PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia barber is taking his “Haircuts 4 Homeless” operation off the streets after an older barber surprised him with his own shop.

Philly.com reports that Brennon Jones celebrated the opening his new barbershop, Phenomenon Perfection, this weekend. He plans to spend every Monday providing haircuts, lunch and health screenings to homeless clients.

Jones’ work had previously caught the attention of fellow barber Sean Johnson, who had offered him a job. But Jones said he was happier doing charity work.

Then, as the winter cold approached, threatening Jones’ outdoor operation, Johnson offered to show him an unused but fully furnished barbershop that he owned.

Once inside, he tossed Jones the keys and said, “It’s yours.”

Johnson says he just wanted to be part of a good thing.
