South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Old-school haircut tradition lives on in the hands of Hong Kong master barber Tiger Leung” – below is their description.
Tiger Leung has made a career out of cutting hair and giving clean shaves. For over 50 years, he has run his traditional barbershop in Hong Kong with a focus on an old-school approach to his craft. While similar shops have gradually faded away and closed over the years, Leung is determined to keep his business open for as long as he can. But today his customers are not only long-time clients who have become his good friends. Thanks to the attention his shop has received on social media, Leung’s business is getting attention from a whole new generation.

In This Story: Hong Kong
Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.
Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
