ATLANTA -- Many people wish they could give makeovers to their hardworking moms.

Students at Atlanta-area Empire Beauty Schools will have the chance to do just that during a special event known as "Celebrate Mom."

Current and prospective Empire students are invited to bring their moms to school on certain days in January and February as they explore whether a career in beauty is right for them. The mothers in attendance will have the chance to compete in a fashion show and get the makeovers they deserve.

"Most of our students will tell you that there is one special person in their life whose support was central to their journey to cosmetology school and beyond," said Franklin K. Schoeneman, chairman and CEO of Empire Education Group. "Whether that person is a mom or a grandmother or even a big brother or sister, we want to celebrate the importance family plays in all our students' success stories. What's more, Empire has a number of mothers and daughters, even mothers and sons, attending school together. We've always thought of Empire as a family, but for many of our students, it is -- literally!"

Prospective students who bring a loved one to Celebrate Mom will receive free mini-manicures; anyone who enrolls with Empire during this special event will take home a free Chi flat iron upon beginning classes.

Representatives from Empire Gives Back, the education group's charity that raises money and awareness for domestic violence prevention, will also present checks to Atlanta-area battered women's shelters during the events. The funds were raised by local students.

Celebrate Mom will take place from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on:

* Monday, Jan. 31 (Town Center Plaza, 425 Ernest W. Barrett Parkway South, Suite 1120, Kennesaw, 30144)
* Tuesday, Feb. 1 (4719 Ashford Dunwoody Road, Suite 205, Dunwoody, 30338)
* Wednesday, Feb. 2 (1455 Pleasant Hill Road, Suite, 105, Lawrenceville, 30044)
