MAKEOVER: “A New Me!,” by Christopher Hopkins, the Makeover Guy®
What fun Alta was and had. 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.
Christopher: Then it’ll be a look.
Kami: … That?
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.
Alta: I thought that layering was what dated fullness. No?
Christopher: Well, it dated 1982 when we permed it.
Christopher: I know everyone’s like … I was there. If you layer your hair, you have more fullness. Well, it will if you perm it and curl it , too. You actually have a lot to take care of.
Alta: That’s what I’m end up doing.
Alta: I end up … Mousse and spray and curling iron.
Kami: We are putting in some highlights and I’m doing up really soft, kind of a brighter coppery red just to give her a little bit more dimension. Then we’re going to do an all-over strawberry blonde.
Robert: Alta, where did you come in from today?
Alta: From Orland Park, Illnois. I’m changing jobs. I start a new job July 6th. I’m moving from Chicago to Florida.
Alta: In two weeks. And my son’s getting married at the end of August.
… I love it. I love it. I had the best day ever.
Bought the book and then started looking on the Internet.
I love the haircut. The colour, the make-up lesson. Everything.
I don’t want to see really short hair.
Actually, the haircut surprises me and how good it looks cutting it short.
… I hope I just look like a better me.
Robert: You look gorgeous.
Joann: Thank you.
