A Homeless Man Gets the Makeover of His Life

 

So, you’ve probably seen the video of this guy doing the rounds on Facebook and Twitter. The 55-year-old Jose Antonio, a homeless man from Majorca who got the makeover of his life. Well, we’re going to show you again, because this really is a cool story!

Jose was well known around the small Spanish island, having spent the last 25 years living on the streets. It was nearly two years ago that Jose made it known he was looking for a job and a girlfriend, and that was when La Salvajeria Salon stepped in.

The boys and girls at La Slavajeria gave Jose a complete makeover, new clothes, haircut etc. The confidence boost this gave him clearly lasted, as 18 months later, Jose had found a job and an apartment.

Speaking to the Mail Online, Jose said:

‘I doubt any of these changes would have happened if it wasn’t for the help of people like the hair salon owner and other locals who have assisted me to get back on my feet. I’ll be eternally grateful to them. It’s not just a change of looks. It’s changed my life.’

What we can take from this, is that a simple act of kindness to a brother goes a very long way indeed. Finally, we should remember that the percentage of men living rough, due to hitting hard times, such as job loss, unfair divorce settlements etc, as opposed to women, is astronomically high, and something needs to be done about that!
