Consider the Benefits of a Post-Divorce Makeover

Many things change after divorce, and your appearance may be one of them. There are some issues that may negatively affect your looks and health, but you can combat these problems with a simple post-divorce makeover. You should find out the benefits of changing your look, and then consider some celebrities who have apparently done the same.

Why Get a Makeover After Divorce?

By getting divorced, you are making a major change in your life. You are getting a fresh start, so it makes sense to reflect this in your appearance. You are no longer being dragged down by someone you do not want to be with, so why not also get rid of that haircut or clothing style your ex liked so much on you? It is time for a change, and you can do this with a quick trip to a salon or mall. You will find your confidence will soar after you change your look for the better, which is an added bonus.

Of course, after divorce, you will likely be looking for someone new to have a relationship with. You may have gotten away with wearing older styles of clothes and not keeping up your looks while you were married. After all, many people get comfortable in any long relationship. But now that you are on the market again, you need to try to present yourself well. This may require a new cut or style for your hair, new clothes, and different makeup if you are a woman getting divorced.

How Should You Change Your Look?

Now that you know the reasons for a makeover, you need to decide what's right for you. Women are often best served by going to a salon for spa treatments, manicures, and pedicures. You can also go to a department store to get a makeover for free, since associates at the beauty counter are eager to show off the makeup they are trying to sell. Getting clothes that fit well, touching up any highlights in your hair, or even getting a completely new hairstyle, are some other ways for you to change your look.

Men can also benefit from a post-divorce makeover. Go to a salon to get more than just a trim. Find out what the latest hairstyles are, and ask professionals what would look good with your face shape. Then take a trip to the mall for some clothes that look good on you, preferably in a different style than the one you have had for years. After all, you likely want to attract someone different from your ex-wife, so it makes sense to go with a new look.

Kate Gosselin is one celebrity who got a hair makeover after her divorce, since her short hair was made longer with extensions. Elisabeth Moss dyed her hair blonde and cut most of it off after her divorce from Fred Armisen. Ashlee Simpson apparently did the same after divorcing Pete Wentz, and even Pete got his own long hair chopped off shortly after the divorce.

While a divorce lawyer cannot help you get a makeover, he or she can provide some support while also helping you deal with the legal issues you will face. If you are ready for a divorce, call Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C.
