Getting older can be difficult to cope with. Sadly, in society, female value is intertwined with looks. When a woman gets older and starts noticing grey hairs and wrinkles, her self-confidence plummets. While some women are super concerned about this change, others deal by letting appearances fall to the wayside. Pat Thomas, a charming woman from Canada, was a female who had fallen into a style rut.

When Pat’s 65th birthday was approaching, she decided to get a makeover to surprise her husband.

In a pre-interview, she told the camera:

“I’m turning 65 this year, and this is a gift for my husband.”

“He said, ‘Honey, you’re already beautiful, you don’t have to do this.’ And I said, ‘Yes I do.'”

It had been years since Pat had styled her hair, and her locks had turned more salt than pepper. When describing her look, the woman admitted: “It’s not a hairstyle. It’s just hair. I want a hairstyle.”

Pat felt it was time for a change and knew exactly who to hire for the job. Cue Christopher Hopkins— AKA, the Makeover Guy.

For those who don’t know, Christopher Hopkins is a makeover master, having been featured on national programs including The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Today Show. His salon has been named modern salon of the year, and he also runs a successful YouTube channel where he showcases his impressive makeover transformations with people around the world.

Although Pat was nervous, she knew a new look would be worth her while. “This isn’t something I normally do, and I’m really ready for something different,” she explained. And if she could trust anyone to do a good job, it would be the Makeover Guy, himself.

Although Pat was willing to try just about anything, she didn’t want to dye her grey hair.

Upon hearing this, the Makeover Guy was obviously surprised. Of course, he would obey her wishes, but he also wanted to show her she could look great without a drastic color change.

Putting a dark-colored wig on Pat’s head, Hopkins demonstrates how darker colors help bring out her features and make her look more youthful.

He then explains that platinum blonde is the lightest color before white. In Pat’s case, with most of her hair already being practically white, the platinum would be subtle change— but the comparative darkness would help bring out her features and make her look years younger. Pat was clearly hesitant, but in the end, she couldn’t argue with what the wig had shown her in the mirror.

Fast forward to the end of the makeover.

When Pat’s new look is revealed to the camera, she looks like a completely different woman. Gone is her scraggly hair, replaced with something much better. But how did the woman react to the change? Was she happy about the new look— or would she have preferred Hopkins kept to her plan? You’ll have to tune in to see!
