No doubt, some people feel more confident, when they look as they want themselves to look- it’s a psychological aspect.

If you’ve watched the movie “Bala”, you can better understand how looks affect the level of confidence. It is the story of a young bald person, who was very confident in his school and college days, but then he went bald; he started feeling nervous about his appearance and that resulted in a lack of confidence everywhere. He tried everything possible to get his hair back but to no avail. Eventually, he had to accept himself as he is.

Well, It was just to convey how his confidence was connected to his look. Although, it is not applied in every area.

For example, A person who is an expert in his niche but looks ordinary can feel confident at his workplace or where his knowledge is recognized but the same person can feel uncomfortable in socializing, if several people there, talk about a person’s look. And to fit into such gatherings, he/she will try different beauty products.

Until yesterday, beauty was only bound to a film star or celebrity. The phenomenon has changed. Now almost everyone is well aware of his/her appearance or look. The rising demand for beauty products or services has opened the door for new brands or experts (influencers).
