Makeovers That Matter Recipients | Veterans Day 2015
Makeovers That Matter teamed up with Paul Mitchell School making this Veteran's Day a day to remember for these ladies. They were treated to makeovers as they start the next phase of their lives. Their makeovers included free cuts, color and style, as well as, makeup tips and manicures all in an effort to help them feel more empowered and confident in the next chapter of their lives. Thank you MJ & Team.
Caroline, Makeovers That Matter Mindset Program Participant
"The mindfulness techniques have helped turn my pessimistic attitude around, and through meditation and exercise, I am feeling like a much healthier, better version of myself. Through the makeover and receiving fashion advice, I feel I will be ready to enter the job field, and not feel like my age will be a detriment. MJ and his fabulous team made us all feel as important as the veterans that we support, and to me that is such an amazing feeling.”

"Thank you to MJ for providing this classy, one-of-a-kind service and recognizing the service of women veterans.This unique and wonderful service that you offer not only reminds us that we're beautiful, but it also gave me a nice and quiet break. I walked away feeling revamped and reinvigorated to take on the world of job hunting again."

"After six years of military services, I have recently embarked on a new career in the entertainment industry. Makeovers that matter gave me a beautiful haircut and style, that I otherwise would never have been able to afford, which makes me look more relatable and most of all more hirable! It has increased my confidence tremendously and I am now ready to take LA by storm. Thanks for you and all you do!"

"My experience with MTM was nothing short of amazing. I learned of their work through military organizations while job searching, and what I found was a beautiful project lead by welcoming and caring individuals who helped me look and feel my best. Thank you MJ and team for getting it! For helping veterans like me through results instead of promises."

"I can’t even begin to express how amazing I felt after receiving my personal makeover through Makeovers that Matter! You and Dickie were not only kind and welcoming, but you both made me feel the most beautiful I have ever felt in my life. You did more than help me find a style that makes me feel attractive, you helped me find a look that expresses inner confidence and ease. As a veteran who has fairly recently returned to the Los Angeles area, I know how hard it can be to feel like a “civilian”, to feel accepted by your community, to feel confident enough to “fit in.”
"The MTM project allows us veterans entering the work force to boost our confidence. Personally, after yesterdays small makeover and viewing the before and after pictures I felt good about myself. For the most part I don't take pictures and I've let my self go from the time I began my family and school. Not to mention im not as thin as I use to be when I was active duty and that takes a toll on ones self-esteem. Ultimately, it's the individuals confidence along with the manner one presents his/her self that stands out to future employers.

"Mr. MJ, Good Afternoon, I sincerely appreciate the amazing job you have done; as well, as thank you for the opportunity you have allowed for me. You and your team have been spectacular and most of all humbling. As I am writing this, I am trying not to be so teary eyed (I do not want to mess up the wonderful make-up job). As a Marine Veteran and it's so dear to my heart how and what you have dedicated and volunteered yourselves in helping is female veterans reconnect with our female side, a side that we so often forget about. We female veterans stand alone very often because there are so few of us among the male veteran population that we are the forgotten ones.
