The gentleman walked in to the college and told director Carrie Hannah that he wanted to learn how to use the curling wand.
His wife’s vision was failing and she keeps burning herself as a result, so he wanted tips from the staff at Delmar College of Hair and Esthetics in Alberta, Canada.
The man, who wants to remain anonymous, was paired with a student and mannequin and was taught how to operate the curling wand and protect his wife’s skin.
The adorable OAP also asked for tips on applying her mascara.
Carrie said: “My staff and students were so touched by his sincere wish to help his wife of 50 plus years.
“Her appearance has always been something she has taken pride in and it’s important to her so therefore important to him.”
