“Pretend you’re in your bedroom, close your eyes, now dance like you don’t care”
Trevor “Me-We” Landell
Every Sunday, barber and hairdresser Trevor “Me-We” Landell can be found outside on London’s Brick Lane, delivering haircuts with a twist. Armed with nothing but a chair, boombox and willing client, Landell dances while cutting hair, drawing crowds of curious onlookers in the process. Adopting the nickname “Me-We” (in tribute to the shortest poem in the English language, coined by Muhammad Ali) over the years he’s become something of a fixture, making the journey every Sunday from his hometown of Chippenham. While he sometimes operates from his brother’s boutique ‘Iconoclast’, also on Brick Lane, Landell prefers to take his cuts out into the open air. Asked to sum up his unique dance moves; “pretend you’re in your bedroom, close your eyes, now dance like you don’t care”.
