Bill Clinton once had a haircut worth $200 where they used fire instead of scissors to cut the hair. It became a huge scandal - why a sitting President will spend $200 on a haircut!

It is indeed fascinating. But it is even more dangerous, I call it more of a stunt and there are no safety measures taken for sure if this fire game gets out of control or someone got panic. Hope everyone and the shop stays safe from fire or any accident.

This is craziness not fashion. You are putting fire on your head with flammable liquid. Clearly proves people have no brains to differentiate between safe and unsafe.

Using fire to haircut unacceptable, it can be injurious to hairs as well as scalp.

I certainly have gotten a haircut from a turkish barber who used a small flame to burn the hair around my ear. I don't think it is a good idea to burn the hair on your head like that.
