Combating the Pressures of Social Media
Instagram is a photo-based platform giving individuals the ability to express themselves online. On the other hand, it has been linked with anxiety, depression, and a fear of missing out. Social media posts can also set unrealistic expectations and create feelings of low self-esteem. Shirley explains that while Instagram is a great platform to educate the audience about her Micropigmentation treatments, there is a pressure to be “Insta-perfect”.
On Instagram, we usually only see part of the picture–the curated, perfect side for other users to view. “There are so many filters and self-editing apps. Individuals compare their own appearances to those on Instagram, leading to poor self-esteem,” says Shirley. She explains that sometimes clients come in with the desire for a specific look they’ve seen online.
“Sometimes clients come in wanting a certain look from an Instagram post. However, it may not always suit their facial features and I have to explain why,” Shirley says. “I really want to help clients achieve their beauty goals. I always aim to work towards enhancing their beauty, rather than to make them look like somebody else. Achieving the most natural results is so important so their Micropigmentation looks natural.” Learn more " Thinning Hair Solution for Women"
Shirley tries to encourage her Micropigmentation clients to present photos for inspiration, rather than to completely replicate a look. “I make sure that they are not comparing themselves to others or trying to achieve a specific appearance that won’t suit them,” she says. “Instead, the photo should be used only as a reference to give a direction of what may work with what they already have. This not only makes them feel better but also allows them to choose something based on their unique features.” Shirley will continue making a positive impact on people’s lives for years to come.
