what to know
This archetype represents you as you currently relate to your Core Style. During our lifetime we all will likely take on each one of the six stylist archetypes. As we grow and evolve as individuals, it only makes sense that our style - how we visually communicate who we are - will grow and evolve as well. And it’s in these transitions and evolutions that we tend to shift archetypes.
So, keep this in mind: Where you are now is not necessarily where you’ll always be. And you, my friend, are the one who has the power to shift your archetype if you wish to do so. But first let’s learn a little bit more about where you are now.
as a stuck stylist you…
» Found your style at some point in your past and have held onto it since then
» Like to know what’s coming and operate better when you have clear direction
» Are hesitant to leave something that’s working if you are unsure of the other options in front of you
keep in mind
» You want to allow your Core Style to evolve alongside you. Often stuck stylists are ladies who once had their style figured out but then they stuck with it only to find their style no longer fits the person and lifestyle they now embody.
» If you’ve found your Core Style once then you can do it again. I have no doubt in that. But it will take some time and a bit of experimentation to get it just right for who you are now. You don’t have to do everything all at once. You can take on however much you’re comfortable with at a time!
where to focus
your focus area: who you are + what you like now
The key for you as a stuck stylist is to let go of what you think you know so you can focus on the present.
Spend some time and attention on clearly articulating who you are now. What is it that you value and want to communicate with your style? What is true about the woman you are now?
Then do the same for the aesthetic you’re drawn to now. It may look similar to what you had before. Or it may look wildly different. There is not a wrong answer here. But you do need to be open to exploring and allowing yourself the freedom to figure out what looks capture your eye now. Without judgment. Without worry as to how they do or don’t compare to your old style.
You now have clarity on your Core Style archetype. You’ve also have insight on where to put your focus.
Now it’s time to get started and take some action … because a parked car never moves and simply thinking about your true Core Style isn’t going to make it appear for you!
