Stori am Shirley Cartwright, gwraig sy'n torri gwallt, a'i ffrind gorau Oli. Maent yn ffufio partneriaeth wych, a chawn weld yr agweddau gwahanol ar ei bywyd doniol sy'n ymdebygu i opera sebon! Mae'r stori yn adeiladu at uchafbwynt pan geisia Shirley wneud argraff ar ei chariad mewn gwesty ym Manceinion.

A story about Shirley Cartwright - a mobile hairdresser who is assisted by Oli, her best friend and employee. They form a glorious partnership, and we see the various dimensions of her comic soap opera life. The story culminates in a climax, when Shirley tries to impress her boyfriend in a Manchester hotel.
If you like everything pink, this is the read for you. Pour yourself a glass of pink fizz and then immerse yourself in Pritchard’s character Shirley, from her fluffy pink bedroom slippers to her pink quilted bed, and especially the ‘little pink diary’ that tells all. You will find yourself whisked off to a world of girlish giggles and charismatic gays, all searching for the love of their lives among the paraphernalia of the Cuts ‘n’ Curls mobile hair salon.

Shirley is blonde, delicious and forty, mother of two teenage children, Jason and Fiona. She married her childhood sweetheart, who divorced her for another ‘model’ five years before our heroine started her ‘little pink diary’. Many of its hilarious pages are filled with the carry-ons of Oli, her best friend, drinking partner and workmate, the factory girls whose hair she and Oli ‘do’ on a Friday afternoon, and the characters that reside in the local residential home, where life begins nearer to eighty than forty.

Yes, it’s a read and a half – enjoy!

Bywgraffiad Awdur:
Nia Pritchard is a nurse and lives with her husband and three children on the north Wales coast.
Gwybodaeth Bellach:
Shirley runs a mobile hairdressing service from her Liverpool home. Ably assisted by her camp-as-a-row-of-pink-frillies sidekick, Oli, she trims and colours the locks of young and old, fraught and fancy-free, in the local pensioners' home and on the production line of Henshaw’s factory (while the boss's back is turned towards the eighteenth green). She’s good at her job, keeping her customers happy and not just on the hairdo front. The under-dryer gossip is harmless enough, though until Shirley and Oli are encouraged to use the tools of their trade to covertly trail a client’s philandering hubbie. Operation 'D&M' is the start of an unusual sideline for our perm-wielding duo, a cut above the usual shampoo and set.
