“Hairdressers must stop gossiping” – Pope Francis

The leader of the Catholic Church Pope Francis yesterday in an audience with hairdressers, hairstylists, and beauticians asked that they should avoid gossiping.

It’s no news that hairdressers are the ones that gossip the most especially when they have customers in the saloon.

“Practice your profession in a Christian style, treating customers with kindness and courtesy, offering them a good word and encouragement,” he said.

“And avoid succumbing to the temptation of chatter which is easily associated with your field of work,” he added.

During the meeting at the Vatican, he advised the group of 230 pilgrims to follow their patron saint Martino de Porres (1579-1639), canonized in 1966 by his predecessor Paul VI.

The barber-surgeon was canonized for his supposed miracles of levitation, being in two places at once, instant cures and communicating with animals. Porres is also the patron saint of mixed-race people.

Much like Porres, whose job covered haircuts, amputations, and bloodletting, “each of you, in your professional work, can always act with righteousness, thus making a positive contribution to the common good of society,” Francis said.

In 2015, the pontiff opened a hairdressing salon in the Vatican for the homeless people of Rome. It is open on Mondays, when other barbers are closed, and is staffed by volunteers.
