Congratulations on the decision to change your look. While we all know that it’s truly what’s on the inside that counts, the way you present yourself to the world can and does matter. Perhaps it's time to go forth with a new image!

During the next 30 days, you will:

  • Learn what works for you—and what doesn’t.
  • Take small steps toward big change.
  • Begin to feel better about your appearance, from the inside out.
  • Learn some professional tips and tricks for getting the most out of what you already have.

In the first 30 days of this journey, you will be developing a stronger, more established personal style—and that process will take time. While it's easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged, we’re here to support you every step of your style change. Soon enough, you’ll be more confident in your look, and best of all, you’ll still be you.

DID YOU KNOW? According to market-research firm the NFO Group, 47% of adults polled ranked their looks at a five out of 10. Wherever you fall on your personal scale, remember that looks aren’t just about the cosmetic, but about confidence!

Never really cared about my appearance before. I was also like its was inside that counts. I still believe that is true. Lately, i have become intrigued with the latest fashion and styles. So much so that I am actually listening and taking tips to create a signature look for myself. Its funny but i actually do feel more confident when i take the time to dress fashionable. oh I think i already know what works for my body.
