2 young Brazilian men are giving free haircuts to the poor

Vinicius Rodrigues -- a 22-year-old barber in Brazil -- is making a change in his community in a huge way.

The barbershop owner opens his shop, Bom de Corte, early -- at 8:30 a.m -- so he can give haircuts to those who can't afford them.

The barbershop is filled with colorful beanbag chairs that clients patiently sit on while they wait for Rodrigues to cut their hair.

While Rodrigues only recently began giving free hair cuts at his barbershop, at least once a month, he makes special trips with his 19-year-old friend, Esdras Gomes. Vinicius and Esdras visit nursing homes, childcare centers and homeless shelters, offering free haircuts.

Vinicius' inspiration came from his father who initially encouraged him to take a barber course. It was at the barber course that he met his friend Esdras, and the two have been inseparable (and making a change) ever since.

To start, Vinicius invested $14 USD in a chair and his mother gifted him with a mirror.

Aside from the free haircuts he gives to the less fortunate, a normal haircut as his shop usually costs around $3 USD.
