Flamboyant Hairdresser Cuts (Read: Burns) Hair With Laser Lightsaber

January 31, 2019



Remember Madrid, Spain salon owner Alberto Olmedo? You know, the one who cuts hair with a blowtorch, dual samurai swords and razor talons? Well apparently now he's added a purple laser lightsaber to the arsenal at his hairdressing station. No word if it's safe to dunk in the blue stuff.

''We are not cutting with a solid material, we are cutting with a beam of light. There is no friction, no breakage, it is a clean cut that at the same time cauterises,'' Olmedo says in the video.

''This laser has the capacity to cut metal, but it is harmless, you have to know how to handle it,'' he added.

Wait -- so the laser has the capacity to cut metal, but is harmless, but you have to know how to handle it? Those sound like conflicting messages. Also, does this guy really not know how to use scissors? This sounds like a gimmick. Now if you'll excuse me....Hi, yes -- I'm here for my ten o'clock (I'm a sucker for gimmicks).

Keep going for a video of the hairsabering in action.

Thanks to hairless, the perfect tipster for an article about laser lightsaber haircuts.

    I could cut my own hair faster than watching this video. I can only imagine how long it takes to cut the hair with this slow burning technique…

  • GeneralDisorder

    So... the fruitcake who runs a salon where he burns hair with a pocket torch, cuts hair with samurai swords, mall ninja claws, and other dumb shit... now using lasers... with no eye protection. Good for him.

  • AGirlNamedMichael

    So very stupid...not only is this incredibly foolish to allow someone to do this to your hair, but hair has zero need to be "cauterized". You cauterize a wound to stop bleeding, so that will only make a difference once he accidentally drops that thing on one of his victi...I mean, clients.

    And not a single laser goggle in sight. Wow! Where do I sign up for the free lawsuit?

    I fast forwarded to the end and just like I suspected, the final haircut looked absolutely terrible on that lady. I hope she didn't pay for that.

    Hair is a solid and without blood vessels. There is no need to 'cauterize'. Hair does burn and melt, however. Melted ends isn't exactly great either.

  • Ivanna Pewpalott

    dont buy a diet book from a fat author and dont get your hair cut by a guy who sports that hairdo

  • Deksam

    Who will cut his hair, when he is the only hairdresser in town?

  • tim

    I see someone else also read that Encyclopedia Brown story.

  • He's a hairdresser.
    That's the sort of hair styles hairdressers have!

  • Nicholas Conrad

    But it takes so long :/

  • Mark

    At least its safer than the flame haircuts I have been seeing recently

  • Ollie Williams

    I can't wait for the first lawsuit.

  • WhiteEagle2

    I can't see anything that could go wrong with high-powered lasers in a room with mirrors and windows. No literally, I can't see because I'm now blind.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    How can you cauterize hair? It can't bleed or get infected...

  • WhiteEagle2

    While I agree with the no bleeding point, cauterization actually increases the risk of infection.

  • AGirlNamedMichael

    Cauterization has its uses in surgery and certain other procedures, and is only used in small increments. It only increases the risk of infection if it is used on large areas, which means it's literally a burn.
