This barbershop in Ypsilanti, Michigan doesn’t just cut hair. It also cuts prices for kids who read aloud to the barber while getting their hair cut!
Barber Ryan Griffin was inspired by a similar idea in Harlem, and so far the initiative is proving to be popular for both kids and parents. “The response from parents and teachers has been great, they love it!” Ryan Griffin and the owner Alex Fuller told Bored Panda. The idea isn’t just designed to encourage literacy however. Because the barbershop caters to diverse communities, the books available in The Fuller Cut library all feature positive images of African-Americans in order to inspire the young customers sitting in the barber’s chair.
