Barber's Hair-Raising Knife Technique Wins Fans on TikTok

A barber in Ibadan, Nigeria, offers her clients a hair-raising alternative to traditional haircutting techniques, using a knife to style their hair rather than scissors.

Lydia Ayodele posted footage of one of her clients making a blind choice between getting a haircut with scissors or a knife to TikTok on January 28. The client chose the less traditional option, and with that Ayodele got to work.

Ayodele’s footage of the cut, posted to her @queenlee_barbergirl TikTok account, has been viewed over 800,000 times, and she told Storyful that “a few” of her customers have requested the knife treatment since she shared the video. Credit: @queenlee_barbergirl via Storyful
