Pakistani got talent. I will only try this if I get a guarantee the hair will grow again with no harm to my scalp.

Trump would love to have him as his hair stylist.

Insanity at its peak !!!

Hair are indeed damaged.

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!

When you have no electricity to use a hairdryer or hot brush!

I have seen barbers in Turkey burning unwanted hears on face and ears with a flame.

MuhammAd zafar iqbal Jan 18, 2017 06:12pm

Just for media stunts, no good work at all .

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.

Trump should become his customer

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.

Shahid Jan 18, 2017 10:24pm

Everybody wants to set everything on fire in this poor country :-)

rao Jan 18, 2017 10:29pm

stupidity using plastic comb during cutting...

Mujahid Jan 19, 2017 12:51am

No sense in giving it a try to create any kind of look.......

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

voltore Jan 19, 2017 03:41am

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.

MALIK FROM AUSTRALIA Jan 19, 2017 05:21am

I like Shafqat's invention. The man thinks out of the box. I hope his style spreads like a wild fire. Best wishes.

@A. A. W: Bill clinton's hair dresser was a lady from Afghanistan name Zahira , difinately she was using scisors not fire. 200.00 hair cut was done at some airport while he was traveling not being in Washington DC.
