Flame-throwing Russian barber sets client’s hair alight in name of fashion (VIDEO)

We see viral hair videos all the time, and some make us 😂 or 😳. Here's a great example! Please understand the Cosmetology laws differ "around the globe", and many salons in other countries are not regulated or need to be licensed. When they say that this method is "gaining popularity", they're perhaps talking only about its views on line, not the actual idea of cutting hair with fire! (Please, don't).
Under current USA Cosmetology laws, (which also differ state-to-state) this method of cutting with an open 🔥 would NEVER be allowed.
No. Nope. Never.
So, this summer, if you happen to be traveling (here or abroad) and see this performed in a "salon" or anywhere... You might want to check the local laws, and perhaps RUN the other way. Fast. 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻🔥 Russia is perfecting what is literally the hottest trend in hair styling with a St Petersburg barber putting his client in the line of fire – because he’s worth it.

Wow! There were some GREAT TASTES tonight at the The Taste Of West Seattle benefit for the West Seattle Helpline! Sue & Heather could not taste everything... But what they did taste were delicious bites of awesome! What a fun way to support a great cause! #community

'Shine Line' Hair Trend Dyes a Brilliant Optical Illusion into Women's Hair

Move over OMBRÉ... Bring on the SHINE LINE! #stunning #funhairdontcare #boldandbeautiful One of the new hair trends for 2017 is an optical illusion. Known as the shine line hair trend, it looks like a rainbow laser beam is pointed at your hair.

With the warm weather forecasted this week, we've had some openings creep into the books for color & cut combos... Including ONE combo for today!

We also have ONE "Perm" spot left for THIS WEDNESDAY!

Procrastinators BEWARE! If you put it off until next week, you just might be out of luck. Don't forget, we'll be closed next Monday for the holiday!


We opened our doors this morning to perform cuts for two of the @artswestplayhouse actors for the upcoming production of #SweenyTodd! You'll have to check out the play June 1-July 1 to see what happens to their characters on stage! #demonbarberoffleetstreet #menshair #menshaircut #menshairstyle
