Cancer survivor launches beauty and health workshops in Louisville

Heidi Fuller

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A new program in Louisville encourages and educates those who have cancer to Look Fabulous, Be Awesome.

Created by Awakenings Boutique founder and owner Heidi Fuller, Look Fabulous, Be Awesome begins this month and will include quarterly events. With the first event set for March 20, the two-hour workshops will focus on beauty and health techniques to help female “cancer slayers” combat the physical side effects of cancer treatments.

Fuller, who fought a battle against Stage 3 uterine cancer, said, “There’s a real lack of education and support in Louisville for those who have cancer. I created Look Fabulous, Be Awesome to fill this void. When I had cancer, I didn’t know where to turn for education about basic needs such as wigs, skin care, nutrition and fitness. I don’t want others to feel that way.”

Held at Awakenings Boutique in Middletown (12121 Shelbyville Road, beside Two Chicks), the March 20 event is free to those who currently have cancer. Space is limited to the first 30 women who RSVP via evite. Attendees will be educated about:

  • Dealing with Hair Loss – Specific topics include wig wisdom 101, hats and scarves, and hair pieces / toppers. Fuller will lead this discussion.
  • Fitness and Nutrition – Led by The Barre Code Louisville owner Heather Thomas, this portion will focus on the importance of strength training, exercises that can be done at home and healthy eating advice.
  • Skincare and Makeup – Fuller and makeup artist Ashley Meadows will talk about non-toxic makeup and skincare brands as well as demo ways to create brows and lashes after hair loss.

In addition to the personalized education and camaraderie, there will be light bites and healthy drinks at Look Fabulous, Be Awesome. Learn more about Fuller and Awakenings online and on social media @WigLadyBoutique.
