Makeover: “Thin Fine Hair and a Small Head,” by Christopher Hopkins, the Makeover Guy®
Joyce came in from Hastings, Minnesota and was really not seeing her true beauty. Afraid of losing length, I left as much as possible while still having it fall into flattery. Margaret Bodensteiner created a very updated natural blonde creating a darker base and lighter ends. Kami Kleven taught some youthful makeup tricks and Joann Hopkins helped Joyce better understand how to dress for her body type.
Joyce: Joyce Murphy. Robert: And Joyce how did you hear about us? Joyce: Um, my co-worker gave me a great birthday gift. Joyce: Joyce from Hastings.Christopher: You’re really old. Joyce: Old! Flabby. Christopher: Class of ’82? Joyce: Yes! Christopher: Well there you have it. Joyce: There it is. Christopher: Why do we even show up in the morning? Joann: She wants to fade into the woodwork and have not have anybody notice her. Christopher; Me too. Joann: We already did the silhouette. Joyce: Well, I like my length. Christopher: Of course. Joyce: I think I put that on there. Christopher: OK. Well there you have it. Joyce: Because it’s so thin I don’t feel like shorter styles would me any better. Christopher: She’s wrong. But it’s okay. Christopher: It will be dark into here and then light. Stylist: And even a level seven, eight? I could do eight so we don’t freak out too much. Christopher: Like this somehow? That’s better. See how the length comes up like that it looks better than this?Colorist: Today on Joyce we are adding a little bit of depth and cooling off her color to make it more neutral. We are going to do a lot of hand painting so it looks very natural and the regrowth will be really nice and easy to maintain. Christopher: What I have to do is not take your anxiety into myself because then I do not as good a job and I have to cut to make you look good.
Makeup Artist: We’re doing the whole lid with the all over light color. And this just evens out all of the skin tones and breaks it all up but using a color that is good for your eye color.
Joyce: I just want a fresh new look and get out of this ’80’s hairdo that I’ve had forever. I love my new look. Love it. Love the volume, the color, everything’s fabulous. I love it!
Joyce: Really short short haircut. Christopher: Did you have a pixie when you were younger? Joyce: I did! My mother kept me in a Pixie all the time. Christopher: We’re creating a little volume. Look at that! Volume! Joyce: I’m just amazed. Holy head of hair, I can’t believe it! Christopher: You look very pretty. Do we agree now that you look very pretty? You can say it. Joyce: Ok. I feel pretty. Christopher: Good! Friend: Look at you! Fabulous. Do you love it? Joyce: Yeah. Do you like the color? Friend: I love the color. I love the cut. I think you look spectacular. Joyce: He is going to say “You look beautiful!”
