You don't need much to look great during the summer; a good tan, sunkissed hair, natural-looking makeup and a to-die-for smile will get you through nicely. The professionals at Valencia Dental Arts, Enchanted Tan, Spa Villa Salon & Spa, Della Stella, and Coko Pour La Femme came together to give our makeover recipient and PTA mom Gina Bornemann-Banojakedjian a new summer style.
Mark Gould, proud dad of Malaney (5) and Maxton (2), is a freelance director with a master's degree from Cal Arts. While there's no doubt that Mark is a great dad/husband/director, his sense of fashion has been called into question on more than one occasion. Between work and family, Mark finds little time to get (and stay) groomed, so Inside SCV thought we'd help him out a bit. With assistance from Citron Spa and Spa Villa Salon, we turned a scruffy dad into a father a kid wouldn't mind taking to a bake sale.

Christine Harper of Canyon Country is a mother of two who doesn't have a whole lot of time to spend getting glamorous, so we decided to give her a look that was simple to maintain and could be easily dressed-up or dressed-down depending on the circumstances.
