Elderly husband learns how to style hair for wife who had a stroke

An elderly man has left many internet users touched after a video of him learning how to style his wife’s hair at a salon went viral. Why? The reason will bring tears to your eyes.

In May, Raigen Kelley, a hairstylist at The Foundry Salon in New Braunfels, Texas, uploaded a video to Facebook showing an elderly man named Andrew learning how to style a woman’s hair.

The woman is his wife, Theresa, who has been struggling to style her own hair for the past 18 years since suffering from a stroke.

After receiving a gift certificate for Mother’s Day from their children, Theresa visited the salon, and when her hair was done, she loved her new look. However, “that next morning, she took a shower and it fell down … She couldn’t get it back to the way they had styled it,” her son, Steve, told TODAY Style.

Andrew, the loving husband, wanted Theresa to be happy and went back to the salon with the intention of buying the products to re-create the same look.

“He had a list of…all the products they had at home and what they had been using over the years,” Theresa’s hairstylist, Andrea Gomez, told KENS. “It was at that moment you really saw the intentions of what he was truly after. He was asking me about the products and asking me about the blow dryer.”

Gomez offered to teach Andrew how to style Theresa’s hair, and so the couple returned the next day.

“At first, I think we just didn’t know what was going on, because we saw a gentleman behind the chair asking questions,” Nicci Meyer, the salon’s operations coordinator, said. “And once we found out, it was just one of those moments … and you look around and everyone was tearing up and crying.”

When the video was uploaded to the internet, it quickly went viral and touched the hearts of those who had seen Andrew’s loving act.

“They built their relationship on a foundation of love,” Gomez said. “I think that pours out in everything they do. If you lead with love like Andrew has done in his marriage, in their love. It spreads like wildfire.”

When the couple learned that the video had gone viral, Andrew was glad people found their story inspiring.

“This type of story may help some people, may get to them and touch them in a way that they just need to work a little harder with their relationships,” Andrew said. “You gotta just make things happen, instead of just giving up.”

Proof that true love really exists… she can no longer style her hair herself and her husband insisted on learning how to do it for her step by step. From products, to the way you hold the brush and dryer…truly one of the best things I have been able to witness in my life. Brought tears to my eyes..what an amazing man and what a lucky woman. ❤️Bless them
