Every Wednesday, the 63-year-old Joan Irvine would get up at 05:30 in the morning, and spend four hours styling up her hair and preparing it for the whole week. She was famous for wearing her hair in the exact same way.
She was stuck in the 50s for almost 40 years. She had her signature beehive hairstyle, which she made with a few brushes, four kinds of rollers, a lot of hairspray and hairpins. In fact, she once cancelled a vacation, afraid she would set off the metal detectors at the airport.
She never let her hair down, except maybe for swimming.
Cindy and Christine, Joan’s frustrated daughters, begged the people from The Oprah Show for some help – a makeover for their mom.
They thought everything about their mother was outdated. So, they sent a video to The Oprah Show, and were thrilled when their mom was chosen for the makeover.
“We’re going to take an insurance policy out on her hair, God forbids something happens to the hair.” – Christine said.
After the makeover, the viewers at The Oprah Show were delighted with the makeover. Take a look at this video, and see Joan’s total transformation!
