But Neijae Graham-Henries is already bossed up. Incredibly, before the seven-year-old started second grade she learnt how to cut hair.
Her interest in barbering came from her older brother. She took notice when he started training at the Junior Barber Academy in North Philadelphia. Neijae’s brother soon lost interest, but Neijae’s peaked.
“When we came back home, she saw some of the information on social media and she said, ‘Mom, he doesn’t want to do it, I’ll give it a go,’” said Jamie Graham, Neijae’s mother.
She Wants To Cut Donald Trump’s Hair
Michael Boone, owner of the Junior Barber Academy, says Neijae is his youngest ever trainee.
“Neijae was 7 years old when she came through our program,” Boone says proudly.
“She wasn’t intimidated because she was the youngest student and she was not intimidated because she was the only female,” Neijae’s mom added.
Now the little girl uses her natural flair for hairdressing to give free haircuts to neighborhood kids. “The whole process is to finish it and do it really good and to, like, style it good,” Neijae says.
Now Neijae has got her hands on most of the kids in her area, there’s one thing person she wants to get on her barber’s chair. “Donald Trump, he has too much long hair, so I would cut it,” said Neijae.
