Fil-Am hairstylist gives free haircuts to homeless in New York

For your dose of warm and fuzzies.

A Filipino-American hairstylist is giving back to the community by doing what he does best. The Huffington Post first reported the story on Mark Bustos’ unique Sunday routine: walking around the streets of New York and offering free haircuts to the homeless.


The good deed began in 2012 during a visit to the Philippines. He said he gave poor children a haircut while there and decided to spread the good act back in the U.S. Other than New York, Bustos also conducts his services in other areas, incluing Jamaica and California.


He shares photos of his clients on his Instagram account using the hashtag #BeAwesomeToSomebody.
