oth­ing beats look­ing in the mirror and get­ting a pleas­ant sur­prise. Yes­ter­day is gone. You have moved on. At Bet­tje­man’s in Orakei, you’d be for­given for think­ing that women go in and never come out. The trans­for­ma­tions wrought within the sa­lon are so ex­tra­or­di­nary that it’s hard to con­nect the be­fores with the af­ters. What hap­pened to that plain mousy lady with the oh-so-for­get­table hair? She’s now a rock star god­dess with con­fi­dence to burn. Grant Bet­tje­man has al­ways loved a good makeover. He be­lieves they’re es­sen­tial for main­tain­ing your grip on mod­ern times. Get­ting left be­hind in a style rut, with the same hair­cut and colour you’ve had for 10 years, is no fun for any­one. “From all my years of hair­dress­ing, I know that peo­ple can get trapped in a style and hair­dressers can be­come com­pla­cent. It’s im­por­tant to keep mov­ing for­ward with your look”, says Grant. Mov­ing for­ward means sit­ting in front of a mirror with a se­nior stylist who knows about face shape, col­oration and the up­keep com­mit­ment of hair styles.

“When we do a hair makeover we start with the shape of your face, the type of hair you have, your lifestyle and what you’re pre­pared to do each day to main­tain your look. Us­ing pic­tures, swatches and de­scrip­tions, we de­scribe our rec­om­men­da­tion very clearly. This is no shot in the dark. It’s an ex­er­cise in trust and ex­cite­ment based on years of top-level hair­dress­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.” There are a hun­dred rea­sons to pur­sue a makeover, in­clud­ing gain­ing ground in your ca­reer or sim­ply be­ing bored with your ap­pear­ance, but the ef­fect is the same for ev­ery­one: em­pow­er­ment, con­fi­dence and a re­newed sense of self-be­lief. At Bet­tje­mans, a 15 minute makeover con­sul­ta­tion with a se­nior stylist costs $50. How­ever if you de­cide to have the work car­ried out at Bet­tje­mans, this amount will be de­ducted from your even­tual bill. Bet­tje­man’s se­nior stylists are cred­ited on the mag­i­cal ‘af­ter’ im­ages you see on these pages – check them out and make your choice.
