Hairstylist Shawn L. Brown, better known as The Hair Doctor, recently moved, but don’t worry: She splits her time—though not your ends—between Sacramento and Southern California. In January, Brown starts a 10-city tour throughout the United States doing free hair makeovers—broadcast on local television morning shows—primarily on people who, she says, “don’t have the opportunity to take care of themselves.” “We choose the type of people that take care of others or have experienced some challenges and could use a boost,” she says. Past makeover winners have included homeless women and teachers, but Brown once surprised her Facebook fans with makeovers.
