Antonio lives in Palma, Spain, where he has been homeless for 25 years.
He long ago worked as a parking lot attendant before he suffered from depression which caused him to lose his job.
That’s when the owner of La Salvajeria hair salon, Salva Garcia, came to the rescue. She invited Antonio to have his hair and wardrobe spiffed up — for free!
“At first, he didn’t want to, but one day he changed his mind,” he told La Vanguardia newspaper.
Filmmaker Santi Oliva, of Dr. Filmgood Audiovisual Studio, shot the footage in June 2015, but posted it online this week to mark the salon’s third anniversary.
“Before filming we interviewed him and we saw he really wanted to change his life,” Oliva said. “He wasn’t an alcoholic or drug addict, only a person with bad luck.”
