Nasir Sobhani, the worlds greatest Barber
[su_quote]I love people, and I love cutting hair. This is my passion. This is what makes me happy. The joy I see in a person after getting groomed brings me joy. I used to be a drug addict and I didn’t care about anybody else. Now that I’m sober, serving others is the best high I’ve ever felt. Sharing the voice of the unheard is my new drug. I love being The Streets Barber.[/su_quote]

Nasir Sobhani aka The Streets Barber is no ordinary barber.  A recovered heroin addict Nasir moved from Canada to Sydney 3 years ago following a successful stint in rehab and began working as an apprentice barber. Inspired by a fellow recovering addict, who celebrated his one month sobriety with a haircut, Nasir saw the newfound confidence something as simple as a haircut can provide.

Now, Nasir’s one day off a week is spent on the streets of Sydney armed with his barber kit and his skateboard. Nasir can be seen around town providing the homeless with a free haircut and a shave, but, more importantly as Nasir says, human interaction and companionship.
