I am thinking of changing my look this is an older pic of me but its still fairly current to my present style.What kind of things would you consider changing on me ,just from the look fo the pic.I seem to have one eye higher then the other

I know what alot of you will think , this shows a lack of confidence blah blah blah...no thats not the case...I feellike i need a new style.

Hi Chillz,
congrats on the move. I like your style, i think its kind of funky. If you want to get contacts, i dont think thatyou will find a doctor who will be strongly adverse to prescribing them. I wear a contact every day of my life. However, i doubt you will have much luck finding someone to perform lasik on you. I dont think it is a good idea to do it. Why risk that one healthy eye that you have? One suggestion that I have for your look would be to dye it all one color? Maybe get rid of the bleached highlights that seem to be in your hair? Maybe a new hairstyle? Just some suggestions. I actually like your look.
Hope this helps a little!

You will not have a problem getting contacts. I like your glasses/frames but contacts are easy to wear and get. See your eye doctor and try some out. I've worn them forever.

Trust me, you don't want fashion advice from me but try contacts for fun.

Best wishes - Amy

Hey chillz

I gotta say mate, I think you look good, It's a modern look, you look like a few of my mates. Moreso when we go out.

If you wanna be a total chick magnet though you could try and look like me, the aging, worn down by kids hair receiding look, ha ha seriously,If you want to change your style just go out and try some new stuff on and if it's comfortable, as in you feel comfortale in it buy it.

I wear mainly sporty gear or long sleeve tops and combats, However sometimes just for a change I'll have a shave and sling a shirt on, other times I'll be vest and shorts, Vary your look to reflect moods etc but all in all make sure it feels right.

Just out of interest how tall are you, I'm a shortass and find (this will sound vain to you ladies but it's not, all us lads think like this ha ha) that if I work my upper body like hell in the gym I feel more confident in myself.

Good luck in the new city bro

Hi Chillz,

Wow, really that's a hard question because there are so many styles to choose from, but what I see is, you just want a "change" since your life is changing now and that is 100% NORMAL!!!

I just moved too and feeing a bit isolated since I don't know anyone in this immedaite town. The people I know are an hour drive away.

I think start looking through some styles for men magazine to see if there is something you like. You have such a happy upbeat expression in your face that I don't think you need to change anything too personal, just start learning a bit about style. Start looking at other guys in a critical sense of what style you would like to try. If it doesn't work, try something else! Changing a finding a style is very personal. If they still have "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" show on TV, WATCH IT to get some style ideas. Really, those guys are good and they really improve the look of the men. I like watching "What Not to Wear" but that is for women.

If Andy's suggestion doesn't work, get or borrow a cute little dog for a chick magnet :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

As for Lasik, no ethical doctor will do the surgery for someone with one eye. Who wants to take the risk! No doctor will prescribe me contacts either since they said I need to protect the only eye I have left. You can also go to Lenscrafters (or any other place that has really trendy frames) and try to check out some stylus glasses and if your perscription isn't too strong, you can go for the snazzy wrap arounds.

There is also bleaching your hair blond and making it stand up. Seems to be a popular style with the guys here, of all places, Southern Utah!!!!

Go get 'em!

Hi; all of the above!!! Her in OZ lads with thick black hair; have it short and spiked with very; very fine; blonde tips on the very tops of the spikes!! (A lot of trendy Asians started that look); maybe go for a lighter frame on your glasses; I totally agree with Christy; NO:NO:NO lasik and the operators shouldn't even think about it; also my specialist said NO to contact lens too; check out the styles in you new place that will give you a clue what's IN at the moment in that place; good luck; and when my hubby was single he used the borrow the dog trick and swears it's the best chick magnet; cheers Vera

Your hair appears to be on the dark side, so I would recommend lowlights. The lowlights will be about 2 to 3 shades lighter than your natural shade--not a blonde shade. Definitely have them foiled and not pulled through the cap. By foiling, you can have the lowlights placed exactly where you like.

I like the idea of the spike or messed up look. Depending on the hair products that you use, you can easily create different looks for different occasions. :wink:

Congratulations on the new job in the new city.

I agree with the previous posters, skip the lasik, depending on your eye maybe try out a contact, but you would be much safer with glasses.

Have you checked out the new titanium frames that just bolt directly into the lenses? You can hardly see them on, they just sort of float there and blend in. Then you would have vision correction, some protection and basically no frame to obscure your face.

Here is a hair suggestion no one has suggested yet. How about no hair. My husband's been shaving his head for over 10 years now, he's also been going bald since he was 15, which is obviously not an issue for you. You have cool hair.

We have a buddy who recently tried to cover his gray and it went very wrong. So he shaved his head to start over and it turns out he really likes it, plus no more bed head. He will probably grow it back out eventually but in the meantime he is enjoying his shaved dome.

I think you look fun and personable in your current picture but can understand wanting a change. I'd begin with hair and glasses to start with and go from there. Clothing is going to be dependent on your work's dress code and how you spend your time outside work. I'm sure you will find what works for you.

So are we going to get before and after pictures? :)

Take care,

DONT GO WITH EYE LASIK SURGERY....CAN'T AFFORD A MISTAKE! Not everything is fool proof with surgery and I've heard horror stories that us one eyers can't afford to take that risk......

Try a contact lens, I wear one when I go to special events other then that I wear my glasses because there can still be complications with contact lenses as well so we need to try and protect our good eye as much as possible. Try a new hair cut and put a lens in your good eye and see how you feel. Most places will give you a 30 day trail contact for free or at least next to nothing then you can see for yourself how you like the new look.

I enjoy having my glasses off my face it does make me feel better but yet I am also a bit more aware of my bad eye without my glasses on too so you'll have to be your own judge in the mirror.

good luck
