After several of his shaggy-haired students accepted his offer for a free haircut, other teachers took notice of his makeshift barbershop and sent their own students in for haircuts.Dunham says that he learned to cut hair as a child growing up in Brooklyn because his father owned a chain of barbershops. He has also managed to hone his skills over the years by watching YouTube videos.WATCH: Video of Teacher Goes Viral After He’s Admired For Putting Young Student’s Hair in a PonytailDespite how Dunham is now garnering plenty of social media praise for his labor of love, he says that he is simply happy to take care of his students.“When I go to the barbershop, when I get a haircut, you feel good, you look good, you’ve got that confidence starting to come out of you,” he added. “I want every one of my students to be confident today. This is their special day.”(WATCH the interview below)Cut Out Negativity By Sharing This Sweet Story Of Kindness With Your Friends On Social Media…AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more
