Anna’s Journey By Anna Gregg A couple of months ago I received a phone call from Juvae, telling me that I had won a $5000 makeover. I was a bit taken aback as I’d completely forgotten that I had even entered the competition, so I assumed that the call was either a marketing gimmick or a joke. Then the shock set in. I had actually won the competition!

apprehensive, then guilty and even embarrassed. It was all to do with my frown lines. I have always had deep frown lines in my forehead and so people often assumed I was angry. They would either apologise to me constantly or avoid me altogether. I was sick of people thinking this angry person was who I really was. I was quite nervous on the day of the injectables, I didn’t really want people to know what I was having done and I was scared I’d come away looking like someone who’d “had work done”. However, the girls at Juvae were extremely friendly and immediately put me at ease. After a consultation, the specialist doctors injected me with Dermal Fillers and Non-Surgical Injectables. Two hours later, I walked out slightly dazed and a bit bruised, but looking amazing. I could see the results straight away.

Over the next week, my face continued to improve. I lost the ability to frown, and my face glowed. I
treatments. But no one seemed to notice. The reactions were subtler. I realised that people read faces sub-consciously; a frowning face means “angry/keep away”, a relaxed face means “approachable”. I had become more approachable, because I was no longer giving the wrong signals. The second part of my Makeover happened a few weeks later. Firstly, the spray tan, I had only had one spray tan before and it had looked streaky and terrible. I was really impressed with the results from Ella Rouge. Having very fair skin, I have never been able to get a natural tan, but this one made me look healthy and fantastic. There is nothing like a tan to make you look and feel younger and slimmer! The next day was my hair and shopping day. I am a bit apprehensive when it comes to haircuts. I have had some shockers in the past! My hair was long and damaged and I desperately needed a good cut and colour. The hairdressers at Hair Force were amazing! Helmer and Mario are a husband and wife team, who really know hair. They looked carefully at my hair, roots, hairline, the shape of my face and my skin I love the cut and colour they have given me and comments from friends and family have all been very positive. Next up was the fun part of the makeover. I met up with Kate from Juvae and we went shopping. Our
These made my skin glow. I then headed back to Hair Force for a wash and pre photo hair styling. Then back to Ella Rouge for mineral makeup.
