On leaving school, Mario trained for 3 years to become a professional hairdresser. He didn’t enjoy cutting a baby’s hair. They wouldn’t sit still and would wriggle and squirm. Scissors, consisting of a sharp point and sharp blades were not the ideal instrument to have so close to a baby’s face, eyes and ears! Although Mario never cut a baby or child he frequently nicked his own fingers when the baby made a sudden move! Cut fingers are very common among hairdressers! Having children, Mario thought there must be a safer way to trim their hair and so his journey began.
