25 People Who Managed To Completely Reinvent Themselves
For all of us, bar none, changing our hair or going out to get a new outfit gives us a huge boost in our self-confidence. People around begin commenting on the change in appearance, giving you a new sense of self-worth. Even if someone just in passing mentions that something’s changed, it suddenly reminds you that you have a renewed presence in this world. Of course, for the person who just got themselves made over, they’re still the same on the inside. For everyone else, though, the change is definitely noticeable.
Taking Off Those Glasses
No matter whether you add glasses or leave them on, changing your appearance will always make you look better. In this woman’s case, though, it was absolutely a good idea to change her glasses for contacts.
This lucky lady didn’t just get a super hot haircut that fixed her bangs, from the looks of it she even got a day at the spa. Just look at how much better her skin looks! She looks less tired, more energetic, and younger in the after picture.
A Little Goes a Long Way
It’s incredible to see just how far a little bit can go a long way, especially when you have so much natural beauty to work with. The thing is you often can’t even see the natural beauty until it is accentuated with a bit of makeup.
This woman in particular just had some makeup applied and her hair trimmed and blow-dried. When you look at the difference between the two pictures, though, it doesn’t look like they were taken of the same person.
Don’t get us wrong; dreadlocks can look great on some people. Some people even make it look respectable, tying them up or keeping them at a reasonable length.
But too many people use dreads as an excuse to forego basic hair hygiene, and that’s what this guy looks like he’s done, with that silly face and locks of different lengths. It’s hard to believe that these are the same people! If you were looking for a new employee, who would you hire?
A Complete Transformation
Sometimes it’s remarkable how you can tell what kind of music people listen to just by their hairdo. When it comes to this fellow, though, we’re a bit stumped.
Unless his transition from listening to heavy metal to house music and drum and bass coincided with his haircut, we’re not sure what this guy listens to. He still has his hair tie on his wrist, though, so maybe it means he kept it long on top to keep his options open.
For a Good Cause
This guy didn’t want to give up that surfer look for a yuppie one, but with blond locks like that, it would be a crime not to cut them and donate them to charity. All the same, it’s hard to believe these pictures show the same person.
He went from looking like the guy at Guitar Center trying to sell you the Korg RK-100S keytar to approving your mortgage. He’s wearing the same shirt, too, which makes his transformation even more impressive.
Emo to Parted Hair
How about this transformation for a stark contrast? The guy on the left looks like he just spent all night listening to Fall Out Boy in his room… and it’s now 8:00 am and he’s asking mom for waffles.
The guy on the right looks like it’s 5:00 pm and he’s ready to go to the opera or to walk his poodle around the neighborhood. All he needed was to trim and part his hair, and voila!
Ten Years Younger
This makeover is just incredible! If you take a very close look at the photo on the left, you see how much older she looks compared with the photo on the right.
We’re just being honest, here. Even her skin looks younger on the right! Could it be that they also treated her to a wonderfully refreshing facial at a spa? The cherry on top is without a doubt that they reverted her hair to its original color, including natural looking highlights.
Librarian to Superintendent
This woman likely never thought that she could look so young at her age, judging by her expression in the after picture! All it took to knock off two decades was a little cut and color.
She looks like the librarian at the local elementary school on the left, whereas on the right it’s like she’s the hotshot new high school superintendent.
Take a Load Off
Where do we begin here? For starters, with her complexion, she should take some advice from Derek Zoolander: she really shouldn’t be wearing her hair pulled back, as it pulls back the skin on the forehead, creating a tension which clogs the pores.
And with all that tension released off of her skin, her red hair manages to accentuate that beautiful shade of ivory further. Everything from her eyebrows to her outfit looks better compared to the look on the left, where she looks like a gloomy hotel receptionist in Omaha City.
This picture had been taken just moments earlier, and yet look at how much sunshine and happiness is in his eyes on the right-hand picture! The mustache adds several years as well.
If your hairline is still there long after your 20s have passed and your 30th birthday is a distant memory, why hide where it begins with bangs? The picture on the left was taken of someone who’s gone over the hill, whereas the same person on the right looks 35, tops.
Hair Band to Coffee
Here’s another guy who went from looking like an all-out rock and roller to a respectable third-wave coffee shop owner.
Judging by the split ends, he didn’t periodically go and see the barber for a trim. Now he looks much better and headbangs without covering up his beautiful face.
Some Salt and Pepper
When you have salt and pepper colored hair like this guy does, the color isn’t something that needs to be changed. It’s been proven time and time again that it has the potential to make men look more refined.
But the long hair he had made him look like he was trying to hide behind it. He should never be ashamed, and should instead always walk around with his face exposed. The Ray-Ban glasses are quite a nice touch.
Here is another guy who was letting his hair grow for many, many years. After a very long and loving relationship with his hair, he finally gave in to his girlfriend’s demands and cut it all off.
Now he’s sporting a lad cut, but we have to wonder whatever happened to that hair. As it’s a less common color that is in high demand, we wonder if he ended up selling it to a wig maker or donating it to charity.
Looks Ravishing in Red
Beards are all the rage, to the extent that it doesn’t seem like men are going to want to allow a fashion choice that lets them skip their morning shave go out of style.
That being said, gentlemen, if something isn’t done to keep your facial hair in order, you’re going to look like you’ve just spent months in the wild and just now reconnected with civilization. He just went from mountain man to entrepreneur extraordinaire, and all it took was a trim.
