We're bringing out the big guns for this one! We assembled a star style squad made up of some of our favorite pros in the business: Makeup gal Mally Roncal, fashion stylist Joe Zee and hairstylist Chris Appleton are lending their talents to one very deserving candidate.
Meet Imelda, a 25-year-old mom from Westchester, NY. She's raising her 2-year-old daughter while working and in school.
"Unfortunately, when I was 22, I became a widow and a single mother," Imelda tells us. "My partner had a brain aneurysm about a week before our daughter was born. Ever since then, I haven't really paid much attention to myself — or my style."
She went back to school and is due to graduate college this coming summer, but she says her style is still stuck in high school. "I never really quite got the hang of dressing professionally, dressing up for myself."
Imelda hasn't had a haircut in about a year, and she admits she doesn't usually do much with her hair besides washing it, brushing it and sometimes putting it up in a ponytail.
See Imelda's hair, makeup and style makeover reveal in the video above. Her mom, Mary, was in the audience — and it's hard to tell who shed the most happy tears: Mary, Imelda or Mally!
