There's a new way to get the cut and texture you want, apparently. It's not for the fainthearted but it's certainly innovative. This hairdresser in Madrid uses flames and swords to tend to his clients' locks and if nothing else, it's fun to watch. We're not sure we'd ever let a flame to our hair but it does seem to give you the choppy, feathered ends you might struggle to get with a pair of scissors. It certainly adds volume.
He uses flames to give the hair form and a Samurai sword - no less - to shape and trim and if you fancy yourself some layers, he'll pop on his claws and cut them in for you with his hands.
His name is Alberto Olmedo and he's known as a ninja hairdresser. Watch him at work here. His arguments against scissors are actually kind of convincing.
