Trying out something new can be terrifying, especially when you are clueless about how things will turn out. This is a situation that women across the world and ages relate with very well. Thus, to avoid being regretful, women spend a lot of time making researches about the best salon and stylist that could help them look like the finest version of themselves.
The same case used to apply with Debbie, a 60-year-old Chicago native that had always dreamed of giving her appearance a breath of fresh air but always hesitated to do so.
“I have always wanted to have a makeover but I had never found somebody who I thought could make me look my best.” Debbie said, sharing what kept her from going for a makeover all her life.
But as they say, it is never too late to do the things that you’ve always wanted to do. So for her 60th birthday, Debbie was finally determined to take her chances!
“I’m turning 60… This is the time I’m just gonna let my hair grow out and go completely great or I’m gonna get the courage to actually set up an appointment and follow through with it… and come to Minneapolis to get my makeover.”
“My husband doesn’t understand why I even want to do it.” Debbie said, voicing out her husband’s confusion over her sudden change of heart. But the question is not really a matter of why but who.
“He doesn’t understand that when you’re doing it, you’re doing it for yourself.” Debbie’s supportive daughter answered, understanding Debbie’s heart very well.
And who else would Debbie ask help from aside from the Minneapolis’ Christopher Jon Hopkins- The Makeover Guy?!

“She came in with white regrowth and brown ends on very curly hair.” Hopkins said, recalling how Debbie looked like when they first met. “She said the magic words, ‘Do whatever you want,’ and so I did.”
Debbie felt safe and secured in Hopkins’ care that she is comfortable in entrusting her hair in however style he wants it to be. She would even be okay with it even if Hopkins’ would turn her graying hair into green or purple!
