Dhaka, 25 Dec, Abnews: This wizard barber in Pakistan flaunts 15 pairs of scissors simultaneously while giving a haircut to his clients, reports the Khaleej Times.
Sadiq Ali, in his thirties, takes not more than 20 minutes for each haircut and charges just US$2 for ‘the spicy haircut’, a name he has given for the cut.
Ali runs a salon in Punjab, Pakistan, and is elite clientele list includes cricketers Umar Akmal, Sohail Tanvir, coach Mickey Arthur and Inzamam-ul-Haq, according to Pakistan Daily.

‘Slowly, however, I got used to holding them and using them successfully for haircuts.’
Ali has been into the profession for 15 years and was inspired by Chinese hairdresser Zedong Wang who set a Guinness world record in 2007 for using ten scissors together while giving a haircut.
‘I saw his act on internet was spellbound by his talent. He was unbelievable. I was (so) inspired by him that I decided to outdo him. Slowly, however, I got used to holding them and using them successfully for haircuts,’ he adds. – Agency
