I want to dedicate the beauty part of my blog to name a few people and companies that I’ve encountered that are related to beauty. As a women working in the dating and relationship business and constantly being in front of people, self image and public image is so vital to my success.
It’s very true that first impressions are often a lasting one and unfortunately many people DO judge a book by it’s cover. Knowing this fact I really do focus on looking and feeling my best especially when I know I will be meeting directly with new clients and business associates.
Pulling off the “Total Package” look in my mind means paying attention to yourself from head to toe. This means good grooming starting with your hair and working yourself down to your toes. If you are REALLY conscious of taking care of yourself it means you care about yourself inside and out! Personal hygiene is a MUST! It’s amazing how many people I run into that look as if they just rolled out of bed.
As most women look straight down to men’s shoes or their teeth (oral hygiene is SUPER important) men are also combing you up and down looking at hair, skin, teeth, fingernails, toe nails, shoes, clothing, the whole 9 yards!
So I truly believe regular maintenance is important ladies! I am certainly NOT implying that I am ALWAYS 100% interview or date ready. But when I KNOW I’ve got some upkeep to take care of, I limit my exposure to the public and try to get to whatever beauty service I need to take care of the situation ASAP. It’s important that you are conscious about it.
So here are a few of my favorite places to go to for some of your beauty needs! We all need to take care of our inner Diva and stay as presentable as possible, particularly those of us that are wanting to “attract” a person of the opposite sex!
