6-year-old Memphis barber shows off skills

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A young Memphis barber with big ambitions is making a name for himself on the internet. YouTube video of 6-year-old Quinelius Patrick cutting another young man's hair has spread across the Mid-South.

Patrick's father, who goes by the name Scooby, owns 'Next N Line' Barbershop on American Way. He has been teaching both his son and other children how to use clippers, give trims, and do design haircuts.

Scooby hosts several community service events in the Oakhaven neighborhood throughout the year. He said his goal is to give kids something positive to do and keep them away from trouble.

His son, who also goes by the name 'Scooby Cutz, Jr.', has been cutting hair since the age of 4 and wants to follow in his father's foot steps.

If you have a child who would like to learn how to cut hair, you are welcome to stop by 'Next N Line' Barbershop at 4945 American Way. You can also follow Scooby on Facebook and Instagram.
