FOR THE PROCESS
Any truth-seeking journey requires some level of humility, and this one is no exception. In addition to wearing no makeup the first - and possibly only - time you meet a total stranger (me), we will cover your hair with a gray cap and study your face under full-spectrum lighting. We'll observe together how your skin tone harmonizes (or doesn't) with a variety of calibrated colorful drapes. You will see those that illuminate your appearance and those that confuse it.
FOR PERSONAL GROWTH AND REFLECTION
"I didn't know I could be this beautiful."
"I never thought of myself as pretty."
"I had no idea I could wear this!"
Those are just a few joyous comments I have the pleasure of hearing from people in my chair. But color has a strange way of bringing other, deeper things to the surface:
"I don't like people looking at me."
"My mom always made me wear things like that."
"My husband has stopped telling me I'm beautiful."
"Other guys always made fun of me."
I see a lot of tears - sad ones sometimes, as the colors remind my clients of their relationship with their appearance over the years - but also so many happy ones as they realize their beauty has been there all along, just waiting to be revealed.
