Why Is a Portrait Like a Haircut??
You know that feeling of getting great results at the salon? That moment when your stylist puts the finishing touches on your new cut and you turn to see yourself in the mirror and say “Wow!”. You walk outside and people can’t take their eyes off you, everyone you know not only notices but says “Wow!” too.
When you have a haircut like that, it makes you feel like a million dollars. Like the stars have aligned to come together and give you the “look” you were born to have. You find yourself going out of your way to make social appointments, go out on dates, have in person meetings… Show-It-Off.
You start shopping for clothes specifically to go with your new “do”. Even new jewelry (for us ladies) just so everyone can see how spectacular your new hair is….
“The perfect haircut” equals almost instant confidence; it has the power to get you excited and out into the world to do your thang.
There is no real magic to getting a great haircut (except that there is):
All of which results in that million-dollar look and feeling!
Why am I making this comparison?
Well, because I just recently got my hair cut and had exactly the opposite experience!!
I still get compliments from strangers. Which is nice, but… Bottom line, it wasn’t what I had pictured in my head and ‘it doesn’t look like me”.
I’m avoiding mirrors and spending money on headbands and bobby pins to hide this ‘mess’ while it grows out! I’m hiding from social engagements and to the people I do visit with, I spend half the time complaining about it. Ugh.
What went wrong?? Where was the magic? The answer is easy:
And now, I have to let it grow out until my usual stylist comes back and can bring me back to beautiful hair.
Some of you fellas out there may not know this exact feeling, but I know that the ladies do. It’s tough.
The point I’m making in all this, is that your professional image acts in much the same way as a haircut does.
When you look great, you feel great. When you feel great, you’re inspired to go out and do great things!
You attract people to you. You’re eager and excited to engage with other people. It’s a win win all around, because you’re positioned at your best and ready to give your best.
That is the face of your company you want to put forward!
