We've heard of candles being used to remedy split ends before, but have never seen this crazy cut. In this video posted on Youtube by user Earthling, a barber seems to be putting some kind of flammable powder on a customer's hair and setting it completely on fire with a lighter. He then uses two combs to style, while pieces of burnt hair fall to the floor.
