A stylist from Kazakhstan, Madi Bekdair, offers people a package called Cardinal Transformation. "Have you dreamed of a transformation like in popular TV shows where you change your appearance in just 1 day?" he asks on his website. Those who contact him with a positive answer work with Bekdair and his team, listing the things they would like their new look to achieve, and the professionals immediately start working on making it happen.
After everything is said and done, Bekdair posts the client's before-and-after photos on Instagram. Here are some of them.
"My job consists of various duties such as style consulting, wardrobe analysis, and joint shopping, which I carry out with my clients both online and in real-life," Bekdair told Bored Panda, explaining that he includes most of his services in the Cardinal Transformations.
The stylist said that these makeovers begin with setting goals and developing the ideal style. The second stage is inspecting the client's existing wardrobe during which he determines whether there are any clothes that can be used in creating the new look.
From there, Bekdair and his team put together a shopping list to get all the rest. A makeup artist then works with the client to give individual and specific recommendations and advice in line with the new style. The next step is all about hair. A member of the team will shape and color the client's hairdo, providing them with specific tips on maintaining their new hairstyle.
Finally, a fashion photographer comes in to capture the results.
"I've been in the business for 18 years. Also, for the past 12 years, I've been teaching at a school of stylists called "Style Session", spending the last 6 years running it too," Bekdair said. "When it comes to my clients, I'd say approximately 25% of them are men and 75% are women."
