Get Fleeced

Announcing Fifth Avenue's latest craze - the Shearer's haircut. This old Aussie bushman's method is guaranteed to please time-poor Noo Yorkas!

Rub methylated spirit liberally into customer's scalp. Light with a match. Watch mesmerised for about a second and a half, then drop a soaking wet towel in the flaming bonce. Rub towel vigorously over now denuded noggin, holding nose with free hand.

Special bulk discount for school groups to solve nit infestations.

The pyrophobic may care to opt for the basin cut, which we share apparently with the rural areas of the USA, or the full service shearer's grapple, where we upend you, straddle you, and run the electric shears up and down your tummy.

But what happens if you are a true Aussie and want a mullet?

[miasese] as our friendly staff drag you out of the waiting pen, you may atempt to describe your desired outcome.

This is seriously close to being a viable way of relieving bored rich people of their cash while setting fire to them. Just needs the right marketing.

Singeing used to be used for triming hair - is this really original? (I don't know exactly how the singeing was achieved; some unhelpful Google references mention tapers.)

I remember a Ripley's episode about it. [link]
