Personal stylist services are becoming more and more popular. A competent specialist is able to deftly turn an ordinary girl into a Hollywood beauty. But it is not known whether it is worth chasing Hollywood standards, losing their own individuality.
The TV screen constantly flashes programs about the miraculous transformation of ordinary students, housewives and ordinary working women. "Gray mice", dressed in inexpressive things, are transformed into airy fairies with impeccable makeup and styling. Looking at them, many women look in the mirror and sigh, dreaming of the same magic stylist. And at this time, fashion historians are sounding the alarm - there are almost no original women left in the world, everyone is becoming similar to one another.
A personal stylist is, as a rule, a person with the education of an imageologist. It helps you find the right clothes, hairstyle and accessories based on your appearance. However, the stylist will not be able to look into your soul and recognize your character. It is quite possible that the chosen image will conflict with your ideas about yourself. Two situations must be distinguished here. The first is when you are simply not used to the image. You have not thought about your appearance for years, but here they made a beautiful princess out of you. Such dramatic changes and obvious attention from the opposite sex can be unsettling. In this case, you need to wait a little and get used to the new image, because a bright appearance gives self-confidence.
Be sure to look at the stylist's portfolio, the results of his work "before" and "after".
Another situation arises when the stylist has chosen the wrong image for you. For example, in your soul you are very tender and vulnerable, you love butterflies and pink, and the image maker offers you an aggressive military style. In this case, it is better to discuss in advance with the stylist what your goal is, what you love and what you don’t. If the master insists that only red lipstick and a vamp look are suitable for you, it is better to look for another specialist. A good stylist will always listen to the client's opinion.
You also need to pay attention to how comfortable you will be in the proposed image. For example, if a stylist tells you to get a trendy haircut, consider if you can tinker with your styling tools. Determine how expensive your new style is. Are you ready to tint your roots monthly with a contrasting color? Or it would be better to do fashionable ombre coloring or California highlights - then your hairstyle will require a much rarer visit to the salon. Compare if your new wardrobe will fit your usual lifestyle. If you are constantly on the move and love activity, it is unlikely that it will be convenient for you to move around the city in tight skirts and stiletto heels.
The work of a good stylist cannot be cheap. The average price is 10-30 thousand rubles.
And finally, some tips for choosing a stylist. Firstly, the stylist must have the appropriate education or a certificate of completion of the courses. You should not trust an ordinary hairdresser or makeup artist. Secondly, you should be attracted by the appearance of the stylist himself. Each image maker has an ideal image, which he embodies on himself. Therefore, the appearance of the stylist speaks of his professional handwriting. And most importantly, you should be comfortable with this person. The stylist should have a good attitude and gain trust - this is the only way he will be able to create an image that suits you.
