"You look like a Hollywood star."
One woman’s haircut just went viral because of her husband’s sweetest reaction.
Twitter user’s @praizekirkwood mom spent 20 years growing out her hair before deciding to shave her head. She posted a video of her dad seeing her mom’s new ‘do for the very first time, and it is too precious.
So after 20 years of growing her dreads my mom wanted to cut off her hair. She wasn’t sure how my dad would react tho….but this is how he did. 😭🤧 pic.twitter.com/Nih3jH2qSb— PRAIZEEEEEE 🧚🏾♂️ (@praizekirkwood1) January 13, 2018
In the video, her dad has his back turned away from the corner her mom is behind.
“I’m getting nervous, wait a minute,” her mom shouts from the hall before walking into the room. She laughs nervously and he turns around.
“Wow,” he exclaims. “You are so hot… Oh my god you look like a Hollywood star. You look awesome.”
For reference, this is what she looked like before the dramatic haircut:
For everyone asking about my moms hair length before she cut her hair. There you go 💃🏽 pic.twitter.com/aBYFSgEADF— PRAIZEEEEEE 🧚🏾♂️ (@praizekirkwood1) January 14, 2018
The whole thing is very adorable, and Twitter obviously thought so, too. The video went viral, earning 94,000 retweets and 321,000 likes.
“This is sooo cute!” tweeted @keybroom. “It’s so empowering seeing women embrace their beauty! I have such an attachment to my hair seeing things like this is inspiring honestly! Especially seeing the positive feedback from your dad!!! This video is so darling I’m so glad you shared!!!”
@Spanky2345 tweeted, “Your mom is so beautiful and you dad just fell in love with her all over again.”
Twitter user @kittun replied, “This is just so pure. I’m in tears. You just really feel the love between the two of them. Thank you for sharing this moment with the world.”
We don’t know what’s better — the gorgeous mom who is definitely feeling herself, or the dad who can’t get enough.
