It is a sad fact that we have many people in this world who are down on their luck, including Jose Antonio who lives in Spain. However, when this local salon offered him a free make-over, he took them up on this opportunity for himself. He is well known by the locals in Palma who call him Josete and so the owner of La Salvejeria hair salon, Salve Garcia, invited the homeless man in for a new look and a new lease on life.
The best part of this entire experience was Jose’s reaction when he first saw himself without the gray, scruffy beard and instead saw in the mirror a clean-cut man with nice brown hair. That’s when he began to sob and say, “My God. . . Is this me?”
This set him in motion around town to show off his new look for the locals who all gasped at his new appearance. He later said that this make-over meant that he was now off the streets and receiving financial assistance from an unnamed company. He says, “It wasn’t just a change of look. It changed my life.”
