A young barber from Aberdare is using his skills to help others by offering free haircuts to the homeless in Cardiff.

Jamie Richards, who is just 18, also gives his non-paying customers the chance to get some food and drink while they wait for a trim.

Watch the report below:

His kind gestures are getting a lot of attention and admiration.

It's not going to be the best haircut of their life, but it's going to make them feel a bit better for a day! I had a guy last week and he cried into the mirror as he was looking at himself, and he was running around saying how amazing he looked.

Jamie says he wants more of us to follow his style - to do what we can to help others - because seemingly small acts of kindness can have a huge impact.
