Every barber has their own set of techniques they use to achieve the perfect cut, but most of them use the same tools. However, one daring barber has come up with a truly unique way to cut men’s hair — by setting it on fire.
The video shows the barber dousing the customer’s head with a flammable powder and liquid, then proceeding to set it ablaze. While the hair is afire, the barber uses two combs to brush persistently through it and trim where necessary.
Swapping scissors for fire, this exhilarating approach to a haircut clearly is quite the spectacle as well with a number of people crowding around to watch the barber at work. As the barber strategically combs through the flaming hair, pieces are visible falling onto the white cloth draping the customer. There’s definitely a level of skill necessary to not have the customer’s head set afire, but also to achieve an intended cut through this method.
