Nail Time

Personal grooming is as important as what you wear.  It reflects who you are and how you take care of yourself on a very human level.

In an audition, as in most aspects of life, we are typically seen before we are heard. As a result, people hear what they see.  

Assessments are made in the first two seconds of meeting someone, according to Malcolm Gladwell's BLINK, and those assessments do not change.  As actors, let's make the most of those two seconds.

In the next few weeks we will give cool styling tools to make the most of those two seconds.  This week we are literally putting the power in your hands: groom your nails!  Buffing for guys and trending nail colors of 2016 for ladies (which are already in Impact Styling's stash):
