Just because you’re a grandma, doesn’t mean you have to look like one too. This is exactly how 60-year-old Janet from Buffalo, New York felt, which is why she wanted to ditch the “old, dowdy” look she had taken on.
There was one stylist who was perfect for the job to help bring out Janet’s inner youth – none other than The Makeover Guy! Like many others before her, Janet flew out to his salon in Minneapolis, Minnesota ready for the experience of a lifetime.
When you’re a mom, you often put yourself on the back burner to care for your family. Then for those with a career as well, it’s understandable that it can seem as if there’s not much “me time” left in a day.
Janet is a mother and grandmother who spent years working in the medical field as a registered nurse. However, when she finally sat down in Christopher Hopkins’ salon chair, she was retired and hoping for a brand new appearance.
And oh boy, did she ever get one.
People who are fans of The Makeover Guy’s videos online know how addicting they can be. After discovering Christoper on YouTube and Facebook, Janet too couldn’t help watching binge-watching them like the rest of us.
She admitted to the camera:
“…I got hooked on his videos and I watched 438 videos, but they were all so inspiring and so exciting I said, ‘I just have to do this.'”
In addition to being a renowned celebrity-stylist, Mr. Hopkins is also a best-selling author, singer, and overall magician when it comes to working with a pair of scissors helping hundreds and hundreds of women feel better about themselves.
The Makeover Guy agreed with Janet that she was in desperate need of some updating, especially in the hair department.
In the beginning, Janet’s naturally curly hair was graying at the roots, which added to her “grandma” look. But, besides wanting some help with coloring, she was fine to say goodbye to her longer tresses and go short.
What makes this video unique is we get to see Christopher in action as he looks at his muse to get a vision of what he’s going to do. Eventually, he picks up Janet’s hair and makes a chop. There was no going back now!
Once the new Janet is revealed it’s easy to see that she made the right decision traveling to MAKEOVERGUY Appearance Studios. Frankly, it’s as if Christopher turned back the hands of time.
Janet got her wish to have a shorter cut, which after the transformation looks healthy, vibrant, and beautifully colored. In her interview, she said she felt “alive” and like she was in her 30s again! Even the woman accompanying Janet is stunned during the reveal.
The new Janet offered some advice for those who were also pondering whether or not to embrace change.
“If you’re thinking about doing it, just do it.”
Since the video was uploaded to The Makeover Guy’s YouTube channel it’s been viewed over a million times. People have been sharing their positive reactions in regards to Janet’s transformation.
“Young and alive! This is one of the most amazing transformations……..motivational to those of us stuck in a rut to do something like this….”
Another person commented:
“What a beauty! All those years looking after people, and she finally takes time for herself. She looks gorgeous gorgeous. Very emotionally moving.”
