Moms' Biggest Mistakes: Jeanette
Jeanette and John have been married for 10 years. She says that when they were dating, she always looked her best. "I wore makeup all the time. I wore my contact lenses. I wore sexy clothes," she laughs
But Jeanette says that running a household with three active kids keeps her hopping, and she doesn't take time for herself. "Some mornings, I'm lucky if I have time to take a shower," she says. "My look consists of Disneyland sweatshirts, jeans, turtlenecks — whatever can be thrown on in five minutes. My hair is always a disaster. I don't know what to do with it. My personality is really fun and outgoing. I look in the mirror and I see a dowdy librarian."
John praises his wife for being a great mother. "The kids are always number one on her list. I'm number two and she's a distant number three," he says.
"I want my blonde bombshell back!" Jeanette says. "My biggest mistakes is that I've lost my inner blonde bombshell."
They take Jeanette out for her makeover. First up, she meets
Owner Bill Yamaguchi says, "Our philosophy here at Yamaguchi's is taking who you are on the inside and reflecting that on the outside through great haircuts, color and makeup."

"She looks fantastic!" John replies.
Addressing Jeanette, Dr. Phil says, "Do you like the way you look?"
