One hot mama!

In honor of the 69th Primetime Emmy® Awards, which airs this Sunday, September 17, on CBS, we gave one of our viewers, Paula from Indiana, a makeover worthy of the red carpet — complete with a chop of her 45-inch hair. Yes, you read that right: 45 inches.

Paula definitely had an emotional reaction to her glam reveal, which came courtesy of “The Chew”’s Clinton Kelly.

But the person who was most taken aback? Her son, Spencer, who Paula actually nominated first for a makeover, because he, too, had super-long hair. But after cutting it short for a new job, he offered the makeover to her instead, so she could get glam for a family wedding in November. How sweet is that?

And he couldn’t have been more moved by the results.
 


With his hands on his cheeks and a huge smile on his face, Spencer tells his mom, “I love it! She looks absolutely fantastic.”

“I think you look beautiful," Rach adds. "I think you’re going to be belle of the night. There’s going to be the bride, and then you!”

Paula was so thankful for the fresh start. “I came here with no confidence at all,” she says, tearing up. “And now I could walk the red carpet and feel at ease.”

That’s what it’s all about! Watch it all in the video above.
