Tuesday's parting shot

Derek Berg took this photo of London-based hairdresser Joshua Coombes on First Avenue at Seventh Street today.

Coombes has been in the East Village in the past ... providing free haircuts (and shaves) to the homeless.

You can watch this "National Geographic" segment on Coombes, who believes small acts of kindness can make a big impact.

And you can see more of his work with the homeless on his Instagram account.

Saw them yesterday just as they were finishing up. He looked great! Nice work and an even nicer gesture. Thanks for being around, Joshua.

There are Saints and Guardian Angels who walk among us. Joshua is one of them.
