Homeless man looks unrecognisable after being given jaw-dropping makeover
A kind-hearted barber has been praised online after he gave a homeless man a free haircut that saw him walk out with newfound confidence.
The barber, who goes by @skinny_pinny on TikTok, explained that after he’d spotted the man “admiring” his barbershop in Scottsdale, Arizona, US, he convinced him to let him cut his hair – and the transformation is incredible.
The video, which has had two million views on social media, sees the unnamed man walking through the door of the shop carrying his belongings in two plastic bags, with long dishevelled hair that clearly hadn’t been touched for some time.
After convincing the man to let him cut his hair, he takes a seat and awaits the grand reveal.
As the barber gets to work with his scissors, the pair chat and laugh together and when it is all done, the man can be heard saying: “Badass haircut.”
He walks out looking like a completely different man with a huge grin on his face.
Since being posted, the video has received 272,000 likes and more than 7,700 heartwarming comments.
It was captioned: “It feels so good to help the less fortunate.”
One said: “Do you realise how fantastic you made that man feel?”
While another wrote: “Awww the teddy bear in his bag”, as a third commented: “He walked out so much taller than he walked in. That smile omg I love his smile.”
A fourth added: “We need more people like you in this world”.
And a different user said: “Now let him come back every month until he gets back on his feet” with which the barber replied: “No problem.”
