Is this the most extreme hairdresser ever? Daredevil barber quits his job to travel around the world giving extreme haircuts
Is this the world’s most extreme hairdresser? This daredevil barber quit his job to travel round the world – cutting hair in the most bizarre places.
Denis Yushin loves travelling and cutting hair – and the barber decided to combine his talents and ditch his job to travel the world on his motorbike, funding the trip with extreme haircuts.
Going by the nickname “Motobarber”, Denis has chopped and trimmed under the sea, on top of a live volcano and even while paragliding 1,000 feet above the ground in exoctic locations including Mongolia, China and the Philippines as he makes his way around the globe.
Denis, from Krasnoyarsk, Russia, started his round-the-world trip last year – leaving behind his wife and young daughter to jet set across the globe, cutting hair as he goes.
Travelling around on his motorbike, especially equipped for his hairdressing equipment, globe-trotting Denis exchanges bizarre haircuts in the most unlikely places for food and fuel.
Denis, 30, who is currently in Vietnam, said: “I’m into extreme things – I love skiing, snowboarding, climbing, skydiving, motocross, surfing – and I love my job.
“So I decided one day to combine all my passions and travel the world.
“I love experimenting with different things – I don’t have a plan, I improvise as I go along, but I’m very happy with how it’s working out.
“Everyone has loved the experience – even in the most extreme locations my haircuts are the best quality, and people are very happy with the outcome.
“It has been difficult – the underwater haircut in the Philippines was the most difficult one for me, but also one of my favourites.
“The next thing I want to try is a haircut in the sky – skydiving is next on my list.”
