Makeovers That Matter
Helping women feel stronger on the inside
and look better on the outside
Makeovers That Matter is dedicated to the empowerment of women who have served our nation and the wives and caretakers of our military personnel. Our mission is to supply these women with the tools and training they need to re-enter the workforce.
Our FREE service
Our FREE services include The Mindset Program, our no-cost, career advancement training, as well as hair, make-up, and fashion styling. In return, participants have the opportunity to “Pay It Forward” by writing letters to active military personnel. These letters are included in care packages for troops stationed overseas.
Our program to help women re-enter the job force was founded by Michael John (“MJ”) Derricott as a labor of love. MJ’s selfless dedication has inspired hair stylists, makeup artists, and invaluable mentors to donate their skills and time to female veterans, wives, and caretakers. Makeovers That Matter works with agencies including Volunteers of America, US Vets, Salvation Army, New Direction, The Haven, Dress For Success, and The Soldiers Project.
