When Nancy stepped into The Makeover Guy’s salon in Minneapolis, Minnesota she had really long hair. In fact, it was a thick mane that actually reached her knees!

Although many women would do anything to grow their hair out, for Nancy, she had become tired of her Rapunzel length. She was ready to say goodbye to it, and hello to a brand new look.

Below you’ll see Nancy receive the royal treatment from Christopher Hopkins (AKA: The Makeover Guy) and his staff. It’s a transformation you don’t want to miss!

It’s not every day that you run into hair as long as Nancy’s. So of course, there was some fun to be had with it while she sat in the salon chair.

Christopher had a heyday messing around with her long tresses, pointing out that Nancy would be the perfect shampoo model (nailed it). She then revealed all the costumes she’s been able to create over the years, like Pippi Longstockings and Cousin It.

Nancy was actually inspired to make the big change after reading Christopher’s book, Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45. Years later, her dream was finally coming true.

Here comes the big chop.

The moment that Nancy’s knee-length hair is cut, you can see the sense of relief in her face. It makes sense though. Having so much weight attached to your head must be a little hard to deal with at times. Frankly, I’m sore just thinking about it!

The Makeover Guy looks like an ’80s pop star when he “tries on” Nancy’s ponytail. One thing’s for sure, it appears that there’s never a dull moment in his salon!

Some women can’t help but bawl after they receive a bold haircut. But not Nancy. She was actually excited and hanging in there like a trooper.

There was a lot more work to be done.

Stylist Kelly helped dye Nancy’s hair a gorgeous shade of strawberry blonde. After that, she met up with Christopher’s mom Joann for some useful fashion tips.

Together they talked about shapewear, jeans styles, and some “dos” and “don’ts” to help Nancy always look her best. Joann explains to her:

“Where you put detail on your body, that’s where we’re gonna look. So put it where you want people to look.”

In other words, don’t bedazzle your back pockets if you don’t want others taking notice of your rump.

Next, Nancy headed off to get even more dolled up by their makeup artist, Kami. Let’s just say she was transforming into one glamorous-looking woman!

With each step, Nancy appeared younger, fresher, and overall more vibrant. Christopher even helped teach Nancy a technique for adding fullness to her hairstyle.

And once they were all done? Va-va-voom, Nancy! Not only did she look fantastic, she felt it on the inside as well.

Cutting her long hair and visiting Christopher’s salon was an experience that Nancy will never forget. On top of being overjoyed with the results, she was blown away by each and every person on the team. She said:

“It has been beyond my expectations.”

Many people have been loving Nancy’s new look too. One person wrote:

Holy smokes! I couldn’t believe this was the same woman. She looks amazing with the red hair and the style was perfect for her.”

Another commented:

“Wow – her body language changed immediately. It literally was a weight lifted off her shoulders. She looks amazing.”
