Badass Asian Barber

December 8th, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Diana

If somebody cuts me off on the freeway, I get hit with a sudden adrenaline rush–racing heart, wild eyes. My tongue gets mean, road rage kicks in, I’m either honking or braking or hitting the gas. After it’s all said and done my heart rate might return to normal, maybe in about fifteen minutes. But for the rest of the drive–if not the day–I’m rarely the same. The incident shocks my core a little bit, and that’s a hard sensation to shake. Don’t trust me with heavy machinery or fine Japanese knives after that. Don’t even hand me the remote control! I’m useless!

So how does barber Heng Song, of Alaska, witness an SUV blowing through the front window of his shop (narrowly missing his cutting station)–and resume his job to completion? (After taking a moment to confirm everyone was safe and the police were being called, of course.)


Song is one Badass Asian Barber, that’s for sure. And a cooler cuke than I could ever dream to be.

Man, I’m so curious to know how that haircut turned out.

  1. Some serious badass-iness.

    I’d like to act out on my road rage sometimes. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to drive faster than 47 miles per hour, so the offender is long gone before I can flick a finger. Obviously, I am awesome.

    @flourish your lack of speed probably saves lives! you are totally awesome.

    this is why China owns the US today; we have no head for business.

    Song made two quick computations:

    first, the driver’s insurance would pay- plenty, because of the damage, loss of business, mental trauma to Song and the customer. perhaps the city shares in the liability as well. did the driver’s insurance lap? even better. Song will take everything he owns and would leave to his children.

    second, if he doesn’t finish the cut, he won’t get paid and the sooner he does the sooner his chair will be ready for the next customer.

    Confucius said: ‘watch the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.’ or maybe that was Jackie Chan,

    …and sorry Diana 47mph is only half my average speed on the highway, but I don’t cut people off. More like fly by.

    When the barber was finished his customer asked “How much for the haircut?”

    Barber: “That will be ten thousand dollars please.”
