Why this barber shop was built to be a house of torture
A house of torment is built on top of a barber.
The house was constructed by architect Arun K. Arun in the early 1990s, and is named after his late mother, Barbie.
It is also the oldest surviving barbershop in the country.
“The original concept of the house was that it would be a place where Barbie could be in a state of mental concentration while she was being shaved,” said Barbie’s daughter, Yashar.
Yashar said she has spent her entire life trying to educate her mother on the importance of discipline and self-discipline.
“She would tell me, ‘Barbie, you’re my best friend.
When you’re shaved, you will never ever leave me.
You will always be my best girl.'”

“Barbie dreams are a way to remind you of who you are and who you want to become,” she said.
“You are not always going to look like this.
But you can always look like Barbie.”
