Huang Wenxiang is the owner of the Qing Xing barbershop in Wuhan, and has developed a unique technique for cutting hair. The 91-year-old uses a hot iron bar to trim his customers' hair.

He has practised this traditional hairdressing skill for more than 70 years, and is not planning on retiring just yet.

"I will keep working until the spring festival, and then I will take a few days off. The break is quite long, and will probably last for 15 days," said the barber on Wednesday.

Despite Huang Wenxiang's advanced age, Mr. Yang, a customer, said that the grandpa has steady hands.

"I think although the grandpa is in his nineties, he still works in his favourite industry. I admire him very much," commented Zhang Tao, another customer.
