I love the Dressing Your Truth Program. It is a great way to connect the unique energy of WHO you are with WHAT you wear.
After I came to a confident decision of what my Energy Profile was (you can read about Energy Profiling here), I started down the road of learning how to express my bright and animated nature with my clothes, my hair, makeup and accessories. I will say that I am still on this journey, but it is a journey that is a lot of fun! Of course, I would be saying that as a Type 1.
I had been living in Utah for 9 months before I finally made the 20 min drive to the Dressing Your Truth Salon. For all my fellow DYTers (Dressing Your Truthers) around the entire world who would give anything to live so close to the one of a kind DYT Salon and Clothing Store, I apologize to you for taking so long to get there. The Salon is unique in that the hairdressers are trained to understand each of the 4 types and honor that in how they cut, color and style your hair.
My hairdresser was Nicole Kinateder. A-ma-zing! She is a Type 4, and very precise and thorough. I came in saying, “Just fix this” motioning to everything around my face, and she did! I didn’t realize until after my haircut, what a difference it makes! I can’t believe I thought I could get away with “trying” to Dress My Truth, without addressing the largest accessory (my hair) that surrounds my face. After my hair was done, I didn’t see that drab hair that takes away from the brightness in my face, I actually felt like I SAW my face. I saw my eyes and I saw ME!
Nicole took the time to teach me how I could specifically style my hair and maintain it for 2-3 days without having to do it again, which is a great time saver as a homeschooling mompreaneur.
So my Big reveal to you all…
The hair was a little big for me then so I had to work on being okay with teasing it, but just not too much. A few days later my hubby took so photos of me that I feel are really a reflection of both my inner and outer beauty. (see below) It is nice to feel that they are both matching now. 🙂
I think as women, we don’t know how to connect who we feel we are with how we choose to dress ourselves. Some of us carry deep complexes about spending time and money on ourselves. I know that I held beliefs about myself not being worth the investment. These beliefs often showed up in being envious and judgmental of others who did take the time to honor their beauty in this physical way. We are very willing to sacrifice ourselves for others. This is a great God-given gift to us women, to be so willing to give of ourselves. I am learning the lesson, that in honoring myself, I bring honor to others. I see that in letting my light shine, I allow others to do the same.
Now I fully embrace this woman that I have always been for 32 years, I choose to let myself shine and live more true to my nature than ever before in my life. I am glad I am learning this lesson now, because I have 3 daughters and I intend on them being comfortable with who they are, inside and out, from a young age because they are meant for great things!

If you are interested in learning more about Dressing Your Truth you are welcome to click the book and it will take you through to the website (I am an affliate, just FYI). If you get the course I do get a little kickback. But regardless I would love to hear about YOUR experience with coming to know the Beauty of You!
