Russian hairstylist Daniil Istomin is changing the haircutting game one chop at a time by using a pretty unconventional tool to cut clients' hair: an ax. View this photo on Instagram @istomin_daniil / Via instagram.com Istomin's method is super chill: clients either kneel or lay down and place their head on a large wooden cutting board, and then Istomin takes an ax (OR TWO), and starts chopping away.

View this photo on Instagram @istomin_daniil_ / Via instagram.com I'm simultaneously amazed and terrified watching people subject their heads to Istomin's axes, but I think it's safe to say Sweeney Todd and Edward Scissorhands have nothing on Istomin and his salon.

So, if it takes an ax to get my fringe to look this good, then sign me up twice. youtube.com So next time you're in Russia and think, "You know, I could go for a haircut with a side of danger right about now," maybe schedule an appointment with Istomin.
