A homeless man has left people doing a double take after a stunning makeover by a kind-hearted barber.

In the heartwarming clip seen more than 360,000 times, the frail-looking man sits on a chair while hunching his back.

He keeps his eyes shut as Joshua shaves his matted, unruly hair off with a clipper.

Next he moves onto give him a shave around the chin so to show his jawline before cleaning his face with a facial wipe.

As Joshua cleanses the man's face, the face tattoos become more visible with subtle glow on his complex.

The man has multiple inkings on his face – including dollar signs tattoos along the eyebrow and "BOSS" in the glabelle area.

For final touches, the barber puts hair-setting spray and a quick snip along the hair line.

The rough sleeper leaves the mobile barbershop without seeing the result on a mirror but viewers were impressed by his new look.

Joshua wrote in his post: "Approach others with the same empathy and consideration that you would hope to receive if you were in their shoes."

One penned: "That brother looks like the world had beaten him down. Thank you for giving him a little push to be great you’re God child for real."

A second wrote: "He is actually a handsome gent. Sad to when life gets the best of you."

"Damn he is so young, I can't tell at the beginning but I guess he must be in his 20s," a third shared.

And a fourth added: "Brought tears to my eyes. So beautiful and touching to watch."
