Makeover Magic by Michelle Libby

Windham Primary School noon monitor Maggie Libby was eager for a change. She hadn’t had her hair cut in two years and she’d never colored it. When she arrived at Chic Boutique, 889 Roosevelt Trail, those things weren’t on her mind. She wanted to donate her hair in honor of Deliah, a 2-year-old daughter of Windham Primary School physical education teacher Stacey Turkington, who is battling Leukemia. 

“She’s been fighting for at least over a year,” Libby said. The hair was donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths program to be made into wigs for people fighting cancer.

Libby only had one request for her new look. She wanted something with easy maintenance. “I absolutely love it. I was open to anything,” she said.    

Owner of Chic Boutique Barbie Smart-Damen added more intense copper and gold tones to play up Libby’s already beautiful auburn hair. She then took about 12-inches off the length so she could donate it and gave her a modern look with a graduated bob. To finish off the look she did a light makeup application.

The first day back at Windham Primary School, saw rave reviews for the new sleek look. “They all loved it too,” she said of the students. “One 5-year-old looked at me so distraught. I had to tell him ‘it’s still Miss Maggie, just with little hair.”

At home, her husband Rob and two daughters, Abbi and Julia loved it. The girls wanted to play with it, she said. 

Libby wants to keep up with the look definitely through the summer. “It looks just as good today s it did from the salon,” she added.
