Believe It or Not...The Blindfolded Italian Barber!

Tuesday, 29 May 2018 10:36

From Olginate in the Northern Italian province of Lecco hails master barber Remigio Morelli – now a social media sensation after conquering the web with his blindfolded cuts. His secret? Almost 40 years of experience and incredible manual dexterity!

A barber since 1981, Remigio Morelli is owner of the "L'Estro" salon in the Italian town of Olginate. His skill and passion for the craft has traversed national and international boundaries thanks to his incredible blindfolded in-salon performances!  "I started working as a barber when I was very young and by 24 I already had a shop of my own,” explains Remigio. “International success has finally come my way thanks to my blindfolded video performance. The power of the web has shown to the world a skill which my clients have long-appreciated!” 

Trending began when a report on local media outlet LeccoToday rebounded across national borders – even being published on the English language Newsflare site as well as the French portal MinuteBuzz. In a mere two weeks the video had exceeded 390,000 views.  It even appeared on Italian TV, with news correspondent, Alessandro Mannucci, undergoing a blindfolded cut himself. "The real message that I want to convey with my blindfolded initiative is to cultivate true barbering talent,” continues Remiglio. “Only through professionalism, self-confidence, passion and pure skill can true salon success be achieved. It's not a game – it takes experience, attention, responsibility and, of course,  a great demonstration of trust on the part of my clients! "
