Governor gets prison hair cut at Fairbanks Salon

| 16/12/2013

(CNS): The Cayman Islands governor got a new hairdo last week after visiting the prison salon at Fairbanks. Helen Kirkpatrick had her hair shampooed, cut and ‘feathered’ by inmates at the institution's salon classroom, where prisoners and teachers demonstrated their skills. Officer Yvrose Barton, who manages the salon training centre, directed the proceedings while the inmates washed, cut, brushed and blow-dried her hair. Thanking the ladies for their service, the governor said she was pleased with her new look. Officials said that inmates take part in the training at the salon to improve their chances of securing a job after their release and reducing the potential for re-offending. This training has been assisted through private sector donations of equipment and materials for the Fairbanks salon.

Other salon services include manicures, pedicures, cosmetology, massages, hair-colouring, cuts and braiding. In addition to practicing styles on each other, the women offer salon services to members of the public, by appointment with the HMP Fairbanks office.  The inmates also provide pro bono services to residents of the Pines Retirement Home.

    Based on one of the photos used by another media house it appears as if security of the Governor is carless. Having the Govnor's head in the hands of an accused murderer cannot be a good idea…..
