These days, sadly, family breakups are more common than ever before; meanwhile, married life is increasingly deteriorating.
One woman named Vicki, from Dallas, Texas, knows something about that, as she parted ways with her husband after 44 years of a marriage. Yet, from it she learned that when things don’t go your way, it’s important to leave any baggage you might be holding onto behind and start off fresh.
Vicki was left feeling devastated after she and her husband parted ways. She was out of the game, and she knew it. Now an older woman over 60, she hadn’t dated since she was 18. Her appearance was tired and tried.
Supposing she wanted to meet someone, though, what would he think of her? It was time for a new start and she decided that she was going to make it happen … with a little help.
That was when she decided to visit Christopher Hopkins, also known as “The Makeover Guy” from his TV show of the same name, who is known worldwide for taking outdated looks and making them look stunning. She figured that he was just the right person to make her feel confident and youthful again, and judging from comments on her before-and-after video, she was right.
You can't not hurt from a divorce or the range of emotions that come after 44 years of marriage, BUT! You can put on some lipstick, get a new do and LIFT your spirits with a #makeover!
Standing before the camera just before Vicky’s makeover was clearly an emotional moment for her. Wiping tears from her eyes, she let everyone know that she was hoping to get on with life.
“I want to learn how to make the best of me, play up my strengths and play down my weaknesses,” Vicki said standing in the famous hairdresser’s set, “and make me look better, make me feel good about me.
“I’ve been wanting to do it for a long time, but I also recently got a divorce. So, I’m starting a new life.”
Shortly thereafter, Vicky’s transformation breathed new life into her outdated and outgrown mode—with some seriously skilled scissors at work, Hopkins brought a youthful new look to life, which also made Vicky glow from inside, as you can see from her video :
The stunning change got noticed on YouTube, too, with hundreds of viewers dropping comments filled with praise and admiration.
One viewer, named Texas Rose, commented, “At first I thought a different woman popped up! Holy Cow! What an amazing Makeover … eternally impressed!”
A viewer named Kate O’Connor added, “Gorgeous!!! All the best to you in this new chapter of your life!”
With a little boost from everyone who commented, not to mention her sparkling new appearance, the real secret to getting Vicky back in the game was bringing out her inner beauty. And though meeting the next Mr. Right is never a guarantee, feeling right and confident in one’s own heart is always the right place to start.
