Posted by on May 6, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off on 7 Popular Image Questions You May Be Asking and My Answers




Image Question Picture

As you can imagine, I receive many image related questions. Here are the most common ones, along with my typical responses:

Clothing Questions:

Image Question(s) My Initial Response/Question(s)
What do you think of the colour(s) of my outfit?OR

Does (the popular clothing colour) black suit me?

Is the colour(s) in your colour palette?Is the colour(s) making you look dull, unbalanced or even older?Note: If you do not know the answers to these questions, it is recommended you have a colour analysis session with a trained professional in colour analysis.YOUR colour palette is based on YOUR internal composition.  Once you know your colour and flow of season it will not change. This will be your colour palette for life.

This is also why I have clients who hire me multiple times each year, and over a period of years, so that we build a comprehensive wardrobe that showcases YOUR best energy to everyone around you.

What do you think of the outfit I am wearing? Is the colour(s) you are wearing in your colour palette?(See note in first row above.)

Does the outfit excite you?

Does the outfit maximize your body silhouette so you give off your best energy?

Does the outfit align with the image you are looking to present at the event/place/social activity you are at or going to?

Does the item show off your personality?

How old is the outfit?

Is the outfit showing some wear and tear?

Is the outfit giving off an outdated look?

Do the patterns in my outfit suit me? When you look in the mirror is the pattern distracting you from seeing your face?(i.e. are you more inclined to look at the pattern in your clothing or your face? – The goal is to see you.)Is the colour(s) of the pattern in your colour palette?

(See note in first row above.)

Are you more angular, curvy or somewhere in between?

(The pattern you are wearing should align with this level of detail about you.)

 

Hair Questions:

Image Question(s) My Initial Response/Question(s)
What do you think of my hair colour? Is your hair colour(s) in your colour palette?(See note in first row above.)
Should I go for a hair trim? How are the ends of your hair looking?Is your hair on the longer side and has it been more than 3-4 months since your last trim?

-If so, your hair style has probably lost its shape and needs at minimum the ends freshened up.

Is your hair style short and has it been longer than 5-6 weeks since your last trim?

-If so, you definitely need a trim to put some shape back into your hair style.

Should I start wearing a new hair style? Does your current hair style align with:

  1. Your facial shape?
  2. Your career?
  3. Your lifestyle?
  4. Upcoming important events (i.e. a wedding look)?
  5. Your personality?

When was the last time you updated your hair style?

-If it has been more than say, 3-4 years, you definitely need to change it up.  In most cases an outdated hair style tells others that you may be outdated and resistant to change.

If you have asked one of the 7 popular image questions above recently and/or heard a friend ask them, now you have potential answers that both of you can use that will help to get you on track.

If you are not working with an image consultant, be sure to use these questions when you need them, and, of course,  may they inspire you to wear your authenticity!
