“Where youthful beauty is unconscious, mature beauty is knowing and sophisticated.” No clearer definition has been spoken on the subject of beauty than this adage by Sophia Loren.
I challenged my readers in Wednesday’s post, titled The Hair Challenge, to take a chance on change and mix-up your hairstyle daily for 20 straight days. You will be pleasantly surprised at the positive reaction from family, friends and colleagues. We all get in a rut – myself included – of getting too comfortable with our “signature look.” The problem with “signature looks” is one style rarely complements every wardrobe change or event on your varied schedule. Another problem with “signature looks” is family, friends and colleagues are reluctant to mention that change is longgggg overdue… for fear of retaliation.
Let me leave you today with a few words from one of the world’s great beauties, that just happened to embrace the concept of change throughout her illustrious and varied life.
“I used to change my hair color almost every day…one day I would be a redhead, the next a blonde and finally a brunette.”
“In the course of my film career I have had many different hairstyles and I found that each one highlighted various aspects of my looks and my personality.”
“I always prefer a simple hairstyle, with subtle changes, however formal the occasion.”
I threw in these last couple quotes simply because I liked the message they evoke.
“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.”
“If you can learn to use your mind as well as your powder puff, you will become more truly beautiful.”
