A YouTube travel vlogger was impressed by the brutal honesty of an Indian street hairdresser and opted to reward him.

A barber working on the streets of Ahmedabad city in the Indian state of Gujarat was paid around 1,400 times the normal going rate for a haircut by a YouTuber from Norway.

The YouTuber opted to pay the man $400 because of his honesty — he initially charged him 20 rupees ($0.28) for his services when he could have charged 100 rupees ($ 1.42), an amount he would have paid "without a flinch", the vlogger explained.
