Makeovers That Matter

Helping women look better on the outside
and feel stronger on the inside

Our Mission

Makeovers That Matter is dedicated to the empowerment of women returning from military service and the wives and widows of veterans who have served our nation. Our mission is to supply these women with the right tools to re-enter the workforce.

Our FREE service

Our FREE services include hair, make-up, fashion styling, and job interview training to boost confidence and help women put their best foot forward with the goal of securing a job that leads to a long-term career path.In return, Makeovers That Matter program recipients have the opportunity to “Pay It Forward”. They can contribute to the community by providing volunteer services, or write letters that accompany care packages to active military personnel stationed overseas. In giving to those who give of themselves, Makeovers That Matter continues the cycle of entrepreneurship and empowerment.

Our Plan

Our plan 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 stylists, makeup artists and mentors who donate their skills and time to women who commit to their community and themselves.  We work with agencies like Volunteers of America, US Vets, Salvation Army, New Direction, The Haven, Dress For Success, The Soilders Project and others.

We invite you to join us in helping to help these deserving women take their rightful place in society.

In Their Words

"Thank you for the kindness and caring you showed to me and the other veterans...I've never before experienced such warmth from people who are not relatives...I hope you will allow others to experience the benefit you allowed me."

More than a Makeover

Makeovers That Matter uses the good will philosophy of offering a hand up not a hand out approach. Makeover services are offered to women while they attend courses which give the participants an opportunity to earn their way and pay it forward.
