Congratulations! Your Makeover Is Confirmed.

Please complete this form at least 48 hours before you arrive.

What To Expect
The show begins at 9:00 a.m., and you are the star! Consider arriving early to give yourself a moment to relax in the outer lobby. A coffee shop across the atrium serves baked goods and grab-and-go items.
Park in the Riverplace Municipal Parking Ramp​
located at 30 2nd St SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414
The ramp travels downward three levels from A to C. Drive down to level C. 
Enter the building and follow the ramp-up. Restrooms will be on your left. Just past that, MAKEOVERGUY Appearance Studios appears on your left.
The backstage door is for employees only. 
Proceed further, and you will see the MAKEOVERGUY main entrance. 
This is a general idea of timing and what to expect. We may need to shift things around depending on the circumstances. 
9:00 The Show Begins
Curtains rise as you enter our 19th-century parlor. Designed by Christopher Hopkins, all fixtures and furnishings were carefully curated to create a sense of stepping back in time. We suggest turning off any electrical device to leave all cares outside and be in your moment. This is your day. 
Next, slip into your star dressing room to change into a customer gown. Please remove any upper body clothing and place any jewelry you are wearing in your handbag. We suggest bringing an "after" outfit to complete your "big reveal" and hanging it on the clothing rack. If you're wearing makeup, it will be removed at this time. 
9:15 The Analyses
You are welcomed into our backstage studios. Designed by Christopher, in homage to a mid-20th century backstage, it is here where your transformation will take place. Photographs will be taken from four sides, first with hair down, second with hair pulled up and back off your face. Your coloring will be quickly analyzed to determine your most flattering makeup and hair colors.  
10:00 Hair Color Application
A customized color recipe is created and applied. While your hair color processes, your brows are groomed if needed. 
Makeup Application/Lesson
Your makeup application will generally begin while you are processing. You may want to use your device to tape the process.
11:15 Order lunch
Place and order from DoorDash, UberEats, GrubHub, etc., if you did not bring your own.
12:00 Lunch
Enjoy your lunch at our dining table, and take a moment to express your intentions. How you want to carry your makeover into "real life."
12:30 Haircut and Style
Your hair, determined by your head shape and texture, will be created and styled. All products will be written down and explained for you to take home. You may want to tape the styling process for your use.  
Once your final look is finished, it's time to change into your "after" outfit with your accessories if you brought one. 
Please remain in the lobby as your portfolio is created. When finished, your artist will meet you in the lobby to discuss recommended products and answer any questions. 
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, It's time to settle up! *
Our greatest hope is that you are thrilled with your new look and will take it with you as you make your entrance into "the real world." Please write a review on Google
(Log into your Google account, and search for the business you want to review. Find the reviews area (next to the star rating in your search results, or under the establishment's name in the sidebar in Google search) and click on the blue font that says “WRITE A REVIEW.”)
A gratuity is at your discretion, typically between 15% and 20% of the makeover price. 
We will take 5% off the makeover price if you pay in cash.
