The Coiffing

1896: The Savoy No.3

Illustration for Beardsley's poem The Ballad of a Barber, a carefully wrought and chilling fable concerning a thirteen-year old princess and a Sweeney Todd-like coiffeur, who slits her throat with the jagged glass of a broken bottle of cologne, and then creeps away 'on pointed feet'.
