Barber gives a student free haircuts for life for getting straight A’s on his report card. When school first started this year a 4th grader called Kamarian received a surprising challenge from his barber. One can only assume that Kamarian’s grades back then weren’t perfect since the barber wanted to offer him the deal in the first place, but recently the fourth grader came back to the barber shop with an impressive report card: he had gotten straight A’s throughout the semester.
What this meant for Kamarian? He would get his hair cut for free. Kamarian and his barber first made a bet back when school started this year, that should the boy manage to become a straight A student his barber will no longer charge him for his haircuts. According to Mike Shelton, the barber working for Next Level Barbershop in Gastonia, North Carolina, the deal was done in august. The barber had completely forgotten about the bet but Kamarian, as it turns out, did not.
So the student showed up for his haircut again now, flashing a report card that had nothing but A grades on it. Surely enough, the boy received his free haircut and according to his barber Mike Shelton, as long as the kid’s grades are up, he’ll keep getting them for free for as long as he wants to. But if Kamarian’s grades drop, Mike will start charging for the haircuts again.
According to Kamarian, the fact that Mike wanted to make the deal with him was inspiring. Kamarian explained that the barber’s belief in him was what motivated him to push harder and study in order to get the good grades. It gave him the confidence that he needed in order to achieve a better academic performance.
But Mike explains that Kamarian had always struck him as an intelligent kid and that his initiative to offer free haircuts was done so that the boy would find a little bit more support and confidence in his abilities and muster the courage he needed to become better at some school subjects.
Mike has now taken to social media to tell everyone he knows about Kamarian’s exciting achievements. He’s posted pictures of the boy proudly holding his report card and showing the good grades as well as pictures of the new hairstyle he got at the barber shop for no charge. Mike is now continuing to push the student with the challenge: if Kamarian’s grades don’t go down, he’ll be getting free haircuts from Mike for the rest of his life, based on his great report cards.
