Makeover Guest Stylist Michael O'Rourke Donates Hair Styles
|Ron Paul Salon,
Virginia Beach, VA, and Sexy Hair Concepts team up to support
cancer research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
By Perriann Rodriguez
With the popularity of makeovers these days, the Style for a Cure Makeover
event by Ron Paul Salon and Sexy Hair Concepts, founded by
Michael O'Rourke was a huge success. Anyone who made a donation
to the hospital during the month-long event this summer had the
opportunity to win one of three makeovers by ABC “Extreme
Makeover’s” guest stylist and “Stylist of the Year” Michael
Style for a Cure is a fundraising effort that allows stylists to use their
professional talents to raise money for the hospital. Ron Paul
Salon and Sexy Hair Concepts are the first to participate in the
Style for a Cure nationally.
All proceeds went to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. At St. Jude, children who
meet medical requirements are treated without regard to a
family’s ability to pay. Families never pay for treatments that
are not covered by insurance and families without insurance are
never asked to pay. So when you donate to St. Jude (see
www.stjude.org) you are directly helping children get treatment
for catastrophic childhood diseases.
The three makeover winners received fabulous makeovers that enhanced their
facial features and style. See photos online at
www.hairresources.com. Michael O’Rourke, the makeover master,
first studies the person to decide what drastic measures can be
made for improvement. He looks at the most enhancing features
and the personality traits of the person. Then he tries to go
after these features by exaggerating and/or enhancing them to
bring out the best in the person.
