The Power of Pretty® Advice

Personal Style Quiz: Discovering Your Image ProfileYou are a unique spirit and have your own idea about what makes you happy when you look in the mirror. One fun way to characterize who you are by how you look is through the process I call image profiling. Image profiling allows you to determine a consistent image objective. The first step in this assessment is to determine how you want to be perceived in relation to who you are. To be who you are and let people see who you are. Through this process, you will more easily achieve your unique expression of beauty.

As you go through the assessment, answer these questions according to the way you’d like to seen by others. Perhaps how you’ve been dressing represents more of the old you rather than the person you’ve become. Take a moment to really think about it and be honest. We are all becoming. Some of us are happy with how we are seen, and some of us might want to start anew. It might just be about letting go of old patterns of self-image.
