An Iowa hair stylist recently shared this photo of a young woman who came into her salon looking for help.
The 16-year-old walked into the Iowa salon called Capri Waterloo with tangled, matted locks and told stylist Kayley Olsson to “just cut it all off.” Instead of doing what her client asked for, 20-year-old Olsson worked a record-breaking 13 hours, split over the course of 2 days, to restore the young girl’s hair and her confidence.
Olsson shared the before and after photos of the incredible transformation on her Facebook page after completing the makeover on August 8. It’s no surprise, the post went viral with more than 75 thousand shares and tons of likes on Facebook!
We commend this hairdresser for taking the time to fix not only the hair but the self-esteem of this young girl. We imagine that to this teen cutting her hair was a desperate attempt to correct something she thought was not fixable.
The best part about this story was that the girl’s hair was back in shape just in the time for her school pictures! Bravo Olsson- you likely changed the life of this young girl!
