Melanie McQuillan, from Comox, is the first ever official Street Thug Barber.
Started by Ross Wilson, Cameron Sterling and Josh Malcolm in 2015, Street Thug Barbers spend time in parks, on sidewalks and down alleys giving free haircuts to the homeless.
“I think everyone should be political,” says Melanie. “And by political, I mean contributing to society in an active, positive way. This makes people feel great. I love it.”
Way to go, Mellie!
