Buzzed by their buzzes

Kevin Shelby, 10, left, and Anfernee Funches, 9, feel one another’s new haircuts Tuesday afternoon at 2000 & Beyond Salon at Pemberton Square mall. The boys were in a group of 15 getting haircuts provided by a collaboration between the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. and Planet 4 Kidz daycare. The organization wanted to give the boys a fresh start for the school year and hope to repeat the program in the spring. “It’s a self-esteem booster,” said Eric Lawson, Omega Psi Phi member and owner of Planet 4 Kidz. Kevin is the son of Sueanna Cooks and John Shelby, and Anfernee is the son of Alison Dulaney and Marcus Howard. (Katie Carter * The Vicksburg Post)
