Homeless Man Breaks Down After Barber Gives Him A Haircut
(World News) 6 months ago

Jose Antonio is a 55-year-old former electrician, who lost his job after suffering from severe depression that he couldn’t recover from. Antonio lost everything he had and ended up living on the streets for nearly 25 years, barely getting by working as an unlicensed parking attendant.


 

 

That was when Salva Garcia, owner and operator of the local hair salon called La Salvajeria, spotted the unfortunate Antonio and decided to give him a free makeover, with incredible results. So incredible that he started weeping uncontrollably when he saw his own reflection.


.

Before Salva started chopping with the scissors Antonio said: “Leave the doors over the mirror open for the moment so I can see myself for the last time like this. Close them to see if, when they open again, it’s as if something else has really opened up in my life, like a symbol.” Upon seeing his changed appearance, Antonio exclaimed: “This is incredible, is this me? I’m so different, no one’s going to recognise me unless I tell them who I am.”


 

 

The video was shared on YouTube by filmmaker Dr Filmgood, who has since reported that Antonio is no longer living on the streets after receiving financial aid from a charity who recognised his plight after viewing the footage. “It wasn’t just a change of look. It changed my life. What I want now is a proper job,” Antonio stated in a recent interview with a Spanish TV station.[ViralThread]
