MOORE, Oklahoma -

As the victims of the Moore tornado slowly begin the rebuilding process, life is still nothing but normal. But one woman and a team of stylists, decided to change that in the only way they knew how: to do hair.

It's called Project Beauty for Moore, the brain child of Diane Brothers, a native Oklahoman, who now owns Diane & Co. Salon and Spa in Dallas. Through donations and the power of social media, she and other stylists are giving the Moore tornado victims a day to not feel like a victim.

"It's probably the most important and rewarding thing I've ever done in my life," said Brothers.

On Sunday, tornado victims packed the LE Salon in Moore to receive free services. Amy Sharp and her three daughters all received haircuts and color. On May 20, she checked her three daughters out of Plaza Towers Elementary School just before the Ef-5 tornado destroyed it. They took shelter in the Moore Medical Center, receiving minor injuries. They also lost their home.

"What we found was awful," remembers Sharp. "Our house was still standing, the front half was still standing and the back half was pretty much gone. We're all dealing with nightmares."

Those nightmare images, though, have compelled complete strangers, like Brothers, to step up and help.

"You see it on TV and it is not the same thing we saw over there," said Brothers. "What we saw over there was the most horrible thing I've ever seen in my whole life, and you know these people lost everything."

And that is why Brothers spearheaded the project, to give the victims a break from their tragedies.

"Even if they just look in the mirror and saw okay this is normal, I know what this is, and they look like themselves and they feel pretty, it gives them that hope to put one foot in front of the other and continue," said Brothers.

Feeling the stress of the world around her, Sharp said this was exactly what she and her girls needed.

"It's just nice to have that sense of normalcy again," she said. "[My daughters] like getting their hair done and they got their nails done and it's just really nice."

Ron Reynolds, owner of Beauty Cartel donated all the color, shampoo and styling aids. State Beauty Supply also donated supplies for the makeovers.

The shop will be open again Monday, June 17 for the Moore tornado victims from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and then again Sunday and Monday, June 23 and 24. Walk-ins are welcome.
