Adam Johnson has now completed the first month of his six-year jail sentence and is reportedly keen to try his hand at something new as he contemplates the best prison job.
According to the Mirror, Johnson wants to do a hairdressing course.
Not only would this allow Johnson to gain a valuable qualification in barber’s shop work and hairdressing, but he would also follow in the footsteps of his mum, Sonia, who used to work as a hairdresser.
