Actually they DO reflect the real person and not the person they pretend to be. The purpose of these makeovers is to show your true self to the world. She used to have many more testimonials but has taken them down to add other content, concentrating more on how to wear clothes and accessories for certain life events based on your personal palette.

Jennifer Butler doesn't just do appearance makeovers. She works with what she calls the essence of people. The personality and spirit as expressed in colors and style You can take her test on the website to get a sense of who you are. It's very different than any of those other season makeovers. I just retook the test and I am still a Summer, fortunately, since I'd hate to have to buy a new wardrobe! .https://jenniferbutlercolor.com/quiz-test/

Working with her totally changed my style. An in-person meeting lasts about three hours and you will leave with a binder full of diagrams, swatches and information. Watch some of the videos

Mariel Hemingway and Linda Gray are two of her clients

Her methodology sounds good, and effective, but the execution doesn't feel up to date at all. She seems to follow a template for each look.

What does a masculine guy look like?


How does a man "act masculine"?

If a man is the least bit domineering or has to have "the final say", ugh, just go away.

I'm no longer a young woman, but I think the makeover was well done, which I did not expect.

I love clean shaven, good-looking men where you can see the jawline.

As a lady I tend to prefer the long hair look.

ANy style changes that enhance some features can be welcoming. Even if that means wearing it long

Now facial hair...blah.

Had a friend do laser hair removal cuz he really did have beautiful facial skin. He didn't want that scuffy look. He has that porcelain skin with bright sparkling blue eyes...

It’s personal opinion what looks we would find attractive or masculine on a man.....but....

I would say looking masculine is a guy who is handsome & well groomed but a little “scruffy”....a facial shadow or his tie pulled a little loose when he is finishing his day....I love that & think it looks very masculine! Or his sleeves are rolled up on his shirt.....he was in a suit but he is being comfortable & relaxed...confident! Muscular is masculine too & usually shorter hair. Some guys can pull off longer hair & look good BUT most don’t brush it or condition it enough like we do....it’s not masculine to pay attention to your hair all day IMO.......so long hair on guys ends up looking scraggly & unkept....so I’d say short hair on guys is more masculine & looks better because of that.......

I doubt his new look will make any difference in his life. He is still the same man. He just has a better haircut and clean shaven face.

Now to attract women a guy needs a light pink interlock polo and a pink baseball cap.

Interesting about the rolled up long sleeves. I love that look, too.

Scruffy, though, just looks lazy to me, and it feels just awful against my skin.

If he could go back in time and a good result could be ensured, I would have loved it if my husband had his facial hair permanently removed decades ago. He says the same. No scruff in the morning or evening, how terrific that would be.

Was your friend's procedure something he had to repeat? Was it easy? How expensive?
