BETHESDA, Md. (WUSA) -- Military moms at Bethesda Naval got an early Mother's Day gift Friday: a free makeover.

"I am a single mom of five amazing daughters," said HM1 Julie Marie Bishop.

Bishop has five girls, she's been in the Navy for nineteen years, and she's a week away from getting her master's in social work.

"It's a pretty full life," admitted Bishop.

So Friday, she took a time out to get a free makeover for Mother's Day.

"I need to keep it professional. It needs to be easy to do and quick to do in the morning when you're trying to run out the door and get to work on time," said Bishop.

The makeovers are compliments of Chevrolet and Jeannie "Kitty of the City" Jones.

"At the end of the day, if a woman feels good, she is good," said Jones. "This is the least that we could do: make them over, make them feel good for all the work that they do."

About twenty service women took advantage of the makeovers, including 20-year-old Yesenia Morales who lost her vision while serving in Afghanistan last January.
"The doctors believe I have a disease that's causing blindness," said Morales. "They can't explain the cause and there's no cure for it. So they really don't know what's going on."

Post makeover, Morales said she felt beautiful. She couldn't see it, but her mom could.

"She looks beautiful, likes always, from the star that she was born," said Maria Morales. "It's the only Mother's Day gift I need."
