Why the Internet Loves This Photo of a Barber Giving Haircut to Little Boy

Mason Davies received the perfect haircut on Nov. 3.

"I'm astonished at the impact it has made for families across the globe," Jim Williams of South Wales told ABC News. "It's amazing how it's touched so many people, but I'm glad and I hope it brings awareness for other barbers. I hope they'll take a different approach to giving haircuts for people with ASD."

Williams said for the past few months, Mason Davies' family had been taking him to his barber shop, Jim the Trim in West Glamorgan, U.K., for a haircut.

"Sometimes he was up for it [a haircut], sometimes he wasn’t," Williams said. "Once he got irritated I'd say 'That’s enough for today. We'll try again next time.' I didn't want him to feel any pressure."

"He allowed me to cut around his neck and his ears," Williams said. "Obviously his mother was glowing because something happened there. He allowed me to give him his first proper haircut and that was a great achievement."

Mason's mother, Denine Davies, said she is grateful for Williams' patience and kindness.
