Barber Gives Child ‘Old Man Haircut’ As Punishment For Misbehaving

A suburban Atlanta barber is currently offering parents of misbehaving kids a “Benjamin Button Special,” a haircut designed to make the stuborn kids look like old men. UPI has more:

Russell Fredrick, co-owner of the A-1 Kutz barber shop in Snellville, said the first recipient of the “Benjamin Button Special,” a shaved head with the sides and back left in place in the style of a balding elderly man, was his own 12-year-old son.

Fredrick told The Washington Post his son’s failing grades “dramatically skyrocketed” after receiving the haircut last fall, so he decided to start offering the haircut as a free-of-charge option for parents seeking unconventional disciplinary measures for unruly kids.

The first customer to accept the offer, the mother of a 10-year-old who had been misbehaving in school, said the haircut succeeded in correcting his behavior and the boy returned to the store four days later to fix the style.
