When you first have your kids, you are excited about your new role and don’t really care about anything other than your baby.
This period lasts for several months, and then the excitement is replaced by a fast-paced life with a toddler, when you’re not cuddling your baby all the time but chase them around the house instead.
As they grow, you keep running behind them all the time to make sure they’re safe and happy. Over the next few years, you are busy taking them to school and other activities, making sure they develop a healthy social life and, generally, caring for their overall well-being.
During all this time, your personal life and time for yourself is definitely limited, although for a mom to raise happy kids, it is important that she is happy first.
Especially if you’re a stay-at-home mom, it is easy to forget how to be a “woman”, when you’re at home most of the time.
And then, suddenly, you realize they’re adults and they don’t need you anymore. You’re free again! But, wait a minute- that’s when you also realize that you don’t recognize yourself.
This is exactly what happened to Pam, a 54-year-old mom from North Mankato, Minnesota, who had her first child at the age of 30 and has been a stay-at-home mom ever since.
“You stand back, you let your kids shine and they’re at the point now where I’m ready to move myself forward again and be a little bit more visible,” she says.
When Pam realized that she didn’t like the way she looked anymore, she made a decision: she would change her appearance no matter what.
She knew she needed to find professionals to help her with the makeover, and who would be more appropriate for this than the Makeover Guy?
Christopher Hopkins, aka The Makeover Guy, is the owner of reVamp! salonspa, in Minneapolis, and he enjoys giving makeovers to people. Among others, he has done makeovers on the Oprah Winfrey show, and he has also written a book about how women can look fabulous again after the age of 45.
So, Pam knew that this was her guy! The one that would make her visible again.
“I’m 6 foot 1 so I’m a little bit hard to miss,” she said, and then added, disappointed: “You feel like the people are just kind of like working around you and don’t even notice that you’re there.”
And she was determined to not be invisible anymore. She would stand out thanks to her new looks.
No more style-less hair, no more dull face. She wanted a fresh touch, something that would make her look young again.
At first she thought that maybe bangs and shorter hair would do the job, but Chris liked the length of her hair and decided to go for layers and highlights to give her a younger look. He also opted for natural makeup that would bring out her inner spirit.
Indeed, the hair and makeup did the job and Pam, after the makeover, is looking amazing! We bet she’ll never be invisible anymore.
The most important thing is that she now likes herself and therefore she shines! No more dull face and hair for Pam- she now looks fresher than ever!
