After the two friends are done with shaving their heads and have received their new looks, Jeol goes on to comfort Neftali. He gets rid of the remaining hair on their heads using a hairdryer.

Later, Neftali shared the video on Instagram too. There, he explained in detail what took place in the barbershop in Alicante, Spain. He stated that “You are not alone” were the words that Joel, his great friend, and co-worker, told him immediately after shaving his head. Neftali also shared that Joel was going to continue shaving with him until his hair grows back. He also wrote that Joel is like a brother to him.

The Lords and Barbers account also shared the video. They wrote that they want to go through these hard times together with Neftali and that they want to show him the true meaning of friendship. They continued: “For the moments that we have passed and those that we have left to live. What the barbershop unites, let no one separate it.”
