A Post Pandemic Reboot

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


My cousin Jenny needed a reboot before she went back to work after a Covid layoff. At 60 years old, finding a job in a new industry can be daunting. Jenny called to ask if we would color her hair. She had already had it cut at a walk-in mall salon. I told her if she let me do whatever I want, I’d give her a free makeover. “Well, I like the length and think I look better in longer hair,” she said. We had a few text exchanges about giving up control and trusting her cousin before she let go. We lightened the sides and kept it darker on top to help give the illusion of more width to her face.

We gave her back a fuller lip, with snappy, bright eyes and brows. Jenny hates to shop, so I picked up a few things that I knew would work. She has a more pear shape with saddlebags. The vertical striping on the pants, combined with the wide V of a looser fitting top, helps create a balanced silhouette. Since Jenny has a longer torso, the high waist elongates her legs a bit. We had to argue about the bras until she put them on. “I don’t like a seamed bra; they make my boobs pointy,” she said. “TRY it, Jenny…”

She was sufficiently impressed that her cousin MAY know something about creating beauty. Link to Jenny’s Pants:
