What are your Feng Shui elements?

Feng Shui is an ancient and proven system for balance and harmony. Billy Yamaguchi gives you everything you need to find out which Feng Shui elements are the strongest for you right now and how to choose the hairstyle, makeup and clothing that will bring out your true inner self.

--Figure out your elements from your lifestyle and personality
--Find out whether you need to balance, harmonize or enhance your elements
--Learn which hair lengths, cuts and highlights are the best for your elements and face shape
--Discover the best makeup and hair color for your elements and skin tone

You'll end up with hair and makeup that reflect who you really are-your outer appearance will finally express your true self.

Most hairstylists are trained in a particular cut and give this same haircut to all of their clients, regardless of differences in lifestyle and personality. Now Billy Yamaguchi, internationally known hairstylist to the stars, helps you bring the principles of Feng Shui to your hairstyle, makeup and fashion, so your look will express your true self.

Using the five elements of Feng Shui-Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood-Billy shows you who you really are in the world, and then designs your haircut, color, makeup and fashion choices to really express your unique style.

For example, the Fire element tends to be passionate and adventurous, while the Metal element is more precise and goal oriented. While everyone has all five elements in their nature, two elements are predominant at any given time. Once you know what they are, your hairstyle, makeup and clothing can be used to enhance, balance or harmonize your elements. You've never felt so natural, comfortable and self-expressed in your own skin before.

For the first time, you will have a simple way to communicate your personality to your hairstylist and to figure out what makeup colors and fashion styles suit you best.

You've never felt so natural, comfortable and self-expressed in your own skin before!

From Publishers Weekly:

Yamaguchi owns five California hair salons and is a feng shui devotee. Yet he runs into difficulty with this attempt to explain how understanding feng shui can help a woman alter her physical appearance for the better. Traditionally, the ancient Asian philosophy assists people with placing objects in the home in such a way that energy (chi) flows and creates a positive environment. Applying that discipline more widely, Yamaguchi says we should consider our bodies as homes. By placing our hair and makeup in a certain way, chi will flow through our souls. Feng shui, Yamaguchi explains, is based on the belief that each individual's personality is dominated by two of five elements: fire, earth, metal, water and wood. After readers take a rather involved 17-question quiz, they'll find their most dominant personality elements. They must then muddle through two chapters of jargon and complicated charts to determine the strength of each element in their personality, and then flip to the paragraphs throughout the book relating to their score to determine which hair style, hair color and makeup will bring forth their best physical traits. There are far easier ways for a woman to get advice for looking her best; indeed, the book's latter chapters, where Yamaguchi straightforwardly explains makeup and hair techniques, are its most useful sections.
