Brennon Jones launched his commendable initiative about 10 months ago in Philadelphia, US. He set up his equipment on street corners and named his venture "Haircuts 4 The Homeless."

In an interview, he said:

I wanted to provide something different than some change or a couple dollars. I am blessed with a talent, so why not share it? We've got to give back to the society in one way or another.

Jones' initiative soon grabbed public attention and warmed the hearts of many around the world. One of them was Sean Johnson, who decided to gift Jones a newly renovated barbershop.

Describing the generous gesture, Jones said:

He asked me: ‘Why would you want to be an employee if you have the potential to be an owner?’ I couldn’t answer that question. He tossed me the key and said, ‘If you like it, it’s yours.'

Jones has named the barbershop "Phenomenon Perfection Hair Studio" and has opened it to the general public.

Homeless people will still get free haircuts on what he termed "Makeover Mondays," during which they'll also get free lunch and toiletries.
