(Scroll down for video) A homeless man was overwhelmed with joy over his incredible makeover that transformed from an scruffy old man to a hipster.

The video of the incident was uploaded to Facebook by the La Salvajeria hair salon, where it touched the hearts of many people and it went viral.

Hairstylist at La Salvajeria in Palma, Majorca, Spain, decided to help the man, who had been out on the streets for the past 25 years.

Homeless Jose Antonio is well known to people in the area. He helped people find parking spaces and he looked after their vehicles while they were away.

The hair salon offered Antonio a free makeover, and he agreed as he hopes to find a job in his field as an electrician.

Hairstylists gave Antonio a sharp haircut, trimmed his beard, shaped his eyebrows and colored his grey hair and beard a deep brown.

They also gave him a white shirt and red pants. Antonio had tears when he saw himself in the mirror for the first time.

He then went back to the bar where he used to hang out. Workers did not recognize him. They served him beer before he revealed the he was indeed Antonio.

Some people who knew the homeless man for many years, did not recognize him either, while others hugged him and were very happy to see him looking so good. Antonio is now looking forward for a fresh start with his newfound confidence as he feels ready to find a full-time job.
