Where to Get a Free Makeover in Minneapolis-St. Paul


By Megan Torrini

No one will argue that moms want, and deserve, a feel-good experience and a fresh new look, and what better way to do this than with a free makeover. Working, taking care of the home, and everything that goes along with taking care of the children really takes its toll on a parent, especially mothers. Let's face it- moms just don't have the time or energy to take care of themselves as much as they'd want to. Women in the Twin Cities have several options when it comes to finding a free makeover.

The Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio
The legendary Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio has numerous locations throughout the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, and is dedicated to the philosophy of "Try Before You Buy". At the studio, you'll have the opportunity to visit with a Beauty Consultant who will educate you on skin care and color, and assist you in determining which shades are best for your skin tone. The consult is relaxed, giving you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the latest tips and techniques to help you look and feel great. The best thing about the Merle Norman Studio- there is no pressure and no obligation to buy.

Department Store Cosmetic Counters
Appointments can be made at the cosmetic counters located in any Twin Cities department store and surrounding areas. The beauty consultants at Clinique, Estee Lauder, LancĂ´me and others can discuss with you the shades that flatter your skin tone and how best to apply the products. By having a free makeover done at the cosmetic counter, you get to try out expensive, name brand products, and also get the scoop on the hottest trends.

Cosmetology Schools
Although still in training, students at local Minneapolis-St.Paul cosmetology schools are professional, ambitious and courteous. Simply contact your school of choice and ask if you can volunteer to have a makeover. This gives the students excellent training, and although they are not yet "experts", you may be pleasantly surprised with the results. The students will assist in determining, with you, which colors look best on you and which products to avoid. This makes for a great experience because the atmosphere is laid back, you do not feel pressured to buy a product. Because they must stay current in their training, the students are knowledgeable in the latest and hippest trends in beauty and fashion. The Scot Lewis School, Globe University Minnesota School of Business, The Regency Beauty Institute, The Minnesota School of Beauty and The Minnesota School of Cosmetology have campuses located throughout the Minneapolis-St. Paul and surrounding areas.

Everyone has beauty advice and everyone has beauty secrets. Your goal as a mom is to find your own beauty secret. When visiting with a cosmetic consultant, be sure to let them know you are a parent, with limited time on your hands. Stress to them that you want to look good, but it has to be quick, and it has to be tailored to you.
