Fire Haircuts – yes, they really do them (don’t try this at home – ever)

India is back in the news again. And if you have ever wondered how the perfect coiffure might be created, fancy hair is not just for women in India. A salon owner wanted to offer his male clientele something to rival the services on offer for women, so he pondered hard on what to create to attract the male head. It was no coincidence that this barber’s dad was a chemical engineer, and together they hatched the idea that would bound to be attractive to men who like things a little bit ‘fiery’.

Fire haircuts were born. Flammable chemicals and perfumes to prevent the hair smelling ‘charred’ are drizzled onto the head, before a candle is lit and bingo, after a dramatic blaze, and provided there are no third-degree burns, legend goes that weak and stray hairs are singed away, and the fire is combed out, leaving a ‘cool’ hair style and a happy customer for friends to envy – particularly on social media. Fire haircuts are available currently only at Adonis salon in Mumbai, where this would set you back about £8. Flame red, with smoky accents please.

Water, heat, chemicals and flammable materials are all in profusion in a hair and beauty salon, so fire safety needs special care.
