Woman wants short, “easy” hair – but some are calling it The Makeover Guy’s first fail

It’s been less than 2 weeks, but one of The Makeover Guy’s latest videos already has nearly 100,000 views. His transformations are so impressive that nearly every video he posts now goes viral!

But this one is controversial as well.

The “Makeover Guy” in question is Christopher Hopkins, who runs a now-famous “appearance studio” in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It’s not the likeliest location to head for a glam makeover, but people come from around the world just to have him bring out their best features.

One of the great things about this makeover artist is that he specializes in helping men and women over the age of 45. He’s used to seeing people stuck in a rut or in need of a new look to go with a new phase of life.

In his latest “episode,” we meet Deb. Deb is about to turn 60 and, like many of the women who visit Hopkins’ studio, she said she wants to look at young as she feels (which is, according to her, roughly 35 “on the inside”).

For Deb, a big part of looking younger is getting a big hair transformation.

Hopkins captioned the dramatic video:

“Deb wanted short hair. I actually thought the same thing upon first meeting her, but assumed, like most, that she’d want to leave her length and use her natural curl. She did not. It was a blast.”

Getting a big haircut is hard – and it can even be emotional. But when you’re ready, you’re ready.

As Deb shakes out her hair from her updo, she says she wants something “very easy” to care for, but she’s got a lot of natural curl to work with. (All you curly-haired folks out there know what a struggle it can be to get short, curly hair to stay in place!)

Like most Makeover Guy videos, it’s only a few seconds before we see the dramatic transformation in all its glory and it truly had us taken aback.

Most importantly, Deb said she loved her new look as she played with her new short do’.

But for the first time ever, commenters were NOT feeling that makeover.

Normally, viewers fawn over the “after” shots and agree that Hopkins brought out the best in his client. And while plenty of people liked this makeover, not everyone thought it was an improvement.

“I thought she was gorgeous and a bit wild looking before..I know she wanted it short but I think it really aged her..sorry my first “not happy” commnet EVER!!” said one viewer.

Others likened her look to a real estate agent or called it “managerial.” Others were even less happy.

Could this be The Makeover Guy’s first fail?

We don’t think so. And, most importantly, neither does Deb.

It’s true that Deb’s wild look is gone in favor of a much more polished cut and the curls are gone too (though we’re curious to know what happened when she washed her hair).

But as she says in the video, she’s the one who told him to go as short as he could.

Her makeup drew some criticism as well for an overly bronzed look.

“Well, certainly she looks good and polished now and if she feels more confident and happy, then let it be so. However I find that she now looks like a stereotype of a retierd businesswoman. Her hair is cool toned and her skin fair, the warm hair colour and the heavy bronzing doesn´t suit her well…”

Damn, people really have it out for professional-looking older women!

We’ve never seen so many critical comments on one of these videos before. What do you think of Deb’s transformation?
