MAKEOVER: “Colleen Kruse Fix These Extensions!” by Christopher Hopkins, the Makeover Guy
Colleen Kruse is a local and national celebrity. Good times and bum times she’s seen them all, and my dear, she’s still here. I saw her in a show she produced and directed and was not sold on her extensions. I tried to gracefully tell her, well maybe not that gracefully, that we could fix the color and blend the extensions. Joelle Hicks toned the color and I dug my way through doing my best to make the extensions appear more natural. She’s a beauty inside and out no matter how you slice her. A comedienne extraordinaire, she seemed at a loss to pull out her one liners and felt, in the end, as beautiful as I know she is. A rare woman I have had the privilege to know.
Colleen: My name is Colleen Cruise. Well an angel sent from heaven above by the name of Christopher Hopkins. Speaker 2: Saint Christopher. Colleen: Saint Christopher. I actually have his medal in my purse, I keep it next to the hundred dollar bills. Saint Christopher. Christopher: How are you? Colleen: I’m great, how are you? Christopher: Are they making you extra special beautiful at the moment. Come with me, let’s do some more. Oh I’ve been doing make up forever. Colleen: Oh you’re doing my makeup? Christopher: Um hmm. Colleen: I would have washed my face. Very, very excited. Christopher: [inaudible 00:00:50] are you? Oh good. [inaudible 00:00:54] Colleen: I don’t have anything smart alecky to say. Christopher: That’s a good thing. Speaker 2: That’s a first. Colleen: I think he saw me on stage and took pity on me and said I think we can do better. I have some self-inflicted hair going on right now, I don’t know if you can see. Speaker 2: I can see. Colleen: Everybody can see. OK, everybody can see. Christopher really is a, he’s really an artist. I did get these hair extensions so I would like to keep as much length as I possibly can but I would like them to look more like hair that is growing out of my scalp. I’ve seen it on TV, you know Beyonce that doesn’t grow out of her scalp. I knew it was going to be great and it’s even better than I thought it would be. Do I do this? Thank you so much. Speaker 2: Until we do more, right?
