A hairdresser in Florida has invented a scary-looking fingertip razor blade attachment he believes will revolutionize the industry.

Valentino LoSauro, of Fort Myers, Fla., has spent close to $244,000 and many years developing the menacing-looking "Clawz," which he says shaves the time it takes to cut hair.

With small razors attached to his fingers, the stylist has drawn comparisons to Tim Burton's famous Edward Scissorhands character, played by Johnny Depp in the 1990 film.

LoSauro, a hairdresser for 35 years, claims his musical dexterity helped inspired the creation.

"I am a pianist as well as a hairdresser and wanted to combine that light-fingered touch with my styling," he said.

The cutters are made from stainless steel and responsive elastic and are fitted with replaceable razor blades that last for up to 15 cuts.
