Kids that go to Royal Touch Barbershop in Palm Beach County, Florida, leave with more than a fresh cut. Boys are required to read books out loud while getting their hair cut, according to Reggie Ross, the owner. "I think it helps them with their literacy, the speed of reading and comprehension, but I would love to see more graduation and education to reduce the violence and increase the economics of the community," Ross told WPTV.
