Rays of Sunshine grant’s teen’s wish to have a professional makeover with the help of the Daily Star, River Island and celeb hair stylist Lou Teasdale

16 year old Amber, who is currently living with Cystic Fibrosis, had her greatest wish granted to have a professional makeover thanks to Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity. To fulfil the teen’s wish Rays of Sunshine enlisted the help of celebrity hair stylist, Lou Teasdale, and Bleach Salon, fashion retailers, River Island, and the Daily Star to give her the full VIP treatment.

First port of call was to fulfill her dream of having very on-trend ‘Mermaid’ coloured hair. To make this become a reality, Rays of Sunshine organised for Amber to visit hair stylist to the stars (including One Direction), Lou Teasdale’s Bleach Salon in Dalston, London. During which, she had her hair coloured pink, purple and blue, matching her vision.

Next stop, to create Amber’s brand new head-to-toe look, was at River Island for exclusive use of the Style Studio. The teen had her very own stylist, who helped her pick out a host of stylish and fashionable outfits, ready for her professional photo shoot.

To top off an already jam-packed VIP two days, Amber was picked up by her very own Rays of Sunshine Limo and taken to the Daily Star studio for her very own professional photoshoot. View photos from the day below:
