The South Ealing salon which was paid a visit by North Korean heavies after lampooning leader Kim Jong Un’s distinctive hair style has turned its attentions to Donald Trump.
M&M Hair Academy incurred the wrath of officials from the secretive communist state in 2014 when it promoted a discount by using an image of Mr Kim in the shop window under the title Bad Hair Day.
Now the imaginative business has turned on the controversial US businessman and Republican presidential candidate.
The new poster mocks the much-talked-about hair style of Mr Trump. It features an unflattering image of the billionaire and reads: “Free combover with every bleach and toner.”
Other M&M Hair Academy posters have mocked David Cameron and George Osborne. The brains behind the posters is Karim Nabbach, son of owner Mo.
He said: “Most of our posters are based on political figures so having Donald Trump, who is an internationally hated human being, seemed a no-brainer.
“It’s been up for a while now but it’s still receiving a lot of interest because he’s more current and in the media a lot more.
“And thankfully, I haven’t had anyone from the US Embassy come round and demand it taken down.”
Police were called to the hairdressers in South Ealing Road in April 2014 when heavies from the North Korean embassy, situated nearby in Gunnersbury Avenue, Ealing , demanded the poster be taken down.
Among Karim’s other promotional creations was one featuring a photo of the then Prime Minister David Cameron. Written was: “What a cut! We can do better, 15% off all gents cuts on Tuesdays! See you next Tuesday!”
In August a North Korean diplomat fled the embassy and defected with his family to South Korea.
