‘Edward Scissorhands’ of Haircuts Uses Fire and Samurai Swords to Create the Perfect ‘Do

Not since the mullet set the dividing line between sophisticated and Billy Ray Cyrus has hair caused such a stir.

Meet Alberto Olmedo, a hairdresser who owns a salon in Madrid and uses what can best be described as unorthodox methods when working with his clients.

He creates magic using a blowtorch and swords and, as you can see, he looks like someone Derek Zoolander would swear by.

Olmedo, who is considered a real-life Edward Scissorhands, says his methods are “medieval,” which makes you wonder if this is the only profession you can pull that off. You’re not going to go to a doctor whose training never went beyond “Drink this magical potion,” right? You’re not going to ask for a loan by approaching an alchemist, are you? You wouldn’t dream of hiring a lawyer whose idea of justice is to pillage the accused’s entire village, would you? Would you?

Olmedo is the first to admit that “sometimes you have to use a bit of your imagination to get positive results,” which also means “You should know that getting your done in his salon is potentially afire hazard.”
