During a previous interview with Bored Panda, he said: “I just want to make everyone look cool.”

"I suggest a look based on the client's facial shape or just how he seems as a person, I like to try to match the atmosphere,” the pro said.

I don’t hate the “Rukia” look, but the after cut is pretty good too.

Anyone can cut hair. But far from everyone can cut hair well. The very best professionals take your facial features and personal style into account, to create an ensemble that brings out your best features.

A great hairstylist will combine their own personal knowledge and skills, combining them with their clients’ requests. And the very best reward is a happy customer. You can tell that you’ve done a fantastic job if they return to your salon later on.

The vast majority of the clients who go to the hair salon for transformations are male (92%) while only a slim minority are female (8%). However, every single customer is given the highest quality care, no matter their gender or age.

If that mole wasn’t there I would’ve been convinced these were different people. Of different genders.

Currently, there are 5 stylists and 6 assistants working on the premises. They’re also closed on Mondays, so keep that in mind as you plan your next haircut. Meanwhile, if you’d like to surprise a friend or a loved one with a quality cut, the salon’s website has digital coupons available.

I think that style works in this case. He appears to have thicker hair and look more youthful.

Previously, Bored Panda tackled the topics of style, cutting hair, and finding the line between fashion and fashion mistakes during an interview with Guiliano Dore, from ‘Get Groomed,’ in the UK.

"The main difference between avant-garde and plain bad for a haircut is the focus on details and the whole idea behind the haircut. You would think that haircuts like the bowl cut are never gonna be trendy. Wrong. It’s happening and thanks to extremely talented hairstylists, we see a lot of hipsters rocking a very fashionable bowl. It’s all about pattern, symmetry, and (sometimes) controlled asymmetry. If I see patchy haircuts, holes or broken hairlines, I am gonna assume the worst," he told us earlier

Some of these are hard to compare because the lack of glasses adds another variable that has nothing to do with the haircut.

"If you want to cut your own hair at home, go with a safe option. Same-level buzz cuts are a safe choice. Home is not the place for challenging haircuts. For example, attempting a 0 to 2 high skin fade by yourself is not gonna work. Even professional barbers don’t do it themselves. I know this because they book each other on our app," Giuliano, from ‘Get Groomed,’ told Bored Panda earlier about cutting your hair at home. It’s usually best to reach out to a professional for their services.

"Being able to cut just based on the reflection of a mirror takes a whole new level of 4D chess and not everyone is ready for the challenge. I would also avoid sharp tools like razor blades. It’s absolutely possible to rock a very decent hairline without using razor blades at home. Clippers are your friends,” the Brit shared his thoughts on cutting hair with us earlier.

I’m glad he liked it but… I think he looked better with any other haircut, especially not one with curly pink
