Being a mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world. Even Oprah agrees, and when Oprah agrees, you know it’s true! Being a mom requires acts of selflessness and sacrifice. Most moms become so engrossed in making sure the kids have everything they need that they forget about their own personal needs. Some moms dress way too young for their age or way too old. (We’re not sure what’s worse.) Even if your mama’s quite stylish, it’s nice to spend some quality time with her for a gal’s only, makeover day out.
Let TBF walk you through revamping your mom’s style without making her feel like she’s on an episode of What Not To Wear.
Most women are so used to their current style that they can become reluctant to accept change. We suggest inviting your mama out for a mother/daughter day. Tell her you have been dying for a new look and thought it would be a great idea if you both got new looks together.
Give Your Mother a Makeover!

A new cut or even a much needed trim can transform your mom’s look. If she has short hair, see if she would be interested in trying a sassy short do like a pixie cut a la Jamie Lee Curtis or a longer spiked style like Halle Berry. For African American women, going natural has become very popular. So, if your mom has been wanting to embrace her natural kinks and curls, then have her take some cues from Oscar-nominated actress Viola Davis, who recently unveiled her natural locks.

If she has shoulder length hair, a bob is an easy style that she could wear sleek during the day like Heidi Klum and glam at night by adding ringlet curls like Michelle Pfeiffer.
