A homeless man battling drug addiction has been transformed from scruffy and hairy to polished and handsome in a remarkable transformation.

It took minutes for the man, named only as Michael, to be given the makeover which left him looking unrecogisable.

The 30-year-old couldn’t stop smiling after celebrity hairstylist and groomer Jason Schneidman worked his magic.

Schneidman, who runs the Mens Groomer Shop in Venice, California, has groomed the likes of James Corden and Jonah Hill.

And he firmly believes “a haircut can change someone’s life”.

The 49-year-old regularly takes to the streets with his clippers as a way of connecting with people as he was once in their shoes battling his own demons.

It begins by showing Michael sitting on the outdoor barber’s chair with long, untidy hair, a bushy beard and some kind of injury which has caused his right eye to become badly bloodshot.

As the brown locks drop away a devilishly handsome face emerges from beneath.

“Wow there’s a face in there,” a woman behind the camera can be heard saying.

The man grins in appreciation before another of the barbers tells him he is a “good looking dude”.

As well as serving to unleash the homeless man’s smoldering good looks, the appointment provides space for some life lessons.

“Show up for your life, bro,” he replies.https://5e2cdc75f2f614a28586f609bce035f4.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html138212091369DON’T MISSFirst picture of man charged after woman’s body found chopped up in suitcasesNeil ‘Razor’ Ruddock ‘paralytic’ drunk with bra on head after telling pals he’s ‘dying’Flash star Logan Williams died of fentanyl overdose aged 16, confirms devastated mum

“It’s not too late. How old are you?”

Michael reveals he is 30, to which Schneidman tells him he was 34 when he managed to turn his life around.

“I had nothing,” he says.

“I had warrants for my arrest, bad credit.

“I was 130 lbs. Hooked on crack. And these last 15 years, I got married, got those two little kids right there.”

Schneidman, who set up the Mens Groomer Foundation, promises to take his new friend to a meeting to deal with his addiction when he is ready.
