Why You Don’t Need a Hair Stylist

The sad truth is that because hair stylists focus primarily on hair they suffer from tunnel vision, and as a result they usually can’t tell you what will work for your overall look, let alone your job, your social life, and your personal image. For all of that, it’s helpful to talk with an image consultant.

Sure, you have to get your hair done—that’s a given. But first you need to determine what hairstyle works best, not only for your face, but also for your job and your social life. A good person to help you with that is an image consultant, and that’s one of the things we specialize in at Manhattan Makeovers. After we discuss your overall image with you, we’ll actually bring you to a hair stylist who will do the job right. More than this, we’ll help you understand how to get the same effect on your own. Read on to discover why this is so important.

The Importance of Knowing Your Hair

If you impulsively go to a hair stylist, your hair might look okay for, at most, three days. (There’s no guarantee it will look appropriate for your job or social life. But it will look different, and you’ll probably think it looks okay because it’s different.) But after those three days it’ll return to its normal look. And you’re out all the money you spent. What a waste! The next paragraph tells you how to avoid this problem.

The way to avoid this waste of time and money is to use an image consultant, preferably one who has done research about effective hairstyles for attorneys and other professionals. He can help you discover not only the look that will suit your job and social life, but he can also introduce you to a professional hair stylist (one who has worked on celebrities, attorneys, and artists) who will take the time not only to do your hair right, but also to teach you the tricks and tips that will allow you to maintain that exciting new look on your own.

Don’t Throw Your Money Away on a Hair Stylist

Don’t waste your time and money going to a hair stylist who will only give you a look or a cut that will be good for a few days. Instead, work with an image consultant, who will guide you through the luxurious process of defining an appropriate new look. Then he’ll take you to your new hair stylist and instruct the stylist in how to help you learn to maintain your new hairstyle.

We’ll help you with your overall look—and your hair. Do yourself a favor and call us before you visit a hair stylist. You’ll be glad you did.

By the way, the hairstyle in the photograph of Claudia Schiffer (Fig. 1.) tests poorly for female law students and attorneys. It is too long and too untidy.
