Simonson’s Salon & Spa Fall Makeover  

In September Twin Cities Live partner Simonson’s Salon and Spa ran a Fall Makeover Contest. They were looking for one lucky lady ready to make a big change this season.  Stylists were hoping their winner was up for one of Fall’s hottest new hair colors called Broz, or brown golden rose. Lucky for them, the winner was all for it.  TCL reporter Kelli Hanson shows us how Karyn Spurling, an Elk River mom, got a total transformation.

Dad’s Day Off  

Father's day is only a few days away and just the moms out there, sometimes dads need a day of pampering too. Twin Cities Live reporter Kelli Hanson found a Saint Paul dad that wanted to make a huge change. She takes us to Ridgedale Center to give this dad, a day off.

It’s not often that you get a dad willing to do a makeover and his daughter is the stylist, but that’s exactly what happened at Simonson’s Salon and Spa and Maple Grove.

Mother/Daughter Mother’s Day Makeover  

There’s something about a mother-daughter bond. Just ask Deysta Gallardo and her daughter, Dominique. Deysta says it has always been just the two of them. Deysta raised her daughter as a single mom. The two of them are very close. So, when Deysta heard about TCL’s Mother’s Day Makeover contest with Ridgedale Center, she instantly sent a letter. To her surprise, they won. Deysta says she had to nominate her daughter because she works so hard as a nurse and the two of them could use a girls’ day out.

Mother's Day is just over a week away and we know a lot of moms that just want a few hours to themselves.
We recently gave Maple Grove mom, Abby Davis, some me time at Simonson’s Salon & Spa. She's a chaplain at a twin cities children’s hospital, has three children and is constantly running her kids to and from eight different sports. Twin Cities Live reporter Kelli Hanson tagged along for this Mother's Day Makeover.

I Love Lasik Winner  

A few months ago we teamed up with Joffe Medicenter for our I Love Lasik contest. We asked Twin Cities Live viewers why they wanted the gift of 20/20 vision.  Our producers read through hundreds of entries, but one caught our eye.
For years mom and wife Sharon Heinrich has had to put off Lasik because of health reasons. And as Twin Cities Live reporter shows us, this gift is long overdue.

Mom Makeover at Ridgedale Center  

Moms out there, imagine being with your kids, those cute little faces, 24-hours a day, every day. Not being away from your 14-month old ever and then getting a call from Twin Cities Live telling you you've won a makeover. It's what happenedd to Saint Paul mom, Tina Walls. Just a few days ago, reporter Kelli Hanson helped treat this mom of four to a day all to herself at Ridgedale Center. And what she got was way more than some peace and quiet.
