Everyone’s favourite singing barber Paul Federici welcomes 70s stunners Emma Murphy (centre) and Lisa Lorenz to his salon to mark the beginning of a beautiful new relationship.

Mr Federici has given Chaps and Dames in Tollington Park, Finsbury Park, a retro makeover - and vintage boutique Rock Candy, which is based in Holloway Road, Upper Holloway, is now selling some of its stylish garments from the back of his shop.

Mr Federici said: “I wanted to up the ante at Chaps and Dames. We’ve refurbished and rebranded - and to have Rock Candy on board is fantastic.

“They have just been nominated Best New Vintage shop 2011 in The Vintage Guide to London and will really help us tap into a niche market.”

Mr Federici recently released a single called Close to You, which was inspired by a customer who was shot while on duty in Afghanistan.
