This Spanish Homeless Man Broke Down In Tears After An Incredible Transformation From Homeless To Stylish Hipster After 25 Years On The Street


Attention is the purest gift that we can give to each other and the power of it can be seen clearly from the story that you’re about to learn.

A Spanish homeless man who has been living on the streets of Palma for 25-years, working as parking attended in order to earn for food was offered a complete treatment in a local saloon where people have already known him well. The dramatic transformation of his look, which went from homeless man to a stylish hipster, left Jose Antonio so emotional that he couldn’t hold his tears.

The process of the transformation, which included a new haircut, dying his hair and beard and more stylish touches, was filmed by film producer Dr Filmgood and posted on hair salon La Salvajeria’s Facebook page for their third birthday. The video went viral pretty fast, and the reason you can check out for yourself in the gallery below.

“Leave the doors over the mirror open for the moment so I can see myself for the last time like this,” said Jose to the cameraman.

“Then close them to see if when they open again, it’s as if something else really opened up in my life, like a symbol.”

“F***, My God, this is incredible, is this me? I’m so different, no-one’s going to recognise me unless I tell them who I am,” Jose reacted with strong emotions on his new looks.
