A Baltimore hairstylist is giving back this holiday season by giving a cancer survivor a free makeover.

Consquilla Carey, owner of Affordable Styles hair salon and CC beauty salon, gave Darnetta Simpson the Christmas present of her life.

Carey knows that one of the best gifts to give is to make someone feel beautiful. She does this every day at her hair salon and at her beauty school, but this holiday season she wanted to give this special gift to someone in need.

“I’ve had several clients who suffer from hair loss and hair issues due to cancer treatment. So since the holidays are approaching, a lot of people want to do something different, and I’ve had several people say, ‘I want to have a wig, but I can’t afford it right now,'” Carey said.

Simpson is one of those people who wanted a wig but couldn’t afford it. She battled breast cancer twice and underwent chemotherapy and surgeries. Now she is cancer free, but her hair is still fine.

“It sometimes makes it difficult to get a certain hairstyle that I wanted to get but couldn’t because of my situation with my hair,” Simpson said. “It makes you feel a bit depressed and then you worry about how you look, how you look, and it affects you mentally sometimes.”

Carey wants to change that. On Wednesday, she gave Simpson a complete makeover with a custom wig and makeup by makeup artist Shantel Pinnock. The custom wig was made by Carey and one of her beauty school students, all to make Simpson feel beautiful.

“It’s gratifying to know that I can touch someone else’s life and that God has put me in a position where I can afford to do that. I’m honored,” Carey said.

The transformation made Simpson cry to receive such a priceless gift, making her feel beautiful.

“With everything I’ve been through with surviving cancer, life is changing, I feel so good. Sometimes you think of giving gifts, but this one is better than a gift. That’s something that I will cherish and think about every time I put the wig on,” Simpson said.

Carey also enjoys giving back through scholarships. She’s given 10 scholarships since her beauty school opened in February in Richmond, Va., and she hopes to give more. For more information, visit the institute’s website.
