Haircut Makeovers Part 1
Her hard work and dedication paid off! She received the 2007 Milken Educator Award for furthering excellence in education! When Oprah Show producers saw Daphne's story on the front page of the Chicago Sun-Times they invited her to Harpo Studios for a makeover from Rita Hazan! Rita gives Daphne a vibrant new red color and trims her hair into a short, sophisticated style.
Watch as Daphne receives her award!
In addition to her professional success, Daphne has also attained a major personal achievement—she lost 200 pounds and has kept off the weight for five years. "That's a real, real accomplishment in life," Oprah says. "You look great!"
After Ken Paves gets a hold of Angela, she looks like a whole new person! He transforms her dark tresses to light red and adds length with hair extensions. "I feel wonderful. I feel like a new person," Angela says. "I love it!"
Harry has an entirely different vision for Janice's hair. "She has this amazing pale skin, these unbelievable eyes that just needed to be featured somehow," he says. "Her eyebrows were so blonde, and I just was seeing something completely different on her."
Harry creates a very sexy look for Janice, giving her a gorgeous, straight, dark red mane. When Janice reveals her look on The Oprah Show, her husband is very happy! "She looks absolutely beautiful," he says.
Stylist Ted Gibson doesn't hesitate to make a big change—he gives her a sleek, straight, shoulder-length 'do. "I can't believe how different I look. I feel like a different person," Virginia says. "I think all the time I was kind of hiding behind my hair, and now it's pretty hair. I don't want to hide behind it."
Colorist Rita Hazan to the rescue. She makes Rolanda look years younger by turning her drab gray into a rich brunette. She even adds some blonde highlights!
Eric's mom, Gail, and girlfriend, Kim, haven't seen the results of his makeover—until now! When Kim sees her boyfriend's new clean-cut look, she is thrilled. "I can feel some great sex coming," Oprah jokes.
Eric admits that a combination of laziness and a desire for a new style kept him from getting it cut. All that hair made for a very hot summer—but now he's all cooled off! "Walking around yesterday, my face felt like it had an air conditioner on it constantly."
Celebrity hairstylist Kimberly Kimble helps Jaime make a dramatic change by cutting off more than a foot of hair! Her new look is a short, chic style with rich color and highlights. "I look in the mirror [and say], 'Is that me?'" she says.
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."
Harry says he trimmed off about a foot and a half from Chevis's hair, giving her an adorable, stylish, chin-length cut. "Chevis was—wow—definitely one of the most exciting haircuts we did in the whole experience," Harry says.
Chevis says she feels like a whole new person. To keep her new look a surprise from her husband she wears a shower cap home from the salon. His reaction after the big reveal? "Wow!"
"I feel like a million bucks," Chevis says.
Ken shortens Megan's hair to chin-length, giving her a sassy, wavy style. Megan says it's easy for her to style herself, and it also looks cute straight! "It's amazing," Megan says. "I love it."
Ted gives Shella a stylish, short look. "Wow! Sassy fun," Oprah says. "How cute!"
Shella says she loves her new style. "You know, I always felt pretty before, but now I feel fabulous."
"What I think was aging Terri was that she had these dark roots and then it was so short," Kimberly says.
When Kimberly is finished, Terri looks like a supermodel! Her richly colored hair is much longer thanks to hair extensions. "You look 25!" Oprah says.
Ted decides to give Janet a vibrant new look with a stylish, straight cut in a daring shade of bright red. "It's great," Janet says. "I feel sophisticated and chic."
"And you look it, too," Oprah says.
Colorist Rita Hazan says Carrie's hair color could be the culprit. "The mistake women make that ages them is that they bleach out their hair too much," she says.
Rita tones down Carrie's blonde locks by giving her a slightly darker shade of blonde. She also adds some depth with highlights. "We took 10 years off Carrie's looks by giving her a knockout color," she says.
Carrie says she loves her new look. "It looks like she put streaks of sunshine in your hair!" Oprah says. "It looks so sunshiney."
Ken softens Connie's look by straightening her hair and giving it a shorter, angled cut. "I feel amazing," she says. "It's incredible!"
"Fresh, so fresh. You look great," Oprah says.
"You just start letting it grow and kind of just throw it back in a braid and a ponytail, and it's easy to take care of," she says.
Carol says she's ready to let go of the past—and Harry Josh knows just what to do. "My first thoughts on Carol when I saw her is she got stuck in a rut, which a lot of women across the country do," he says. "We can take 20 years off of her with that hair, not to mention more than 20 inches."
Carol's new shoulder-length cut gives her a fresh new look. "I love it. I really love it," she says. "It's just really easy to take care of, and it just makes me feel younger, too."
