Feeling good with our appearance has recently proved to be closely related to how happy we are.
We have always felt confident when we rocked a new outfit or felt annoyed when a new haircut didn’t suit us, but now psychologists have come to prove this is not all in our heads. There is indeed a relation between how we look and how we feel.
And this seems to be more the case as the person grows older.
They tend to focus on other aspects of their lives- family, job, financial issues- and neglect their appearance. This, in turn, makes them feel less confident, even older than they really are, as well as helpless and hopeless at times.
One such case was Kelly, a grandmother from Iron Mountain, Michigan.
“It’s time to do something that’s just for me,” she said. “Hopefully, this is gonna be the ticket.”
So, she found the perfect person for the job- her transformation- that was no other than The Makeover Guy!
Christopher Hopkins started off as a pianist and singer in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
He started taking piano lessons at the age of 8, and he went on until the age of 19. He also played the organ for church on Sundays. Gradually, he discovered his love of singing and in 1998 he released a jazz vocal album “featuring the finest musicians in the country”.
From an early age, he had also realized that he loved doing crazy hairstyles on dolls, and, growing up, he used to give makeovers to friends and choose prom dresses for his dates. And that’s how it hit him at some point: he would become a makeover guy, transforming the looks and the lives of people out there.
Apart from a book he’s written on the topic, and being featured on Oprah, he has had a YouTube channel since 2017 where he uploads those transformations.
One of those is Kelly’s makeover.
The woman went to him thinking she had straight hair, while it had become brittle and frail from too many hair treatments.
But, when Christopher studied Kelly’s hair, he found out that she actually had naturally wavy hair and decided to highlight this element and help the shape of her face show better through her new haircut.
So, after The Makeover Guy worked his magic on Kelly’s hair, and after she had had her makeup done, she was ready to look at herself in the mirror.
When she did, she had to words to express her feelings. She just kept saying “wow” for a few moments, and after a while, she said:
“I feel gorgeous! It’s not pretty, it’s frickin’ gorgeous. I’m glad we’re going out for dinner tonight. I can be glamorous and fabulous.”
A few moments later, Kelly’s children and grandchildren entered the room and, judging by their faces, we can tell that they hardly recognized her at first. They remained speechless and took them a while before they said anything. However, it was obvious they loved the change.
When Christopher approaches her, she immediately hugs him, showing him how grateful she is for this change!
