Life can be hectic. We're pulled in so many directions that our personal style is the first thing to slip. Well, that's why Marie Claire is here to help. With the help of some of the biggest names in the beauty industry, we're taking one deserving woman and giving her an unexpected makeover because sometimes, all a girl needs to go from an 8 to a 10 is a visit from Marie Claire's Surprise Stylist. Today, we're surprising fitness instructor Kristin McGee. Her friend Christie came to us asking for our help.

Kristin is a great friend and a really positive person. She is a yoga instructor and doesn't take a lot of time for herself, but she has a lot of exciting thing going on in her life. She just got engaged. So, I think this will be a wonderful wedding present for her to get a whole new look. So, I hope she loves the surprise.

Kristin thinks she's getting taken out to lunch, but do we have a surprise in store for her.

So what do we need to do here?

It's just really quick. I'll run in and I'll get-- I'll get us out quick.



Come on in. We're changing your lunch plans. Welcome to Marie Claire Surprise Stylist.

Are you kidding?

No. Can you believe it?


So, Christie told us you're getting married.

Uh huh.

And you haven't that much to devote to yourself. So we've enlisted the help of some of the best hair, fashion, and beauty experts. They're gonna take you from your sweats and get you ready for the wedding.


I'm gonna kill you!

So, let's have a seat and see what the first expert has in store for you.


Kevin Mancuso is a world-renowned hair stylist and Creative Director for Nexxus Salon Hair Care. Kevin has made such stars as Reese Witherspoon look their best.

Hi, Kristin. I have a great style in store for you, but one quick stop: hair color.

I don't know about that, though.

Don't worry. It'll look great. I'll see you soon.

I think it'll look fantastic. It would be the change you absolutely love.

Oh, he's doing it.
