Tuttii Fruittii London is not your conventional hair salon!

Owners Tuttii Fruitti and Toni Tits passion of Clown and Hair artistry have come together to bring the local community of Deptford, South East London a unique space that is more than a salon. In a space that’s promoting self empowerment and creative freedom through identity expression, today we’re going to learn more on why these two clown hair sculptors are challenging the NORM!.

Tuttii and Toni’s hairdressing story is filled with rebelling against what they see to be societies preconceived ideas on what the beauty norms are and oppressive discriminatory stereotypes. In this episode we’re going to hear how the Tuttii Fruittii London salon started out as caravan sat within a the grounds of a Deptford primary school, before going on to become a fixed bricks and mortar high street shop that promotes hair pride for all genders and hair types.

I’m really excited to introduce you all to these two young ladies who are bringing their varied social, political and expression of nonconformity beliefs to the hair industry, reminiscent to that of the punk movement.

So let’s get the ball rolling as we dive into a bowl full of technicolour fruits for all genders and hair types – Tuttii Fruittii London. Enjoy the juice!
