World's oldest barber still snips away

Anthony Mancinelli, who first began working as a barber in 1924, has, at the age of 101, no plans to retire just yet.


    Living to 100 is a milestone in itself, but one man in the US state of New York is still working, at the age of 101.
     
    Anthony Mancinelli has been cutting hair for 87 years and, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, he is the world’s oldest practicing barber.

    As part of Al Jazeera's Still Going Strong series, Kristen Saloomey went to find out what has kept Mancinelli snipping away for all these years.
