Frank Coleman, 50, with wife Bambi Everson
Before: "He is the kindest man on the planet, yet he terrifies young children at first glance," says Bambi of her husband and third-grade sweetheart (they reunited online after 35 years), Frank, a punk-rock drummer with the bands the Bentmen and the Dead Ramones. Maybe it's the "skullet" (bald head plus long hair), or the monster-movie tee, or the grubby black jeans. "I shop only at gunpoint," says Frank.
After: Rebel without flaws! "It shows confidence to go completely bald—there's nothing sexier," says Ellen. And now that Frank's beautiful blue eyes stand out, Bambi hopes his gentle soul will also be more apparent. Wardrobe elements are similar to his former daily uniform, but softened: a shawl cardigan; French fisherman's top; dark-wash jeans.
