A former drug addict who turned his life around is now doing the same for the homeless population of Melbourne.

Nasir Sobhani is a barber with an unusual clientele. When he’s not working at a trendy salon in Melbourne’s north, he’s giving haircuts and hope to the homeless.
He’s known as the “Streets Barber”.
“Sometimes, when you don’t care for yourself anymore, you give up hope and so when you give up hope you lose sight of what’s beautiful and that beautiful thing is yourself,” he said. “So if you can be physically beautiful then that can spark a change on the inner beauty.”
It’s a labour of love for this reformed drug addict. After hitting rock bottom, he found a new addiction.
“I get high, it’s simple as that.” he said. “I get happy, I get joy seeing someone else happy. So I think I benefit more than they benefit to be honest, so it’s almost selfish.”
“When you give up hope you lose sight of what’s beautiful and that beautiful thing is yourself.”
Currently more than 100,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness.
