Farhad Savadkoohi who was a hairdresser for artists

Traditional artists are not providing a tangible service in exchange for money as a hairdresser is. Whereas poets can create poems entirely for their own enjoyment and pleasure, a hairdresser is creating their art specific to their customers specifications and must please them first and foremost. So rather than identifying themselves as artists, hairdressers should identify as artisans. In order to understand the importance of this distinction, the difference between an artisan and an artist must be looked at in greater detail.
