Emma, Rachel and Shareen

Voices in the hairdressers

Voices explores our rich colourful language and examines its many colloquialisms, all from a local perspective. Nina Davey visited Creations Hair Salon in Truro to meet Rachel, Shareen and Emma.


Emma, Rachel and Shareen are fun loving girls who look out for each other.

They work, and party together, in Truro. The girls have their own thoughts and feelings about life in Cornwall and the everyday language they use.

Shareen is the most outspoken. It was Shareen who got the girls together to talk to the BBC. All the girls agree they speak differently when working.

Rachel
Rachel

Rachel is the quietest of the trio of friends but follows the hairdresser's conversation with delight.

Emma isn't Cornish but has picked up the lingo.

What a man calls his girlfriend sparked a good conversation. Thingummy what's his tuss?

Lots of finger clicking to show you have forgotten a name. All the girls agree there is a standard form for something you can't remember.

Listen now to all the girls talking to Nina Davey as part of the BBC's Voices campaign
