This woman decides to get ready for her wedding. Seven hours later, her fiancé doesn’t recognize her!

Hairdressing or styling may seem like simple, straightforward professions but they are actually often incredibly challenging. Sara Pestella, a colorist who works in a salon in Florida, never imagined the challenge ahead when Holly, a plantation gate guard in Destin, walked through her door. The woman had completely let herself go, with straggly hair that reached down to her hips. Holly, however, was determined to change her look in time for her wedding.

Holly hadn’t cut her hair in years. It was dry, heavily damaged and partly bleached — leaving it two-toned brown and then blonde from the shoulders down. The reason Holly looked the way she did was largely because of something her father had once told her: «Women have to have long hair in order to be pretty,» he had said. These words must have really stuck with her because she always felt like she needed to keep her hair long. But that was about to change…

Holly was getting married and desperately wanted a new look for her big day. It took a team of specialists at the avant-garde salon to attempt the impossible. First, the stylist chopped off more than two feet of Holly’s hair, then the colorist spent a further seven hours working in four stages and using multiple shades of color to achieve the final result.

The colorist literally worked all night on the transformation and boy was it a transformation! Simply amazing — just take a look at these pictures of Holly with her beautiful golden tresses now:

«Holly feels beautiful in her own skin», said Sara, proud to be part of such a major makeover project that left her customer speechless. What’s more, Holly gets to maintain her look for another year, completely free of charge!

While the new hairstyle only changed Holly’s external appearance, it made her feel good about herself on the inside. Sometimes all it takes is a little pampering here and there to make someone feel beautiful inside and out. We wish Holly all the best and hope she has a wonderful wedding!


‘Bride-to-be’ runs off with $900 of services so salon posts footage online to track her down

In February 2015, a woman walked into a hair salon in Burbank, California, saying she felt horrible about her appearance.

“Ashley” visited de Cielo Salon and Spa but gave no last name. She told Samantha, a stylist, that she had an appointment — even though she didn’t.

But Ashley did have an urgent request. She said she was supposed to take her engagement photos the next day and desperately wanted to feel good about herself.

Feeling sorry for the helpless bride-to-be, Samantha kindly booked her right there on the spot. There was so much work to do, like removing Ashley’s hair extensions, coloring her hair, putting the extensions back in, and then more coloring.

Six hours later, when all was said and done, Ashley had received $900 in salon services.

But before going up to the counter to pay, the client asked to use the restroom and then slipped out the front door… without paying! Instead, she hurried outside to a white SUV with no license plates and took off. Unbelievable!

However, she didn’t realize that the entire thing was caught on the business’ surveillance camera.

With no idea who this woman actually was or her whereabouts, the salon posted the footage to its Facebook page. And what do you know? A stylist from another local salon claimed the suspect did the exact same thing to her!

It only took 24 hours for an eagle-eyed citizen to recognize the woman in the footage and send police a tip. She was quickly charged and arrested for her crimes.


The hairdresser saw the 16-year-old’s hair and gasped for breath. Thirteen hours later, she was unrecognizable.

Working as a hairdresser, Kayley Olsson has to deal with all kinds of hair every day. But when she met this teenager, the young woman from Iowa was hit particularly hard:

«Today I had one of the hardest experiences with my client who I am keeping anonymous. I had a 16-year-old girl come in who has been dealing with severe depression for a few years now. She got to the point where she felt so down and so worthless she couldn’t even brush her hair.

She told me she only got up to use the restroom. She starts back at school in a few weeks but she has her school pictures today. When she walked in she told us ‘just cut it all off, I can’t deal with the pain of combing it out,’ she called herself worthless for it. It honestly broke my heart and we tried everything we could to keep this child’s hair for her!

At the end of the day I want this to be a lesson to people. MENTAL HEALTH is a thing, it affects people all around the world and of all ages! PARENTS take it seriously, don’t just push your kids off and tell them to get over something they legitimately can’t. A CHILD should NEVER feel so worthless to not even want to brush their hair.

After being here 8 hours yesterday and 5 hours today we finally made this beautiful girl smile and feel like she IS worth something! Her last words to me were, ‘I will actually smile for my schools pictures today, you made me feel like me again.’»

For 13 hours, Kayley and her colleagues worked tirelessly to make the girl feel better again after weeks of misery. Almost 200,000 people have since reacted to the hairdresser’s Facebook post, and all are in agreement: what a wonderful gesture!

52-year-old adds purple streaks to her gray hair, minutes later stunning transformation takes shape

Women have been using makeup to transform their looks for centuries. The Egyptians used kohl eyeliner, the Chinese applied rice powder to their face, and Romans tended to favor expensive red ochre for their cheeks. Living in modern times means that we don’t have to worry about creating our makeup from scratch, but we still have to master the art of applying it.

There’s no end to the number of fresh-faced young ladies on YouTube who are eager to show us their daily makeup routines, but their tricks don’t always work for mature women. Thankfully we have Monique Parent to show us how she uses the power of makeup to transform her pretty but plain looks into a gorgeous goddess.

Monique’s personality is always so upbeat, and you can’t help but want to follow along as she cheerfully exclaims, “Let’s get started, shall we!” First she applies moisturizer, which is something that all dry skin deeply craves.

But, her next step is something that mature women usually aren’t brave enough to do – she starts brushing purple streaks into her grey hair. It sounds like a nightmare for anyone over 25, but wait until you see the incredible results!

After tucking her hair into a bun, Monique applies the usual makeup that we’re all familiar with – foundation, concealer, powder, and blush.

She adds a bright purple pop of color to her eyelids, which match her equally bold hair! You may have heard that the eyes are the windows to your soul, and Monique really knows how to make her soul shine through loud and clear.

Her perfectly polished eyebrows, purple lipstick, and smokey eyeliner add even more depth to her incredible makeover. But, Monique hasn’t barely even touched upon her stunning transformation!

After she unpins her hair, Monique gets to work on turning those purple streaks into a visually stunning masterpiece. You might think that bright colors and purple hair are things that mature ladies should steer clear of, but this lady proves that age isn’t a barrier when it comes to being playful with your appearance.

After all her hard work, Monique literally looks at least 20 years younger! It just goes to show that the power of makeup can do wonderful things for women of all ages – all it takes is a fabulous attitude!
