Oftentimes in life, things don’t go as planned. After seven long years of health issues, Joe was badly in need of a positive change. She had been experiencing some really bad luck recently and craved a fresh start.
“Ovarian cancer, I was run over, and had blood poisoning,” explained Joe.
They say when one bad thing happens, it starts a downward spiral, and Joe certainly experienced that.
It was one unfortunate thing after another.
However, she wasn’t about to give up so easily. After overcoming those challenges, her next task was tackling her appearance. She hated her round face and really wanted to do something about it!
She figured the best way to start feeling good again was by starting from scratch and changing everything.
It was out with the old appearance and in with something new. Christopher Hopkins, known on his YouTube channel as the Makeover Guy, was the perfect man for the job.
The celebrity stylist has been wowing audiences for decades with his incredible transformations.
In addition, he has performed as a baritone soloist with several of the top orchestras. It might seem like two separate industries, but as a lifelong entertainer, Hopkins truly understands just how important appearances can be.
In his line of work, looking and feeling your best is everything.
How can you be the greatest at what you do if you don’t look in the mirror and feel great too?
That’s why Joe was willing to travel all the way from Yorkshire, UK to Minneapolis for her makeover with Hopkins.
She went the extra distance because she wanted a real professional. “There is no one else that does what you do,” Joe joked to the stylist.
“Christopher is the best. Why wouldn’t you go to the best?” she remarked.
When the day-to-day stresses start adding up, we often let our looks fall to the wayside, and in Joe’s situation, she had the perfect excuse.
It was clear at the start of her makeover that she was very tired from fighting for so long.
However, that’s where Hopkins excels. It was his goal to give her a total reboot and the first step was tackling the round face shape that Joe disliked.
In the makeover video description, Hopkins goes into a little more detail about his process.
For example, through a technique called hair contouring, he was able to give her face a more slender appearance. Contouring is a coloring technique that involves using highlights and different color tones to create shadows around the face in specific areas while lightening others. In this way, Hopkins was able to lengthen her overall face shape.
In addition, the stylist also shortened up the length of Joe’s hair.
Between the lighter color, and the new wavy locks, she looked like a completely different woman when he was done with her.
When Joe first looked in the mirror, she couldn’t believe it.
The astonished expression on her face said everything that needed to be said. She joked that she barely even recognized herself anymore. Or in other words, the makeover was a total success!
When Hopkins asked her if it was worth making the trip all the way from the UK, Joe nodded back with a big smile on her face. “Definitely,” she said. After this journey, she will be going back to her home across the pond a changed woman.
