“Life is short. You might as well live it with really great hair.” – Unknown
Most of us take the time to take care of our hair. That is the reason why there are so many products in the market today that promises to give us amazing, full, healthy, and long hair.
Having long beautiful hair is definitely something to be proud of, not unless it becomes too long and starts to become frizzy and dry. That is the reason why we need to maintain a good hair length, as well as healthy hair habits.
Meet Charles and Michele, a couple from Wanaque, New Jersey. They have one thing in common, and that’s their long hair. When we say long, we mean really long hair.
Last year, they were featured on the Rachael Ray Show, and together, they were about to get a major make-over. A make-over that will not only give them a new look but will definitely change their lives.
Charles and Michele admitted that they didn’t really pay attention to their hair for many years, and for them, this is the time to finally embrace change.
Charles’ hair was really long but quite beautiful too. According to him, he used to play in a band, and he’s really used to having long hair. The last time he decided to cut it was over 10 years ago, where he donated his hair to Locks of Love.
He’s a simple guy who loves music, his hair, and he mostly wears simple t-shirts and pants. At the age of 58, you may ask why now? What made Charles decide to do a make-over?
According to his interview, Charles will be dealing with more people in the corporate world now, and of course, he wants to play the part of being a professional employee.
“I deal with a lot of people on a corporate level now, and I’d really like to look more the part,” Charles shared.
He also said that his daughter doesn’t think of him as the “cool” type of dad, so now, he’ll make sure that she does.
Michele, on the other hand, shared that she works as a lunch lady, which meant that she wears her day to day uniform. The nature of her work didn’t really give her the freedom to play around with her hair, but now that she’s in her 50’s, she thinks it’s time to feel better about herself.
“When I go out with my friends they all look so glamorous and I kind of feel like the frumpy mom type,” says Michele.
According to her, she has kept her hair this long for 21 years, even older than their daughter, who would soon be turning 17 years old.
They sure made the right decision to do this make-over.
When Rachael Ray and her team saw how much hair Charles has, they were amazed. They commended him for having beautiful hair, and of course, for donating them to Locks of Love.
“His hair — I mean this really nicely — it’s like a horse’s tail. It’s unbelievable. You’re so lucky. It’s gorgeous,” Tabatha tells everyone, admiring Charles’ hair.
The hairdresser even allowed Rachael Ray to try and cut one of the four ponytails that they had done with Charles. According to the hairdresser, Charles’ hair was so thick that she couldn’t get her scissors to cut it.
The audience had a good laugh as Rachael Ray asked if she can cut all the ponies since it was so much fun, and she did!
The video cuts as Rachael, Tabatha, and the couple’s daughter earnestly wait for the reveal. Then, finally, the stage door slides and the couple were finally revealed.
The audience was screaming as they finally saw the awesome makeover. The couple was then asked to face each other, and they both gasp as they saw what they looked like!
There was no way you’d think that they were the same couple a few moments ago! Their daughter was in awe as she saw her parents look this fabulous!
Their beautiful daughter started crying as she saw her parents closer.
“They look fabulous. Oh my god!” she exclaims.
Then, Rachael asks Michele about her opinion on their make-over, to which she just smiled and said:
“Oh, I can’t believe it! You look so awesome, I look awesome!”
What an amazing transformation for Charles and Michele. It only proves that every one of us deserves to feel more confident and to be able to express ourselves.
It’s not too late to try new haircuts, hairstyles, whatever works for you, as long as you’re happy and you’re inspired to be better, then go and treat yourself to the salon and get a make-over.
