Minaya, from Minnesota, was looking for a change. She heard about The Makeover Guy from social media and YouTube, and decided to pay him a visit herself to see if he could help her and her current hair catastrophe. Christopher Hopkins, aka, The Makeover Guy, is a professional stylist with a myriad of other talents. Christopher’s YouTube channel has skyrocketed in popularity, and it’s easy to see why. He’s charming, honest, and uplifting. You can tell he wants to make his clients feel confident in their own skin, and Minaya is no different.

This woman was feeling “blah” about her hair and her appearance in general. As you can see, she was in the process of growing out her gray hair, but she was understandably frustrated and impatient. Plus, long hair is a lot of maintenance and upkeep, especially the older you get. Gray hair is often coarser and more stubborn than regular hair, which means it can be difficult to tame and style the way you want.

Christopher is notorious for chopping off long hair and encouraging his clients to ease into the aging process gracefully rather than fight it tooth and nail. I think Minaya is an excellent example of how shorter hair and natural gray hair looks so much better! I just adore her cute pixie cut. And I’m not the only one.

Her husband is so sweet when he sees her! He even tears up a bit. The two of them chat in front of the camera, but he can’t keep his eyes off her. Her husband said when they dated in high school she had the same short hair, and he absolutely loves it. “Now all you need is a Ramones T-shirt and a black mini skirt!”
