Many parents are proud of their children and can’t wait to show off their impressive skills to the world; even if it just means sticking their latest painting on the refrigerator. However, how many parents can say that their child has their career path mapped out for them from the age of six? Not many! This 6-year-old kid is proving he has what it takes to become the next Vidal Sassoon.
Meet Jiang Hongqi
Hailing from Suining, in the Sichuan province, Jianq Hongqi may only be six years old, but he is already taking the world by storm. Both of the young boy’s parents are hairdressers, meaning that he grew up in their hair salon watching all of the magic happen. For some, this might have meant that they got older, took a hairdressing course, and became a hairdresser when they were a grown up. For Jianq Hongqi, however, he decided to start much earlier.
In a video on the South China Morning Post Twitter page, the world watched in awe as this 6-year-old boy skillfully cut the hair of his willing model. It wasn’t the cut of hack job you’d expect from a child who is barely old enough to use scissors, though, as Jianq has the kind of expertise you’d want from a professional hairdresser. The video has since racked up thousands of views and this little boy is going viral.
No one could quite believe it as little Jianq Hongqi skillfully trimmed the woman’s hair with precision, before grabbing his hairdryer and giving her the perfect blowout. He even uses clippers to ensure the ends of the hair are perfectly straight. One commenter couldn’t help but notice the incredible dexterity show for a 6-year-old boy!
It seems as though this young man has a bright future ahead of him and could easily become the world’s youngest professional hairdresser. He’ll soon have people lining up to get their hair cut by him!
