Depressed Teen Walks Into Salon With Matted Hair, Then Stylist Spends 13 Hours Transforming Her


1. 1

Kayley Olsson is a hairstylist based in Iowa, and on August 8, 2017, she posted a series of photos on her Facebook page detailing “one of the hardest experiences.” The photos were of a 16-year-old client who had been battling depression to the point that she couldn’t even brush her hair.

“She told me she only got up to use the restroom,” Kayley wrote in the post. “She felt so down and so worthless she couldn’t even brush her hair.”

The anonymous girl’s locks were matted so badly that she told Kayley, “just cut it all off I can’t deal with the pain of combing it out.” But the hairstylist wasn’t going to do that. She wanted to help the teenager — especially since she told Kayley she’d be heading back to school soon. “It honestly broke my heart,” Kayley wrote.

Instead of shaving her head, Kayley spent 13 hours over two days completely transforming the young girl’s hair into a beautiful new hairstyle.

Kayley shared a “before” photo of the young girl’s hair as well as two “after” photos that are absolutely stunning.

Kayley took to her Facebook page to write a heartfelt note about her experience with the teenager. “A CHILD should NEVER feel so worthless to not even want to brush their hair,” she said about the young girl.
