INSIDER meets the barber who has a penchant for cutting hair with fire! If you pop along to Antica Barbieria Colla barber shop in Milan, Italy you’ll get a trim that’ll get you hot under the collar, literally!


The barbers here use traditional Italian haircutting techniques. They’ve largely gone out of fashion in the country, but lots of locals believe that it’s the best way to cut hair.

They argue that this technique is actually good for your hair and is better for it than cutting it with scissors. Also, if your barber knows what they’re doing, they say it’s really safe. We’re still not sure though, would you get this risky trim?
