Makeover Tips to Make Head Turn
years and the same
face/persona looking back at you can leave you bored. The
hairstyle, pattern of
dress code can leave you discontented with your own self.
There comes a time when we feel a need of change, whether a hair
redo, dress code or make-up. What encompasses a makeover? Well,
it is a term applied to changing one's
appearance, sometimes through cosmetics. Makeovers can range
from something as simple as a new haircut, to the use of
cosmetic surgery, to the extreme of the implantation of
dental veneers, eye-color-changing contact lenses, and the use
of appearance-altering gastric bypass surgeries, providing
in obese persons, and the associated plastic surgeries, such as
abdominoplasty, to eliminate the resulting loose-hanging skin
folds (the "panniculus").
The most important thing to consider whilst you are looking for
a makeover, is that you feel comfortable with what your
therapist is doing. If your therapist suggests something extreme
and you're not comfortable with it, then say so. But at the same
time, try to be adventurous.
A makeover should refresh and invigorate you and build your
Things to keep in mind when opting for a makeover:
What's the Occasion: Whether you're having a makeover for a
special occasion or just looking for tips on how you can improve your
appearance generally, the stylist should take some time to find out about
you. You can discuss your
hair colour and texture, the demands of your lifestyle and your feelings
about clothes and change. This will help your therapist to assess how much
of a change you want, and what tips will be practical for you.
Don't rely too much on Comfort: Sweatpants, sneakers and bulky
sweatshirts are comfortable, but don't do much for the figure or confidence
level. There are many pieces of clothing, for example ballet flats, that are
just as comfortable but are much more stylish and figure friendly. A white
button-down blouse and great fitting jeans are just two of the pieces that
need to be in the closet. These pieces can mix and match with a variety of
other pieces to create endless outfits. Accessories can also make a huge
difference; for example, new earrings make a person's face look different.
Take note of Physical Changes: If you are going for a fashion
makeover, take note of your latest body statistics for that perfect fit.
Also discuss your skin and
hair colour and
texture, the demands of your lifestyle and your feelings about clothes and
change. This will help your therapist to assess how much of a change you
want, and what tips will be practical for you. For example, to add height
and look slim, choose clothes that are tailored to fit your shape.
Need for a Healthy Diet: The US National Weight Control Registry
reported that successful long-term weight losers and maintainers shared a
number of characteristics including a low-fat diet, regular cereal
consumption and regular exercise. This has been supported by other
studies in which eating breakfast, especially a cereal breakfast, is
associated with a lower body
mass index. The reason for this are probably to do with how a breakfast
meal establishes patterns of eating or overeating for the following meals.

Learn to Balance Body Imperfections: Shape and silhouette are one
thing, but then we all have our niggling little quirks that require further
advice and fine-tuning. If the length of your neck bothers you, fill in the
space by wearing a
that ends mid-way down your neck. Use chokers, scarves and roll-neck tops to
'shorten' length. In case you have a short neck, always wear an open
neckline. A V-neck top creates an illusion of a longer, slimmer neck, or
wear a fine chain below the collar bone; longer chains are even more
slimming/elongating. In case you are small busted, make the most of what you
have got with a good bra that creates shape (avoid sports bras in favour of
slightly padded styles). Note that, short sleeves 'widen' the bust area. To

exception. The first is the risk of the surgical procedure itself and the
second is that of anesthesia.
