As kindly invited visitors we found the horrifying tales of so many recent killings, the escalating cross-the-field shootings, and the grim warnings of ever-present violence near-paralysing, but Walied and his family just don’t have the luxury of outsider shock and incredulity. Walied gets on with what he loves and what brought INFRINGE to him is that he loves the transformative power of barbering. Whether it is cutting patterns, working with his clippers or scissors, he enjoys all that hairdressing offers. His skills are clear and he is super happy cutting hair of every and any texture. The residents of Hanover Park have such an incredible array of hair types and he, unlike many hairdressers, is very skilled at cutting every hair type and enjoys making everyone look and feel great! But hairdressings transformative power doesn’t stop at the client’s image, it is also one of the few vocations that could have saved him from gang life. With minimal tools and zero stock and with the safety precaution of his bedroom in the same space, he is able to keep a family supporting business running in an area that has so very few job opportunities and soul-destroying levels of unemployment.
