Havana, CUBA + You + Scissors=Making Scissor History!

Global Monument honoring all Hairdressers and Barbers

What to make hairdressing history with us? Donate your old, broken, even rusty scissors to be welded to a 9 foot scissor Sculpture!


In Havana, Cuba there is hairdressers monument that is being created by the famous barber Gilberto Valladares know as Papito. He wants all of us who are passionate to join him.

This statue's message is simple. From many come one: a united vision of our profession and its importance to the lives we touch. If only these scissors could talk!

Scissor Mission Video

Papito's scissor sculpture is looking for 1500 hairdressers/barbers old, used, or broken scissors to honor the lives that we touch and the honor of being an important part of our community globally!  Donate your old scissors by  to our on going project. Because there is no postal service that will accept sharp scissors in the mail from the US or anywhere, I will personally deliver them to Papito, and send you a certificate when I return. Thank you for helping to make history! America and Cuba unite!

Update as of May 16th 2016: Papito wants to say Thank You!
