Article in HJi Team Akito are asking hairdressers to donate their old scissors to help build a monumental sculpture in Barber Alley in Havana. Gilberto Valladares AKA Papito el peluquero ( Daddy the hairdresser) is wanting 1500 used hairdressing scissors from stylists around the world.
On 27th December 2016 at the Juan Valdas event in Cuba, the 9 foot tall scissor sculpture will be unveiled. Hairdressers who donate their scissors will receive a certificate and their name will be placed on the base of the sculpture.

Team Akito will be sending a scissor parcel on 3rd December 2016.
I received a pair from a stylist in Flintshire UK. Thank you Charlotte Roberts and to Akito Scissors for helping us spread this once in lifetime monument! It takes a village.
