Mirror mirror on the wall…
Your friend and/or your enemy.
After years of watching clients sit in my chair, talk about their hair, their frustrations with it, the things they like, don’t like or don’t want to change. There is always a moment when you notice how a person sees themselves in a one-dimensional mirror. How this flat perspective can be deceiving to the person on the other side.
First, most people do not get this flat view, or see you when your chin is down or when you’re looking at yourself with a tilt of your head, focused on things you don’t like. With mirror’s and photograph’s we build our ideas of how we look and yes to some degree they are true.
This view is hardly ever animated with a true smile, a look of happiness, compassion, or eyes filled with moment. Which is how the rest of the world gets to see you. From the side, from the back, from all the angles and more than that … you … caught in a moment; whatever that moment may be. These moments are always a perspective mostly unseen by you.
I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.
I wrote this post ages ago not ready to publish it when I saw this video it completed my thinking.
