A 'Fast and Furious' Barber - 12 Jan 2015
At Torreto’s barbershop in Frankfurt, girls aren’t allowed, customers smoke cigars and have a glass of whisky as they get their hair cut and “what happens in the barbershop, stays in the barbershop,” as its owner says.

26-year-old Greek-born Alex “Torreto” Vellios doesn’t take kindly to being called a hairdresser. He sports tattoos of a razor and the word “barber” on his hand, uses soft cotton towels, sprays water from whisky bottles.

Clients wait three to four weeks to get an appointment with him.
