A haircut might not seem like it could help a homeless person out. But let us look at it from a different angle, if our hair is not taken care of it creates a look that can keep us from working and other problems too. I can recall one time when my pack was homeless. I went into a store to buy items that we needed to survived on the streets. The greeter there had some very lose lips. He went on to describe a shaggy looking guy that was in there before me. Calling him a bum because of his hair being messed up. He was talking about my dad. I let him continued to hanged himself some more before mentioning that he was talking about my dad even though i wanted to chewed him out. I bit my tongue till i could not take anymore. When i told him that was my dad, he went silent on me. Not to mention i recorded the conversation too. I then went to speak to the owner of the store, I played the recording to the owner too. Explaining that my dad and myself have come here many times to shop and buy items. I went on to tell him i did not want the guy fired. I told him educating the guy would be a better option. I spoke to the owner for about a half hour. And we parted our way. He then gave me a gift card for 500 bucks and told me that he would educate the greeter and the rest of his workers too on being better people. I not going to mention the store name or the guy name either because the problem was handled very well. I used this story as a reference to how people can profiled other people they come into contact with other people. This is how a haircut can helped a homeless person too.
A simple thing like a haircut can make a person feel great about themselves. For one thing they have someone they can talk to for a little while. This blog post is about free haircuts for the homeless and the barber business is in Newport Ky too. I drive past his business everyday too. This is the first time i have heard anything about him too, but he made the news on channel 9. If he has a website i will post it in the blog also. The news article will be added to this blog also so you can checked it out.
