Mason has never had a complete haircut. It’s a very difficult experience for him because he has autism. But when Mason came with his mom into a barber shop in West Glamorgan, UK, barber Jim Williams found a solution. Mason wanted to lie on the floor instead of sit in the chair. So Jim got down on the floor with him. ABC News reports:
Then, on Nov. 3, Williams said he was finally able to give Mason the “perfect haircut” by distracting Mason with an iPhone and letting the little boy lay down as he worked.
“He allowed me to cut around his neck and his ears,” Williams said. “Obviously his mother was glowing because something happened there. He allowed me to give him his first proper haircut and that was a great achievement.”
Mason’s mother, Denine Davies, said she is grateful for Williams’ patience and kindness.
“I think Jim is fantastic with Mason,” Davies told ABC News. “He always takes the time to chat to Mason, gives him a high five each time we visit and always puts ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ on for him in the salon. Williams has gone above and beyond the call of a regular hairdresser.”
