Finding a good hair stylist can be quite the endeavor—let’s just say that many of us end up kissing a lot of “frogs” before we find our “prince”. So, when one woman happened to come across a certain salon’s YouTube videos, she just knew that she had to do whatever it took to come in for an appointment, even if it meant updating her passport!
That’s right, the star of our video, Kelly, actually flew from her hometown of Vancouver, Canada just to see The Makeover Guy. And for good reason—if you have had the pleasure of witnessing some of Christopher Hopkins’ incredible transformations, you definitely understand why she crossed the border just to see him, too!
Now, we know that it seems that Kelly has made a rather extravagant trip, but it turns out that she has quite the motivation to back it up.
The ginger-haired gal explains that she has spent the past year working full-time and processing her mother’s estate, and now that she’s finished, she’s ready for a “new beginning.” We hear you, Kelly! Sometimes physical TLC can do a whole lot for the inside, too!
One thing to note about this fan-turned-client is that she is not quite as “open” as many of Hopkins’ other “makeoverees”. If you have seen a few of his videos, then you know that most women throw caution to the wind and give him full creative control. Kelly is a bit different.
You see, the redhead isn’t interested in changing the color of her hair and, luckily, The Makeover Guy doesn’t seem to have a problem with that. In fact, he supports her by saying that ladies with bright locks like hers make for the “best makeovers.”
Before Kelly gets into the nitty-gritty, she first pays a visit to Joann, the salon’s wardrobe consultant and, funnily enough, Hopkins’ mom. This classy lady tells Kelly all about what it takes to dress for a longer look, and let’s just say that she really knows what she’s talking about. We’ve certainly never filled out a chart prior to getting dressed before!
Next, Kelly gets ushered over to the makeup station, where the resident artist spends time lining her lips for a fuller look. The beauty expert also applies some soft shadow to her client’s eye area, as well as some pink blush for a healthier-looking complexion.
For the grand finale—”the cut”—Hopkins focuses on giving Kelly a very dramatic change. He chops off several inches of her hair and styles her shorter mop into a trendy, choppy bob.
In her post-makeover interview, Kelly says that she would give the cut a “9.9 out of 10.1”—a bit of a quizzical scale, but we’re guessing that means she likes it!
