Visagism is related to the expression of your personal image and personality. Often it just appears as a list of rules of aesthetic harmony, but it’s much more comprehensive! Therefore, we invited the visagist Luísa Fregonezi, from Cabelo’s Hair Peluqueria, who will explain the concept and expand the idea that one has of it. Follow:
what is visagism
Visagism is a concept that encompasses everything visual, according to Luísa. Therefore, it can be used in several areas, from medicine to architecture. In the case of personal image, “it helps beauty professionals to create a unique image for the person, within what they want to express”, says Luísa.
If a beautiful image is one that speaks about you, it is necessary for the visagism professional to know elements of your personality and what you want to communicate. Furthermore, what can influence this image is:
- Haircut: There are lines and shapes in hair that have the same communication for everyone. For Luísa, it is through their employment that the desired image is transmitted.
- Hair color: the same goes for hair colors – you can work with your visagist on the coloring according to the feeling you want to express.
- Makeup: just like haircuts and hair coloring, make-up, with its lines, shapes and colors, is also an artistic means of expressing your being.
- Eyebrow: there are people who say, for example, that for square faces, the only possible eyebrow shape is arched. That’s not how it works, explains Luísa, because your will and happiness are more important than rules.
- Glasses: they are also elements of your image that can communicate for you. But remember, again, that visagism is not a box of rules. Who said that there is an ideal model of glasses for each type of face?
In short, real beauty exists when there is an integration between how you feel and how you see yourself. For Luísa Fregonezi, this alliance breaks any rule of aesthetic harmony to which visagismo is often reduced.
Is there an ideal cut for every face type?
According to Luísa, the answer is a resounding no: “Who said this is true?”, she comments. It is more important for the visagist to know about your profession, how you perceive yourself and your daily life, for example, than about your face type.
According to Luísa, it is obvious that the features of the face are taken into account, but this is not the determining factor for a beautiful image. For her, “a beautiful image is one that talks about you, that makes you happy. So I will never stipulate what will be done, everything is discussed together with the client”.
