8-year-old trained Barber offers free Haircuts to Kids in her Philadelphia Community



Neijae Graham-Henries, 8, graduated from the Junior Barber Academy in Philadelphia and has since been using her knowledge to give her peers free haircuts, according to CBS News Philadelphia.

Graham-Henries was the only girl in P. Michael Boone’s class over the summer and he claims she was also the youngest student.

Graham-Henries was only 7 years old at the time.

“I never expected to see a young lady in my class, but she was eager to learn, and I gave her the same guidance I’d give my older students,” he told Yahoo News

“I’m really pleased with her. She was an excellent student, and I look forward to where this will lead her.

Graham-Henries was first introduced to the trade when her brother initially signed up to participate in Boone’s program.

However, after deciding that barbering wasn’t for him, he opted not to complete the training and Graham-Henries signed up instead.

“The whole process is to finish it and do it really good and to, like, style it good,” the 8-year-old said in regards to how she approaches each haircut.

At a recent back-to-school gathering for neighborhood children, Graham-Henries and Boone provided free haircuts to roughly 400 schoolchildren while working together.

Boone says he has already asked Graham-Henries whether she may attend the community service initiative in November when he will provide free haircuts to the needy.
