Over the course of Women’s Month, we’ve been sharing content that inspires #PowerToYou. This means celebrating those big achievements and even the day-to-day victories that make us feel like we can do anything.
The truth is we could all use a boost every now and again, but wouldn’t it be great if we could feel it daily? Well, we can. From hairstyles to the way we speak and even our impact on others, here’s how you can bring #PowerToYou every day.
Embrace new looks and fresh hairstyles
The trendiest hairstyles always have a way of making us feel like a million bucks! Whether you’ve been eyeing out a fringe, long bob or even a stunning new shade of colour from Renew, branching out works a charm.
At the moment we’re still loving those darker, more wintery shades from our Perfect Colour range. If you’re interested in selecting one for yourself, click here. Where hairstyles for women are concerned, we strongly suggest paying careful attention to your face shape.
That way, you can make the most out of your features with a cut that truly celebrates YOU.
There’s nothing we love more than a confident woman who knows just how beautiful she is.
Choose your words carefully
Words have tremendous power. This is so true when it comes to the ones we speak to others. It’s even truer when it involves the ones we use on ourselves. Often, we are our own harshest critics so it’s important to remember that we are just doing the best that we can.
Be gentle on yourself and by speaking to your inner self with kindness and appreciation you will get to experience a newfound love for you. Where others are concerned, we should always consider how our words can make people feel. This means we need to avoid gossip and malicious talk that breaks fellow women down. After all, we should all be supporting each other.
Pay a compliment every now and again, especially when you find yourself thinking a good thought about someone. You could very well turn someone’s day around or give them something to like about themselves.
Strive to bring power to others
Bringing #PowerToYou often comes from empowering those around us. When you are a kind, confident version of yourself, you inspire others to do the same. If you set an example to fellow women that they should go after what they want, you’ll give females a chance to fulfil their dreams too.
It doesn’t always have to be huge acts to make a difference, it could even be something smaller. For example, sharing where you bought a dress that a friend complimented you on or giving advice to someone younger than you at the office.
In sharing our knowledge, we share our power, and this is something we all should be doing. By mentoring others, especially younger women, we can make sure that the next generation of South African females are bold, fearless and unstoppable.
Don’t be afraid to say it
How often do we bite our tongues for fear of speaking out of turn? If you experience or witness something that doesn’t sit well with you, you have every right to say something about it.
From discrimination to malicious gossip, you should let people know what you do and don’t stand for. It doesn’t have to be in a nasty way either. There are ways of speaking your mind without bringing down anyone else in the process.
By taking a stand and voicing your opinion, women around you will be encouraged to do the same.
Celebrate beauty in every shape and form
Who says we have to look and act a certain way? What really matters is how you feel about yourself. We are all beautiful in our own unique ways. This means that there isn’t one definition of beauty.
Why not accept and love yourself for who you are and celebrate what makes you beautiful? You have nothing to lose by practising self-love. In fact, you’ll be surprised at how much you gain. Then, go one step further and accept the women in your life.
Don’t see their beauty or success as a competition. Instead, celebrate it and let them know how proud you are of them. When we do this, we’re able to create a community of strong, empowered females.
