London's Most Expensive Haircut



London's Most Expensive Haircut

Normally a snip at 30 quid... not 15,000 quid though

Location: Park Lane, W1K 1QA

Description: They are normally a snip a 30 quid.

But the Sultan of Brunei is said to have paid 15,000 quid to get a London barber to trim his hair in what is believed to be the most expensive haircut ever.

He hired a private suite on a Singapore Airlines flight to carry Ken Modestou, who runs a barber's at the Dorchester hotel in Mayfair, the 7,000 miles to his home to attend to his hair.

The sultan is believed to have ordered the special cabin to ensure the barber was isolated from possible swine flu among other passengers.

Back in London, the barber charges just 30 nicker for a cut. Mr Modestou has been cutting the sultan's hair for 16 years, sometimes going every three or four weeks, the Sunday Times reported.
