EnSpired: Barber Goes Beyond the Chair to Lay Down on Floor for 6yr Old with Autism…

If you have children or son’s that is and have experienced a trip to the local barbershop, you’ll know that it’s not a fun experience for the parent, child or the barber, given your child’s hair needs and their reaction to the clippers or scissors near their head; I know my experience with taking my son to the barbershop has not been good, the barbers always seem to be in some sort of hurry and the atmosphere sometimes can feel a little – let’s just say, not kid friendly but I bear through it as all parents dreadfully do.

While I hate barbershop trips, Franz Jacob has restored my hope that their are not only good barbershops but good, kind, friendly and PATIENT barbers as well. Known as the “good-natured” barber, Jacobs makes getting a haircut a breeze, even if the child wants to sit on the floor – just as Wyatt does, a 6yr old client of Jacobs whom has autism. According to Fauve Lafrenier, Wyatt’s mom, the 6yr old is both hypo-sensitive and hypersensitive so a day at the barber shop can be not only uncomfortable but very unbearable having his hair constantly touched, but that’s not a problem for Canadian Franz Jacobs who patiently gets the job done, even if it’s on the floor.

According to the Good News Network, Jacob’s Salon Authentischen Barbier is the only shop in Quebec where Wyatt’s mom can take him in which not only gives him a warm welcome but aids to her sons sensitive care needs. A place where Wyatt knows his barber will go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure he gets the best hair cut.

See the amazing video below courtesy of Inside Edition of how Jacob uses his tools and kind nature to cut Wyatt’s hair…
