Karen our Beauty Therapist at Guys n Dolls Hair Beauty Tanning Salon has been lent an amazing book from 1961 called ‘The Book of Beauty’ by Eileen Allen, (older than her!) We have found it fascinating as well as funny, but one thing that cannot be denied is Eileen’s philosophy on THE SECRET OF CHARM…
“It isn’t easy to cultivate such charm, but it can be done. Don’t cringe from life, look as if you love it, as if you expect something wonderful to happen, and then the chances are that it will. Pay plenty of attention to your make-up & clothes and then forget your appearance. Nothing is more off-putting than a girl who is constantly peeping in the mirror to do running repairs, or patting her hair. And if a man has no time for you because your nose is shiny, he would have disappeared anyway.
Your voice is vital. Many a plain woman is regarded as devastatingly attractive because she has a beautiful voice and many a pretty girl ruins her social life as soon as she opens her mouth! Cultivate a soft, friendly voice & smile as you talk. You’ll give the impression of being relaxed & at ease – much admired qualities.
Good health is important too. If, when you go to a party, all you can think of is how long it will be before you can get to bed… Better not to go at all! Lassitude & fatigue have a depressing effect on others. Mental alertness & vitality attract.
In a nut shell, the power to attract means making the most of yourself and then forgetting yourself & concentrating on others. It means expecting to like people – women as well as men! (The woman who does not like her own sex & has no women friends, does not as a rule have the type of attraction for men that endures)
So remember, you too can attract men, whatever your looks, whatever your age. Used selfishly, this power is a power of self destruction, but used wisely it can bring great happiness & add zest to everyday life”
So in a nutshell, be a Audrey Hepburn not one of the Kardashians. Class over social media. Remember beauty is only skin deep, it’s nice to be nice and have a good heart. Treat people the way you want to be treated.
It’s also nice to feel nice we have a wide range of hair beauty and tanning treatments to help you along your way.
