Woman looks 10 years younger after makeover

Woman Looks 10 Years Younger After Makeover
"Good Morning America" gave third-grade teacher Glynette Ford a new look Wednesday as part of the show's "Lose 10 Years in 60 Minutes" series.

Ford got the makeover because she said people thought she was much older than she really is. She told "Good Morning America" she was once mistaken for her own mother's mother.

"Good Morning America"'s Sara Haines took Ford's photo out on the street before the makeover and asked people how old they thought the 45-year-old was. One of them thought she was 70!

And it did seem as though the show's time machine took 10 years off Ford's appearance. She showed off her new look on Facebook with a post that said a 'wonderful group of professionals can do miracles.'

The big reveal surprised a lot of people on Twitter! One commenter said she wanted to take a trip in the time machine herself, and another said of Ford, 'she looks fantastic.'

"Good Morning America" says it was inundated with requests for makeovers after publishing a story on ABC's website asking applicants to share why they deserved to lose 10 years in 60 minutes. The goal is to help people who are mistaken for being older than they really are.

She looks great and she did not look 70 before! They must have asked 10 year olds out on the street.

I'm thirty and ten year olds think I'm headed for the grave.

When they grow up they'll know better.

She's a very pretty woman, certainly does not look 70 (really, what is the matter with people?) and would look perfectly fine with a little makeup, her hair trimmed and styled, and a smile. The hair extensions are glamourous and look good in sort of a Beverly Hills Housewife manner, but I would think rather high-maintenance to have to deal with every day. I am 68 but am told I look a lot younger. Good genes and a healthy lifestyle help, but I wouldn't be caught dead even going out to the grocery store without mascara and lip gloss.

ME either and I'm 59.............mascara....lipstick....and cologne.

The ONLY time I don't even worry about THOSE......is when they're loading me into the back of an
AMBULANCE for a little ride to the hospital with a respiratory event. Those times you reaaaalllllly
just DON'T care what you look like......:))

Great makeover. She may have looked older in the beginning, but not 70 for crying out loud. Women have to juggle so may responsibilities these days we often put ourselves last. Lets take this as a little lesson to treat ourselves to regular beauty parlor visits. When we look better we feel better.

She looked like a 45 year old without makeup. They never smile in the before photos, and a smile can take off years. TV execs think we live under a rock.

Being mistaken for your grandmother (i.e. your mother's mother) would be erring by about 40+ years! That's hard to believe. Was the person who erroneously guessed her age at 70, actually a blind person?

i think this is the first one they did that was really a good job. most of the time they make them look like a clown with all the makeup and lipstick. this one is truly a natural look that looks great on her

Um she definitely does not look 70. Whoever said that is obviously an idiot. She looks beautiful now!

I don't think she looked like a senior at all, just a bit frumpy. Her makeover is just lovely.

IMO all she needed was some makeup. She didn't look old to me, just tired, and in the before photo where she's smiling she's really cute.
