TIME for Kids

Making history in the world of haircutting, 8-year-old Neijae Graham-Henries is the world’s youngest female barber. The third-grader told her mom she wanted to start cutting hair after learning that her older brother took on a barber class in North Philadelphia. 

World Record Academy title of “World’s Youngest Barber’

Now, the 9-year-old spends her time going to school and giving free haircuts to those in need and at the same time mastering her skills from Philadelphia barbers. Young Graham-Henries is confident about her career in a male-dominated profession and her resolve to pursue her passion has won her the World Record Academy title of “World’s Youngest Barber’.

Neijae’s mother, Jaime Graham of West Philadelphia, estimates that her daughter has coiffed about 28 heads of hair since taking up the craft. While Neijae has styled a few women, most of her clients have been men, whose hair she enjoys cutting more.
Since the minimum age for securing a barber’s license in Pennsylvania is 16, for now Neijae must provide her haircuts free under the watchful eye of a licensed barber.
