For many years, Rita was afraid to experiment with her hair for fear of not knowing what the end result would look like. But then her daughters and son gifted her a voucher for a makeover with well-known stylist Christopher Hopkins, also known as Makeover Guy online. Then, as they saw their mom’s dramatic transformation, they couldn’t hold back the tears.
Rita works from home, so rarely has a reason to get dressed up. Indeed, she only ever put on cosmetics to visit her mom, who resides in a nursing home. It’s a place the homebody felt she “fit in very well.” Furthermore, she’d rarely had a haircut, and would have to wrap her heavy locks around her head to sleep.
From as far back as high school, Rita had never really altered her look. With a natural wave to her hair, her fear was that the style would balloon if the length was too short. In fact, the only routine Rita had to maintain her hair was to blow dry out the unruly waves. She simply didn’t know how to manage it.
However, Rita let go of her fear of becoming a “mushroom head” and had a drastic six inches cut off the length of her hair. Christopher then added subtle highlights to enhance Rita’s natural hair color. Included in the transformation was a cosmetics tutorial from a professional artist. Rita listened intently to her stylists’ advice, eager to embrace the change.
As a team of stylists worked on Rita, her daughters waited downstairs. And when she walked in they couldn’t believe their eyes, with one even proclaiming, “You’re adorable, mom. You’re gorgeous.” Indeed, her daughters’ emotional response pushed Rita herself to tears. Moreover, a sleek haircut and understated makeup noticeably elevated the mom’s confidence; she was visibly beaming at her own dramatic transformation.
