Known by his clientele as Abo Tawila, Beirut’s very own barber-on-a-bike pedals his way around Burj al Barajneh every day to find his next curbside cut. He proudly cycles through the hood with his insignia painted onto the back of his makeshift barber shop of a bike. Always dapperly dressed, the 18-year-old’s signature outfit is complete with suspenders and a straw fedora – embellished with pins that represent his favorite tools.
Abo Tawila has now set up shop at Beirut’s Martyr Square, where he’s giving haircuts and beard trims to those who want to look their best while they practice their civic duties. Na3iman! Check out our video on the dapper Abo Tawila
