It's no secret that a hair transformation — by cut or colour — can help boost your confidence.
For Holly, a client of Sara Pestella, a hairstylist at Avant Garde Salon in Destin, Florida, a hair upgrade couldn't come at a better time. According to Pestella, the bride-to-be was afraid to cut her waist-length two-tone hair after being told by her father that women could only be beautiful with long hair. Ready to dispel this distorted belief, Holly decided that now was the time to cut her lengths and in doing so, shed all of the negativity.
Holly, gave Jeremy Hartfield (Pestella's colleague) the honours of the chop. Hartfield snipped away her brassy blonde ends, leaving just the brown section which fell right past her chin. Holly said goodbye to two feet of hair that day. Below, scroll through to the second slide to see the dramatic cut:
The makeover that brought us home the trophy! We had so much fun with this transformation.

Next, Pestella was ready for colour. Opting for a shimmering golden blonde, Pestella went back in after the initial process and darkened Holly's roots to add dimension. "No kidding, this transformation was indeed overnight," Pestella told Modern Salon. "Holly feels beautiful in her own skin [now]."
That's what it's really all about, right?
