79-Year-Old Man Goes to Beauty School to Learn How to Do Hair for His Wife


A man from Alberta, Canada, who has chosen to remain anonymous, has taken up beauty school for a lesson on how to do his “beautiful” wife’s hair and makeup.

Carrie Hannah, director at the Delmar College of Hair and Esthetics told SWNS she was very surprised when an elderly man entered the salon. He didn’t want a haircut; instead, he wanted to join an upcoming beauty lesson to help his 50-year-old wife.

“He started to explain that his wife was struggling with her vision right now, and was struggling to curl her own hair and was burning herself. He really wanted to help her,” she said.

The college set up the husband with a Delmar College student and a mannequin to teach him how to curl hair and how to protect his wife’s skin, People reported.

After learning how to do her hair, he also asked the school employees how to apply mascara to his wife.

“He also asked for tips on applying mascara because that task was hard for her also, so we gave him a makeup lesson too!” Hannah said. “He spent about an hour with us for lessons on curling iron sets and mascara application.”



He then showed everyone at the college photos of his wife, “boasting about how beautiful she has always been and how talented she was, with the skill set of typing over 100 words a minute when she was working.” Hannah added, “Her appearance has always been something she has taken pride in and it’s important to her so therefore important to him.”

The husband and wife have since visited the beauty school to thank everyone for their help.
