    • Jose Eber: Think of all the times you have been in a restaurant or at a party or a meeting and a woman has walked in to the room and you've hated her because she appears so perfect. She floats instead of walks. Her posture shows her self-confidence. Her clothes, her makeup and her hair are le dernier cri, the last word. You think she is absolutely beautiful. Then, because you can't stop staring at her, you get a better look. Her nose is too long, her mouth too big, her jaw too wide. She's very ordinary. In fact, you are prettier. So why did she take your breath away? Because her total look was created to give the illusion of perfect beauty. She is in control. You can be too, darling.

  • Quotes

    • Jose Eber: If you have inner beauty, it is much easier to find outer beauty. When you see yourself through gentler eyes, you'll see the whole world through gentler eyes. You will be able to look at what you once thought was a flaw and understand that it is a personal distinction. You will have the ability to correct the things you can and accept the things you can't. With a smile. You'll take pride in both your internal and external appearance.

    José knew what career to go in to when he was a child. And many people have benefitted from that decision. After moving to the US in the late 70's, José became, and is to this day, a trend-setter and a style icon. With his trademark hat and long hair, José has helped the glamourous become even more so, and the everyday woman discover their own glamour. His 1990 book "Beyond Hair: The Ultimate Makeover book" emphasized his belief in every woman's beauty. Throughout the book, he discusses how the every day woman can bring out her outer beauty with various tips of the trade. Along the way he also reminds the reader of inner beauty's importance to the total picture. The makeovers on every day women from all different backgrounds and approaches demonstrate the inordinate skill of him and his team. José ends the book challenging the reader to try to see themselves with "gentler eyes" and to take pride in both their inner and outer self. A wonderful reminder from this style icon...moreless
