SNELLVILLE, Ga. — Have a kid who is acting out and out of control? Three days a week, a Georgia barbershop offers a free haircut called the “Benjamin Button Special” that’ll make your misbehaving child resemble a senior citizen.

A picture of the cut was posted to Instagram by Russell Fredrick, who owns A-1 Kutz in Snellville and goes by the name Master Barber Rusty Fred on the social site.

The picture was accompanied with the following text:

“So you wana act grown…well now you can look grown too??. The grown-up kids special by: @rusty_fred GOT TO REACH EM SOMEHOW…. #ittakesavillage #thiscantbelife #hairloss #rusty_fred #rustyfred #toughlove #lessons #learningexperience #tryme #grownkids #kidsbarber #barberlove #barbergame #a1 #a1kutz #a1kidzz #a1__kutz #hair #haircut #naturalhair #barbershopconnect #lifelessons #yougonelearntoday”

In an interview with the Washington Post, Fredrick — who has three children — said he decided to promote the cut after he gave his 12-year-old son a similar old-man haircut and the boy’s grades “dramatically skyrocketed.”
