Free Haircuts for Life for Straight-A Student

- A straight-A report card has earned 9-year old Kamarian Fox free haircuts for the rest of his life.

Fox was challenged by his barber Mike Shelton at Next Level Barber Shop in Gastonia to get straight-A's during his back-to-school haircut this summer. Fox said he had never before made straight-A's and took on the challenge.

In November, he returned to the barber shop with his straight-A report card in hand and a haircut in mind. Shelton gladly cut his hair and hopes this can be a lesson not just for kids, but adults.

"Find a young person or a teenager in your own community and give them an incentive to do good in school," Shelton said.

As for the straight-A student -- the haircuts are great, but he's most proud of the grades.

"You shouldn't have to be rewarded to get good grades," Fox said.
