USO | P&G Beauty and Grooming Lounge

P&G provided all the hair and beauty products used for the makeovers

When you find out the military man in your life is being honored by the USO at their annual gala, you’re certainly thrilled and proud. But hobnobbing with Washingtonian politicos and top military officials in a glittering ballroom can be a daunting idea for the average woman! Guest Lori Johnson said, “I’ve been to a couple military formals, but nothing on this scale. It’s a little overwhelming… but exciting!” Luckily the USO and P&G were there to help make things as fun and relaxing as possible!

The day of the event, the spouses, mothers, and the honorees themselves were invited to the P&G Beauty and Grooming Lounge for some well-deserved pampering! There were five fully stocked stations for hair, make-up and shaving to take advantage of to help the families feel as confident as possible for their big night. “I’m ready for my transformation!” exclaimed military mom Marilyn Torrens.

One thought on “USO | P&G Beauty and Grooming Lounge

  1. Good grooming is very important in anybody’s life. You do not have to be a cancer survivor to believe that “when one looks good, one feels good”. When one loses the will to live or suffers from PTSD or is in a deep depression, it is usually expressed in the lack of personal grooming, i.e., “forgetting” to bathe, not shaving, putting on clean clothes, among other outward signals. It is up to the caregivers to encourage those who are not able to care for themselves to make their loved ones look good, every day, not just for an event. Kudos to USO and P & G who cared enough to donate goods and services for our heroes, to make them look fantastic for the gala.
