Teenage barber uses a school suspension to grow his business

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Sixteen-year-old Cameron Tucker has a gift for cutting hair. This summer, his uncle taught him the basics, and before long, Cameron had a business working on his classmates. Then one day he got suspended for giving a haircut in a school bathroom. That news went viral, and Cameron used his suspension to grow his business. Some of his clients now include Big Sean, Jalen Rose and Reggie Bush. It's MORNING EDITION.
