    The smell of burning hair alone would put me off.

    Certainly not. Would you? I have mine cut by a retired Italian haircutter in his kitchen for £10 a go and his wife Beryl sweeps up the hair at the end to stuff cushions with. No swords and no fire. I went last week and he showed me his Christmas tableau in the sitting room. So lovely!

    My grandad was a hairdresser, trained by Vidal Sassoon, and he'd have a lot to say about that man and his techniques.

    It looks pretty dangerous to me.

    On a trip to Paris a few years ago with three friends, we were dining in a bistro when a candle on the table set fire to one of the group's hair. She went on quaffing her vin rouge, unaware of the conflagration until I had the presence of mind to wrap her head in a table napkin. The burning hair smelt horrible. She was fine though and totally unperturbed.

    If I want my hair cut, I go to my salon of choice. If I want to see a cabaret act, I'll go to a nightclub or such like. There are some things which should not be mixed up and I think the video clip proves the point.

    As a child I had my hair cut by a French hair dresser using a cut throat razor. It was most uncomfortable as he had to pull the hair so hard before he cut. Although over 50 years ago, that was quite enough play-acting for me at a hairdressers. :confused:

    I don't have sufficient hair to make the technique viable or safe

    Snore. Some people would do anything to be different. Vaguely pathetic.

    No doubt the universe will punish me for my mean reaction by making my daughter decide to pierce herself stupid when she's old enough. So it goes.

    Certainly not!
    Must smell nice in there.
    I`ve recently got a haircut like this
    The hairdresser that gave me a haicut was also as a strange guy, but not nearly as bad as this one.

    Did the haircutter not notice he'd missed some straggling wisps at the side?

    Singeing used to be an option in barbers.

    I'm not sure the comedy plastic nose and glasses go well with it - presumably there's not a moustache involved? If the model turns 90 degrees will we be looking at a bobbed Groucho Marx?

    I wondered about those too.
