Making a change is hard. Because we get stuck in our ways, we often resist change until it is forced upon us. Many of us do whatever we can to not change a thing. We try to make certainty a part of our lives as much as possible. But that is a fool’s errand. There is no way for us to predict everything that may happen, no matter how certain we feel about an aspect of our existence – life is always willing to throw a curve ball our way.
After 44-years of marriage, Vicki could not remember what being single was like. So when she and her husband divorced, she did not know what to do. Thankfully, Vicki was encouraged to get a makeover so she could feel like a new woman because life had rolled the dice. She was encouraged to contact The Makeover Guy, Christopher Hopkins, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She made the earliest appointment she could and got everything in order for her makeover. She was ready to feel like a new person after 44-years of marriage to her ex-husband, an old stodge.
Before the makeover, Vicki spoke to the camera about her circumstances. She had not been single since she was eighteen. And she was ready to get back out there and meet someone new. But it was not a happy thing for her. She worried about it and didn’t know how to approach the change. The Makeover Guy sensed this and wanted to give Vicki a burst of confidence to take on the new chapter of her life.
Christopher Hopkins is known for doing wonderful things with his clients’ hair. But when it came to upgrading Vicki’s look, he wanted to go above and beyond. She had been through a terrible situation, getting divorced after 44-years of marriage, and he wanted to help lift her up out of her sadness.
He chopped off a lot of her hair, changed the color, and then went to work on her makeup. He also softened her eyebrows, which were very stark. This helped make her face more welcoming.
When The Makeover Guy was done, he had transformed Vicki from a sad divorcee into a single woman ready to take life by the horns. She was a totally different person by the end of the makeover. And that was exactly what she was hoping would happen. She wanted to start a new chapter in life and move on from her stodgy ex-husband who had abandoned her after four decades of marriage.
If you’ve ever had to face a huge change in your life, you’re going to find Vicki’s makeover video inspiring. Watch how The Makeover Guy totally transforms the way she looks and breathes new, vital energy into her after so many years of doing the same thing day in and day out.
After Vicki’s ex-husband sees her post-makeover, he’s going to have to admit to himself that he made a mistake going through with that divorce.
