Hi! My name is Ann and I have been a part of Hello Gorgeous! for just under a year.
Hello Gorgeous! provides red-carpet experiences for woman battling all cancers through full spa, ambush-style makeovers in one of our 36’ mobile day spas or by one of our partnering affiliate salons across the United States, at no cost to our gorgeous women. I love Hello Gorgeous for many reasons, but the top reason is seeing the transformation of a woman with cancer that takes place during a makeover.
There is nothing more rewarding than watching one of these beautiful women that, through their treatment, are experiencing all sorts of emotions like depression, anger, sadness, or just plain feeling overwhelmed by it all, get a little “break” in their life through a visit from Hello Gorgeous!. Every step of the makeover process peels away a little of the stress that a woman goes through while fighting her cancer. To watch her relax, and smile, and laugh, and feel more vibrant and confidant than she has felt in a long time is so emotionally rewarding to watch!
My role as an executive team member at Hello Gorgeous! is, first and foremost, to fill any needs for the organization that I am capable of doing. With that being said, I am a licensed practicing barber, so I am able to help the HG! team when we perform makeovers. I am also trained by Hello Gorgeous! to help certify salons that apply for our Salon Affiliate program. I am excited to see all of the places I might travel to and all the passionate salon owners I might meet on this part of my journey with Hello Gorgeous!
Lastly, I have a skill and a passion for social media. For some reason, it fascinates me. So, I am currently taking ongoing education to expand my knowledge in this area, so I can be of more help in growing Hello Gorgeous! and its social presence. The more we grow, the more women we can help. It is our passion at Hello Gorgeous to help restore the beauty that cancer steals to as many women as we possibly can.
