Rolling Barber proves the power of a haircut for the homeless

Haircuts go beyond the homeless population...

Each Sunday, the Rolling Barber plans to move to a different downtown location and offer free haircuts to a new group of people in need, from the homeless to women fleeing domestic abuse to newly released convicts living in halfway houses. 

"A lot of people will say, it's only for the homeless. No, it's not. It's really for anyone," Donovan says.

"We have people that actually have jobs but work at minimum wage. And for them, paying $30, $40 for a haircut is not really within their means. They will choose to put the money on food or put the money on their lodgings."
