Who do YOU know?

“Makeover Mondays”, will center on giving back to six special women in the community. Each month’s recipients will be chosen based on the following criteria:

June 27:

 A professional woman who has fallen on hard times due to the present economic climate, and thus, may need some assistance with appearance enhancement before starting the interview process. Nomination deadline is Saturday June 18. Voting is from Sunday June 19 – Wednesday June 22.

July 25:

 A deserving woman who has been – for a significant period of time – selflessly advocating for a cause and/or volunteering her time. Nomination deadline is Saturday July 16. Voting is from Sunday July 17 – Wednesday July 20.

August 29:

 A Dress for Success female client who requires help with appearance enhancement as she heads out into the job field. Nomination deadline is Saturday. Only Dress for Success clients can be nominated for this month. Nomination deadline is Saturday August 20. Voting is from Sunday August 21 – Wednesday August 24.

September 26:

 A local woman in the community who is considered a hero in an extraordinary way. Nomination deadline is Saturday September 17. Voting is from Sunday September 18 – Wednesday September 21.

October 24:

 A woman who has survived cancer, or another life threatening illness, and is at the point in her recovery in which she is ready to feel a sense of rejuvenation of both her appearance and spirit. Nomination deadline is Saturday October 15. Voting is from Sunday October 16 – Wednesday October 19.

November 28:

 A woman who has been a selfless caregiver (taking care of a loved one who has fallen ill) and deserves renewal of both body and spirit. Nomination deadline is Saturday November 19. Voting is from Sunday November 20 – Wednesday November 23.

  • Nominations should be done in an altruistic fashion. So please nominate someone other than yourself and someone truly deserving.
  • You may nominate someone at any time beginning April 1, 2011 via email for any of the six months.
  • Candidates who are nominated should be open to a makeover experience.
  • Candidates must be available the entire day of the appropriate Monday they’re nominated and be able to meet for an hour prior to their “Makeover Monday”
  • Send email to MakeoverMondays@haircreationssalon.com (include nominating month in the subject heading. For example, if you know someone who is recovering from a life threatening illness you would write “October” in the subject heading).
  • Include:
    • Appropriate month in subject heading
    • Details of the nominee’s story
    • A current photo of the nominee
    • The nominee’s contact information (name, phone number, address, and email address)
    • Your contact information so that we can reach you if your nominee is chosen
