We all know just how difficult it is trying to get our kids to sit in a hairdresser’s chair long enough to cut their hair.


However, for one family in the UK it was proven even more difficult by the fact that their son was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder a few months ago, and doesn't like people going near one of his ears.


Until James Williams from Jim the Trim came along that is!


James, from Port Talbot, had tried a number of different ways to cut Mason’s hair but he would “run away... if he wasn’t up for it.”


But after a month, he was finally successful in his attempt, and was able to give the boy his first proper haircut, taking to Facebook to share the wonderful news.


“Really want to thank Jamie Lewis Denine Davies to allow me to post this on my wall, the extremes you need to achieve when your cutting hair is amazing even having to go down to a child's level literally haha [sic],” he wrote.

Explaining how he did it, James wrote: “We both layed on the floor in silence & he allowed me to cut away & give him his first proper haircut, again achieving something in a job I love making both parents happy by giving extra attention to mason by building a friendship at trust with mason & myself [sic]”.


Mason, who was clearly very happy with his trim, gave the barber a hug, and, not surprisingly, the post has gone viral for all the right reason.
