Justin Bieber’s New Hair

Hair cuts of Justin Bieber

Image consultants place a great deal of weight on hairstyle, and this is definitely an improvement for Justin. The shaggy dog style is reminiscent of Rod Blagojevich’s hair, and it never looks good on anyone. The new style is much better. It lets us see his face, plus it doesn’t look like “your mother cut …

Jennifer Aniston’s Hair

Jennifer123

Jennifer has a very common face shape  that I call the “heraldic shield” – think of a family coat of arms. Her upper jaw juts out a little, causing her chin to look a bit pointy at times. Her previous hairdo (photo left) camouflaged this perfectly – and it was really flattering to her entire …

Siobhan Magnus Presents Imaginative Image

Simon hated the butterflies–he thought they were leaves–but as part of her “costume”, American Idol contestant Siobhan Magnus chose to wear the whimsical accessories on her shoulder and hand while singing “When You Believe” last night. Really, the choice was perfect.  Her entire image–whimsical and dramatic–reflected her spoken message, the words she sung.  Perhaps a …

DumontBlog031710b

A conversation at Vibrant Nation (http://www.vibrantnation.com/our-blog-circle/menologues/clothing—it-could-be-the-biggest-single-menopausal-issue-/#replied-74012) prompted my response to the plus-size wardrobe dilemmas shared by so many: “Isn’t it nice to see that none of us is alone?  In 30 years at the forefront of the image consulting industry, I’ve learned (and teach) that color and line are the cornerstones of image and the …

Kings of Leon: The Colors that Make These Rockers Pop

This handsome rock group cleaned up beautifully–both at and for the 52nd Grammy Awards–but they look a little gloomy for just having won Record of the Year.  It’s all that grey and black.  Nice suits, but no bold contrast, no dynamic colors to enhance their natural skin tones–though I will say that the man on …

Maxwell at the Grammys: The Joy Behind His . . . Sunglasses?

DumontBlog020510e

Prior to the 52nd Grammy Awards, when asked how he felt about his six–count ’em, SIX–Grammy nominations, Maxwell let his eyes do some of the talking.  “It’s an incredible experience,” he said, and his eyes reflected a humble, sincere and hopeful spirit.  “It’s an honor that I can’t even express to you in words . …

Anderson Cooper, Your Image is My Business and I’ve Got Your Back

DumontBlog011210e

Anderson, You are such a man about town – all over the channels and keeping ‘em honest.  Bravo! Love the fact that you can go from casual attire to suits and still not betray your persona. My advice: stick to dark-colored suits like black and navy.  They show off your beautiful hair the best.  Forego …

Ethan Hawke: The Suit Suits You; the Color Pales

Nice three-piece, Ethan. Very British. My advice: this color is too much like your hair color, so it doesn’t create enough interesting contrast.  Also, brown is “Dad” or “Mother Earth” so it’s more nurturing than distinguished; more safe than sexy.  Go for navy blue.  You’ll look sexy and classy.
