Toyka spends so much time caring for other people, she doesn't make much time for her hair. "My mom, she got cancer when I was going to the ninth grade, and she just died last year," she says. "So I take care of my dad, and right now I just don't have a lot of time to really make myself look fabulous."

Stylist Kimberly Kimble decides to give Toyka the Beyoncé treatment. She adds gorgeous, long extensions—and bangs!. "It is amazing. I feel like a supermodel. I love the look. Kim is fabulous," Toyka says. "I'm just blessed to be here. I'm amazed. I look in the mirror like, 'Who is she? I know that face, but now it's just complete.'"

"Wow," Oprah says. "That's a wow-er."
