About

Look Good Feel Better is a step-by-step makeover learning session led by cosmetology professionals using products donated by the cosmetic industry. Each two-hour, hands-on workshop includes a 12-step skin care and makeup lesson, nail care techniques, and professional advice on how to deal with hair loss using wigs, scarves, hats, hairpieces, and other accessories.

Patients at various stages of treatment receive personal attention and take home instruction booklets and complimentary cosmetic kits in shades that match their skin tones. Each year, more than 50,000 individuals participate in small groups of five to 10 that create a sense of support and community.

We are always looking for experienced beauty professionals such as hairstylists, aestheticians, makeup artists, and nail technicians to work as volunteers to help conduct group programs and/or one-on-one salon consultations. The commitment is three to five hours a month. A four-hour certification class and a biannual refresher course are also required.
