Magdalena ​Rycsko, the owner of Hairrari Barber Salons, owns three thriving barber shops in NYC and Brooklyn​. Unlike many barber salons in the city, hers are not hyper-masculine, nor stiff and inaccessible. Rather, she aims to cultivate a community among hipster, queer, trans, and all other folk. Anyone who wants an amazing cut is welcome here. Nearly 12 years ago, Magdalena attended school to become a hairdresser, never imagining that barber shops would be in her future – but after shampooing and assisting and cutting at several salons, she finally decided to take the plunge. ​Franck Bohbot explores the aesthetic of Magdalena’s lifestyle, ​work, and craft​. Between poetry and documentary, the visual storytelling and narration is simple, straight to the point, and cinematographically singular, giving a great woman a voice in this generally male-dominated field of work.
