This is Emma. She’s an outdoorsy girl, quick with a smile, smart, ambitious, and empathetic. She’s been out of college for a few years now and has a degree. But admittedly, she was stuck in the style of very casual co-ed.
No longer wishing for the way-too-casual look of her teen years, she desperately wanted a new image. She’s building a business as a career councilor and needs to look the part.
Emma told me she wanted to come across as fresh, intelligent, insightful, and authentic. So we rolled up our sleeves and got to work.
Stephen Schaller at Salon Salon in Boulder cut Emma’s hair several inches, but left it long enough to still capture her flair. Then she came to me, Marian Rothschild, Personal Stylist, Wardrobe and Image Consultant with Look Good Now in Boulder, CO.
After much discussion about what look Emma would like, I gave her a color analysis and discussed wardrobe options. I did makeup application and chatted the whole time about makeup tips, especially accenting her beautiful eyes.. I put large hot rollers in her hair, wrapping clumps onto the roller and securing them on the sides of her head for just a few minutes. I let the curls fall naturally and didn’t brush them out.
We chose the perfect soft cotton jacket for Emma, with a light blouse underneath and casual, updated pearls. This gave the look of current, professional, without appearing stuffy or conservative. Boulder photographer Dana Rogers took these great photos. Dana does great work and can update your professional business headshot, too.
And here she is, fabulous EmmaReuss! She can help you find a career!
