Image is everything, or is it?
Advertising executive STU COOPER is fascinated by his hairdresser. Over the past two years, he has trusted her with his biggest secret – that his silver highlights are faked to give him a look of seniority in business. He adores her cheerful creative outlook on life, and for too long he has tried to ignore that she has the best boobs in town. If only he could reconcile his interest in her with his overwhelming need to live up to the image he has spent years cultivating.
Hairdresser POPPY KARAHALIOS has inherited her grandfather’s barber shop in trendy Surry Hills. With her creative flair, she’d love to take the salon into modernity but family loyalty holds her back. One client makes all the hard work running her own business worthwhile. For two years, she’s been tinting the edges of his temples with grey, using all her skills to make him the most desirable fake silver fox in town. For two years, she has contented herself with fantasy, and those tingly touches against his skin as she worked. Because Poppy knows for certain that someone so concerned with his image wouldn’t be interested in an overweight hairdresser with rainbow hair.
