Tang Jinlian, 71, has cut hair for 38 years.
In 2002 she opened a hairdressing shop for the elderly in Yuelu district of Changsha, capital city of Central China's Hunan Province.
She has charged 3 yuan a cut for 20 years.
When she first arrived in difficult financial circumstances in Changsha, Tang remembers many kind people helped and cared for her.
That's why Tang made a pledge to herself to repay society by always charging 3 yuan, or 50 US cents, a cut.
In a letter one elderly customer praised Tang's spirit of "priceless honesty."
