Recently, this heartwarming act of love left many reaching for tissues. Originally shared on TikTok, the viral video shows a caring boyfriend shaving his head after first shaving that of his girlfriend, Eva Bari. Eva is a French law student from Monaco who has alopecia, a condition that causes bald patches and severe hair loss. After periods of hair growth, Eva regularly shaves her head, but this time was a bit different.

During the most recent shaving session, Eva asked her boyfriend to help and filmed the process to share on TikTok. “After months growing my hair for the first time in 10 years, I had to ask my boyfriend to shave my head again… [the] first time was my granddad,” she commented below the TikTok. The video shows Eva sitting down as her boyfriend carefully buzzes off her strands of hair, taking time to do it thoroughly. From time to time, Eva appears to be sad and sometimes distraught, but nonetheless brave and stoic.

But it was the emotional ending of the video that left people in tears. After shaving down Eva’s head, her boyfriend takes the clippers to shave his own strands. After seeing her boyfriend shaving, the student breaks down into tears and the footage ends with the pair kissing and hugging.
