#032 caesar the emperor penguin


"Caesar is a hairdresser. He snips and preens to sleek perfection in fact the only drawback to this talented penguin’s salon is that his streamlined style is so honed that he often gets in the way of what the customer actually wants. Unless you know you can ‘go short’, and carry off blocky contrasts and ‘pops’ or colour, then you might want to steer clear of Caesar’s because even if you don’t ask for his signature cut, you more often than not get it anyway." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
