Now I’m not a religious guy, however I do like the idea of salons world wide hanging this little picture up on their walls.
St. Martin de Porres became the patron saint of hairdressers because hairdressing was one of the duties he performed for his brothers in the friary.
Check him out, he looks like Moss Deff or the guy who played Jesus in Madonna’s Like A Pray music video.
St. Martin de Porres was born at Lima, Peru, in 1579. His father was a Spanish gentleman and his mother a coloured freed-woman from Panama. At fifteen, he became a lay brother at the Dominican Friary at Lima and spent his whole life there-as a barber, farm laborer, almoner, and infirmarian among other things.
I wonder what I have to do to get canonized as a modern day saint? And wouldn't it look good on my resume`.
