The anonymous client, whose privacy has been protected by Olsson, shared the details of her hard journey.
The hairdresser from Iowa, who attends cosmetology school at Capri Waterloo, said the girl's story broke her heart and she felt compelled to help her.
Initially, the teen wanted her hair chopped off before her school pictures because she thought combing it out would be too arduous.
A hairdresser refused to shave off a depressed teenager's hair and instead spent 13 hours fixing it for her instead.
The customer, a 16-year-old high school girl, walked into Olsson's school and told the up-and-coming professional cosmetologist that after months of purposely mistreating her once-healthy hair - a side effect of a deep depression, the girl would later reveal - she had come into the salon to have it all cut off, in an effort to look appropriate for her high school's then-upcoming student picture day. "She says she didn't realize it was getting as bad as it was because she was just putting it up in a pony tail and clipping it in and she was like, "I just got to the point where I didn't care anymore".
Olson did not want to identify the teen, but said the 16-year-old told her she had been struggling with depression for some time, and was unable to get out of bed.
"She said, "just cut it" she was like "I feel worthless, this is even worthless to try to get through she's just like, "I am in so much pain" and I told her, 'we are going to try and save as much hair as possible for you", said Olsson.
Olsson finished the girl's hair transformation on the second day and the results were stunning. "We just kept combing and combing and combing", she told TODAY.
