We all want to look our best at any age. Sometimes though – we could use a little help.
Fortunately, there are people like stylist Christopher Hopkins in this world. He’s a man of many talents, including being a magician when it comes to beauty transformations.
Christopher has a salon in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he performs the most incredible makeovers for women from all over the country – then shares their stories on his YouTube channel. He’s professionally known as “The Makeover Guy,” and even celebrities have appeared on his long list of clients.
It was Marilyn’s turn for a new look.
70-year-old Marilyn Springer from Orlando, Florida was ready for a big change. She had just celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary with her husband when she went to visit Christopher.
After that many years of marriage, it was time to spice things up a bit.
Both Marilyn and her husband were on board for the special makeover. However, she had a couple of little requests for what she hoped would come out of it.
“I’d like to look younger and have an easy routine that I can do very simply myself.”
Doesn’t seem like too much to ask, but could The Makeover Guy actually turn back the hands of time?
Marilyn had straight, shoulder-length hair that she felt was very fine. One of her fears was that because of her hair’s condition, it would be chopped off leaving her looking like “a boy.”
This meant she was putting a lot of trust into her stylist…and it’s a good thing she did.
No doubt she was so excited for her reveal and her family was so pleased with the result.
Even Marilyn herself had a look of complete shock when she first saw her reflection in the mirror. Was it the same 70-year-old woman that walked into the salon hours before?
Instead of having a short “boy’s cut” as she imagined, Marilyn’s hair sat just above her shoulders, but was now full of beautiful waves.
Here she thought her fine hair was flat, but Christopher was able to bring out her natural curls using his magic touch.
On top of her hair makeover, Marilyn also got glammed up in the makeup department as well. Altogether she looked like a movie star!
“I look so much younger, really.”
Now it was time to share her amazing transformation with her loved ones. When a family member got a glimpse of the gorgeous, new Marilyn – she looked just as stunned by the results.
A true test of whether a woman actually adores her new do – goes by what she wants to do afterward. If she simply goes home and throws on Netflix with a container of ice cream, she might not be too happy about the outcome.
Yet, if she’s ready to go hit the town and show off her luscious locks, then it was mission accomplished. So what did Marilyn want to do?
She tells her young family member,
“We’re gonna go start at this bar here, and we’ll just keep going down the street.”
Now that’s what I call a success!
Christopher helped Marilyn discover a fountain of youth that helped brighten her spirit and lift her confidence.
“I certainly don’t feel 70-years-old looking like this … I feel really, really fabulous.”
Even those on the internet can’t help but chime in about the successful makeover. Watch the full clip for yourself below to see what you think.
