May and June are months for new beginnings. Brides walk down the aisle every year in June, the most popular month for weddings. Students finish school and graduate from high school and college. People start new jobs or interview for new opportunities. All of this planning and striving towards future goals of personal and financial success requires them to put their best foot forward. They'll invest in education, they'll invest in a new professional clothing, and they'll invest in plastic surgery?
Beautiful people are more successful - this is a fact that has been proven by numerous studies and experiments. They make more money over the course of their lifetimes. They attract more people to them socially and professionally. They have more opportunities to meet other successful people who have their own opportunities. Why? Because all of us enjoy looking at attractive people.
Employers enjoy looking at attractive people too, and attractive people tend to earn more money for their employers. This is why we dress up for interviews and try to look good because we know it's an advantage. All things being equal, an employer will pick a good looking job candidate over an unattractive one. It may even sway him when all things are not equal. It's not fair, but it's true.
Beauty is an advantage everywhere. Dr. Randy Thornhill of the University of New Mexico found in his studies that an attraction to symmetry is universal in both the animal kingdom and the human one. In the same way that scorpion flies with more symmetrical wings find it easier to mate, so do people with symmetrical faces and symmetrical bodies. Perfectly symmetrical faces are very rare as are perfectly symmetrical bodies. We talked about that when we discussed the spectrum of breast shapes and sizes.
Another factor in this is confidence. When we feel like we look our best, we are more confident. People respond to confidence even when it's the simple "Fake it 'til you make it" kind, but when we know we look good, we hold our heads higher and walk with more purpose. Confidence is a huge asset in an interview or a new job.
A recent article in Allure magazine highlighted the growing trend of giving plastic surgery as a gift for graduation. Why not? Many young people can't afford to invest a lot of money in their personal appearance, especially when they have student loans and beginners' salaries, so their parents or relatives give them the opportunity to make themselves more like to attract success. It's exactly the right time of life to gift opportunity, and it's hard to deny the impact a more beautiful appearance may have on their lives going forward.
