Okay, when I said hairstyles are all the rage on Instagram, I didn’t mean it literally! But this hairstylist from Russia decided to take it VERY literally and channel his rage with the help of an ax.
Yes, you read that right, an ax!
It’s terrifying but you can’t look away. His name is Daniil Istomin and – nor surprising at all, I guess – he’s Russian. One fine day Daniil decided he lost all his patience for the delicate hairstylist routine of comb and scissors, so he decided to simplify things a bit and grabbed an ax.
All it takes is one fast and loud CHOP! and away the hair goes!
Daniil has made quite a name for himself thanks to his special chopping skills, and here’s what it looks like:
Внимание внимание !!! В эту субботу смотрите очередной спец репортаж о сумасшедших Сибиряках и их смелости и невероятном умение проявлять себя . Сибиряки самые сумасшедшие в хорошем смысле слова , люди ! . В эту субботу на телеканале НТВ , в 14-10 , в программе «Поедем -поедим» , как мы смогли удивить англичанина Джона , нашим менталитетом и смелостью
The method is chill. All a client needs to do is kneel, or lay down and place their head on a thick wooden cutting block. Daniil then grabs his axes and starts chopping away their hair!
If that didn’t make your body pump some extra cortisol into your bloodstream, wait until you see his other employee using a blowtorch to burn off a woman’s hair.
I’m torn between feeling fascinated and terrified at people laying their heads calmly for this butcher hairstylist to do his work. I mean, where do you draw the line?
But say what you want about Daniil, he’s one great hairstylist. Clients are happy with their hair, and that’s all that matters, right? There are worse ways to lose an ear.
I have only one question, however. When is he going to start using a chainsaw?
So what do you girls, and guys, think? Would you schedule an appointment with Daniil Istomin and his ax? If you really hate your hair, Russia is the place to go!
