Here’s something you don’t see every day … Alberto Olmedo, a hairdresser in Madrid, Spain, cuts hair using the most unconventional of tools — Samurai swords and blow torches!
A video of Olmedo’s skills was posted to Facebook by AJ+ last week, and has since stirred a major buzz surrounding his unusual craft.
Although the process looks terrifying, the ending results appear flawless.
Olmedo told the Spanish news service, El Pais, that conventional haircutting often leaves the sides at varying lengths but his method cuts evenly, “The only way to do it in an exact mathematical way is to cut both sides simultaneously,” he said.
In the video, he refers to his style of cutting hair as “medieval.”
Olmedo reportedly started using swords to cut hair while “looking for a way of doing layers, but not so staggered and abrupt.”
He’s also reportedly taught his entire staff and his own wife how to use the swords on hair and they each have their own set.
Not everyone is totally receptive to the idea of using such dangerous weaponry on their hair.
Others commended Olmedo, not so much for the accuracy or beauty of the hairstyles but for his masterful handling of the scary weapons!
