Allure Salon & Spa teamed up with Unbridled Boutique and Kellie Steele Photography earlier this year to give five lucky ladies new looks. The results are sheerly remarkable.

These five women were nominated by their friends and family for makeovers because they never took time for themselves. Each woman had their hair, nails, makeup and wardrobe done, and they received a chair massage from Emily Toresdahl of Dinah’s Style.


Debbie Lawson

Debbie Lawson was nominated by her daughter because she always puts her kids and her grandkids first. Debbie works long hours and never makes personal time for herself.
