The video of Ganesh (previous story) after showing him the mirror of his new cut, line up and beard trim. He had been wanting to have a nice, clean – and prominent -beard which would be more presentable. He didn’t know how to do it himself, so he said it just got out of hand and everyone was always telling him to shave.
Aquí puedes ver el antes y después de quienes tuvieron la oportunidad de pasar por el camino de El barbero de la calle.
This is Ganesh. He is 34 years old and has one daughter. He immigrated to Australia with his mother and brother almost 20 years ago – his father abandoned them in Fiji. A photo posted by Nasir Sobhani (@thestreetsbarber) on Jun 28, 2015 at 11:35pm PDT
That one indeed is a man who, today, dedicateth himself to the service of the entire human race. A photo posted by Nasir Sobhani (@thestreetsbarber) on Jun 14, 2015 at 12:30am PDT
This is Rachel. She is 28 years old and has one son. I was roaming the streets with my kit and Rachel walked by and said “hey, you’re the guy that gives free haircuts to us street folk!” I said hi, and asked if she was keen to get a free cut, which she was. This made me particularly happy because that day I had my friend Saba (@monzaviyan) offering to do makeup for my female clients if they wanted it.
This is Mark. He’s 28 years old. He hasn’t had contact with his family for nearly a decade. I’ve known of Mark for a while now and would show him love everytime I bumped into him, and he would reciprocate with so much joy.

This is Leroy, another former street client. He used to sell heroin when I first met him – actually, I had to stop giving the haircut momentarily because he had to make a sale. It was a surreal experience no doubt, just standing there patiently watching him help someone throw their life away and then go back to doing something good for him.
El proyecto de Nasir es sin duda bastante inspirador, ¡hay tantas cosas que podemos hacer en la calle y que pueden ser de beneficio para otros!
