Saturday is Shauna's favorite day of the week, because that's the day she helps Momma at her beauty parlor, The New You. Shauna describes how she and Momma prepare for the day's customers – stacking clean towels, donning smocks, making fresh coffee. An engaging array of customers comes and goes, all of whom are as colorful as the cheerful salon. Though Shauna is a big help, Momma is the only one who gets to do the hair-styling. But when temperamental little Tiffany proves to be the toughest customer to please, it's Shauna who comes up with the perfect solution. And after the last customer leaves, this loving mother-daughter team work on their favorite customers of all — each other.
