Another Day, Another Hair Stylist Cutting Hair With Fire

July 25, 2018


(above, in the mirror: regret)

This is a video of California hair stylist JR D'Angeles torching a woman's hair because he claims that scissors cause split ends, and fire doesn't. Sure, fire can also prevent any ends at all. Previously: men's fire haircuts in India and this dude who cuts hair with fire, samurai swords AND razor talons. For reference, my mom still cuts my hair, and she only uses electric clippers and TLC.

JR D'Angeles, 54, smothers the woman's long brown hair in moisturizing serum containing an accelerant before igniting it. After letting the strands burn for a few seconds, he combs it through to make the burnt ends fall to the floor.

I like how he's just using a Bic lighter. That would definitely make me feel comfortable. Admittedly, his first few burns seem relatively controlled, but there's no way you can tell me that last one didn't get out of hand and he ruined that girl's cut. Man, that salon must smell heavenly. "Like barbecuing an Ewok." Mmmmm!

Keep going for the full video.

Thanks to Jaclyn P, who agrees fire can solve almost any problem, and not needing another haircut for a very long time is one of them.

    His favorite saying after making a Bad hairdo, "oh burn, next!"

    This is not a new thing. My great grandmother never cut her hair for her entire life. She would always singe it over the wood-burning stove in her kitchen.

  • Jenness

    This is actually a very old practice. However, the 'old school' way was to twist the hair into coils and use a beeswax candle to carefully singe the split ends that popped out of the coil. This just looks very uncontrollable, her hair didn't look healthier in the end and dangerous.

  • r212

    Yup. My great grandmother "cut" her hair this way all her life.

    How can anyone trust a barber who wears a hat??

    He probably just lights up his head.

  • I'm from California and I can tell you for a fact: No one wants to date a girl that has hair cut my scissors. Gasoline and fire, or GTFO.

  • Bling Nye

    Or those that only use biting sarcasm and cutting wit to take a little off the top.

  • GeneralDisorder

    It's all fun and games until you accidentally scorch someone's entire body and they die and haunt your children in their dreams.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Nature is balance. When they lose control of the flame and injure themselves, it's Nature beautifully punishing stupidity.

  • Munihausen

    That must smell wonderful.

  • Meh

    Why not just use the lawnmower if you clearly don't give a shit.

  • Chaz Gomez

    I think it would be more in the California Spirit if they start the hair on fire buy lighting up a fart...

  • will try this with my balls.
