Services:  Look Good...Feel Better helps to restore the emotional balance of cancer patients who may have experienced the physical changes that can occur as a result of cancer treatments. Professional cosmetologists and hair stylists
offer advice and tips for coping with hair loss and skin changes.
Volunteer beauty professionals lead small groups, usually consisting of 6 to 10 women, through practical, hands-on experience. Women learn about makeup techniques, skincare, nail care, and options related to hair loss such as wigs, turbans, and scarves. Each group program participant receives a free kit of cosmetics for use during and after the workshop. For patients who are unable to attend a group workshop, a free, one-time, individual salon consultation with a volunteer cosmetologist may be available in their area. These trained beauty experts help each patient address her specific skin, hair, and related appearance needs.
Fees: None.
