A barber in Holland, Kadir Demirel, uses fire instead of scissors to groom his customers’ hair.
Demirel has traded in his scissors for a flammable liquid that he sprays on his clients’ hair and sets on fire, notes Metro News.
The 39-year-old barber said he learned the fire technique during his training in Turkey:
Traditionally it was used as a way of burning away lice when there was no cure and it was also used to style and smooth hair as there were no hair dryers at the time. I use it to tame frizzy hair and burn away dead ends. Healthy hair isn’t damaged by this technique.
Kadir wouldn’t recommend anyone trying the fire trick without proper training:
My customers aren’t scared because they trust me and it’s not painful. I have one customer who is just seven years old and another who is eight.
