80 Women in Poverty Get Salon-Level Makeovers. Their Reactions To The Idea Of “Beauty” Will Amaze You.

Talk about perspective! These absolutely beautiful and gracious women put the true meanings of beauty and gratitude in their proper place. Earlier this summer, 80 women from across North Texas attended GLOW, an event hosted by Watermark Church in Dallas, TX. Over 50 salon professionals volunteered their time to give these woman an unforgettable day of pampering — hair, makeup, style, massage, health consulting — the whole nine yards!

All of the women in attendance came from various backgrounds of struggle, be it addiction, homelessness, abuse or prostitution. But, on this day, these things faded away, and were replaced instead with something truly beautiful: pure joy and sincere gratitude. You can’t fake these sentiments or try to will them into your life — they flow from a heart that is truly content, no matter what life throws your way.

Here are a few amazing before and after shots. Be sure to check out the video below also!
