Kayley Olsson, a hairstylist based in Waterloo, Iowa, and her fellow student-stylists at Capri College helped to give a 16-year-old client suffering from depression a very special makeover for her school picture day.

But Kayley said the girl's heartbreaking story inspired her to spend 13 hours over the following two days setting things right with her young customer.

It took 13 hours to detangle the girl's hair for her school photos.

The hairdresser's post has been liked by over 180,000 people who were all touched by what happened next.

But, even better than that, the cut went down a treat with the one person who really matters: the girl.

CHEST WHAT THE DOC ORDERED Want to boost your body confidence and add sizzle to a soggy love life? "A CHILD should NEVER feel so worthless to not even want to brush their hair".

'She starts back at school in a few weeks but she has her school pictures today.

"She told me that she'll actually smile for her school pictures today and that I made her feel like herself again so it was eye opening and I am so glad we could do that for her", said Olsson.

'It honestly broke my heart and we tried everything we could to keep this child's hair for her! MENTAL HEALTH is a thing, it effects people all around the world and of all ages!

"I was heartbroken. I know what if feels like to feel worthless and depressed". The teen said she felt "worthless" because of the state of her tresses.

And earlier this year, we also revealed all the signs of depression to look out for in yourself and others.

"Don't just push your kids off and tell them to get over something they legitimately can't", she said.

As the Daily Mail writes, several Facebook users who came across Olsson's inspirational story have praised the young woman for using her craft for a greater good.

"You did a lovely job", Mary Litchman responded to the young hairdresser. The anonymous client, whose privacy has been protected by Olsson, shared the details of her hard journey.

"Most people [would] have taken the easy way and just cut her hair and told her [start] fresh", Ms. Litchman continued, "but you took the time and invested time she needed to be invested in her for her to know she has beauty and value".
