having on their families, including their parents’ mental health.
No subject is off limits, whether it’s sex, politics or social taboos, and in three diverse salons across the country we’re given a unique insight into what the nation really thinks.
From the family run salon in Wales renting out hair extensions to aspiring beauty pageant queens, to the hairdressers in Wood Green tending to Afro Caribbean tresses and the salon in Tooting preparing Asian brides-to-be for their lavish weddings, the intimate conversations between stylist and client reflect the social mores of multicultural Britain.
