You are transforming every minuscule moment of a day. There are some among us who choose not to and stick to the stagnant lives they have. This perpetual mindset only stops your brain to evolve further but physically your body changes. Though, it's hard to imagine the same when reading in words, which is why today you'll come across a story of a Spaniard who couldn't maintain his physical appearance. But, on the third anniversary of a salon, they offered him to change his appearance and then what came out of it is something unbelievable.

A 55-year old Spaniard got more than he bargained for after agreeing to let a local salon in Mallorca transform his unkempt look into that of a trend-setting hipster. Jose Antonio walked into La Salvajería salon looking not surprisingly dishevelled after 25-years living on the streets. What he saw after his transformation brought him to tears.

Jose was a well-known vagrant in the city of Palma, where he would park locals' cars to feed himself.

On Facebook, the salon said upon turning 3-years old, it wanted to share something special with its fans: its project to transform a man of the streets into a veritable hipster. They invited Jose inside and informed him that he was about to be treated to a new haircut, a manicured beard, and a new set of clothes.
