Meta House Professional Looks Salon Day
Learning to Look and Feel Their Professional Best
From Meta House Career Specialist, Dawn Baldwin:
The Meta House Career Specialist, Dawn Baldwin, teamed up with Bottomless Closet’s Jeri Kavenaugh, Regency Beauty Institute’s Nancy L. Belau, and Robyn Vining Photographers with Help Portrait Milwaukee in January to provide a Professional Looks Salon Day for Meta House clients who are transitioning into the career world. Some are returning to the career world, others are starting from scratch in their job readiness. Many of the clients involved have never had the opportunity to walk into a salon. It was an emotional day filled with excitement and tears. All were grateful to have a day that they could relax and feel good about themselves.
Throughout the month of January, Meta House clients who are working on career transitions were given information about interviewing and dressing for success. Clients were transported to Bottomless Closet, where they were allowed to shop for two full outfits that allow them to be career-ready. Jeri Kavenaugh, who manages the Bottomless Closet, gave a workshop to the clients on how to pick out interview appropriate clothing.
On January 27, Regency Beauty Institute, with the help of Nancy L. Belau, allowed those clients to come in for career make-overs. Robyn Vining Photography set up at the salon to take headshots and glamour photos of the women after their make-overs. Clients wore their new career clothing from the Bottomless Closet. Jersey Mikes, which is stationed next door to Regency Beauty Institute in Greenfield, provided free lunches for the event.
Meta House clients want to thank these institutions for helping them and giving them such an amazing experience. Photos from this day will be used to create professional social media accounts and resumes with the clients.
