Meet Lux and Laurens

Lux and Laurens, the founders of TransMakeover, are more than just business partners; they’re embodiments of the transformational journeys their clients embark on. Identifying as genderfluid individuals, they have experienced the joys and challenges of navigating gender identity firsthand. Their personal journeys have led them to a profound realization: that they could fully express themselves without the need for transitioning, embracing both their male and female identities.

A Passion for Transformation

Lux and Laurens’ shared passion for crossdressing and transformations extends across the Male-to-Female (MtF) and Female-to-Male (FtM) spectrums. Inspired by their personal experiences, they co-founded Trans Makeover and Trans Academy, institutions dedicated to the art and science of gender transformation.

Lux / Johnny

Lux boasts an impressive background in fashion, having worked as a Fashion Week designer, incorporating genderfluid, trans, and crossdressing models in her runway shows. She has also styled for television programs, music videos, and high-profile events like the MTV Awards.

Growing up as a tomboy in a conservative Jehovah’s Witness family, Lux initially struggled to explore her gender identity. However, upon breaking free from these constraints, she delved into the world of transformation, honing her skills in both natural and more extreme makeup styles. Lux’s experience as a designer and her knowledge in psychology further enhance her ability to guide clients through their transformative makeovers.

Laurens / Loren

Laurens, also known as Loren, discovered their feminine side at an early age. Over time, this exploration of identity became a fundamental part of their life. But Laurens’ passions don’t stop there. A talented photographer and IT professional, Laurens has turned their photography hobby into a professional career, capturing the transformative journeys of their clients. Laurens’ talent for photography not only documents each transformation journey but also empowers clients to see themselves through a new lens.

The Perfect Combination

When Lux and Laurens met, they discovered a synergy of skills and passions that was too powerful to ignore. They realized they shared a common mission: to help others embrace their authentic selves, whether that meant unveiling their other side or exploring their true selves through the transformative power of makeovers and self-expression. Besides being the perfect combination for Trans Makeover, they also found love and are soon to be married ❤️.

Through TransMakeover, Lux and Laurens provide a safe, inclusive, and empowering space for individuals to explore their gender identity, offering a guiding hand at every step of their journey.

Our Journey

The story of TransMakeover begins with two individuals who dared to step outside societal norms, to embrace and express their unique identities. Lux and Laurens, having lived their personal journeys of transformation, wanted to create a space where others could do the same, free from judgment and full of support. And so, TransMakeover was born.
