Barbershop Discipline: Old Man Cuts!

Posted: Updated:

(WXIA) They're the photos seen 'round the world: A 10-year-old boy being disciplined by having to get an "old man" haircut.

A Snellville, Georgia barber came up with the idea.

It was this past September when the barber, the co-owner of A-1 Kutz in Snellville, Russell Fredrick, was practically losing his hair trying to figure out how to get his 12-year-old son to study, behave and to quit acting up in school "like an old foolish man."

As Fredrick was giving his son a haircut, he showed him a picture of an old bald man.

"I showed him and I told him, this is your next one if you keep it up. He didn't want it, so he got his act together," Frederick says.

Fredrick and his barbers started talking about it to other parents, and the mother of a 10-year-old told Russell Fredrick to do it.
