The Concept of Beauty
The concept of beauty has always given me food for thought. I've always wondered what exactly is beautiful and what is not. Some people are not exactly attractive but still have a charm or attraction in them. Is beauty on the inside or on the outside? Inside; it is the heart and soul that beautifies a person while others may consider the appearance or facial attraction as beauty. Is beauty natural or can be artificially created? Let us talk about these aspects of beauty.For an apple cheeked women, hair has always been an important aspect of beauty. Although hair styles and hair colors go on changing from time to time when hair extensions come in fashion, they can be found in all styles and colors as portrayed by pop stars such as Beyonce Knowles who was seen trying hair extensions. In Eastern Europe and Asia, long hair is a major constituent of beauty as women with long hair are considered more beautiful which shows how beauty varies from culture to culture. Different hair styles and haircuts can be used to make the face look slimmer or to make women appear younger. Obviously, there are different hairstyles appropriate for different ages.Nowadays it is in normal for women of more than thirty years of age to keep grey hair and not to use hair dyes.Hand and nails can play a major role in making someone look pretty. Pedicure manicures and nail fashion which are the other names of painting nails using different colors, designs is becoming very popular these days.. Red nail varnish is in fashion and many women especially teenagers are following this trend, the trend originated from the era of marlin Monroe. Movies play a major role in establishing what is meant by beautiful during certain time. For example, many women idealize different film characters or movie stars and try to be like them. It has been said that most women are never satisfied with themselves and will try different trends and fashion to look beautiful without thinking if it suits them or not. They will copy celebrities and try to look like them. The youth also look up to their role models and follow what they are wearing and what they wear becomes fashion.Most people say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and everyone has a different image of beauty is being yourself and being what you want to be, dressing the way you want to dress, and being confident about yourself. Beauty comes from the inside rather than from physical appearance.Fashion always varies in nature besides being short lived. When a fashion is in full swing, it is visible in what we wear, designs of our clothes, hair styles, nails, etc. No doubt, fashion is a way of making oneself appear beautiful but everyone has his own concept and definition of beauty. Some people say that real beauty is the beauty of face while other think those sterling qualities of head and heart constitute the real beauty. Some hold the view that real beauty lies in the face of a man because soul secretes the face as a shell-fish secretes its shell. Face is the index of the mind. However, a thing of beauty is a joy forever because truth is beauty and beauty is truth.
