Date January 30, 2020

A change in hairstyle, a little makeup and it's like looking at a whole different woman. That was the magic makeup artist Christopher Hopkins was achieved with one incredible makeover and there's so much we can learn from it.

The truth about hair length

Short or long? And even after you decide, you still have to wonder, how short is too short and how long is too long? Finding the perfect hair length for you does take some thought. But the good news is that there are always tips out there to guide you.

Christopher Hopkins the makeover guy isn't just famous for his skills but also his ability to discover the youthfulness in many women over the age of 50 and leave them looking vivacious and vibrant. He once revealed that an important tip for mature women is to keep maintenance in mind when it comes to hair and makeup.

The owner of IGK salons, Aaron Grenia, also agreed with the importance of regular maintenance. He shared that one of the style mistakes many women make is not getting their haircut regularly. When you let your hair grow out too long, it can lead to split ends which just doesn't look good.

Aaron advised:

I recommend a trim every seven weeks.

In the end, the choice to go either long or short totally depends on you. However, some key factors can be taken into consideration. For instance, Sam Villa Show Ambassador, Marissa Villa, advised that those whose hair is thinning as they age may consider switching to something shorter and sleekier.

An impressive makeover
