Do you know anybody who is precisely, exactly like you; anyone who shares your every thought and inspiration? Neither do we. We know that you’ve heard it before, but you’re one of a kind. If you were in a stadium, surrounded by thousands of other people who resembled you, you’d still be special. Maybe it’s time that your appearance acknowledges the fact. Perhaps now is a good time to create a “signature” look, a style that people will associate with only you.

Hair

More than any other component, a new hairstyle can shake up your look. Seems ridiculous, doesn’t it? Out of the millions of people on the planet, surely there are thousands who wear the same hairstyle as you – and yet, it somehow manages to be “yours.” Ask your stylist which style and color will best flatter your face, hair type and skin tone. There’s a sweet spot somewhere between classic and funky that is easy to call your own. If you don’t want the cut to scream, “I’m not afraid to stand out!” play around with accessories, like headbands and clips to add the occasional bit of sass.

Makeup

We’re not kidding when we say that your aesthetician knows more about makeup than most people will ever learn. The idea is to play up the features of your face that you like the most. Remember Twiggy? The 1960s supermodel wore so much mascara that we wonder if she had trouble keeping her eyes open. Still, those eyes were part of her signature look. We’re not suggesting you use a trowel to apply your makeup each morning, but do ask your aesthetician for make-up tips that are sure to flatter.

Aroma

Did you know that scents have the ability to trigger memories because smell is the only sense that directly connects to the part of our brains that store emotional memories? Search around to find a scent that you adore, something that represents you, and make it your own. Like hairstyles, thousands of people may wear the same scent, but none quite like you.

Clothing

Ask yourself which colors you are naturally drawn to. If you had to choose one color from a Crayon box, what would it be? You’ve just discovered your signature clothing color. We’re not saying that everything you wear should be that shade, but consider sprinkling it throughout your wardrobe through scarves, belts, earrings, shoes and other accessories. Next, be honest with yourself about the style that mesmerizes you. Are you more drawn to the wardrobe of Katharine Hepburn, Grace Kelly, or Marilyn Monroe? Whichever style best suits your taste, build your own wardrobe around it. Naturally, you’ll want to throw in touches of flair, but let the basic style act as the foundation for what hangs in your closet.

The Sesame Street School of Repetition

The key to teaching something new is repetition. Don’t expect to show up to work in a man’s suit and immediately be confused with Diane Keaton. Time and repetition will implant your unique style into the minds of the people around you.
