Kim has been a fan of the Makeover Guy for years, and she’s dreamed of getting one of his makeovers herself.

Several years ago, she told her daughter that she would love to have a true Hopkins makeover for her 60th birthday. But she never expected that her family would actually make it happen.

“I’ve watched his videos on YouTube for several years now, and never in my wildest dreams or imaginations was I going to be here,” said Kim, before smiling at the crew. “Free rein! Let’s go for it!”

“Free rein” is a lot to say to someone who holds your entire image in their hands.

But Kim totally trusted Hopkins. The result was absolutely magical.

When Kim’s transformation was revealed, she looked fresh, stylish, and fun. Her long ringlets had been changed into a perky mess of curls, and her makeup was glamorous and stylish. She got a dye job, highlights, and a floral dress in vibrant green as well.

Her reaction was just wonderful.

When she first saw herself, Kim gasped, her whole face lit up.

She looked like she was about to cry. But she quickly blinked her tears away, saying that she didn’t want to ruin her beautiful new makeup.

When her family came in, their reactions were also amazing.

Kim’s daughter paused in the doorway, her mouth hanging open as though she couldn’t believe who she was seeing. Then she came over to hug her mother who still looked amazed.

“Are you real?” she asked. “Oh Mom, you look so good!”

And Kim had a sense of humor about her new look, too. As she surveyed her reflection in a mirror, she gave it a pout.

“Hellooo, gorgeous!” she joked. “See, I told you I was gonna be gorgeous.”

But all jokes aside, Kim looked overwhelmed with happiness.

She loved her new look. It’s clear that Hopkins is a master when it comes to makeovers. But Kim had a secret. Even though she said that he had free rein and insisted she wasn’t worried – there were times during the makeover that she got scared.

“I have to admit when you cut that big clump of hair off this morning, I about passed out,” she said to Hopkins.

Now, Kim looks like a new woman. As for Hopkins, he’s on his way to help others change their appearances.
