Everyone deserves to be treated like royalty on their birthday, especially if it’s a milestone. That’s why for Cindy’s big 60th, she was getting the best gift ever from her husband – a trip to The Makeover Guy’s salon!
The couple traveled all the way from northeastern Ohio to Minneapolis, Minnesota for her appointment. With her, Cindy made sure to bring a “blank canvas” so that Christopher Hopkins could transform her into a brand new woman.
Cindy’s husband was very supportive of his wife’s makeover and wanted her to do anything she liked (points there, buddy!). He explained:
“I don’t want to give her my influences. This is her gift, she’s the canvas, she can paint the canvas the way she wants.”
Like many others, Cindy became greatly inspired by The Makeover Guy’s 2008 best-selling book, Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45. That’s why visiting him in person was going to be a dream come true!
Some clients walk into Christopher’s salon and just let him work his magic. Cindy, however, wasn’t quite so easy going.
She explained that she wanted her hair to stay a natural color (red was out of the picture) and she also wanted something simple (oh, and no bangs). But even with the guidelines, Christopher was able to come up with a beautiful gameplan for the Birthday girl.
After some waxing, it was time for a good old fashioned haircut.
The Makeover Guy, of course, was elated to cut Cindy’s hair dramatically in big chops. He then tosses the strands over her shoulder making her cry out.
There really is something emotional about seeing your hair no longer on your head!
Once Cindy’s haircut was complete, Christopher was able to give her some useful tips for styling at home. Then, it was off to the makeup room for the next part of the transformation.
The professional artist applied Cindy’s makeup while explaining each step out loud. That way, she’d easily be able to recreate the look herself.
Cindy may have started out as a blank canvas, but when she steps out she’s a complete masterpiece.
The Ohio resident no longer looks like she should be celebrating her 60th birthday. In fact, with her new style and youthful glow, it seemed like years had been shaved off of her appearance.
Many viewers have pointed out that she resembles the gorgeous Hollywood star, Susan Sarandon!
And what did Cindy’s husband think about the final results? Let’s just say he looked like a kid on Christmas morning.
He tells the camera:
“Cindy said ‘I want to bring in a blank canvas and be transformed,’ and in return, we got a Da Vinci.”
Seriously, this guy is just racking up points left and right.
Most importantly though, Cindy felt like a million bucks after her makeover.
Not only did she love her new look, but she was very appreciative of all the tips she learned from Christopher and his team.
It’s a stunning makeover that’s been viewed more than 900,000 times over the years. By no surprise, it’s also left the internet cheering.
“This might be one of my favourite makeovers. This lady is stunning, has a wonderful personality and that makeover… sensational!”
