Barber says his work is "all about love."

Brockton, Massachusetts, has as new hero -- Corey Bester, owner of the Bester Styles barber shop. What made him famous? Local resident Ryan Jones was driving past Bester Styles recently when he saw the barber giving a customer a haircut -- outside the shop on the sidewalk -- because the man's electric wheelchair would not fit through the door. Jones snapped this photo and sent it to the Brockton Facebook page.

Jones observed, "This barber could have easily said sorry, bud, I can't get you in because you're in a wheelchair, but instead he accommodated that man and did what he could to make sure he had a fresh cut." Bester just opened the shop and could not yet afford a wheelchair ramp. Since the picture went viral, he's received "a ton" of support from the community. The barber explained, "It was totally unexpected. I had to help him out. It's all about love."
