Sexy Scissors, 12:57, produced and directed by Angela Aguayo
Metal plates, craftsman tool chests, pictures of pin-up models on the wall…No, this is not an auto shop but Austin’s most unique men’s haircutting alternative. Coined by some as the Hooters of haircuts, “Sexy Scissors” is a commercially masculine space of negotiation. For under $20 men can get their haircut in an auto shop environment, receive complementary beer, a massage for $1 a minute and a haircut by a sexy and scarcely dressed stylist. This film explores the funky vortex of sex, power, masculinity and the endless journey to get the perfect haircut.
