UK barber finds perfect way to cut boy with autism's hairThe smallest decisions we make can sometimes have the biggest impact. When Jamie Lewis and Denine Davies brought their son Mason to a barbershop, they had no idea what was in store. Barber James Williams found the perfect way to give this little boy with autism a haircut, which had him thinking outside the box -- or barber chair.

Now this is some serious dedication that takes customer services to new levels, or in this case, new "lows."

Mason was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder a few months back, which has made James Williams try to find different ways to cut his hair. After much trial and error, the U.K. barber discovered that Mason enjoyed lying on the floor, which enabled him to complete his masterpiece.

I. Love. This.

It's people like this who really help make the world go round. James obviously takes great pride in his work -- and also making his clients feel as comfortable as possible. I can only imagine how Mason's parents felt to have someone so dedicated to not only cutting their child's hair (let's face it, that in itself can be a hurdle for any parent), but also to trying so hard to make their little boy feel comfortable.

This was such a wonderful act of kindness that went above and beyond the call of duty -- or service.
