Brief

Following on from last week&#39s controversial Correspondent&#39s Week article by Money Marketing&#39s hirsute hack Simon English, the Diary is pleased to inform readers that they can indeed find a haircut in Soho for less than £25.

After much tramping round the historic streets, we found a barber shop on Mill Street that will shape any male moptops to the latest fashions for £13.75.

The price includes a shampoo, cut and finish.

Fortunately for English, the barber is a financial adviser in the morning and hairdresser in the afternoon.

He may not be able to do much for English&#39s looks but at least he may be able to teach him a few financial facts before the Sunday Telegraph grabs him off Money Marketing next week.
