What's the craziest thing you've done in the name of love? Perhaps you serenaded your beloved in public or bought them a costly gift. One man went above and beyond for his wife, and the gesture will melt your heart.


Love is one of the most powerful forces, and it can lead to a great romance or devastating heartbreak. Relationships can fizzle out if couples don't do the work or try to show their significant other how much they mean to them.

An older gentleman ensured his wife knew how special she was to him. Read the story and discover the great lengths he went to for the sake of love.



A senior citizen from Red Deer in Alberta, Canada, adored his beautiful wife and would do anything to make her smile. When he saw that she needed help with one of her daily tasks, he didn't think twice before lending a helping hand.

The school director saw the older man's love for his wife and knew it pained him that he could not help in her time of need.

However, there was one problem — he lacked the needed skills to assist. His beloved spouse struggled with her health, and the older man couldn't bear to see her unhappy.


He thought of the possible ways he could alleviate some of her burdens and eventually came up with an impressive plan. He enrolled in school to receive the training required to help his wife.



The older man wasn't sure if he would be accepted into the Delmar College of Hair and Esthetics, but he was willing to give it a shot. He approached the school director, Carrie Hannah, and inquired about classes.

Hannah was curious about why the older gentleman wanted to be her student. He wasn't her usual applicant, and she was touched when she learned about his motivation.

She shared that the man arrived at the school and hoped to brush up on his cosmetology skills. She said:

"He started to explain that his wife was struggling with her vision right now, and was struggling to curl her own hair and was burning herself. He really wanted to help her."



The school director saw the older man's love for his wife and knew it pained him that he could not help in her time of need. He told Hannah that his wife always cared for herself and kept her appearance pristine.

However, by 2021, she could not keep up with her beauty routine. The school director felt an urge to help the older man and offered him free lessons. She showed him how to curl hair and apply mascara. In a Facebook post, Hair Designs by Britney added:

"We had the pleasure of teaching him! We taught him how to do volume curls on short hair, how to protect her skin from being burned and we even taught him to put on her mascara."



Hannah stated that the experience was one of a kind and a first for her. She had worked in cosmetology and hair care for over three decades and had never encountered anything like it.

The older man gave Hannah one of the best days in her career, and she recalled how his attitude and love inspired everyone. He cheered the staff and thousands of netizens, showing people that true love still exists.



The school director noted that the older man showed commendable determination to succeed, learning the new skills quickly. The post went viral, and numerous users applauded the man's actions and revealed that his gesture made them emotional.

One commenter wrote: "This brought me to tears. The love this man has for his wife is beautiful and amazing. You are also a special person to take time and teach him with patience and understanding."

Others shared similar heartwarming stories and noted that such gestures of kindness proved the world was still a beautiful place. One netizen expressed:


"Love this! My mom lost her battle with AML 2 months ago. My stepdad learned how to give her pedicures, and did so every month for almost a year."



The older gentleman's actions set an example for many youngsters, and commenters were thrilled the story received widespread attention. Someone called the man a "true role model" and stated that it was clear he loved his wife.

Another user noted: "This is a type of story that needs to go viral. What an amazing man. True love. Let's not forget the salon. You are a special person also. You made the time to show him."

One netizen shared that their father did something similar for their mother because she had Alzheimer's. They added:

"He would get her dressed each day and put on her makeup and fix her hair. She had always looked classy before and he made sure she remained that way."