When you have long, straight hair like this guy had, you must be careful you don’t wear it in a way that makes your head look too square.
On the righthand side, however, his head shape has softened significantly. It looks just right, even though we can tell these photos were taken one right after the other. It’s sometimes unbelievable how different people can look once they’ve been made over.
Who says middle-aged moms can’t look awesome? On the left, this lady looks like the weekend is finally over after she drove five screaming kids back home in her mini-van.
One the right, it looks like she’d entered a Reba McEntire look-alike contest and was just announced as the winner. The look of sheer joy on her face is thanks enough for any hairdresser. Her outfit also got a complete revamp, and now she’s sporting a stylish black leather jacket over a nice shade of blue.
Turning Over a New Leaf
This man’s makeover is one of the most drastic, as he is homeless and has been given a chance to transform his image completely.
His hardened eyes on the left make him look like a charity case, whereas on the right he looks like a no-nonsense business executive about to enter corporate negotiations. It’s remarkable how much can change once hair is tamed and beards are trimmed.
Sometimes You Just Need a Pamper
Sometimes a look can say it all, and that’s precisely what’s going on in these before and after pictures.
On the left, this guy looks like he’s had a hard day and needs to be pampered a little bit. On the right, you see the look on his face post professional head massage. After months of letting his hair grow to those lengths, nothing feels better than taking it off.
Ginger Salesman to Stud
Sometimes it does not matter how successful you are. If you are overweight and suffer from a lack of fashion sense, attracting a partner can be nearly impossible.
When this overweight insurance salesman sought advice from his hairdresser, he was told to lose weight, grow a beard, and join a band. As evidence shows, the advice worked, and Chris went from hiding in his office to modeling worldwide alongside David Beckham.
Homeless to Homeowner
After years of encouragement from a salon owner, this homeless man finally agreed to step inside and fix his ratted look. The owner cut and dyed the man’s hair, trimmed his beard, and tidied up his eyebrows, ready for a look that would change his life.
Not only did this makeover change this man’s appearance, but he was now able to get accepted into housing thanks to his savvy, sophisticated look.
No More Duck Dynasty
When this man’s wife had enough of her husband looking like one of the Duck Dynasty cast, she took it upon herself to enter him in a makeover show.
Left in the hands of a trusting makeover expert, this man’s shaggy beard and ratty long hair disappeared, creating someone who looked more like he was from the cast of Dynasty. Unfortunately, he went back to wearing a beard, but a little stubble can’t hurt.
The Miranda Hobbes Double
This woman went from looking invisible to being transformed into someone who could be Cynthia Nixon’s character, Miranda Hobbes, from the famous series about four glamorous women in New York City.
From a new and improved hairstyle to a new wardrobe, this woman has transformed into a natural beauty who could finally get job offers. Who needs plastic surgery when a pair of scissors, hair dye, and accessories can create this!
No More Gray
Gone are the days when gray was in fashion. While a silver fox works well on a man, women still have much more time to look young and beautiful.
This woman has gone from looking like an exhausted grandma who looks just about ready to be put up in a nursing home to a sophisticated woman who could easily be mistaken for a young mother. All this after a good dye job and a smattering of lip gloss.
This is a woman who has style. The look on the left is quite unique, and it is clear that she kept it up.
As long as her hair is, it’s uniform, which indicates that she made sure to get it trimmed regularly. It’s never a bad thing to change your look, however, and that’s what we love about the after picture. It looks like she’s wearing the same thing, and yet there is now spring to her step.
Readmitted into Society
As far as curly hair is concerned, men need to make sure it stays under control, lest they end up looking like someone stranded on a desert island or living in the jungle.
There’s a lot of reasons to grow out a beard, such as being a professional athlete sporting a beard he grew out for the playoffs. After the transformation, though, he now looks like another member of society, working for the man just like the rest of us.
One of the hardest things about having dreadlocks is making sure you feed the younger sections of your hair into the knots of hair.
The way this guy looked before, with the mane of straight hair popping up, it was clear that he was fed up with managing the hairdo. Now that he went to the barber to fix himself up, he looks so much cleaner. We wonder if he kept the dreads as a souvenir after chopping them all off.
Removing Years of Work
Hair continues to grow throughout human life, and cutting it is yet a tough decision to come to.
Your hair becomes a part of your identity, and removing it can feel like giving up a part of who you are. Even though this guy decided to cut his hair, he put it in a braid so he could have it as a keepsake to remember how he used to look.
By the looks of it, this guy was trying to see how long he can grow his hair out before the bouncers stop letting him get into nightclubs.
He got far, but he ended up looking like he doesn’t have a care in the world. This type of wild man look only looks good by putting in minimal effort to keep it uniform. His beard just got far out of control, but now look at how presentable he is.
This woman naturally has so much to work with. She let her hair grow out, which can be a beautiful look, but hasn’t maintained it in at least four months.
This is clear because of the several inches of dark roots lining the top of her head. During her makeover, her stylist shaped her hair and dyed it in a way that perfectly frames her high cheekbones and beautiful blue eyes.
Taking it to the Next Level
This lady proves that it’s never a bad time to go into the hair salon and make yourself look fantastic. Her smile betrays how happy she is as the center of attention.
From looking like the type of person who stays unnoticed when they enter a room, she now has a commanding presence that is sure to be remembered by everyone without actively drawing attention to herself.
