NSFW is the name of the game with this short documentary. The career path that former women’s hairdresser/current naked barber Richard Savvy has built for himself will feel unusual for a lot of you, but it’s a safe space for him and his clients. And isn’t that what really matters?
(Once more with feeling: NSFW, from the moment you press play.)
Hey. Hey you.
Hopefully your reaction is a little less “I find this strange and ridiculous and it ruined my day!” and a little more “Well, that was an interesting look into someone else’s life.” (Either way, it’s OK. There were both reactions here on the Upworthy staff). I think we can all agree though — this is something else.
You have to admit though: To willingly open your “not normal” life up to scrutiny just to share the story of who you are is a brave thing. These two are being completely honest, and Richard is living his own advice (at 5:22 — you were listening to the words they were saying, right?):
It’s the way we should be in life, one thing that I embrace, not living to what we’re “meant” to be doing. … Having [a] normal job doesn’t appeal to me. … [Some] days I walk around the street, thinking i’m just a “normal fella'” like everyone else.
And then [I remember]. No, I’m not.
