Glasgow-based, entertainment indie, Very Nice has been recommissioned to produce another 12 episodes of Mirror Mirror for BBC Scotland.

The first series transmitted earlier this year and was a format created by Andrew Robertson and Henry Imbert from Very Nice.

The series recorded honest conversations filmed with a hidden camera behind the mirrors of Scotland’s hairdressers with customers and hairdressers sharing views on everything from pampered pets to tattoos, Donald Trump to the Royal Family and death, love and happiness.

Some of the familiar faces will return for the second series including Motherwell’s Ian the singing barber, Spiritual hairdresser Rachel-Jane in Inverness and Ayr’s Jim Higgins. There will also be new hairdressers and clients from across the Highlands, the borders and Aberdeen joining the conversation.

BBC Head of Multiplatform Commissioning Steve Carson said: “Mirror Mirror brilliantly captures Scotland’s candour, it is warm and full of heart and humour.”

Once again Very Nice will use fixed-rig hidden cameras from behind the mirrors of barbers, hairdressers and beauty salons recording the real and honest conversations of a nation.

Very Nice Managing Director, Andrew Robertson, said: “The reaction to the first series was as we had hoped and to have this recommission is testament to that. In a world where everyone has their heads down in social media, we really felt that having an hour to yourself to chat to your hairdresser and ‘chew the fat’ would make for a fascinating insight into the burning issues of the day. The search is on across Scotland to find more hairdressers and their clients to share their inner most thoughts for this second series to make it as funny and as engaging as the first.”

Filming will start later this year and will include locations in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, The outer Hebrides, Dunfermline, St Andrews, The Shetlands, Ayr and Perth. Henry Imbert and Andrew Robertson are Executive Producers for Very Nice.
