Brennon Jones is a former barber. He is known for giving people in Philadelphia free haircuts if they are homeless. In an inspiring twist to the story, a stranger who heard about his acts of kindness decided to give him his own barbershop. Jones would go around and when he would see homeless people he would take out his clippers and his tray and his other tools and he would give the homeless people a haircut. His haircuts have gone viral on Facebook and other social media sites. He has even streamed them live. Besides giving homeless people some money and some food, he has always been giving them haircuts. By giving them a haircut, they feel better and he gives them a new lease on life.
Sean Johnson is a barber in Philadelphia. He has a barbershop, but he also has been holding onto an empty barber shop that he has been trying to get off the ground. When he heard about Jones’ work he knew he had a match. He first tried to offer Jones work, but Jones was not interested. He then offered Jones the entire barbershop where he can continue to do his work for the homeless. Jones has never had his own barbershop before and he was a little confused, besides being excited. Johnson just handed him the keys and said that this was his way of returning the kindness that Jones has been doing for quite a while. Jones only serves customers Tuesday through Saturday. On Monday, he offers free haircuts to the homeless, as well as food. Johnson is not even concerned about the new competition. He considers himself a mentor to Jones.
