With years, his hair turned grey, and he grew a large, unkempt beard. One of his regular customers was the owner of La Salvajeria salon, and he invited Mr. Antonio to have his hair done.

More than a year after the video was shot, Mr. Antonio is now reportedly clean shaven and has got his grey hair back. Sources said he has retained a healthier look and hopes the viral video will help him get a job.

After the makeover, Antonio returned to the streets to take in the response of his community. People loved the changed but were concerned he wouldn't be able to maintain the look.

Many who commented on the video worried that the homeless man will still have to return to the streets despite looking so different.
