Meet the Bristol teen hairstylist who’s becoming a TikTok phenomenon

A teenage barber from Bristol is fast becoming a TikTok and Instagram phenomenon, performing outside of schools and offering free haircuts.

Shaq’ille Fearon is just 16 and still in school, but he’s about to rack up half a million likes on TikTok for his videos showing what happens when he sets up his barber chair outside the school gates and take out the scissors.

Huge crowds of young people gather, so much so that the police were called on one occasion, because people feared something bad was going on, and at another school, a teacher even offered to sit on the chair and get a good cut.
