Brief history of the 4 largest Beatle hairdressers in the world. Gerardo Weiss dreamed he cut his hair and the Beatles became a thematic Local hairdresser Beatle

Gerardo Weiss is the creator and founder of the Beatle salon of Buenos Aires. The international travel agencies begin to promote it from the news they received from tourists who visited, and because Barry Hayden, one of Penny Lane’s hairdressers, considered one of the top 4 Beatle hairdressers of the world. Gerardo is considered first beatlemaniacs and then hairdresser "Yes, first came my passion for the Beatles in '71 When I first heard "Love me do" and it was like a teleportation" he recalls. He was 11. "Then I asked who they were and they said they were the Beatles." It was a time of Beatle madness, music, clothing, way of life and a different world. Gerardo has his first album father bought it. "I asked some of my old Beatles and bought me an LP of the great successes of the first period, was simply called The Beatles," he says wistfully. The other way of approaching the group was "when my dad introduced me to Badia. I listened to the music program verdad, Radio Rivadavia. Was 14. Badia let me in, he was a great guy," he says, also shared the devotion to 4 Liverpool that Gerardo had before becoming a hairdresser. Gerardo Weiss clearly agrees that in those years Badia told him that perhaps could be brought back together. "Juan Alberto explained me things about The Beatles and dreamed of the reunion, and when playing together in 1974, Paul McCartney, John Lennon with Stevie Wonder and Harry Nilsson. Apoteótico That was".

"I think if John had not died at some point ended up coming together again. Wanted Paul and John," says Gerardo convinced.

After the death of Juan Alberto Badia, many believe that Gary Weiss is his heir and the most knowledgeable of the Beatles in the world.

The hairdresser came after and by accident. "Never stop with Beatlemania and all I had was spent on records, books, mementos and merchandising." Gerardo had to live and stay. Chose the hairdressing profession for 2 reasons. Stay close to their Beatles and "the girls" as good beatlemaniacs objects "I became a hairdresser looking for mine (girls) with a friend," remembers and smiles. "We said that hairdressers are all gays, so let's get into this that there are lots of girls and there is little competition," said Young. Now remembers and smiles again. "We were very young and we got along for the comments."

The hairdresser:

The Beatle Buenos Aires salon is located in Estaquio Cambieses 1848 South Flores. There Gerardo has its beatle shrine visited by tourists from around the world, but also cuts hair for men and women. "I make more elaborate than traditional hair salons", but not only cuts Beatles clarifies. "To label me think Beatle barber I attend only men but also girls I attend." "I recently did a similar cut to Jane Asher. She was an actress who was a girlfriend of Paul." After Paul met and married Linda. "Now I want to specialize in hairstyles of the 60s, more elaborate, they are hard work, but are very good." Therefore I do not like what they do today. Now it's all much easier, machine, jopito and bye "His beginnings were before the 80" In 78 I became a hairdresser (bad time in Argentina for cutting Beatle) and worked with Giordano. "It was only several years later when "in 1988 I opened a salon with rare cuts, people went with silver or green hair (after Rodrigo put it fashionable) and the Beatles courts." Now try to impose the hairstyles that were used in the 60s.

I had a dream: "In 2004 I dreamed that they were coming here, that the 4 were waiting for me and I was ashamed because I had open late. Yes !!! Were Paul, John, George and Ringo. In my dream I cut their hair, one by one. Charle, enjoy and pass barbarian ".

That when he awoke from his room on to the hairdresser and get them, he thought he had been real, he was dizzy. "That if I did not want to do more traditional cuts and started papering the walls and placing all the memories that I have." So it completed creating the hairdresser Beatle. For Gerard, Paul now does not use the traditional cut Beatle. If I had it now Paul would do well here Beatle cut !!!! Barry Hayden, the maximum Beatle barber hairdressing Peny Lane saw online and when Paul went to Liverpool showed it and saw their work.

The theme of Gerardo Weiss hairdresser Beatle was distinguished as one of the 4 beatles hairdressers the world, along with Penny Lane the barber and other Illinois and Tokyo.

The salon was named cultural attractions in Mar del Plata. Gradually the hairdresser was going to be a place of global interest.

Among its treasures, Gerardo says: "I ​​have discontinued dvd, books with rare photos, with Lennon humming the comparsita, sticks Ringo, pictures, dolls, shirts, and what comes to mind I have no more place to. I am putting things in the ceiling "

Beatle Madness ". Would I believe you can send me many messages ?, Before ball and did not give me my grandmother and now receive messages from around the world." I'd put the salon elsewhere so that it is accessible to tourists who walk down the middle, but everything costs me related to The Beatles items "With Paul and Ringo." To Paul I met him when he came to Argentina and I went to see. Now they say they can come back, and I promised to come if it comes to dye. "Regarding Ringo" I went to see Charly García and sat next to me. Charly asked me: when you work? I am always making notes ". And he was right, after this interview was called Tokyo, Illinois and his friend, the barber of Penny Lane.
