We all talk about how what’s important in life is what’s inside, and that the way you look has no indication on how capable you are at your job or anything else. However, you can’t deny that people, especially in the workplace, pay quite a bit of importance to image and how they portray themselves.
Konstantin Bogomolov is an artist and image designer from Latvia who has taken on an interesting project alongside his students at the International Education Centre “Bogomolov’ Image School”. They give personalized appearance and style “makeovers” to their clients, and the results speak for themselves, as all the people end up looking and feeling more confident as well as more professional.
Scroll down to see a few of their makeovers.
1. Jolanta, 39, is a postal operator
I have to admit, she looks somehow fiercer with this haircut.
2. Anna, 24, is a manager
This is such a flattering hair color on her.
3. Yuliya, 42 is an accountant
It’s strange how a haircut and filled-in brows can change a person’s face.
4. Brigita, 36 is a housewife
I’m usually a longer hair type of person, but these hairstyles make me consider chopping my hair off.
5. Lidia, 43, is an accountant
The hair! And look at those strong brows!
6. Daria, 35, is a marketing director
She now looks like a Paris fashion icon.
7. Ilona, 47, is a school teacher
Do you think her students were very confused when she went back to work after the makeover?
8. Nikolay, 31, is a freelance designer
Ahh, the power of a good haircut and a peacoat.
9. Vilma, 50, is a manager
Who said mixing patterns doesn’t look good?
10. Tatyana, 46, is a manager
And again, good hair and strong brows make the difference in almost every look.
11. Jūratė, 42, is a florist
Cool pants. I think I have a pair like that…
12. Daiva, 38, is a financial consultant
I love everything about her post-makeover outfit!
13. Irina, 42, is an interior designer
The designers knew what they were doing. The post-makeover clothes flatter her figure so much more.
14. Natalia, 41, is a housewife
She looks, overall, so much brighter.
While we all know that those people were just as good at their jobs before they got their makeover as they were after, it really shows you how important of a role our image plays.
