For nearly two decades, a stylist from Moscow, Russia and her family had been begging their grandmother to visit. Their grandmother, Shuraaa, lived in Yerevan, Armenia and always refused to take the trip. Even when she did set aside a time to go, she would cancel.

Finally one day Shuraaa made the trip, and boy, was it worth it.

Goar Avetisyan, a makeup and hair stylist, posted a now viral video of her grandmother on Instagram. In the video, which PopSugar declares should be nominated for an award for its dramatics, Avetisyan shows off her hard work on a very special client, her grandmother.

Avetisyan’s family begged Shuraaa to visit them for 17 years.

Prior to the dramatic transformation, the stylist of nine years recorded her grandmother—who needed a little convincing—and set the clip to a sad sounding tune. With a sad look in her eyes, Shuraaa turned to show the wrinkles on her face and her frizzy hair that was pulled back in a long braid.

Shuraaa let her waist-length hair and her guard down and allowed her granddaughter to give her a makeover that was well worth the 17-year wait.

Behold, a completely transformed Shuraaa, in the video below!

Avetisyan perfectly described her grandmother’s transformation: “It’s lit.” We couldn’t agree more. Shuraaa looks like a different woman.
