Local Salon Gives Free Makeovers to Homeless Women

Jan 28, 2015 by Claire (Oh Good Staff)


Vanessa Howard, owner of Giving Hands Beauty Salon in Tampa, has only been in business for a year and has been giving back to her community that helped her get here.

In the past Vanessa was once homeless while raising 3 daughters, and having first-hand experience of how difficult that life is, now she opens her doors to local homeless women for a free makeover. Once a month the Giving Hands Beauty Salon opens its doors hosting a spiritual spa day, to help empower and inspire these local homeless women.


With the help from her daughters and some local volunteers, Vanessa, has provided free manicures to over 50 women. The makeover and self-confidence boost has helped many of these homeless find employment soon after.
