It used to be, that elite executives, sports stars and Hollywood celebrities hired image consultants. Nowadays, anyone can hire one to help them improve their personal and professional style. An investment in your appearance can improve your self-confidence, augment your social standing, and increase your job opportunities.
The First Meeting with the Image Consultant
You might be concerned that the image consultant will arrive at your home, only to raid your closet, tossing out cloths willy-nilly, and making you feel inadequate about your appearance. Nothing could be further from the truth. However, the?first meting?is geared toward helping you effectively improve your style. The first appointment will involve:
- A full discussion of your lifestyle, including your job (or potential new job), leisure and social activities, what you can afford to spend, family responsibilities and a discussion of your goals.
- An analysis of your body shape, hair, and face.
- Discussion of clothing and makeup trends.
- A closet sweep to discover your personal style and find what you have in your wardrobe.
- Followed by shopping trips to fill out your wardrobe and a hair and makeup make-over.
How to Dress
Once your body shape, style preference, and the contents of your current wardrobe contents have been determined, the image consultant will help you find styles and colors to enhance your shape and style, and work with the items already in your wardrobe. Choosing ?both classic trendy pieces to mix and match with your current wardrobe, ?will expand your wardrobe to cover all aspects of your life, without breaking the bank.
Proper Use of Makeup
Getting a make-over for your hair and makeup will further enhance your overall look. The aim is to obtain a new style for hair and makeup that can be tweaked for work, leisure, religious services or a night out on the town, which will improve your self-confidence. Your consultant will help you find the right hair stylist as well as set up a makeup consultation that will teach you to apply your makeup in a way that compliments your facial features.
Once you?ve got your new look set up, your image consultant will remain available for continued guidance and encouragement. So, whether you?re looking for a new job, a promotion, or just a way to look and feel better about how you look, an image consultant can help you do just that.
