After spending 25 years sleeping rough on the streets of Palma, Spain, a homeless man has been given a free makeover by a local hair salon.

The result left the 55-year-old man, Jose Antonio, in tears. "This is incredible, is this me?" he said after the makeover was revealed. "I'm so different, no-one's going to recognise me unless I tell them who I am."

The video was actually shot in 2015, but has been shared by the salon to celebrate their third anniversary. Since it was uploaded to YouTube it's been watched almost 600,000 times. According to The Huffington Post, Jose "is now living in a shared apartment which is partly being paid for by an anonymous donor. He’s also actively searching for a full-time job."
