#BeAwesomeToSomebody (post from Frank Somerville KTVU)


I love these pictures and I love this story.
The guy in the baseball cap is Mark Bustos.
He cuts hair at an upscale salon in New York.
Prices start at around $125.

But on Sundays, he walks around the New York and gives free haircuts to the homeless.

He has a special way that he approaches them:

“I’ll sit on the sidewalk on the ground with them, sit eye-to-eye and speak with them like a human being, just tell them I want to do something nice for them.”

He then cuts their hair, right there on the street.

The first guy is Joe.
Here’s how Mark described him:

“When I first approached Joe, 40, he was banging the back of his head against the wall.
He told me he felt like a ‘dead corpse.’”

Now look at him in the second picture.
He looks like a model.
He’s what Mark said about him afterword:

“After the haircut and some kind words and love, I felt like I gave him a little bit of hope.
He told me he no longer felt like a dead corpse.”

The second set of pictures shows a guy named Zack.
Here’s what Mark said about him:

“Found Zack, 23, in Union Square with his hair down past his shoulders, a cardboard sign and a cup of change.
He told me it has been a few years since his last haircut.
(His hair) was matted and tangled and took quite some time to comb through.”

As they were talking Mark says Zack also told him about the only girl he ever fell in love with.
(You’ll see why that is important in a second)

After getting the haircut Zack was like a different person
Here’s what he said to Mark:

“I feel so great, not just physically, but emotionally…
Can you take a photo of me with your phone so I can send it to that girl I was telling you about?”

One of my favorite quotes is this:

“How you make others feel about themselves, says a lot about you.”

I think Mark Bustos is a perfect example of that.

In fact, I think his hashtag on Instagram says it all:
