20 years is quite a long time. You could have built a multi-million dollar business within this period, have a lot of kids or even completed your education.
In simpler details, a lot can change in 20 years. But Roger, a husband, and a father had decided to keep something constant for two decades: He chose not to have his hair cut. When he finally did, you can only imagine how surprised his family and friends were.
Roger had decided to grow his hair in his early days. It was a decision he made in high-school. The young man shaved once and just decided that it was the first and last time. Years down the line, his hair kept growing, and with it came a history that went farther than those closest to him were aware of.
His wife, Fleur, who got married to him 13 years ago, said she had never seen her husband with short hair. She also hoped for a change.
While appearing on the Rachel Ray Show, where he was to get his makeover, Roger said:
"When I graduated high school, I shaved my hair and just went from there. Then life happens, we had kids. It was like four years later. I'd rather be taking the time to deal with hair, by spending time with my kids and save the money I'd be spending on my hair. My hair grows fast".
And so, after 20 years, Roger finally got his shave with the help of the host of the show, Rachel Ray, and a professional beauty expert that accompanied her. When Roger came out, he looked like a completely different man.
His wife, Fleur, was dumbstruck as she forced herself to hold back the tears when she saw her husband completely changed. Of course, she claimed to love the new look, ‘just surprised,’ she said.
No one was more surprised than Roger himself. The team that worked on giving him a new look made sure he did not see himself until he appeared on the stage.
Roger, who looked anxious as he talked to the crowd and to his wife, finally had a chance to see himself when he turned back. And boom!
Roger's own reaction is worth a thousand words. However, he managed to stay cool as he smiled. Hopefully, he's also in love with a new Roger. It’s been 20 years and this man, now with a wife and kids, got to see a different look on himself.
Getting a nice haircut after a very long time can totally change your look and people who haven't gotten a haircut in a while can look like total strangers after they get a nice haircut and sometimes it's so amazing!
