Mom Was So Overly Sexy, She Needed A 'Makeunder' - Now She's Stunning

You've heard of a makeover? Some people need a makeunder. Some women work just a little too hard putting on make-up, tanning, doing up the hair and putting on the sexy, flamboyant clothes.

It's not always the most flattering look, but it's hard for them to understand that less is so much more. On Oprah, one woman's life was totally changed when she had a makeunder done, and went from trashy looking to very classy.

Dawn Williams was a mother of two, but she looked like she was trying way too hard to hang on to her own youth. The 44-year-old mother slopped on heavy make-up like a teenager trying to look old enough to get into a bar.

She squeezed herself into skimpy, revealing outfits that exposed much cleavage. She regularly went to the tanning beds, and when she couldn't get there she slathered herself with tanning lotion.

Worst of all was Williams' hair. She bleached her hair a brassy platinum and used harsh products and treatment on it so that the hair was just frazzled. She would then compensate with pounds and pounds of long hair extensions.

"There's always that little girl in me that feels like she's overweight," Williams told celebrity stylist Carson Kressley. "I thought, if I had the hair they're not going to look at me."

Kressley told Williams that getting rid of all the hair was going to be 'liberating'.

The mom was nervous and skeptical about changing her look. Sometimes we create an exterior for ourselves and we hide our real selves behind it, so taking off the clothing and make-up that you're comfortable with could be a little like taking off your armor. But the mom, who has teen kids, was willing to do it for them. She wanted them to be proud of her.

After a team of cosmetic and fashion specialists worked with Williams, she appeared on the Oprah show for her big reveal. Everyone was shocked, and the makeunder was a major success. Williams went from looking like a plastic Barbie doll to a real flesh-and-blood woman.

With her new look, Williams was elegant, stylish, and her inner beauty really shone through. Her kids rushed up to hug her and her friend cried at the sight of her.

She always felt exposed without her hair and tons of make-up and fake breasts. But she said now that it was all gone, she felt liberated just like Kressley said she would.

"You know what, it's really freeing. It really is," she said, noting when she got up she didn't have to spend a ton of time masking herself.

We always want to present ourselves to the world the way we want to be seen, and Williams worked long and hard to project what she thought was the ideal image of herself. Unfortunately, though, that image wasn’t genuine. It was a fake. With her new look, now people won’t get distracted when they look at her and can see her for who she really is.
