Okay – let’s talk turkey, let’s get real, and let’s speak the truth. I was reading a magazine today and happened upon a headline that stated in big bold letters "Haircuts That Take 10 Years Off Your Life". Well any headline, advertisement or product that claims to turn back the hands of time has got my attention. So, being the gullible "wanting to look ever younger consumer" that I am, I flipped through the article – and in fact the before and after pictures were amazing. You’ve seen it all before, in magazines and on television shows. The after is always a ‘wow’ experience.
Here’s my think on the whole before/after scenario. The woman who participate in them don’t just get a haircut, no, they get an entire make-over. Sorry, no fair. If you look closely the haircuts they receive cost more than the vacation I took 3 years ago, and if you really look at those pictures in the magazines or rewind the TV show – you’ll see that they had professional make-up artists do their make-up, some really excellent lighting, new clothes, and possibly some teeth whitening.
Here’s the deal. Whether they’re selling me a new cream that promises to remove the cracks and crevices on my face, or selling me a type of pantyhose with the forever promise that I will never have to do another sit-up in my life – It all comes down to me. The inside of me. In the end – it’s attitude that counts. It’s how I feel and what I project. New haircuts are nice, wrinkle cream will help – but in the end, it’s always, and only me.
What are your thoughts on make-overs?
