Dangerous Egyptian Haircut – level 2

12-08-2021 15:00

A relative once asked an Egyptian barber to cut his hair when the barber did not have his tools. Instead of rescheduling, he decided to get creative and used other tools.

There had to be something which the barber liked about cutting hair that way. He went on to cut people’s hair with a hammer, a razor a knife, or meat cleavers at his salon. ‘The Joker’, as people call the barber, hopes to inspire other young barbers to try his methods, too.

One customer said that he was scared and worried at first, but then he liked his haircut.

Difficult words: reschedule (to make plans to do something another time), meat cleavers (a tool with a heavy, broad blade, used for chopping meat).
