And you think you've got problems  
Ah, fashion makeovers. We all like them, especially when some hideous creature removes her glasses and shakes her hair loose to reveal that she is in fact a ravishing beauty. Slap on a posh frock and her life is instantly transformed for the better. It's the stuff of Disney endings.

Of course, we like makeovers that little bit better when they go a bit wonky and the victim can only mutter, "it's... certainly a different look for me" through pursed lips.

Take This Morning for example. They've done more style rejiggings than Fern Britton's had those Rivetta snacks and with a hairdresser of Charles Worthington's calibre, nothing could possibly go wrong, could it?

Meet Donna.

"Donna has long brown hair with died (sic) blonde colour underneath, a style she’s kept for the last five years. She's desperate for a new do as she's getting married next month would love a new look!"

Oh dear. You could hear a collective dropping of jaws on the studio floor when Donna's wedding day look was unveiled. Is that a solitary tear streaming from her right eye, or did they hire an incompetent make-up artist too?

"Of course, you don't have to have it exactly like that," stuttered Fern hastily before ushering on an ad break.

Poor Donna, the biggest day of her life and she looks like a traumatised poodle at an Iron Maiden concert.

Nothing short of a hurricane would fix that hair!

Holy Crap!

That's pretty sad.

The poor dear didn't have much to work with from the beginning, but damn, that's just mean.

The look on her face says it all really, doesn't it?

"... and if your marriage doesn't work out, you could always work *it* behind King's Cross with this look!.."

So THAT'S where the term "bedhead" came from!
