Lee gets a haircut from barber Jamie

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.
