Patricia Washington, from left, of Chicago, Denice Crouthers, of Gary, and Yolanda Davis, of Gary, sit under hairdryers Monday at Divine Design Hair Salon in Merrillville. The women took part in Triumphant Transitions Inc.'s sixth annual Valentine's Day makeover for participants of the Lake County Department of Corrections Community Transition Program. The makeovers were followed by an empowerment luncheon during which the women participated in workshops in career and legal matters that included dressing for success and self-esteem. "It's not only a blessing for those being served, but also for those serving," said Latrice Edwards of Triumphant Transitions.
