Sometimes, when you go to get a haircut and ask your hairdresser to try out a new style, it can be pretty nerve-wracking since you just have to trust their vision and expertise completely. But how do you feel about venturing to Vietnam to get your hair cut by a hairdresser that wields a samurai sword?

Hairdresser Nguyen Hoang Hung was never trained as a samurai, but after participating in a game show that required him to cut hair with a handsaw, Hung was inspired. After honing his skill on dummy heads with wigs, he began introducing this Fear Factor-style option for hair cutting at his salon. Now, Hung works exclusively with a Wakizashi sword for cutting hair, which is traditionally used for fighting in close quarters.
