Will the Real Anne Please Stand Up?

This is revealing!

My daughter Anne dresses true to her natural Type 2 beauty in my Dressing Your Truth program.

For a fun and eye-opening experience, she decided to dress true to all 4 Energy Types. The results show just how powerful it is to know your Type of beauty and dress in harmony with it!

The 4 Types of Anne

The 4 Types of Anne

We styled Anne in all 4 Types of beauty. Remember them from your Beauty Profiling course:

  • The Bright, Animated Type 1 Woman
  • The Subtle, Soft Type 2 Woman
  • The Rich, Dynamic Type 3 Woman
  • The Bold, Striking Type 4 Woman

Anne chose clothes that harmonize with the energy of each Type of beauty, as well as jewelry, makeup, and hairstyle.

(I want you to know what a big deal it was for Anne to straighten her hair—because she never does that! She says she feels like she’s killing a part of herself when she takes the flat iron to her natural curls!)

Take a look at what happened…

Anne styled as a Bright, Animated Type 1 Woman

You can see that Anne doesn’t look bad in this cute outfit. But the animated print is a little too much for her and the bright colors bring out irregularities in her complexion. How Anne feels in this outfit:

I think adding a little bounce in my hair, as well as the lighter clothing, helped soften my look and felt the closest to my Type 2 wardrobe. But the bright colors and high animation steal the show. I felt scattered and ungrounded.”

Anne styled as a Rich, Dynamic Type 3 Woman

 

This edgy style looks great on a dynamic, TYPE 3 woman. But on Anne, it just looks overdone. How Anne feels in this outfit:

I felt harsh and my bones ached. My body couldn’t keep up with the movement on me. I felt a rush inside myself that was not honoring of my natural methodical nature.”

Anne styled as a Bold, Striking Type 4 Woman

 

I know a lot of women who would look amazing with that bold red lip color. But it just washes Anne out! How Anne feels in this outfit:

I think I look about 10 years older than I am—trying to be a ‘sophisticated business woman’ and failing! I felt rigid and stiff and the black eyeliner was literally making my eyes burn. And it’s the same formula as the Type 2 eyeliner I use—just a different color!”

Anne styled as a Soft, Subtle Type 2 Woman

Ah, home sweet home! I felt peace once my curls were back! The soft colors and design lines in the clothing felt like a warm fuzzy blanket I could finally relax in! This is me! My body felt honored and strong and balanced.”

More important than Anne’s appearance is how she feels. You can see in her face when she seems overwhelmed by an outfit, or looks uneasy and uncomfortable.

But once she’s back here in her Type 2 element, you can see she looks confident and secure in who she is.

Why Anne’s experiment matters to YOU

Every day, you get up and get dressed.

Consider the possibility that you may be putting looks on your body that make you look silly, old, harsh, or just not your best.

Anne is naturally very beautiful. But some of these outfits don’t do anything for her. Some of your outfits don’t do a thing for you!

    This is amazing!! I saw the Type 2 photo and I loved it! I love texture; The type 1 outfit looked liked you were ‘trying too hard”, Type 3 I also loved but I’m a type 3, on you however, it looks a wee bit harsh, I only noticed the outfit, and not ‘you’; Type 4 outfit looked “clinical”.

    I love this site!! I am new, and still learning. I now understand why I had so many clothes in my closet that I didn’t wear but I never knew why. I recently retired and started buying clothes with a whole different look. However, I wasn’t happy wearing what I had. I thought it was because I’m also ‘older’. I was getting depressed. I didn’t want to face it.
    After getting on to DYT site, I look good once again. I now take a photo of myself wearing an outfit I’m not sure of and if I don’t like it, I get rid of it. I already have all the accessories, I just couldn’t match the outfit to it. All because I had too many types of clothes hanging in my closet. :)

    With my pared down closet, I find it so easy to put outfits together. I’m still in the process of building it up but it is amazing.

    Keep up the good work! You guys rock!!

    Wow, what a great illustration of dressing your truth!

  • Nancy Hall

    Carol, this is so helpful! Knowing what works is a bit of a challenge for me – I tend to dress for comfort, style and colour. But, that doesn’t mean it looks good! ; ) I can see how much more complimentary #2 is. Kudos to your daughter for modelling for our benefit! Thank you!

  • Elizabeth Goodman

    Very revealing. Your daughter’s Type 2 picture is by far the most attractive…

  • Lauri

    Loved the visual transformation as well as the description of how Annie felt in each of the the types; great information and illustration. I am going to try this experiment in the privacy of my own home :).

