Permanently Yours
Ken has been perming June's hair for over 60 years. He started doing it when she was 16 and came into his parents hair salon in Folkestone.

A few years later they married and after the war, they ran the salon together. Ken was a keen amateur documentary-maker and recorded a day in the life of the salon in colour super-8 in the seventies. He is now 86 and, although June protests at times, he still perms her hair every week. An unsentimental story of enduring love.
