Nguyen Dzung has now turned his barbershop in Hong Mai street in Hanoi’s Hai Ba Trung district into a popular venue for football fans during the World Cup.
Many young men have asked him for special haircuts with images of footballers.
With eight years of experiences and artistic instinct, the special haircuts are a piece of cake for Dzung.
Firstly, he sketches a picture on his client’s head. Then he uses scissors and trimmers to finish it. It takes one to three hours for the barber to complete a haircut.
“The thicker and longer the hair is, the more beautiful the haircut is, said Dzung, owner of the Boss Barbershop. “For Asian people with thin hairs, it takes more time to complete the haircut,” he added.
Fans of the sport are happy to stay for a few hours just for a haircut.
Nguyen Xuan Duong, a client of the barbershop said he was pleased with his new hair style with image of his idol.
“My haircut features Dudu Lima because I admire his great technique and style of play.”
Another client, Pham Quang Huy, said he chose Sergio Ramos as the defender had many times successfully saved his team from their rivals’ attacks.
The trend has been spreading among football fans. The haircut also pulls people closer to each other during the sports event.
