About the Downtown SB Makeover Contest:

Once we know which businesses are willing to take part, we’ll start promoting the nomination process! Social media promotion will go something like this...


"Are you a bit burned out, stressed out or in serious need to get your hair done? Maybe you're in need of a massage or a new outfit after having been head down dealing with WAY too much in the middle of a pandemic? Teaching classes via zoom? Scrambling to find new employment?

WE HEAR YOU, and we are responding to the call.



At least two deserving individuals will be selected to win a makeover from a number of downtown Santa Barbara businesses!"
