Deadline nears for makeover nominations

Don't delay another minute. It's time to nominate someone deserving for the sixth annual Wichita Eagle Makeover Contest.

The deadline, which is June 5, will be here before you know it. This year judges are going to select three women and a couple to receive head-to-toe makeovers.

Participating retailers are Dillard's, Dress Barn, Lucinda's and Wild at Heart. Specs will donate two pairs of eyeglasses. Participating salons are Planet Hair, Salon Knotty and Charisma.

How to enter or nominate someone for a free makeover:

* Send a photo taken no longer than six months ago, one you don't need returned. (You may e-mail a photo, but the judges prefer a color printed photo.)

* Include the name, age, occupation and phone numbers for the nominated person.

* Tell us briefly why you or the nominee want (or need) a makeover.

Those chosen to receive a makeover must:

* Agree to be available for appointments at the salons and retailers. (They will work with your schedule.)

* Agree to be featured in The Wichita Eagle.

* Attend the luncheon June 25. (The winners will be our guests for the luncheon.)

* Be available June 7 or 8 for a "before" photograph at The Wichita Eagle, 825 E. Douglas.

All entries must be submitted by 5 p.m. June 3. Judges will choose the winners on June 6, and I will contact them that afternoon.
