Woman cuts off long hair after receiving devastating news—now, she’s completely unrecognizable

While many women choose to undergo a makeover for a brand-new look, one lady had little choice but to have her hair cut short due to cancer. Nevertheless, the result of her drastic hair makeover was stunning.

Cancer patient Laura sought the help of expert stylist Jerome Lordet of Pierre Michel Salon in New York city before she embarked on her chemotherapy treatment.

“Laura came to see me to cut her hair before chemotherapy,” Lordet detailed in his YouTube video of Laura’s transformation.

Laura knew chemotherapy may cause hair loss on the scalp. Thus, to manage this traumatic hair loss process, she bravely took the drastic step to chop off her long locks.

When Laura stepped into the Pierre Michel Salon, her brown tresses tumbled about her pretty face. If not for being diagnosed with cancer, there would be no reason to cut her beautiful lengthy hair, which she spent years growing.

To begin the extreme hair makeover, Lordet first chopped off about a foot of her long tresses.

Then, he layered and trimmed her hair skillfully to give it a fabulous shape—short at the back, yet edging on the front.

Next, Lordet went on to style her super-short hair.

With the super-cute pixel haircut and ravishing makeup, Laura looked stunning, and almost unrecognizable. Her transformation was a success.

Not only did this short and easy hairstyle prepare her for the difficult times ahead, it also perfectly accentuated her entire features—her gorgeous big eyes, nose, and lips!

“Wow … this look made her more radiant and highlighted her facial features,” another commented. “The long hair was only covering up her natural beauty and those eyes are just amazing.”

Sadly, according to Lordet, just two weeks after the haircut, Laura lost all of her hair.

But fortunately, everything went well in the end. Three months ago, Laura commented on the video: “Thanks for sharing the video and checking in to see how I’m doing. That means so much! I’m so grateful I can say I’m happy and healthy and couldn’t be doing better!”
