A Lahore-based barber’s unusual technique has found fans even in Pakistan’s cricket stars like former captain Inzamam ul Haq, coach Mickey Arthur and cricketers such as Umar Akmal and Sohail Tanvir.
Thirty-three-year-old Sadiq Ali holds 15 sharp scissors in one hand and uses them all simultaneously to give his clients his signature ‘spicy’ haircut, reports The Daily Mail.
“It took me at least five years to hone my skills. [The scissors] were heavy and it was difficult to make them work all at one time,” said Ali, who has been a hairdresser for 15 years.
His tiny salon is always brimming with customers, many patiently awaiting their turn to experience the unusual .
But not everyone gets the chance to experience Ali’s famed ‘spicy haircut’.
He serves only 20 people a day, as he wants to “do my job perfectly”.
According to the report, Ali was inspired by Chinese hairdresser Zedong Wang, who set a Guinness world record for using ten scissors all at once in 2007.
Ali hopes to someday set outdo the record and create history by using 16 scissors for his haircuts.
