Meet the 'Star Wars hairdresser' who styles your hair with a laser cutter

This Spanish hairdresser known for his crazy katana haircuts is surprising customers with an innovative way of cutting hair by using a handheld laser.

Footage captured on January 29 shows barber Alberto Olmedo styling a customer’s hair by hovering a laser flame over the end of her locks.

‘’We are not cutting with a solid material, we are cutting with a beam of light. There is no friction, no breakage, it is a clean cut that at the same time cauterises,’’ Olmedo says in the video.

‘’This laser has the capacity to cut metal, but it is harmless, you have to know how to handle it,’’ he added.
