The idea of a “makeover transformation” has been around for decades. From Cinderella turning into a princess with her very own carriage to nerdy nobodies becoming one of the most popular girls like in Clueless,. The “makeover transformation” era is trending with the Cinderella remake starring popstar, Camilla Cabello, and She’s All That remake with social media star and Vogue feature, Addison Rae. Although in real life we don’t get our very own fairy godmother to go bippity boppity boo, a simple makeover can be just as magical.
Anna, a breast cancer survivor, was kind enough to let us tell her story. She’s a client of Styldlife’s stylists, Ashley Brook Perryman. Anna’s story is more inspiring than any Disney princess or chick flick heroine. Due to her battle with cancer, she endured difficult losses that greatly affected her confidence. Going through intense cancer treatments had left her feeling like she was losing the person she once was. Enter Ashley. While Anna did all the hard work to make herself healthy, Ashley reminded her that she was worthy of feeling beautiful again. Together, as a team, they worked to bring fashion back into Anna’s life through the power of makeup. Anna refers to Ashley as her very own one-woman “glam squad.” With Ashley’s makeup expertise, Anna was able to feel glamorous again. She gained the confidence to get dolled up, try out new products, and go out to events with her family and friends.
The bond between Anna and Ashley is something incredible to watch. They inspire each other to find the beauty in life, even in the smallest things like bonding over a lipstick shade that they both love. Ashley introduced Anna to eyelash extensions and microblading. Anna shares pictures of herself with Ashley looking fabulous as ever at the events she attends. Anna always gets compliments on how lively and luminous she looks. Through makeup and their sessions, Anna and Ashely are able to connect with each other during Anna’s difficult road to recovery.
Anna’s story is a testament to how a simple makeover can change the course of someone’s life. The makeup, new clothes, hairstyles are not the most important aspect of it. Instead, it’s the relationship that is created between the client and stylist as they get to know each other through their sessions. It's the confidence that clients gain when they start to believe in their beauty. It’s the happiness that comes with looking in the mirror one day and finally not seeing a stranger looking back at them, but rather the person they knew was there all along.
