All The Rage: Getting Your Hair Cut With Fire

January 17, 2018


This are several videos from the Kaizo Salon N Spa in Mumbai, India of customers receiving the 'Kaizo Special Fire Haircut Treatment' (previously: this other salon owner who cuts hair with fire, dual samurai swords, and razor talons). In their own words while I try to charge my roommate $40 to set his head on fire in the bathtub:

Burn away your bad and damaged hair with Kaizo's special Fire Haircut treatment.

Cool, but can't you just cut the bad and damaged hair instead? What's so great about burning it besides the amazing smell? Wait a minute -- you forgot to order scissors again, didn't you? Haha, I knew it! Let me drink that blue stuff.

Keep going for the videos.

Thanks to Closet Nerd, who can't wait for the inevitable hot lava facial treatment.

    The trick there seems to be to give them a proper haircut, use a lot of vasoline around the hairline, lubricate the hair with sufficient amounts of ethanol fuel gel, then burn off the gel while doing literally nothing to the hair, to give them the illusion of some sort of luxurious experience.

    Seems like a pretty good way to coerce money from someone with too much cash and not enough common sense.

    They used to use fire to cut hair in the past. Supposedly according to this old timey western town I went to it was because it was better for split ends and because people didn't bathe a lot, it prevented skin infections that people got more when they cut hair and didn't clean the tiny hair pieces off their neck and stuff. They called it hair singeing. (got it off of this page)

    Is the hair even actually burning or is it just a visual thing while the fire burns what ever flammable substance they put in the person's hair away?

    Toxic fumes? Any one?

  • TheQiwiMan

    The smell of burning hair is easily in the top 3 worst smells in existence.

    But hey, whatever floats your boat!

  • GeneralDisorder

    I'd definitely take burning hair over the smell of exploded lead-acid battery.

  • James Mcelroy

    I...I don't understand. No, the more i think about it, the less i understand it.

  • Meh

    That's just absolutely retarded.

  • Closet Nerd

    I'm gonna schedule an up-sack-crack-wax... or I guess, an up-sack-crack-burn

    Smoke 'em if you got 'em.
