Helga's Makeover is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.

Synopsis

After every girl except Helga has been invited to Rhonda's party, the boys have suggested that Helga's not a girl and a man on the streets has called her "young man", she wants to show everybody that she can indeed be feminine. So she buys an issue of Preteen Miss at the Corner Store where Gerald's mother works at the checkout. Then she locks herself in in the bathroom and starts her makeover. The result makes Miriam and Bob faint and the girls on Rhonda's party speechless.

While Helga's giving make-up tips at Rhonda's, Sid who had seen her tells the boys, who are eating at Omar's Falafel Hut, about Helga's new looks. That makes them curious so they come up with a plan to scare the girls. Meanwhile, Phoebe tries to reason with her best friend. She explains that she wants back the old Helga back, but Helga refuses. Just when Rhonda is about to drop one scoopful of avocado cream into Helga's face, she changes her mind and becomes the old Helga again. She tells the other girls what they are doing is stupid because they don't need high heel shoes since they are taller than the boys, and don't need the cream cause they are only nine years old and they don't have wrinkles or signs of aging. Rhonda reveals that the only they are doing this is because they heard that what girls do during sleepovers. 

At that moment the girls hear a noise coming from outside the window. When they pull the curtains aside they see the boys staring at them. The girls are scared of the boys and the boys are scared of the girls with their avocado cream masks. So the boys start to run away and the girls chase them. But Harold is not fast enough and falls prey to the girls and put makeup on his face and saying this is much more fun then what they were doing before.
