Sometimes, we’re so used to one style that we think it’s the only one meant for us. But there are perks to changing styles and trying something new. You might even realize that you like your new style better than the old one!
One woman thought she looked good with her long hair, but when the stylist changed things up and chopped off her hair, she was left absolutely stunned!
Michelle came all the way from Denver, Colorado to Minneapolis to get a new look from Christopher Hopkins, otherwise known as “The Makeover Guy.”
Christopher has dabbled in different hobbies, but he is most recently known for his appearance studios or salons where he brings out the beauty of his customers in surprising makeovers. Michelle could have gone to any other salon, but she wanted Christopher’s magic touch.
On why she chose Christopher, Michelle had this to say:
“He always knew what to do and always made them look so much better, brought out their true beauty and what they should really be doing.”
Michelle had frizzy shoulder-length, rust-colored hair, and she wanted to grow it long. But Christopher had other ideas.
He chopped off her hair!
It was not what Michelle had wanted, and many men say they prefer women with longer hair, but there are many advantages to owning short tresses. For one, it’s a chance for your hair to grow healthier, without split ends! Short hair is also faster and easier to wash and style. It’s lighter on the head, and it looks fresh!
So, while Michelle might not have originally wanted shorter hair, Christopher’s new look for her changed her mind. She couldn’t believe her eyes when she finally saw herself in the mirror.
Christopher has had a lot of experience trimming women’s hair and giving them a fresh new look, so he knew what he wanted to do with Michelle’s hair.
When asked if she thought she looked like a movie star, Michelle said with a laugh:
“I don’t, but people have been saying Christine Baranski and Marilu Henner.”
Both actresses are known for their elegant short tresses, and Michelle was flattered that people compared her to them. Aside from the haircut, Michelle was also treated to some great makeup skills. With silver-blue eyeshadow, her light blue eyes popped, and her light pink lipstick emphasized her lips.
What Michelle loved about her new look, though, was that her short hair would now be more manageable. When asked if her new ‘do was something she could maintain on her own, she happily said:
“I do. And that’s the thing, too, you know. I was worried that maybe I wouldn’t be able to do it on my own, but I do think I’m gonna have a lot of fun with it. I think it’s definitely something I can do on my own.”
Now, Michelle sports a beige-colored wavy bob with highlights and a dazzling smile.
While long hair has its charms, short hair can certainly transform someone’s appearance for the better. Many women with short hair feel fresh, confidence, and sexy. Who doesn’t want to feel that way?
People who saw Michelle with her new look also said that the new haircut made her look younger. That’s definitely one of the perks of having short hair.
Remember, when it comes to makeovers, change is good. Like Michelle, getting a new haircut can feel like a fresh start. It’s also a chance to try something new and reinvent yourself!
