Hanoi tries to revive traditional haircut village

Numerous barbers from northern Vietnam gathered in Hanoi's Kim Lien Village on April 24 to offer free haircuts.


Kim Lien Village formerly famous for haircuts 

The festival drew the participation of around 30 barbers from 18 cities as part of series activities to help revive the village's traditional craft.

Kim Lien haircut village, in Dong Da District, has been around for a many decades.

The village reached its height in popularity between 1954 and 1968, which helped the careers of several barbers who went on to open hair salons in other areas. A number of well-known hairstylists learned their trade there.

In the 1970s and 1980s, about 80% of residents made their living by cutting hair. Now that percentage is much smaller.
