Free star makeovers are on offer for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Former Kettlethorpe High School pupil Caroline Monk set up her makeover project, Caroline’s Campaign, after she was diagnosed in 2004.

The 44-year-old found hair loss one of the most difficult things to deal with, and made it her mission to make women with breast cancer look and feel like a million dollars.

Makeover events have been held across the UK, including Leeds, and the next one will be at Room 97 hair salon in Wakefield, on Monday, October 21.

Eyebrow tatooists, make-up artists, nail technicians and hairdressers will all be on hand to give five successful nominees a transformation worth £1,000. They also get a new outfit to complete their new look.

Ms Monk said: “I want women to look in the mirror and look just as good, if not better, than before treatment.

“A well cut wig can make such a difference. Having eyelashes and eyebrows transforms you from looking ill to looking normal.

“Having been there myself I know all these things can make such a difference.”

Room 97’s owner Marcello Moccia offered to host the event after Ms Monk’s mum and sister, who are customers, were also diagnosed with breast cancer.

Nominations for friends or loved ones, should be emailed to caroline.monk@gmail.com

Please include the person’s name, reasons for nominating and your contact details. The closing date for nominations is Friday, September 27.
