I always enjoy trying new things in Chapin, and when George and Cliff from Ego Boost Salon talked about wanting to try something different for their salon’s one-year anniversary, my wheels started spinning to see what we could come up with. They talked about doing something like Project Runway… but I knew in January/February the weather could be damp and cold and not ideal for an outdoor occasion.
“What about doing some makeovers – like you see all over cable?” I asked. Well what was I thinking they asked. I hate to admit it but I can easily get swept up with “What Not To Wear” and “How do I Look?” shows. “What if we get people to nominate their friends, spouses, teachers or neighbors to come in for a day of beauty and pampering?” They liked it and so here we are!
Ego Boost is looking to find six good candidates that can come into their salon on Saturday, February 2, and these ladies will receive a beauty makeover designed to give them the boost of confidence they may need for a new year. The Ego Boost stylists and support team will work with each person to give a new cut and hairstyle, provide a full make-up consultation and have their nails done, too. The team will take Before and After photos of each makeover contestant, and Chapin area residents can vote online via Facebook or in person at the salon (504 B Old Lexington Hwy.) The winner will receive a Valentine’s Delight package that will include an evening out on the town as well as a variety of beauty products and services. Not bad, eh? Accept Chat Gal is ineligible – wahhh!
But I’m sure you may know someone who deserves to be perked up with a little makeover, don’t you? All that’s needed is the person’s name and a contact number for George can call her if she’s one of the selected ladies, and a brief description (200 words or less please!) of why this special person should be selected. Maybe she gives so much time as a mom that she doesn’t take the time to take care of herself? Maybe she’s had a rough patch with work or personal relationships and needs a new look to move to a new chapter in life? Or maybe that 1980s vintage hair cut just ain’t cutting it anymore! Be creative, be fun and be nominating some folks so Ego Boost can showcase their talents and make some deserving people feel great about themselves!
Questions? Call George or Cliff at 941-7115 for more details on the contests, specials that will be available to visitors to the salon on February 2 and the Valentine’s Grand Prize package.
