One hair stylist is bringing style to the streets. Mark Bustos, who works in an upscale New York City salon, spends his Sundays giving people in need a fresh new look by providing haircuts to up to six people, according to the Huffington Post.
Bustos, 30, first started cutting hair for the less fortunate in the Philippines where he traveled to visit family members back in 2012. Not only was the feeling rewarding, Bustos said he wanted to "bring the positive energy back to New York City." He has since cut hair for the homeless in Jamaica, Cost Rica and Los Angeles.
Every Sunday, he roams around New York's "well-traveled street corners and sidewalks" to find his clientele. Bustos' approach is the same every time—"I want to do something nice for you today." And then he goes about it right there in the open for the rest of the world to see.
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, do more and become more, you are a leader," Bustos wrote as one of his captions to an Instagram photograph.
Bustos encourages people to do something kind for somebody and invites people to follow him on his journey through his Instagram feed. It is there he posts photographs of his work with the hashtag #BeAwesomeToSomebody.
His ultimate goal is for people to "find inspiration is the good deed", Bustos told Huffington Post, and "be kind to the less fortunate."
