Have you ever known someone who needed a makeover? Some people simply get stuck on a look and keep it for many years. A life-sized photograph of a Connecticut man named Ian Cook appeared on the Rachel Ray Show. It caught the attention of the New York audience. In the photo, Ian Cook stood with long gray locks that passed well below his shoulders. His unkempt beard gave him the appearance of Gandalf from Lord of the Rings. However, his family felt that a change was very much in order, as his Lord of the Rings look was anything but magical.
Meet Ian Cook
At the time of the show’s airing, Ian was a 54-year-old man who lived in Stamford, Connecticut. He worked in utilities, and despite his aged appearance, he was very cheery and young at heart when he appeared on the Rachel Ray Show.
A Long Overdue Makeover
On the show, Ian revealed to the TV lifestyle host, Rachel Ray, that his last haircut was over four years ago. The episode was broadcasted in December of 2015, and the news came as a shock to the audience, both in studio and at home.
