It's been awhile since you last heard from me. Some of you are new subscribers and this is the first email from me. Some of you have been fans and friends and family for many years. I write to you today to tell you of some exciting news. In September Robert and I will be opening the new "MAKEOVERGUY Minneapolis," the first Image Development Studio of it's kind. Yes, we will still be doing hair and makeup. But more than that we will provide a place for the many makeovers that are coming in from all over the country and the world.

These falls were seen in 1680 by Father Louis Hennepin, a Jesuit credited as the first European to explore the...

She could go short, but I liked her length and we discovered her natural wave together. Sue: So, I have been just thinking about it, for a long time just looking in the mirror and feeling like what I had going to, just was it working anymore? I don’t want to look old, but I’m getting old. Kind of, I felt like any, did someone else’s opinion and whatever he’s doing a parent makeup open to whatever. I don’t like about lot of Bob’s and hairs they’ve been really blonde. I Need A MAKEOVER !!!!!! Christopher: Too square looking on. Sue: Too square. And I’ve tried with last cut to try out, to see they can lighten it up. Christopher: Yeah. Sue: My hair, it just...

The staff played a little joke on me telling her to tell me she wanted a change but to keep the length. I fell for it. Amy Z added highlights and Kami Kleven spruced up the make up and brows. We cut her long hair short above her shoulders, but she still thought it was long. Perspective. Elise Ferguson: Elise Ferguson Robert: And, Elise, how did you hear about us? Elise Ferguson: The radio, and then Facebook page. Robert: A lot of hair. Elise Ferguson: A little bit, yeah. Robert: What are your expectations for your make over today? Elise Ferguson: I have no ... do whatever. Christopher: Elise? Elise Ferguson: Yep. Christopher: Is that correct? Hi, I'm Christopher. So, what's your aspiration today? Elise Ferguson: Well, I was just thinking, I just need something to ......

We took the layered blonde bob up to give it a more youthful and slenderizing line, added strawberry and amped the eyes for a fresh new look. Alta: He said, "Well, what do you want me to do?" I said, "I don't know." Christopher: He was watching. Alta: "You're the expert." Christopher: Well, what I think is I don't mind how your length is, but it's so layered that it's ... That's what makes it dated. I wouldn't know your age, but the way it's layered, a layered bob. Let's do something shorter here for now. At least makes a difference. Alta: Okay. Christopher: Then it'll be a look. Kami: ... That? Christopher: Yes. Kami: Then this is all blended. So I think- Christopher: If this is shorter ... That's what it would look like when you do the foils down here. Kami: ...

She wanted volume, and messy and fun so by supporting the natural curl and letting it airdry we we able to capture a bit more zest. Amy Goulett lifted the eyes and Margaret Bodensteiner took out the gold and created a more skin flattering ash blonde. Speaker 1: We're taking her from a warm, golden blonde from a brighter, cooler blonde. The regrowth will be a lot less noticeable and it will complement her and her skin tone a lot more. Speaker 2: Mainly in the T-zone and under the eyes, this is where I put the face primer for smoothing and brightening. This is where we clean up the eye shadow that has fallen. Use your ring fingers, your weakest fingers and then lift up angular from your bones to the corner...

Audrey Mullenmaster created this fabulous Ash Blonde that toned down the brighter bleached look. Amy Goulet added some nice makeup and I brought the length up a bit. She has a very small head, so volume was essential. She used to perm her own hair. We hope with the right products and tools she will no longer need to! Kami: I’m completely unphotogenic Kami: That's no lie. Christopher: You're about to see yourself be wrong. Kami: Yeah. Kami: You'll see once you look at these, how unfortunate I am. Christopher: What you have is beautiful, beautiful thick... it's thick hair. Right here,...

My entire philosophy expressed by a woman who approached the makeover with the right attitude, who let us do our thing, whose determination to use the information and maintain the look encouraged us.True inner beauty. Theresa was a joy, and I could do makeovers like this forever. Theresa: Theresa Anderson. Speaker 7: And Theresa, where did you come in from today? Theresa: Sparta, Wisconsin. I was searching video on the internet trying to revamp my look, literally and I found you guys. Christopher: What's the story? Theresa: It's a mess. Fix it. Christopher: Okay. We can do that. Theresa: Play. Christopher: I think we could have more fun. Theresa: Go ahead and play. Christopher: Keep it ash to beige. That would be really pretty. Ready? Amy: Yeah. So, we're taking her blonder, we're keeping her natural base color in there. I'll...
