Annual Day of Beauty event held downtown

Titus County hairstylists and make-up artists combined their talents to put on the Annual Day of Beauty event in downtown Mount Pleasant on Saturday, Sept. 9.

A Day of Beauty is held at Jo’s Coffee Downtown on the square. Each year General Manager Heather Kimball donates space in the building for the event, which provides free extreme makeovers to women 18 and older as part of an outreach begun in 2005.

Mary Shults, a survivor of both physical and verbal abuse, originally organized the event. Due to the stigma that sometimes accompanies abuse, Shults kept her story a secret until she was 39 years old.

She felt the need to put together an outreach program.
