When I first became Mississippi''s "makeover guy" some years ago through my weekly newspaper column, in a way I found my calling for the first time. Oh, I had worked with beautiful women in salons for a long time before and have been lucky to do so since, but the notion of helping a woman realize her fullest potential, helping her to feel as beautiful as she already is, now that''s a real energizer for me!
I have had the distinct privilege to "make over" women of all ages, from school teachers to doctors and carpool moms to CEOs. Many of those women have been photographed in newspapers and magazines across the state, demonstrating for all to see the "before" and "after" of new hair, makeup, and sometimes even wardrobe.
I''m excited to be starting a new monthly makeover series on WDBD, FOX 40 in Jackson, and I invite you to nominate your friends, mothers, sisters, wives, or even yourself. We hope to select women who give so much of themselves to others or who are overcoming adversity with grace, folks who truly deserve some special treatment.
For every woman who simply wants to shine with your most radiance, here are my makeover rules:
Whether you are ready for a makeover or simply want to let your beauty shine through as it already is, keep these simple rules in mind for a look that is fabulous and, most important, uniquely your own.
