Nyssa Green, founder of The Green Room Agency, shares how to stay current.
When women sit in the chair of Nyssa Green, founder of The Green Room Agency, it’s change that’s on their mind. “A lot of clients over 40 ask to update their look. At some point, they realize that they’re wearing the same colors, clothing, and hairstyle they’ve had for years, and it’s time for a change.”
That openness to experimentation often leads to the most satisfied clients. “The people that are happiest with their results are always the ones that are most open to our suggestions,” says Green.
The artistic training of The Green Room Agency artists enables them to create looks that are both current and complementary. Whether clients are re-entering the workforce, getting back into the dating scene or preparing for a reunion, “our work gives people new confidence and an esteem boost that’s hard to get from a mall makeover. Oftentimes it’s just a matter of seeing yourself from another point of view, and sometimes it’s a complete transformation,” Green says.
She is still surprised by how many clients come to her wearing the same makeup and hairstyles they’ve worn since their 20s and 30s. Green advises those over 40 to stay away from most frosted makeup, play with new products, tools, and treatments, and enjoy updating their beauty routine with guidance from a professional.
“My work is all about bringing out the best in everyone we work with. Studies show that how a person looks is directly related to how they feel and we focus on making them look their very best on every level,” Green says.
