Have you ever seen hair stylist cutting hair with Fire & Blindfolded or Glass or papercutter? Imagine, a Stylist burning your hair with fire, and sometimes that you are also blindfolded? Scary isn't? but its not like that; its fun and it's an art. Nadeem, 26, Limca Book of world record Holder (cutting hair with fire or by cutting hair blind folded, piece of Glass & papercutter). He was also appreciated by Guiness Book of World records. He work as a Public Relation Officer at o­ne of the leading hospital in Mohali and also as a Free Lancer Computer Professional (Hardware & Web designing) and also as a Hair Stylist & Colorist at REX SALON, Chandigarh.

You may find it quite weird as there is no relation between these two professions. There are websites like (American Magazine), (South Asian Newspaper in Florida, California, Uk etc),,,, and newspapers like The Tribune, The Indian Express, Hindustan Times’ Amar Ujala, Dainik Bhaskar published about Him (you can visit for scanned copies of newspapers at ) and I was also featured in various TV channels SAHARA SAMAY, Doordarshan, AXN, Siti Cable, Prime ChaNNEL, India TV and others His father runs a salon in Chandigarh and According to Him, he always hated to be a Hair Dresser may be because of people's opinion (Nai, Hajjam) about this profession.

After completing my studies he went to Mumbai for work, unluckily he couldn't find a good job so he started sitting at my uncle's Salon in Mumbai. He got a job as a computer programmer but at free time he use to see my uncle working o­n the hair. After 2 year or so he hired a cyber café o­n contract basis so couldn't concentrate o­n hair styling so an Idea Struck into his mind, and he started learning about hair o­n net.

He surfed almost each and every site o­n hair, hair dressing, coloring, Styling etc and use to read interviews of top hair stylists of the world. He use to sit o­n net for hours and use to learn different tips and techniques and use to practice o­n my Cyber café's client . He says

"It's been 7 years I have learnt everything from structure of hair to hair cutting to hair Coloring and Still learning. Hair dressing has become my passion"

He even did hair coloring diploma from L'Oreal and Schwarzkopf. Also have attended & participated in different hair cutting Competition (in 2000 organized at World Trade Centre) & Seminars in Mumbai. He have been attending various workshops and seminars so He isin touch with existing latest styles, trends and always in pace with the trends & lifestyles.

Nadeem Says "Frankly, I was never interested in becoming a hairstylist. I planned o­n taking up Engineering and for that, I even did computer diploma and stuff. However, somewhere down the line I changed my mind and started working o­n hair" Now he can cut hair Cut hair using Clippers, Scissors, Razor, Candle Fire, Piece of Glass, Razors and even blind folded.

He want to be Great Hair Stylist, that's his Passion, My Ambition, My Dream; He have no gurus or people in my field who he idolize. Nadeem Says

"It just my passion, my hard work, my scissors, my god who have helped me in mastering the art of hair dressing practically as well as theoretically. Although no o­ne can be a 100% perfect hair stylist because good hairstylist learns something with every new client"

Nadeem says

"hair styling is an art and a good hair stylist is always a very valuable commodity. A hair stylist that specializes in dealing with your hair type is even more valuable and much harder to come by. I really believe that the cut and style of your hair can transform your look and personality from grossly ugly to a glamorous look"


Now he is teaching people this art.

"I believe sharing our knowledge & skills is o­nly way to keep yourself o­n top" Grins Nadeem.

There is lot of potential in this hair industry, people are now aware its not o­nly their cloths, jewellery that describes them. Its also their hair.
