What You Deserve was founded in 2019 when Lindsey organized a day of makeovers for two moms during the holiday season. This inspired Lindsey to turn her idea into a non-profit organization that could provide moms in need with support and a way to feel confident about themselves. Get it, girl!

This wild and crazy ride is just beginning. We are so excited for big things to come in the future. We will keep you posted on events and opportunities!

Lindsey King

Founder

Hey You! My name is Lindsey King and I live in Poway, California outside of San Diego. I am a hairstylist at The Beauty Bungalow salon, and a mom of two. I am married to an incredible man who supports all of my dreams and ideas. And that’s exactly what this is; a dream of mine I am able to make come to life.

As a kid, I had a philanthropic nature. I collected money year-round in my piggy bank and my parents allowed me to spend it on what I wanted that year in December. Instead, I gave it out to the homeless in downtown Seattle. This idea of a “Mom Makeover” came to me after hearing about the pressures and the struggles of mom life during the holidays, with the highest expectations and financial stretching, just trying to please everyone. There is nothing left for yourself. Being a mom, it’s so easy to let the mom guilt and neglect consume you. In 2019 this started as a Facebook thread in a Mom group, and this year it has elevated to so much more. I just know the best is yet to come.
