When we heard viewer Wendy's story, we were super touched.
A resident of Bridgeport, Connecticut, she's currently a part-time librarian, but told us that she's on the hunt for a new job and a new look in preparation for her big 5-0 birthday.
When we heard that she hadn't cut her hair in eight years, hairstylist-to-the-stars Ted Gibson stepped in. (Ted does Rach's hair and even styled last October's cover of Rachael Ray Every Day).
How gorgeous does Rach look?!
Needless to say, we'd trust him with any hair, and he totally rocked Wendy's new look, but not before giving her an *epic* chop in front of the studio audience (which included her BFF Nicole).
We were absolutely floored when we saw the full reveal. Watch for yourself in the video above!
In a chic belted denim dress and a super-chic short new 'do, Wendy couldn't have been happier.
"I don't recognize myself. I feel like such a different person," she raves.
And she couldn't keep her hands off her hair, which was extra voluminous and soft thanks to Ted's Shooting Star Texture Meringue.
"I feel so free and light!" she gushes.
Another successful makeover in the books!