  • Brenda Spadoni Youngblood

    This is amazing! I can really see the differences once they’re pointed out. However, still having trouble determining my own beauty type. I realize that we all have a little of all types in us, but I just can’t seem to find the dominant type for me. I’ll keep plugging along at it! Thank you, Carol Tuttle, for sharing your findings!!

  • dragica

    I think she doesn’t look bad as no 3 but no 4 is a definite no!

  • Wilma Murphy

    You did a great job with your daugher

  • Jennifer Gilbert Sams

    Two is definitely the best… however, I think she looks great in three, as well… except that she needs to wear her hair as in two. One is just… okay. Four (to me) makes her look
    severe and kinda threatening… lol. You are beautiful in all, Anne… but two is you. (Guess you knew that already… ;) )

    Hello DV, it is possible that you are not interpreting something correctly. This is an intuitive program and trusting your intuition about which energy is most dominant in you is the first step. You will find signs of all 4 Types – we consist of them all, but one will be your dominant energy movement and support you emotionally, physically and mentally. Thank you for the question.

      At first glance I was thinking I was a T3 but I came to feel more intune with the idea that I am a T2 and I behave as T3 in my life as a manager, instructor, mom and wife by necessity. What helped me most was to think of how I really was as a young child and to further think of the compliments I have been paid in my life and what has moved me most. Looking back, as curious as I often was as a child I was calm in my approach, I loved to share experiences and to feel flow in my life. I never had trouble being quiet when necessary and often liked to be with animals and feel their calmness (I now realize that was reflecting my own calmness). My mother has always complimented me for making others feel comfortable and accepted. My husband has pointed out many times that I give our sons excuses when things don’t go well (smoothing things over). Students who have thanked me and recognized my efforts have made me feel most loved and accepted…. I don’t mind being part of a team, I always manage my department at work in such a way as to never ask anyone to do something I wouldn’t do… but I have often felt most hurt and most irrelevant when overlooked or taken for granted. So although I have often been a leader, get lots done, multitask with the best of them and sometimes have to curb my reactions….. I am a 2 (and I think a 3 secondarily). Hope that helps.

    • Marianne

      My entire family thinks I am a t2, soft, nurturing and calm. I believe I am a 4. I’ve got strong opinions, can be bossy, sharp wit and sharp tongue. Could I be a chameleon? Lol

  • Guest

    This is beautiful. But I am at a loss. I am relatively certain that I am a type 4, but I have naturally curly hair, and very seldom wear it straight. Is it possible to have curly hair and dress type 4, honoring both? The only curly hair I see is on every type other than 4. Please tell me what my options might be.

    She’s gorgeous in all these outfits!

  • Priscilla Jacobson

    My story disappeared?????

  • JanetMPatterson

    Quite enlightening.

  • disqus_de1eWWrhH2

    I’ve tried hard but my intuition just isn’t able to make the leap into this at all. Mind you, I am naturally sceptical, logical and analytical, so maybe I am a type 4!!

    • Susan Stokes

      I am a Type 4/1. I had a really hard time figuring out what I was because I could a little bit of me in each type. Then my daughter sent me The Child Whisper and I still wasn’t sure until I was reading the type 4 child. It really resonated with me and I could see that was my dominate type.

  • Lynne

    So enlightening. Even though Anne and the outfits are beautiful, I find it painful to see her dressed in the wrong types. (Especially as a fellow type 2.) You can feel the strain on her energy, like she’s being pushed to be someone she’s not. This has me understand why I don’t wear certain perfectly nice things in my closet, and why something feels off when I or my friends dress to the wrong type. Thank you for this!

  • crissie

    Please bring this live to the UK as a Roadshow – I think it would be VERY popular! But please can I be one of your make-overs!!! :-)

  • http://alittleitchy.blogspot.com/ brista

    This is difficult before me because she looks nice in all four pictures. I guess I just don’t “get” it because I still don’t know what I am and aside from contemporary hair changes for some of the participants, I can’t see much difference in many of the before-and-afters.

  • Cherry McDonell

    I would like to see T4 hair styles. Anything besides straight?

    • Vickie Jacobson

      Me too. Something more on the wild side. I like doing different things. Different styles. I get bored with one style.

  • marycatherinehenning

    I feel stuck between T1 and T2. I feel as if the T2 movement is more me, but my personality traits are absolutely T1. Which one is right for me?

  • Mary A. Daniels

    I’m pretty sure I’m a “perfecter” T-4, but make stacks like a T-2– and am horrified by most of the outfits you have shown for T-4. What have you got against us??
