(November 9, 2015) – Mason was badly in need of a haircut. He was recently diagnosed with autism and he wouldn’t let anyone touch certain parts of his head.
Mason’s parents brought their son to barber James Williams as a last-ditch effort.
But when Williams tried to come near Mason’s hair with a pair of scissors, Mason would run away.
However, Williams refused to give up. He saw Mason over a period of several months, and as of last week, he finally figured out a way to cut Mason’s hair.
Williams wrote in a Facebook post: “But today I finally achieved it where we both layed on the floor in silence & he allowed me to cut away & give him his first proper haircut, again achieving something in a job I love making both parents happy by giving extra attention to mason by building a friendship at trust with mason & myself.”
Williams said after the haircut Mason gave him a hug.
Williams posted photos of the haircut on November 3, and it has since gone viral.
