MOORE, OK -- From losing everything in a matter of minutes to figuring out where your next meal is coming from. Where are you going to sleep? What are you going to do with all that debris? The last thing the women of Moore are thinking about is their next visit to the hair salon.

"Do I have a million dollars to donate? Nope," said Diane Brothers of Diane and Company Salon. "And I thought well, I could do hair."

Diane Brothers watched as her hometown was destroyed from Dallas and Project Beauty was born that night. It all started when a friend, also a teacher at Plaza Towers, started gathering friends for makeovers. Through word of mouth, Project Beauty grew into an eleven hour day of beauty with clients constantly moving in and out of her chair.

"The pampering. The touch. That`s one thing that hairdressers do," said Brothers. "We are allowed to touch people and that creates basically a different level to talk to someone. Because you would never go up to someone and touch their head, but once you touch somebody`s head they trust you."

Sheila Lowell lost her home on May 20th. She can't remember the last time she had "me" time.

"A few minutes to yourself," said Lowell. "A few minutes to not have to think about it."

For the women who made the three hour trip, she has nothing but gratitude.

"It`s amazing that these people are willing to donate their time and products just to give us a normal, because we don`t have normal anymore," said Lowell.

Now Sheila gets to look in the mirror and see that at least one thing is back to normal.
