To “freshen up” her hairstyling skills in quarantine, a Georgia salon owner decided to test out elaborate looks on a brand new model — her boyfriend.
Heidi Lee Oley and Geoffrey Clark left Atlanta, Georgia, for a more secluded cabin to safely social distance and give their two dogs room to play.
Oley told Today she started to get bored in the wilderness and decided to “turn [her boyfriend] into George Washington.”
Oley estimates they spend at least an hour or two working on the project each day. The hair experiments have earned her a few thousand more followers since she began — and garnered tons of supportive comments.
“This guy is a keeper. Sense of humor and fun in hard times is rare,” Instagram user claire_count wrote.
Sometimes Clark gets really into the transformations. He told Today the “Star Wars”-inspired look was probably his favorite.
He doesn’t mind being used as a model at all.
“I kind of like it because we get a lot of comments from people who are out there — the health care workers and stuff — who say they love coming home and seeing a new picture of me,” Clark told Today. “I like that we’re making people smile.”
Oley told Today she doesn’t plan to keep up the elaborate daily hairdos once they’re out of quarantine, but there’s a chance Clark’s alter ego could appear every once in a while.
