Do You Care About The Way You Look?




About The Way You Look?

Enough to post questions about your looks online and get some honest feedback?

How many times have you stood in front of your mirror and said, "Hmm, something is not quite right."

"Maybe I should do something with my hair."

"I wonder how I would look blonde."

"Would that red dress look good on me?"

"Should I change the shape of my glasses?"

Those types of questions prompted the developer of MyLooksOnline to open a web site in search of the TRUTH. Why? Because you don't always know what types of responses you'll get when you ask friends or family members, "How do I look?"

Can you trust their loving replies?

Maybe everybody is just trying to be nice, or maybe they don't want to hurt your feelings, but family members and friends don't always tell the "whole" truth.

So how do you know if that hairstyle makes your nose look too big? Who will tell you honestly if you look too fat in that white pant suit?

For an absolutely honest opinion from people who are just trying to help, try mylooksonline.com.

You send in your photo and wait for people to respond. Every time somebody offers a comment, you get a response in your email.

The nice thing about MyLooksOnline is that uploading your photo is FREE, and the responses you get are FREE. You do have an option of ordering a detailed summary that breaks down the replies into age and gender (costs only $2.99), but, other than that, the questions and responses are completely free.

Categories where you can submit your photo and question include: General Looks; Hairstyles; Makeup; Body Shape & Weight; Fashion, Clothes & Accessories; Skin & Complexion; Facial Features; and Piercings & Tattoos.

Don't be afraid to post your photo. The sight is geared toward honesty and does not accept obscene or rude responses. What you will get is a quality reply to your question. Be prepared though, because sometimes the opinions may be brutally honest. You wanted the truth though, right?

You can read more about what initiated the website owner's desire to help others by reading her blog HERE.

In the meantime, take a photo of yourself, upload it to MyLooksOnline and get some honest feedback about your looks. Or, offer your own opinions to people who are waiting to hear your honest response.

As an aside, after I lost all of my hair due to chemo from breast cancer, I posted a photo of myself without hair at MyLooksOnline asking for opinions about what I should do now that I'm bald. You can read the opinions I received HERE. I would appreciate more comments if you care to make them.
