Look Good, feel better

The Outer Banks Hospital Cancer Services has partnered with the Look Good Feel Better Foundation, the Professional Beauty Association and community cosmetologists and estheticians to provide the Look Good Feel Better Program for local cancer patients. Trained beauty professionals demonstrate makeup techniques, wigs and scarves to help women with cancer cope and adjust to the side effects of treatment (hair loss and changes to skin complexion and nails). 

The program is provided free of charge to all female cancer patients.

During this time, we will also be offering these sessions virtually. Please call Marie at 252-449-5935 to enroll in a session.
