A hairdresser has adopted an Edward Scissorhands-like approach to cutting hair.
Spaniard Alberto Olmedo has shocked clients with his "medieval methods" of hairdressing, as he uses a "samurai technique" with two swords, a mini blow torch and finger scissors, on clients in his salon in Madrid.
He said: "The only way to it in an exact mathematical way is to cut both sides simultaneously."
After cutting the hair, Alberto then uses a blow torch at 1,300 degrees C to singe and shape the hair.
Alberto confessed: "Sometimes you have to use a bit of your imagination to get positive results."
