Frequently asked questions
You only get one chance to make a good first impression. First impressions really count and the better you look and feel the better the impression you'll make.
The first 10 to 40 seconds of meeting someone can make the difference on how people perceive you and they form an opinion very quickly.
- Colours, styles, image - why me?
When you know you look good, you feel more confident and self-assured. Creating the right look, however, takes work and thought, and there are times when most of us could do with some extra help.
- Am I presenting a confident, positive impression in every situation?
- Are there clothes in my wardrobe that I've never worn or that don't seem to go with anything else?
- Have I ever felt that people aren't taking me seriously, listening to me, offering me a well-deserved promotion or salary increase?
You only get one chance to make a good first impression - investing in one of our Looking Good courses could make all the difference.
- But I'm happy the way I am and with what I'm wearing. Why should I even think about changing?
Image is about bringing out the best, the real you, whatever the occasion. There are many reasons for coming to a Looking Good course:
- Changing circumstances or lifestyle - a new job, going back to work after a career break, getting married or remarried, retiring
- Realising that you haven't had a change in hairstyle, make-up or style of clothing for at least five, ten, fifteen years, or since your early twenties, forties, sixties, eighties
- You just feel you want a new image
- Or because you're fed up with well-meaning friends or family suggesting you try a new shop, a new colour, a new style.
- And how can I gain from putting a Looking Good course into practice?
Just a few reasons for wearing your most flattering colours and styles are:
- To build a versatile wardrobe, simplify shopping and save money
- To project a more positive manner and to be more relaxed, both of which affect other people's perception of you
- To look healthier, younger, more vibrant
- To look - and feel - successful. Hardy Amies once said: "A man should look as though he chose his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care, and then forgot all about them."
