Divorce makeover is the reinvention of a recently divorced woman from hairstyle, costumes to everything around her.
Recent survey says a woman's 'divorce makeover' costs £13,000. But Lucy Cavendish spent every penny of her savings on her new look. She spent £150 at hairdressers every six weeks and bought £500 dresses. Lucy also had her teeth done for £500 and enrolled on a course for £6,000. She said: 'Money might not heal a broken heart, but it sure does help!'
Many women didn’t realize their floppy appearance after a heartbroken marriage. Lucy wrote, “Emerging from the wreckage of this relationship, I took a long, hard look in the mirror and realized that the person I was had to go. This person had long, limp hair that didn’t appear to be cut in any recognizable style. She had a lumpy body that hadn’t properly moved in years and dressed like a dowdy farmer’s wife. This was, of course, an external expression of my inner state.”
Lucy has no regrets about spending £65,000 on her post-divorce makeover. 'My reinvention is pretty much over, and it doesn’t really matter to me if I meet someone or not. I am happier and more confident and, in time, the romance will come', according to her.
