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.

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.
