WATCH: Prof. Charmaine Gauci features in barber’s haircut art
An art which is increasing in its popularity is the barber haircut art images, that need a lot of precision and patience. The art includes the featuring of famous personalities on the skull of clients. Locally, a Moroccan barber has made a name for himself in haircutting art.
Famous football coach Jurgen Klopp, from Anfield to a barber’s salon. This wasn’t a haircut visit, but for the printing of his face on clients by Radouan – a Moroccan barber who came to Malta last December. He considers the barber’s trade as an art, which he develops from photos into a haircut art image of singers, artists and a football coach or player on his clients’ heads.
The barber salon’s owner Simon Azzopardi said Radouan’s haircut skills are well refined. “It was a coincidence…he showed us what he can do. We brought Radouan as a professional barber; he showed his skills and people started coming”.
We found a long list of artists, including images of legendary Freddie Mercury – a perfect haircut art on a Queen band fan. “It is a unique artwork, which takes three hours to perform. The client has to be aware that he needs to spend three hours here”.
For the current circumstances, the Moroccan barber also chose for a haircut artwork a dear personality – Public Health Superintendent Prof Charmaine Gauci, who also found her image featuring among the works of Radouan who performed the art from a mannequin bust.
