The service at barber shops in Taiwan varies but that type of business lost its edge among expanding fancy salons all over the place. There is one in Hualien, however, generating buzz on social media not only for its old-school service, relaxing experience and excellent cutting skills, but also for the unique background of its owner.
Daniel Bullivant, 28 years old, was born in Birmingham, England. He started working in a barber shop when he was 13 and started to learn how to cut men’s hair and trim beards at the age of 16. He continued his training until the age of 20.
