It's one of the hippest barbershops in Buenos Aires but with a difference. 

Barber Gabriel Heredia was born with no forearms or hands. Following in the footsteps of his hairdresser brother, Heredia learned how to not let his disability get in the way of every process of cutting and styling. Heredia said (in Spanish), "There are people who when they see me aren't really excited to get their haircut with me, but when they see the finished haircut at the end, they're speechless, really. You always have to try to get ahead, and not let yourself get distracted by what others might say." And Heredia is proving himself. He's not only got hundreds of happy clients but he's also started entering hair styling competitions in his attempt to become a cut above the rest.
