In December I had the extreme pleasure of teaming up with Upgraded Living Magazine on style makeovers for a few of their most worthy readers in Chico. Upgraded Living is a local magazine that has become a top-notch publication offering a wealth of intriguing features, local events and hot tips for life in the northern California. I was honored to share in making these special people look and feel fabulous. Pardon the quality of the photos most of these were snapped on my iPhone.
Our first makeover day started with a little bubbly and interviews of the lucky ones chosen for the makeovers. Then we were off to Mecca Salon for fabulous make-up, spray tan, hair and fashion redo for Dana. Who doesn't love a day of pampering?
Claudia, the owner at Mecca, weaving her magic on Dana's tresses. She used balayage, a French coloring technique to create depth, dimension and shine.
Danielle working her makeup artistry on Dana.
Monique styled Dana and gave her tips on wrapping and layering bracelets.

Britni is another winning reader who scored a makeover. At Poison Apple Salon, Rocio worked her makeup magic, and Kim, owner, gave her a sassy new style. Kim explained that she was 'unlocking' the curl to make it a little undone and sexy.
