Astronaut Matthias Maurer shared the video on Twitter which shows him getting his hair cut by his teammate Raja Chari on the International Space Station. In the video, Maurer can be seen kneeling and holding onto the spaceship as Chari uses a clipper to cut his hair.
In a witty tweet, Maurer called Chari a barber and a man of many talents. He also said astronauts don’t want hair in their eyes. “Step into the space salon where the barber @astro_raja is a man of many talents Because none of us want to have hair in our eyes, or – worse yet – @Space_Station systems, our hair clippers come with a vacuum. Five stars for the service of this space stylist, âwrote Maurer.
Previously, “floating pizza” on the ISS and astronaut training videos had taken the internet by storm.

It’s amazing how the things that are so easy on Earth that it will be a little hard in Space and then seeing them in the ISS makes me appreciate all the little things I have on Earth.
