It’s amazing how much a makeover can change not just the way you look, but the way you feel. Many people forget the importance of feeling good about their appearance — especially as they get older.
One grandmother from Iron Mountain, Michigan decided it was time for a new look.
So, she turned to the one and only Makeover Guy.
“It’s time to do something that’s just for me,” she said. “Hopefully, this is gonna be the ticket.”
Kelly’s main challenge was that her hair had become brittle and frail from too many hair treatments.
She assumed that it was straight — but the Makeover Guy helped her find her hair’s natural wave.
The result was a stylish look that emphasized the curls. With her hair cut short, Kelly’s natural waves stood out even more. It was a gently tousled look that came across as totally effortless but also classy and mature. Yet there was a real element of fun to her new hairstyle with its bouncy curls and highlights.
When Kelly first looked at her reflection, she couldn’t speak for a few moments.
She gasped in excitement but couldn’t manage to articulate her feelings. Finally, she settled on raising her arms and doing a little dance of happiness.
“I feel gorgeous!” she said at last. “It’s not pretty, it’s frickin’ gorgeous. I’m glad we’re going out for dinner tonight. I can be glamorous and fabulous.”
Her excitement continued, with the newly-fabulous grandma performing a happy ballet spin for the camera.
Then, when the Makeover Guy came over, she gave him a hug while still grinning from ear to ear.
There was a lot of thought that went into Kelly’s new look.
“Kelly came in from the Upper Michigan Peninsula with very fragile and overly processed hair,” reads the video description. “She thought it was pin straight but discovered her natural wave supported with pin curls. A slightly pear shaped face hair was given width at the temples and drawn forward to balance close set eyes. Lips are kept soft to draw focus up to the eyes.”
When her children and grandchildren came in, they almost didn’t recognize her.
They couldn’t believe that Kelly’s look had changed so drastically.
The Makeover Guy is actually Minneapolis-based stylist Christopher Hopkins. He’s a highly-respected stylist who helps people completely reinvent their look. He’s authored books and even been featured on Oprah.
Once a struggling singer, Hopkins also studied at the Horst International Academy for Beauty. He produced several web video series including “Whadja Do Today?” and “The Power of Pretty.”
He focuses particularly on helping women shape their mature look once they reach their senior years.
Hopkins wrote a book on the subject entitled “Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45.” Since then, he’s been helping women like Kelly feel amazing about themselves at his salon in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
You will be blown away by this grandma’s new look that takes 20 years off her age!
