Mom Is Overwhelmed With Makeover For Son’s Wedding
This one is extra fun to watch because The Makeover Guy gave her two looks: a glammed up one and an everyday one.

Weddings should be all about the lovely couple. Yet, that doesn’t mean the mom of the groom shouldn’t feel beautiful too! Not only does a mother deserve it for everything she does (we don’t need to start making a list), she’s usually a guest of honor that gets a teeny-bit of the spotlight as well.

Penny is a mom from Ohio who was excited about her son’s wedding that was right around the corner. Naturally, she wanted to “look her best” for the couple on their big day. But instead of just heading to the makeup counter at her local department store – Penny decided to spring for a brand new look altogether.

If you want to be transformed into the most fabulous version of yourself, then a brilliant choice is to go see Christopher Hopkins (Aka: The Makeover Guy).

With the special event drawing near, Penny traveled all the way to Minneapolis to visit the renowned stylist’s salon. Initially, her hair was graying at the roots and hung past her shoulders. The mom explained to the camera that she trusted Christopher to “do whatever” – which always makes it extra exciting to see the results!

When the “new Penny” is revealed she’s completely blown away by what she sees.

Thanks to The Makeover Guy, she has a shorter hairstyle made up of waves, and it’s a nutty shade of brown. She also has bangs too! But that’s not all…

Penny looks like a glamorous movie star with false eyelashes and a face full of makeup. She’s so stunned by her appearance that she breaks into giggles that cause her eyes to fill with tears.

One viewer commented on YouTube:

“Wow, what a transformation. Girlfriend is gorgeous! She reminds me of Brenda Vacarro.”

Christopher wasn’t done yet though.

The initial reveal was a look Penny could wear on special occasions (like her son’s wedding). However, he also wanted to show her how she could tone it down for everyday life. So the first thing Christopher did was peel off her false eyelashes.

Right in front of our eyes, The Makeover Guy then works on Penny’s makeup to make her look less “glammed up.” In no time, the mom looks just as gorgeous in a more subtle way.

Christopher wrote in the YouTube video’s description:

“We showed her how to look natural for every day. But we glammed her up for her reveal. She was shocked. So I took it down to show her how simple it is to bring it down.”

It’s a rare treat to see two versions of a Makeover Guy transformation. Lucky for Penny, she’d be able to look like a “hot mama” on her son’s special day, but she could also be beautiful on normal days too.

A commenter posted:

“The BANGS! Darlin, those bangs are banging on you! Love it. Love the color too! So happy for you. You look like a whole new, younger, sexy lady!”

Another viewer posted a comment for Christopher, who’s helped a lot of women with his best-selling book, Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45.

“This is beyond fantastic! Love, love, LOVE watching these transformations. And I’m so excited! I bought STAGING YOUR COMEBACK and am in the process of making changes. Got a new haircut, bought some new makeup, and next I’m tackling the closet. (Maybe your Mom could write her own book too!)…”
