Fire cutting is an unusual technique using fire to cut a customer’s hair. The customer’s hair gets covered in a flammable powder, which is then set on fire with a small lighter. The barber combs the flames with one hand and trims the hair with the other.

Once the flames burn out, the barber continues with the haircut. The hairdresser then combs through the customer’s hair and shakes some more powder on their head, which sets the customer’s hair on fire again. Some barbers use candles for styling their customers’ hair, especially to remove split ends.
