Off with her hair! Hairdressers use axes and swords in bizarre "duel"

Spanish hairdressers Alberto Olmedo and Lucas Boyero put on a bizarre spectacle on Sunday by cutting the hair of two women with axes and swords.

The strange event in the town of Azuqueca de Henares, near Madrid saw the two men dressed in medieval costumes chop away at the locks of female models with the weapons.

The hairdressers described the event as a "duel" although it was unclear who won but at least both the models survived with nothing more than cuts to their hair.
