The U.K. Hair Salon That Favors "Larger Women"

uk-salon-embed
Bashar Brown loves "big women." So much so, that he opened a beauty salon specifically catering to the plus-sized client who is sick of going to salons "filled with slim women." The U.K. hairdresser dished out £5,000 to create the first "fat-friendly" salon in the comfort of his own home in Rainham, Kent. Women adorned in plus-size gowns can sit comfortably in a wider seat as they get their hair done—and avoid any judgement that could otherwise ruin a very relaxing, pampering experience. What's the verdict, ladies? Thoughtful? Insulting? We'll let you weigh in, no pun intended. (Express U.K.)
