A Cut for a Cause... High End NY Stylist Mark Bustos Gives Back with Hair Cuts for the Homeless!

Mark Bustos is a hairstylist that works in the high end salon "Three Squares Studio" in Chelsea, NY. The price for his services range from $150-$800 depending on which services/treatments the client receives.

New York, New York, they say if you can make it here you can make it anywhere. But for those down on their luck, it can be a ruthless city. So when a local does something purely out of the kindness of their hearts, it raises awareness.

Mark Bustos is using his role in the beauty industry to give back, whenever he can he goes out into the streets of New York to give free hair cuts to homeless men and women. He approaches each individual with the same way, telling them "I'd like to do something nice for you today."






Bustos got the idea after visiting family members in the Phillipines in 2012. During his visit he hosted an event where he gave free haircuts to under privileged children. "It made such a strong positive impact on me that I decided to bring it back home to NYC." says Bustos

Since then Bustos estimates to have cut over 50 homeless men and women's hair-and not just in New York, but also Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Los Angeles.  Bustos says he tries to cut people hair in visible places, to try to inspire people to use their own professions to give back to those who are less fortunate.

Bustos hopes that the haircuts give his homeless clients the inspiration to turn their lives around.
