You gotta admire a woman who can embrace her natural beauty. Especially as we get older, a lot of us try and play with the hands of time when it comes to our looks.
For 56-year-old Amelia from California, she too wanted to keep a youthful appearance through her senior years. However, instead of dying her hair back to its original color – she decided she’d rock the natural gray!
According to the South Florida Reporter, back in 1950, approximately 7% of ladies dyed their hair. Decades later in 2015, it had risen to about 75%.
But when Amelia’s hair started to grow in gray she concluded she wasn’t going to fight it. She explained in her interview segment:
“I like to stay youthful, but, I’m also gonna let my hair grow out to my natural silver-gray color.”
That doesn’t mean that Amelia didn’t want to spark up her look in other ways. She was ready for a makeover and who better to give her one than The Makeover Guy!
Amelia traveled all the way from her home in La Quinta, California to Minneapolis, Minnesota just to sit in one of Christopher Hopkin’s salon chairs.
Now, that may seem like a far trip for a day of beauty. Anyone who’s ever seen his work though knows that every mile would be absolutely worth it.
At the Makeover Guy’s Appearance Studios all his clients receive the star treatment.
Christopher has been making people feel good about themselves for decades. His client list has featured both famous celebrities, as well as regular people just like us. The videos of his transformations leave you feeling uplifted and inspired, which is why they’re so popular online.
Amelia was quite lucky to be in The Makeover Guy’s hands. Yet, her visit would be a little different than others. A lot of women want Christopher to dye their hair to hide the gray, but instead, she’d be embracing it.
Finally, it was time to say goodbye to the old Amelia – and hello to a fabulous new version of herself.
The reveal is stunning.
She went from having hair that was graying at the roots – to an above-the-shoulders style consisting of all gray hues. It looks incredible!
On top of that, Amelia looked glamorous with a fresh face of makeup. Even with her hair color choice, she really did have a young and vibrant glow.
Amelia admitted to the camera that she felt “relaxed” and “rejuvenated.” She also said:
“I feel great. It’s a relief when you transition from being one color most of your life. And then you have some reservations, and you have the world looking at you kinda sideways. It’s tough.”
Christopher had fulfilled Amelia’s wishes by completing her transformation with silvery tresses. There was no more trying to turn back time – which must have been quite freeing.
What did all of Christopher’s followers think about her results? Some viewers were able to relate to Amelia and her decision to go gray.
“I’m doing this right now, also. Embracing my silver/gray/white hair. I really want to shave my head to get all the hair dye out. I’m getting impatient with this in between stage it’s in. She looks beautiful! Much younger and the makeup looks great.”
Others had compliments for the stylist.
“Yet another fantastic job Christopher. You truly have a gift for reading between the lines.”
