Every Wednesday, Anthony Cymerys gives free haircuts to the homeless

May 21, 2013

82 year-old, Anthony Cymerys, gives free haircuts to the homeless and only asks for one thing in return: a hug.

Every Wednesday for the past 25 years, Cymerys sets up his mobile station in Hartford's Bushnell Park, Connecticut, with his set of clippers attached to his car battery. Haircuts are free for the homeless, long time customers, and people just down on their luck. All he wants in return is a hug.

Cymerys previously only cut hair for his family until he was inspired by a church session to help the less fortunate. His idea was to help the homeless look, well, less homeless. He wants to boost their spirits and make them feel good about their appearance.

Most importantly, he does it for love.

"It really is love. I love these guys," Cymerys said. He paused and turned to his client in the chair, "You know I love you, right?"
