HOUSTON — Alijah Hernandez is too young to obtain her professional barber's license, but that's not stopping her from being in high demand among friends and family members coming to her father's Houston barber shop.

The 7-year-old barber is also attracting a lot of attention by competing in hair-cutting competitions throughout the state.

Her father, Franky, said Alijah showed interest and hair-cutting skills when she was as young as four years old.

"I taught her the right maneuvers, and her watching me over time, from here on I was like, hey, she is going to be the coldest barber I know," Franky told ABC13 Houston.

Alijah's family is now raising money so she can attend nationwide competitions.
