Makeovers are known to help a woman find her true self by stripping her of all her masks, make-up, clothing and a truck load of money. However, today’s Groupon will help you find yourself without breaking the bank. Pay only R225 for a colour coding session and personalised consult with an image consultant worth R450 at Nixz. Not only are you saving money with a Groupon, a session at Nixz also arms you with the skill of quality shopping and how to effectively save money – skills that go past a wardrobe session with Nicola.
Nicola Jaffar, owner of Nixz, designer, image consultant, make-up artist and fairy godmother helps women bring out the real lady hidden beneath the layers of unflattering clothing and mismatched make-up. Through analysing your skin tone and personality, Nicola together with her team will determine what colours best suit you and which ones belong on the list of no-no’s along with faded track suit pants and granny panties. Whether it be an elegant beauty or a feisty minx that hatches from your shell, chances are you’ll be astonished and bounce around like ‘after’ girls on a makeover show.
However, what makes Nixz’ advice different from the cliché before-after shows on TV, is that there aren’t cameras to capture you stripped down to your undies and she takes your lifestyle into consideration. The clothing is practical, comfortable and you can actually walk and sit down in it. The make-up doesn’t require you to get up at three to paste on layers, perfect intricate shades and get the nuances just right to avoid looking like a rodeo clown. Nixz doesn’t create a new you, she just brings out the real you, polishing the surface and dusting off the cobwebs.

Makeover fact: The first makeover session took place at a royal braai in a meadow in Rome. Sydney Malherbe misread the invite and showed up dressed as a gummybear. With nowhere to change he stood behind a tree, changed into his tux and came out shouting ‘bet you don’t recognise me now!’ to the applause of guests. This quickly became a popular party trick.
