Sign me up! I'd like a close-cropped crew cut, please. And make sure that you don't take too much off the ears.
Alberto Olmedo, a hairstylist, invites you to take a seat in his elite salon in Madrid. Yes, he's getting out a blowtorch and a pair of katanas. Don't fidget while he uses them on you. Olmedo explains why his innovative methods are the best available:
"Hairdressers usually cut one side, and then the other... one side is always a bit different from the other, even if it is only a little bit.
"The only way to do it in an exact mathematical way is to cut both sides simultaneously."
And then he goes in on a woman's hair with two swords.
