She yelled with joy when she got picked by Jill Martin out of the many people, both young and young at heart, who were in attendance at that day’s show.

Her friends and even the other participants were so happy about her fate—Acker was just in the vicinity because she wanted to cheer for her school’s basketball team!

According to her, she hadn’t cut her hair since she was 14!

It was also revealed that wearing makeup wasn’t her thing either—in all, she felt confident about going for a natural look most of the time. Even so, she was open to whatever the hosts had in store for her.

In the video, she’s wearing her school uniform just like the other kids: a combination of plain gray shirts, a blue jacket and a white baseball cap.

With a pair of standard blue jeans and a pair of white sneakers, her look is complete. After taking it all in, the makeover wizards got to work!
