Woman with thinning hair desperate for change – gets jaw-dropping 'hair makeover'

May 22nd, 2019

The Makeover Guy from Minneapolis has once again completely transformed one woman’s look – and also her self-esteem.

Christopher Hopkins, aka The Makeover Guy, has transformed countless people’s looks from drab to fab. This time, it was Joanie Medina’s chance to get a brand new look for a look that she’d be wearing for far too long.

Joanie was hoping to have an entirely fresh hair makeover. She felt that her hair was too long for her age and she has had the same hairstyle for over ten years. It was time for a change. Not to mention, the style and look just didn’t look healthy.

Even though Joanie’s hair was thinning on top, the length of her hair was causing it took look weighed down and unhealthy.

The Makeover Guy first begins by gathering all of that heavy, unhealthy hair to the back and immediately snips off about four inches of hair. Just like that, Joanie is already beginning her transformation. It’s amazing what a simple haircut can do!

Christopher explains to Joanie how she can tell if her hair is healthy or not by its elasticity and he also shows her how to part and comb her hair to disguise the thinning on top in order to make her hair look fuller and more full of volume.

As her hair sat in pin curls, it was time for Joanie to head to makeup. The pin curls were set to help enhance the natural wave in her hair, making it look fuller once it dries.

The makeup artist also gives Joanie little tips and tricks on how to make her eyes pop and look more awake. Lining her eyes on the lash line was one of the first helpful tips.

Joanie’s final makeup look was subtle but eye-catching and it was now going to be time for her big reveal. Looking back before the makeover, Joanie was asked if there was anything she really didn’t want to happen in the process – and that was super short hair.

Respecting Joanie’s wishes, The Makeover Guy reveals her final look and her hair is now a fun, shoulder-length, wavy bob.

“My hair is starting to thin a little bit,” Joanie says. “So, it is in desperate need of some style.”

And style is exactly what Joanie got! Her new look looks fresh, revitalized – making her look years younger than she really is. You can tell by the smile on her face that she was extremely pleased with how her new look turned out. We’d be smiling too!

What Joanie really loved about the entire process was the fact that she didn’t have control.
