Getting the kids back to school can pretty expensive real quick with uniforms, supplies, fees, and haircuts.

One New Orleans barber is doing his part to help out the costs involved with the latter.

Brandus Mercandel, also known as Fatt Da Barber from House of Fades Barber Shop is giving back by offering free haircuts for kids.

On top of being a good samaritan, he's also going for a Guinness World Record on most free back-to-school cuts.

Now, we're not exactly sure what the total number is for him to get the record, but he did do close to 200 haircuts last weekend.

This is the fourth year in a row that Mercandel has done these free haircuts.

In the past, he's also given free shoes to kids for back-to-school.
