Congratulations Rob & Lizy Gipson the winners of Ocean 98.5’s Ultimate Couples Makeover!

Ultimate Couples Makeover!

Do you and your significant other want a new fall look? Complete with new wardrobe, glasses, hair style, skin treatments and both a wellness and fitness package? Win it all with the Ultimate Couples Makeover!  Upload a photo of yourself and your partner or the couple you are nominating with a brief explanation of why you/they should win the Ultimate Couples Makeover.

Hundreds of people entered the contest, it was narrowed down to the top 5, and then to the top 1!

Read their compelling story:

“We’re ready for a makeover!  We are the Gipsons, a hardworking couple that opens our home and their hearts to those that need comfort, safety and a great meal. We naturally take care of others and often don’t find time to take care of and nurture ourselves.

As you can see, we would greatly benefit from weight management and learning how to take care of our health and wellness! Of course, losing weight also means that our wardrobe would need to be updated, it’s hard to justify buying new clothes when you are a larger person. It would be an added treat to celebrate success in moving to take care of our lives and still keep good care of those we love.”

 – Rob & Lizy Gipson

What they WON!

Stay tuned to see the results of Rob & Lizy’s journey!  Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry will pamper Lizy with a makeover including hair, makeup & styling, and a royal treatment for Rob in our relaxed urban-styled studio!  Followed by a couples photo-shoot with the talented Edward Lai with on-location touchups!
