(Afrikaans synopsis below)

Forget about those dull style consultations and visits to the beauty parlour - kykNET's brand new style makeover show Glam Guru: Make Me Beautiful is finally here.

This 24-minute, 13-episode series takes normal people and gives them their time in the spotlight with a simple but dazzling new future.

You've seen dozens of different versions of makeover shows before, but Glam Guru does things differently. No knives, hospitals or months of tedious diets - just simple changes which make people look and feel better to take with them into a brighter future.

Glam Guru is also full of handy tips for anyone to look their best.

The two style teams have the weekly task of giving a new future to two style-challenged participants, in front of all the viewers.

The host of the show, Hannon Bothma, is known all over as a man of cleanliness and style. Some call him the Super-Stylist, others The Miracle Man. He rose to fame as the flamboyant hair-and-makeup guru in M-net's local makeover series Star Maker Story.

The Glam Guru casts an all-seeing eye over each candidate's makeover.
