Life is unpredictable. You may have imagined yourself in a very different scenario to the one you’re in now – and that’s okay.
Learning to roll with whatever comes our way is the key to making the most out of every single moment, even in those situations that seem less than ideal at the time.
65-year-old Leann knows all too well what it’s like when life throws you a curveball.
She never expected to be newly single this year, but she found the strength to treat it as an opportunity, rather than a setback.
But she knew that if she was going to go out, have fun, and date a few men, she needed a little more confidence.
The best way to achieve that? By visiting The Makeover Guy, of course.
If you love makeover transformation videos, you’ve probably come across The Makeover Guy before.
Real name Christopher Hopkins, The Makeover Guy has been uplifting women’s lives through beauty for decades.
He shares many of his incredible transformations on his YouTube channel, and anyone can apply to undergo a “personal transformation experience” in Christopher’s skilled hands.
It costs a hefty $1,800 to pay a visit to Christopher’s Appearance Studios, but to Leann, the price was worth it.
Speaking on-camera before her makeover, Leann explained that she was finally ready to start thinking about herself. She said:
“My mum passed about four years ago. I was her primary caregiver, so here I am. I’m ready to turn the page on a new chapter.”
But Leann didn’t want to become a woman she didn’t recognize. She said that she wanted to “get my old self back”, adding,
“I’d like to be well-dressed, chassis, pulled-together.”
Not a problem for The Makeover Guy!
There’s no better place than The Makeover Studios if you’re looking to rebuild your confidence and stage a comeback.
According to The Makeover Guy website, the studios mimic a “19th century parlor”, and have been beautifully furnished with one-of-a-kind antique pieces and housed with salvaged woodwork and fixtures from Minneapolis and Christopher’s home town in rural Minnesota.”
The makeover process itself is intended to “gently renew” clients to a more beautiful version of themselves.
And when you see Leann’s “after” look, it’s easy to get why people flock to Christopher from around the world.
She’s completely transformed, wearing a soft gray blazer with a white collard shirt, her hair cut, dyed and sporting bouncy curls.
Nobody in the comments could fathom how Christopher had managed to work his magic so brilliantly, with one person writing:
“My mouth is still dropped open in shock from the reveal. So seriously, I want to know how it is humanly possible to be as talented as Christopher? The size of his talent boggles the mind.”
It seems even Leann herself is in awe of her makeover.
Talking to the camera as her newly made-over self, she says:
“I look at myself in the mirror first thing this morning, and now to look at myself? Wow. Gorgeous.”
She’s close to tears as she explains that she’s proud to be her authentic self – and it seems the makeover helped her to recognize that.
Leann says she’s ready to start dating again, and we wish her all the luck in her endeavors!
