I feel like [GlamourGals] benefits the seniors and teens equally. Sometimes the seniors don’t have families that come to visit - but it makes us feel better, because I get to feel like I am helping. Everybody gets something out of it.
— Kristal, GG volunteer in Brooklyn

98% reported feeling better about themselves after attending a GlamourGals makeover.

100% of senior home surveyed reported a noticible increase in the mood of residents after a glamourgals makeover.

Before GG, I was shy and hesitant, but I have grown to become more
vocal and confident. Being a GG leader has taught me to be more mature, patient,
compassionate, and most importantly, put myself in other’s shoes to understand
every individual better.
— Carey, Queens Volunteer

Host a MegaMakeover

One of the best ways for adults to support our program is to host a MegaMakeover, a one-time makeover event designed to spread awareness of the GlamourGals program. The goal of each MegaMakeover is to inspire students to start chapters at their high schools or colleges. 

At a MegaMakeover, students have the opportunity to participate in GlamourGals service and will begin to form the intergenerational connections that will encourage them to keep visiting your facility as a registered GlamourGals chapter.

Register your senior home

If you are interested in having a GlamourGals chapter visit your facility, you can register your senior home in our database. Local chapters will be able to find your facility when they search for a senior home to visit.

GlamourGals chapters are groups of teen volunteers in high school or college. They offer the seniors the following options:

  • Manicures (nail files, hand lotion, and/or nail polish).
  • Makeovers (foundation, lipstick, and/or blush).
  • Facials (cleanser and/or lotion).

Volunteers will always ask each senior what elements of the makeover they would like. All seniors are welcome to attend a makeover and connect with volunteers. GlamourGals provides chapters with disposable tools to ensure the makeup used is sanitary. Volunteers NEVER use any sharp tools, apply eye makeup, or do hair.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
