A SAMURAI sword wielding hairdresser has become a social media sensation after a video was uploaded showing him shearing a client’s long curly hair with the long blade.

Rather than using traditional scissors or clippers, Madrid-based barber, Alberto Olmedo, can be seen using several sharp swords to expertly hack at the woman’s hair.

In the clip, videod by a stunned friend of the client, Alberto then dons Wolverine-like claws and blades on his fingers to finish off the styling as his female client leans back in her chair and lets her hair spill over the edge.


The barber defends his bizarre methods by claiming the unusual tools ensure that he cuts both sides of the hair equally by allowing him to be precise.

Speaking to Middle East broadcaster Al Jazeera, Alberto said that ‘it’s a bit medieval, but sometimes you have to use your imagination to get positive results’.
