And the winner is....

We've been talking about the Prom Makeover Contest for a few weeks now, and the Sacramento winner had her makeover today! Congratulations to Davis High School's own, Bianca Brown. After reading her heartfelt story, it was clear how deserving she was. (Bianca tearing up below)
A bad hair day comes and goes for most, but for Bianca Brown “bad hair days” are plentiful. Not so in the traditional way, but in a symbolic way that reflects the current situation of her family. Having to care for her ailing mother each day, Bianca wishes that she could stress over and think of simply having a bad hair day.
For the past 3 years, Bianca has been the rock that keeps her family together as her mother struggles with overcoming brain surgery. Bianca’s mother is unable to work, thus leaving very little extra money for the fun stuff and high school memories such as prom. As Bianca nears her prom, she worries that she will not have all that she needs including the help from her mom to give her the classy sewn in weave that she wants. Though not a professional stylist, Bianca’s mom always made sure her girls looked good. Because of her strength, Bianca deserves a day of fun and excitement that is just about her. I hope that you will consider her and make her prom memorable and special.
We were really excited to have chosen her as the winner of our contest. She had her hair styled by Sharie Lewis of DreamGirls Fine Hair Imports & Salon in Elk Grove, and her make up done by me! The day was full of fun, laughter, and at some moments, tears. Bianca was very thankful, and we were all humbled by the experience.
Here is a before and after shot of Bianca.

Thank you FIDM Fashion Club for involving me in such a wonderful gift!!
