Tons of people are fans of big, bushy beards. They like the look, the scruff, the smell, all of it. But every once in a while, it’s cool to change up your look, and that’s exactly what one man did — this veteran shaved for the first time in 12 years to look absolutely unrecognizable and fantastic. Here is what 38-year-old Josh looked like before the drastic change.
According to Josh’s girlfriend, Heidi, he stopped shaving after he was discharged from the military, some 12 years prior. He grew accustomed to wearing the same basic outfit every day, a white T-shirt, jeans, and boots. Heidi grew tired of the look and enlisted the help of Oprah Winfrey and Tim Gunn to give Josh a makeover.
Josh challenged the show hosts to make him look better than he already did. Gunn opted not to completely shave off his beard, but rather give it a good trim. He also dressed the veteran up in some designer clothes, and this was the final result:
“I feel like a new man,” Josh said after the makeover. And he certainly looks like a new man!
Josh’s girlfriend enjoyed the change as well. “He looks great, and this is exactly what I’ve been trying to get him to do,” she said. “He still has beard and [facial] hair, but he looks great. I can’t get over it. Thank you, Tim!”
Seeing a radical transformation work out like this is always great.
