Divorce can be a pretty sad thing, especially when you separate from your spouse after over 40 years. That was the case for Vicki of Dallas, Texas. Her marriage of 44 years had just recently ended the month before she decided to take the next step in her life: Getting a makeover. After all, this was the first time she was single since she was just 18!
The woman felt lost after being single again. Wanting to free herself of the sadness, she decided to pay a visit to Christopher Hopkins, aka the Makeover Guy, aka the Christopher Hopkins Image Center in Minneapolis.
Vicki visited his salon, where she received an extreme makeover. After her transformation, she found herself eager to live life again.
She started telling her story and broke down in tears halfway through, but Christopher reassured her that crying is a positive release of energy. And I can only agree.
After 44 years of marriage, Vicki was of course moved by her new life. She hasn’t been out since she was 18 and the thought of going back “out there” was daunting. But what better way to get the ball rolling than to look stunning?
Christopher knew he would be able to make Vicky beautiful – the woman with a big soul was definitely full of life and it was just a matter of making sure her body reflected that too.
Christopher felt that Vicki was completely devastated by her divorce and decided to do more than just style her hair. He wanted to give her a full makeover.
Starting with her locks, Christopher reduced a bit length and dyed them to a lighter shade. Her eyebrows were dyed as well and became lighter in color.
Christopher also took it another step further and did Vicki’s makeup. Her features were highlighted afterward, giving her face a radiant glow.
When it was time for the big reveal, Vicki was completely unrecognizable.
Before her transformation, her eyes looked sad, but afterward, it was like she was a completely different person. Her eyes were sparkling, and she was flashing a genuine smile.
