A MINEHEAD hairdresser was knocked for six when one of the biggest stars in world cricket agreed to go into business with him.

Dan James, who runs the Something Else hair salon in Minehead, first met West Indian cricket hero Chris Gayle when 'The Universe Boss' was playing for Somerset in 2016. The pair hit it off and Dan told Gayle about his range of hair products he had created under the Mr SE brand.

"One thing led to another and now Chris is a 50 per cent partner in the business," Mr James explained.

The products are currently being stocked in the Somerset County Sports shop in Taunton close to the Cooper Associates County Ground.

"I am really proud to be launching these new products with Chris," Mr James said.

"It is amazing that he is working with a small business in Minehead and I think it is definitely something worth shouting about."

Gayle, 40, is considered one of the greatest ever T20 batsman and is the most capped player for the West Indies. You can see footage of Chris Gayle launching the new products on the Mr SE Haircare Facebook page.
