Male image consultant makeover in New York means a makeover for a man. I emphasize this point because many men don’t realize that they’re in good company when it comes to getting a makeover. For example, the President of the United States gets a makeover every time he steps in front of television cameras. A-list male actors would never think of shooting a scene without the kind of wardrobe advice that would make you blush. And rock stars, artists, and politicians are all getting image consultations on a regular basis these days. So, let me assure you that you’re in league with the best if you’re considering a male makeover.
And now for the bad news. The vast majority of image consultants are pale imitations of the best they could be. Not one of them is conducting independent research about what is effective. Don’t be led astray by “before and after” photos on their Web sites. Those are easy to arrange. The real question you need to ask if you’re a man seeking an image consultation is this. What proof do you have that your suggestions will help me be more effective at work and play?
EVIDENCE-BASED IMAGE ADVICE
Manhattan Makeovers uses a database that has been more than thirty years in the making. We also conduct ongoing research into what colors, suit styles, footwear, and accessories are actually going to make a man more successful in the workplace and in social situations.
Let me give you one example. When it comes to rainwear, did you know that a beige trench coat is your best buy? Research demonstrates that it is this color alone which is acceptable for male lawyers, bankers, accountants, and businessmen. Blue, black, and olive green are all inferior. It is research like this that can help you jumpstart your wardrobe and look your best. By “look your best” I mean be more effective. In other words you’ll get more respect from clients and colleagues with our advice.
WHY FASHION IS OUT
Are you still struggling to decide what kind of wardrobe to acquire by flipping through the pages of GQ and other fashion magazines aimed at men? I hate to tell you this, but while fashion magazines and Web sites may be an enjoyable way to pass the time, they’re hardly the way to discover what will be most effective where you work. Why is this? Well, because the fashion designers who place ads in those magazines don’t care how effective you are at work. All they care about is selling you a product. They never research to find out if their styles are garnering respect for the men who wear them. In fact, they could care less.
On the other hand, the image consultants at Manhattan Makeovers have your effectiveness uppermost in mind. We know what has tested well in the workplace for professionals, academics, artists, and businessmen. We can tell you what color pants and jacket are going to boost your credibility. We can tell you why certain styles and patterns will make you stand out as ineffective and unapproachable. We can even tell you which ties to avoid if you wish to be more persuasive to people from different backgrounds.
WHY RESEARCH IS IN
Research is the only way to discover how effective a particular garment is. The same holds true for footwear. If you’re like most accountants, for example, you’re wearing the wrong kind of shoe. We know which styles and colors are effective and which are going to offend your clients. Black cap-toe and wingtip shoes are the only two shoes we recommend. If you’re wearing anything else you’ve marked yourself as less effective.
Save yourself the embarrassment of wearing the wrong tie, the wrong color suit, the wrong hairstyle. More to the point, save yourself the wasted time hunting through stores, magazines, and Web sites. We’ve done all the research for you. We know what is effective for your profession. For attorneys, for instance, we’ll explain why the only color suits you should be wearing are blue, gray, and beige. We have evidence to back up these statements, and this evidence-based approach is what makes us the Rolls-Royce of image consultants for men. Only by doing research can you know what colors, styles, and wardrobe accessories are effective.
MALE IMAGE CONSULTANT
“Male image consultant” means an image consultant who helps men. I define the term because many men feel that an image consultation is only for women. This is hardly the case! The most powerful men regularly get image help, including the President, big-name actors, and rock stars. Give yourself the luxury . . . a luxury within reach!
