Description: Two beauty salons in the small English town of Keighley are locked in a heated rivalry over the National Hairdressing Championships. Local hairdresser Phil was once the golden boy of the competition until his wife and model Shelly left him and their son Brian to set up shop with her lover Sandra. Retired from the scene, Phil wants nothing to do with all the excitement surrounding the beautiful and stylish crowd that has flocked to the town. However, as the preparations for the big event begin to unfold, it becomes clear that the out-of-towners aren't playing by the rules, so rivals Phil, Shelly and Sandra must put aside their differences and team up to put their town back on the map and their family back on track.
