What would you say about your appearance prior to the Makeover?
My husband passed away suddenly five months before, so my appearance was not a priority. I had lost weight so my clothes didn’t fit. All my clothes were old, faded and flat colours. My hairstyle was dates, it was a bit of a dull colour with coloured streaks through it.

What was the BEST part of the Makeover?

My hair colour was completely changed and re-styled. I was given a fabulous dress and shoes. Meeting Trinny and Susannah was amazing. Going on stage at Westfield where my family and friends got to see the new ‘me’ was very exciting.

What was the WORST part of the Makeover?

There really wasn’t anything ‘bad’ about the whole experience.

What was the best advice Trinny & Susannah gave you?

Changing my hair colour completely was the best advice. I love my hair now. Being told I can and should wear shorter dresses that highlighted my figure, and that I’m no too old to do it. Also the blue dress was a different colour choice I would normally not wear but it worked well.

How has the Makeover changed your life?
I have bought more short blue cocktail dresses. I have many pairs of high heels. I coloured my hair even lighter (think Billy Idol). Everyone reacted positively to my makeover. It really boosted my spirits. Ironically my husband told me for years to make my hair blonder – he would have loved the makeover too.
