Last week world famous barber Nasir Sobhani, a.k.a. Streets Barber, came to St. Petersburg to support the local homeless community “Nochlezka”.
He spent one day giving homeless people in St. Petersburg new hairstyles.
The idea was to attract attention to the problems of homeless people.
Members of the local homeless community think that with new haircuts homeless people become more confident and get more respect and attention they deserve.
Nasir Sobhani doesn’t just change people’s looks; he gives his clients a new outlook on life.
Mr. Sobhani, 26, was born and raised in Japan, went to college in Canada, volunteered in Vanuatu and now lives and works in Melbourne.
He is known for spending one day a week giving free haircuts to homeless people all over the world. His first free-haircut client was a drug addict who used to wash windows outside the barber shop where Nasir Sobhani worked.
