“I Feel Invisible,” by Christopher Hopkins, the Makeover Guy®
Lynn came in from Dickenson, North Dakota feeling invisible and frumpy. She had been frustrated with her hair for awhile and spent a lot of time straightening her natural curl. Kelly Marciniak gave Lynn a beautiful champagne blonde, Amy Goulet popped some dramatic makeup on her and I tapered the back and shaped the curls so she could wear it naturally curly and off her face. I’d like to see it grow a bit more in the crown so I hope she comes back soon!
My name is Lynn Dirk. Robert: Lynn, where did you come in from today? Lynn: I came in from Dickinson, North Dakota. I dry it as fast as I can and then let towels take over, then I use a big fat curling iron and kind of … Christopher: Try to smooth it. Lynn: Have my way with it. I’ve had this style for 15 years or so and I was looking on the internet, on Youtube at different styles and then I ran across Makeover Guy and was mesmerized. I’m getting used to it. When you’ve worn the same style for 15 or 20 years it takes a little time for your mind to get around it. Before I made the makeover it was basically just feeling invisible. I love working with my natural curl. You get to a certain age. I’m 57. I just feel invisible. I love the color, love everybody here, and was treated wonderful. It’s been comfortable all day and really have had an enjoyable time. I do. I just want to look my best. I’m kind of embarking on a healthier lifestyle and I think when you look better you feel better. Christopher: She’s adjusting right? Lynn: I’m adjusting, yeah. Christopher: She’s had her hair straight for … Lynn: My whole life. Christopher: This is her natural curls. Lynn: Since they’ve invented blow-dryers. Christopher: She’s not sure and I’m trying to convince her, but everyone go “Yay!” Lynn: I don’t know why but he’s madly in love with me 25 years after we’ve met still, so I think it wouldn’t matter to him what I did to my hair, but I think he’s doing to like it. He’ll say it’s so different. But he’ll like it. Speaker 4: Different, but I like it. Do you like it? Lynn: Yeah, I’m getting used to it. Robert: Feel it. Touch it. Lynn: This is all my natural curl. I told him you don’t like that my hair is always hard as a rock.
