For the second year in a row, Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines will partner with Restoration Inc. to celebrate our volunteers and girls as they Restore the Glam. Girl Scouts and volunteers are invited to join conversation on inner and outer beauty, discuss fashion trends, and get tips on hair and makeup at the event with special guests: Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter; Michelle Hargrove, Entrepreneur, Speaker and former Girl Scout; and Toni Acey and Chris Gees, celebrity hair and makeup artists.
“Each year, we partner with a local organization, school or church to make a difference in the lives of mothers and children everywhere,” said Michelle Hargrove, Restore the Glam event host and founder of Restoration, Inc. “Our goal is to empower, educate and restore hope to young girls. Through this partnership with the Girl Scouts of North Carolina Coastal Pines we will meet that goal in North Carolina.”
