Mohican Fundraiser Barred From Harrods

A woman was prevented from entering Harrods after the store took umbrage with her green Mohican hair style. The spiky locks apparently breach the customer dress code that nixes any follicular elevation grater than 5cm. Bad news for Amy Winehouse, or Gary Rhodes circa 2001, then. Lisa Mansour of Didsbury was sporting the unusual hair style after taking part in a fundraising bid that took in £1,300 for Brain Tumour UK. The toffo department store, which previously banned a soldier from entering lest he scare the customers, confirmed that it outlaws all 'extremes in personal presentation'. Good. London needs its pockets of snootiness. By maintaining its imperious attitude towards customers and dictating how they present themselves, Harrods sets itself apart from the umpteen alternatives where people can buy posh things they don't really need. In quashing free expression, it actually adds to the variety of London's shopping experiences. Image by Sizemore.
