Entrepreneurs offer free hair styles to the destitute


At a certain point in Collin Spears’ life, only a couple of years back, he was battling.

For around a half year, Spears says he was destitute and living in a van with his life partner. In the mornings, they would drive to a neighborhood truck stop, wash up and continue ahead with their day, which for Spears implied trimming hair and making a couple of bucks to a great extent.


“I was progressing in the direction of getting a condo,” he said.

Inwardly, Spears said he attempted to remain positive in spite of his critical conditions.

“You remind yourself who you’re not going to be, and you remind yourself who you will be,” he said.

Nowadays, Spears, 23, brings home the bacon as co-proprietor of the F&S; Barber Shop in downtown Staunton and thinks about his three-year-old child.
