I've nailed down all the specifics on one of our big contests for the Month of Mom, the celebration of all things mom in May. It's the makeover.
There's something for three lucky winners and there's something for everybody else too.
I'll preface all this by saying that I'm not launching the contest now. It's part of our Month of Mom, which includes fun contests all May and into June. Right now, we're giving away gift certificates to Dickey's Barbecue. Click here for details on that.
But the makeover contest will launch sometime this month. So stay tuned! I just wanted to announce all the details and share some discounts that Glam Lounge is offering to everybody this month!
Here are the details:
The Grand Prize
Our winner will win a makeover that includes hair and makeup from the talented women at Glam Lounge in Raleigh. The lucky winner will receive a makeover complete with hair and makeup and the royal treatment all around.
Style and self-image expert, Michele Little of OneChicMama.com, also will show our makeover winner how to get more mileage from what she already has. Michele will take existing items from the winner's closet and put them together in new ways to get maximum versatility and more bang for her buck. From there, Michele will accompany our makeover winner to local boutique, Dress, to discover how adding a few accessories can transform even the most basic look into something special.
And Dress, the women's designer boutique with a great selection of high-end clothing, bags and shoes in the Glenwood South area of Raleigh, will provide a $40 gift certificate for the winner.
Our second winner will win the GLAMhaircare RX, a custom package of GLAM, the hair care line developed by Glam Lounge, plus a private consult. That's a $100 value.
The Third Prize
And a third winner will take home the GLAM Mom Survival Kit, which includes a variety of hair care products in a cute bag. That's a $50 value.
And because everybody can't win, Glam Lounge has been kind enough to offer some great discounts for Go Ask Mom readers.
Glam Lounge includes Dawn Bender Carrington, owner and stylist. She is one of the top competing hair stylists in the country and has represented the United States in competitions in Paris, Milan and Moscow. She was featured on TLC's A Perfect Proposal where she delivered a fiancee makeover. She works with stylist Debra Ferro Goodyear, who has been admired for her work as a stylist for local bands during photo shoots and performances and is touted as a dexterous waxing expert. Both do hair and makeup.
Here's what they're offering Go Ask Mom readers during the entire month of May. All you need to do is ask for the WRAL Go Ask Mom treatment and save anywhere from $10 to $50 on a menu of special savings for moms.
There are two options on the menu and they sound like they could be fun moms' night outs or just a mom's afternoon out!
Have a special event? Want a break from the usual routine? Let someone else do the work! Glam Lounge will knock $10 off a glamUP* session. Sit back and relax while the Glam Lounge team styles your choice of hair or makeup for any special day in May for just $25 (usually $35). Also receive a 20 percent discount on any products purchased on the same day as a glamUP. Invite your girlfriends and plan a group primp session complete with GLAMourtinis. (You'll need a separate appointment if you're interested in cut, color or other services).
