For decades, at around 9 am each day, Li Hong-sen (李紅森) has been putting on his motorcycle helmet – which has “Barber – Home Visit Service” emblazoned across the front - and riding from Yangmei to the towns of Zhongli, Taoyuan, and Pingzhen etc., where he meets up with clients who have made an appointment with him. On top of this, Li Hong-sen also regularly visits Tao-Yuan General Hospital, where he provides his grooming services to patients. In spite of fierce competition from countless new barber shops and a continual decline in Li Hong-sen’s clients, his spirit of dedication has remained unwavering and he regularly travels 20 to 30km to cut the hair of just one client. 

Though Li Hong-sen began apprenticing with a professional barber at the tender age of just fifteen, he went to work in a factory some years later and relegated barbering to a sideline occupation. Convenient, many neighbors ask for his help and countless people who have used Li Hong-sen’s barbering services become acquainted with his style and turn into long-term clients. It is the pleasure Li Hong-sen takes from developing new skills that provide him with a deep sense of accomplishment and also motivated him to initiate his mobile barber service. 

At fifty-seven years old, Li Hong-sen decided to give up his factory work in order to fully concentrate on his barbering profession. To this end, he modified an old motorcycle and loaded up all the tools of his trade including scissors, cushions, and towels, transforming himself into a real life “mobile barber”. Li Hong-sen has been riding throughout Taoyuan and cutting hair each day now for over thirty years.

Li Zhao-nan (李照男), a regular client of Li Hong-sen for the past three decades, said that Li Hong-sen’s optimistic attitude to work and life has helped keep him fit as a fiddle and clear headed, so why would he want to retire? At Yang Mei’s Ten-Chen hospital, Li Hong-sen has a number of patients that rely on his barbering service, many of who have established a solid friendship with him.

行動理髮師 不辭千里剪頭毛

每天一早九點多,李紅森便戴上寫有「理髮,到家服務」的安全帽,騎著機車,從楊梅到中壢、桃園、平鎮等市區為電話預約的客人理髮,也常至桃園各大醫院服務行動不便而無法自己洗頭、修臉的病友,數十年如一日。即便面對新興理髮店競爭,他的客戶不斷縮減,依舊抱著奉獻的精神,經常騎超過二、三十公里只為替一位客人剪髮。

李紅森十五歲開始跟隨師傅學習美髮,後來到工廠上班、理髮轉為副業。有時街坊鄰居為了方便,仍經常請他幫忙,許多以前被服務過的客人也都習慣於他的手藝,他也樂於繼續發揮專長,也因此有了更深的成就感,而啟發了他的行動理髮計畫。

經過一番思量後,他改裝了一台舊型打檔車,將所有工具、靠墊、毛巾裝載上車。五十七歲那年,為了能專心理髮,他索性辭掉工廠工作,成為真正的「外送理髮師」,日復一日的來往於桃園各地,而這一騎就是三十年。

給他剪超過三十年的老主顧李照男表示,李紅森常樂觀的說持續工作讓自己眼手都能保持靈活,何樂而不為?楊梅、天晟醫院都各有數位病患長期接受他的服務,並與他建立了厚實的情誼。
