WATCH: Meet the hairdresser who uses flames and swords to cut hair

Madrid-based coiffeur Alberto Olmedo may be one of the most unique hairdressers in the business.

Madrid-based hairdresser Alberto Olmedo runs a rather unique business.

He cuts hair using swords, metal "claws" and flames.

Olmedo felt scissors didn't give hair the flat vertical cut or layers that he desired, so he studied Renaissance paintings to find out how ancient barbers used to cut hair.

And over the last 10 years he has perfected the unusual techniques.

Next, Olmedo says he wants to start cutting hair with precision lasers.
