Jason Schneidman says he can relate to 2B.
“Fourteen-years ago, I had nothing. I was hooked on crack cocaine,” Jason shares. “When I turned 30, I realized I had to get sober. I went to rehab. I got clean. I started working every day. I was cutting hair. My career started getting really big, and I started becoming a celebrity hair stylist.”
Now, when Jason isn’t working with celebs like James Corden, Bruno Mars and Rob Lowe, he’s on the streets of Los Angeles giving back to the people he used to live among.WATCH: Mom Says Son Went From Successful Rock Star To Homeless And Abusing Heroin
“When I got sober, I was taught that I had to be of service and help others, so I went out on the street and I started cutting hair for some homeless people,” Jason says. “I believe a haircut can change someone’s life; I see these guy’s eyes light up. It’s incredible. Not only do they feel better about themselves, but the people around them perceive them differently … I hope and pray that I can change one life at a time, one haircut at a time.”
