Pakistani chopper haircut goes viral

Who says hair can only be “cut”? Pakistani alternative barber Abbas (Ali Abbas) is good at using a gun, kitchen knife, and even broken glass to cut customers’ hair.

In general, Abbas will first use the gun to help customers remove the end part of the hair, then use the kitchen knife and cutting board to further trim; if you encounter more hair customers, he will also use the broken glass in order to create a layered hairstyle.

Since the launch of this special haircutting service in 2016, Abbas’s barbershop in the eastern city of Lahar has been doing more and more business, and he himself is often invited to appear on TV. Abbas charges 1,000 rupees (about $6.57) for a regular haircut, doubling to 2,000 rupees for a chopper haircut.
