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 O’Rourke.

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 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.
