An Amish woman doffed her bonnet and was unrecognizable after dramatic hair makeover

Sarah is a schoolteacher who belongs to the Amish community in Jamesport. The community follows strict codes that forbid the use of modern technology and elaborate clothing.

Amish clothing has no printed patterns, and the women’s dresses, are all plain colored. The rules require that only solid colors can be used, usually black, blue, burgundy, brown, purple, or green.

Like all other Amish women, Sarah dresses plainly and hides her hair underneath a small white bonnet for modesty, as dictated by her faith.

But celebrity stylist Theodore Leaf surprised her by offering her a hair makeover. This was permitted because Sarah is enjoying her rumspringa.

It's a rite of passage during which Amish teenagers experience the outside world, and then decide if they wish to continue in the Amish community.

Leaf traveled to the small town in Pennsylvania determined to give her a brand new hairstyle as part of her amazing makeover.

He and his team walked in on an unsuspecting Sarah with all the cameras and paraphernalia and gave her a fright. Leaf told her he was going to style and color her hair "because blondes have more fun."

He layered her hair to give movement to her tresses but kept her hair long for a glamour girl look.

They are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology.

The Amish reject labor-saving technologies since they consider work holy. They believe modern innovations like electricity might spark a competition for status goods, and that photographs might cultivate personal vanity.

They reject pride, arrogance, haughtiness, and vanity;  and place a high value on humility, calmness, and composure.
