Beauty Night Society
About the organization
Beauty Night builds self-esteem and changes the lives of women and youth living in poverty through three streams of programming: wellness, life skills development, and makeovers. Beauty Night’s Life Makeover program creates a safe space where the participants are able to be themselves, make friends, and experience a healthy touch. Read more about Beauty Night Society.
