Women’s History Month Makeover 2012

First African American members of the Women's Army Corps

Update: We found our winner! Thanks to Robin Patchett, Gail Wood Case has been chosen. She will be coming in today for her Makeover (4/12/12). We can’t wait to treat her, and share the results with you.

I am collaborating with a new friend and fellow Grover Beach business owner, Sarah Crosby, from Grateful Threads Fashion Exchange. We are searching to treat one deserving woman, who otherwise couldn’t – or wouldn’t – to a new head-to-toe look! The launch is on International Women’s Day 2012!

Last year (2011) we celebrated IWD at Star Brows with a rally at the Arroyo Grande Bridge. We enjoyed our speaker, Marriage and Family Therapist Kathy Bornino’s wisdom and Qigong excercise. We felt connected to women all over the world, who were also meeting in solidarity with women world-wide, at bridges in their home towns.

This year we’re expanding our celebration! March is Women’s History Month in the U.S.A. The culmination of the festivities will be selecting a Makeover Winner!

So the search is on. Do you know someone who needs a little boost? Here’s what we’re planning for the lucky winner: First we’ll do Eyebrow Couture, then a Customized Facial, and finally Special Occasion Makeup! Then we’ll walk down the street to 957 West Grand to meet up with Sarah  from Grateful Threads. She’ll be putting together the perfect outfit: clothing, shoes, and accessories, to make the look complete!

We look forward to hearing some of the stories about women from our own community, who despite hardship are trying to make their lives better and use their talents and who could use a little glamour to cheer and encourage them.
