Simply Stunning Hair and Makeup and friends changed two women's lives earlier this month.
The beauty salon in Fort Saskatchewan wanted to give back to the area and be a positive change.
"I was just watching TV and there was politics, drama and so much bad going on in the world, so I looked over at my husband and said 'we got to do something. We should do a huge makeover with the salon and have somebody nominate someone who is deserving of it,'" said owner, Lisa Crawford.
Crawford's motivation for following through came from a quote on Instagram "Be the change you want to see in the world," from Gandhi.
264 people entered the contest, with Lori McMillan and Angela Keats winning the ultimate makeover.
"We were like, 'how are we going to pick just one person?' It was valued at over $3,000 for one person, so we all banded together and said 'lets pick two,'" added Crawford.
Both of the ladies got plenty more than just a haircut as many companies pitched in with house cleanings, dental services, flower bouquets and more.
Other area businesses that helped included Funky Petals, Cameron Dental, Queen of Clean, Platinum Skin and T. Bolinski Creative.
