Polished Casual
Kristen Uhrich
44, freelance photographer

My style icon is: Charlotte Gainsbourg
Three adjectives that describe my look: sporty, young, carefree
When it comes to makeup: I'm a minimalist
How she wants to look: Creative and youthful but not age-inappropriate.
How she got stuck: A single mother of three with an on-the-go lifestyle, Kristen began pairing her jeans with her 12-year-old son's Converse sneakers and hoodies just to save time.

The Fashion Fix
A bright button-down with a thin sweater and menswear-inspired jacket is as easy to wear as a tee and hoodie. Racing-stripe cropped pants are a stylish alternative to boot-cut jeans; brogues let Kristen retire her son's sneakers without sacrificing comfort. "I'm very casual, but I still feel like myself in this," she says.

The Beauty Assist
Colorist Gina Gilbert of the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in New York City painted golden streaks over Kristen's grown-out highlights for a beachy look that won't need frequent touch-ups. By adding long layers, Domingo brought polish to her easy style. A moisturizing foundation evens out Kristen's dry skin. Sandy dabbed a creamy pink blush on her cheeks and lips for a fresh, unfussy effect.

Spirited Chic
Donna Arloro
44, compliance manager

My hair: makes me unique
When it comes to makeup: I'm lost
I am most beautiful when: I am comfortable.
If money were no object, I'd have more: colorful dresses in my closet
How she wants to look: Hip and laid-back but not messy
How she got stuck: Comfort and ease became paramount in a hectic routine of working/commuting/parenting, so Donna started wearing stretchy black or navy blue clothing and a pair of Vibram FiveFingers shoes every day (she has seven pairs!).

The Fashion Fix
The swingy, bright blue skirt lets Donna experiment with vivid colors, while a subtly printed top under a minimalist jacket shows off her petite figure. And though Donna won't give up her toe shoes yet, she loved how elegant her legs looked in these heels. "I'd wear them if I could kick them off after a few hours," she says.

The Beauty Assist
Donna's white streaks were looking dull; a purple-tinted shampoo was all it took to make them dazzling. By trimming her ends and adding a few discreet layers, Domingo gave her hair a more defined silhouette—without sacrificing fullness. Sandy showed Donna how a plum lipstick flatters her complexion and adds a pop of style. The rest of her makeup is simple: concealer, neutral eyeshadow, and brown eyeliner.

Eclectic Charm
Scarlett Long
61, landscape artist and herbalist

If I could wear one thing every day it would be: a baggy shirt
Three adjectives that describe my look: bohemian, layered, loose
My weight is the main thing that keeps me from looking the way I want to look
Anyone with: artistic flair looks stylish to me
How she wants to look: Earthy and natural but not dowdy.
How she got stuck: Working with plants and soil every day made Scarlett gravitate toward flats, comfortable tops, and elastic-waist pants in dark colors. Although she loves bold rings, her job requires getting her hands dirty, so she stopped wearing them.

The Fashion Fix
Scarlett loves mixing prints but wasn't sure how to pull it off. What makes this outfit work? The patterns in the blouse, skirt, and scarf don't exactly match, but the dark colors in each piece keep the ensemble grounded. Silver jewelry with colored stones and a beaded necklace complement the eclectic vibe but don't clutter the look. Finally, platform sandals add height without making Scarlett feel unsteady. "This outfit is a more modern version of me!" she says. "It's opened my mind to trying new things like the platform shoes. And the jewelry? Just my style."

The Beauty Assist
Scarlett's long hair had lost body, so Domingo took off six inches and added a few layers to bring back the bounce. Colorist Ashley Ferrett used a light brown semipermanent dye to give Scarlett's hair a healthy shine and tint her grays to make them look like natural highlights. A cream foundation and light bronzer make Scarlett's skin glow. Sandy also lined her upper lids with a brown liquid liner to open up Scarlett's gorgeous eyes without making her look "made up."

Creative Corporate
Dana Rich
25, magazine marketing coordinator

The best thing about my hair is: its rich brown color
Anyone with confidence: looks stylish to me
What I need are: heels and eye makeup to feel glamorous
Three adjectives that describe my style: classic, versatile, feminine
How she wants to look: Polished and professional but not ordinary
How she got stuck: After a few years in the working world, Dana settled into a default uniform of black pants and flats or heels. Her go-to accessory: pearl studs she's had since she got her ears pierced at age 4

The Fashion Fix
Black-and-white doesn't have to be boring once you master layering: Pair a collared button-down with a graphic sweater for a modern interpretation of the usual blazer and top. A winter white pencil skirt is a fresh alternative to the slim black classic. "I will definitely try mixing and matching more," Dana says.

The Beauty Assist
Sewn-in extensions, by stylist Amoy Pitters of Amoy Couture Hair in New York City, brought Dana's hair to a more versatile collarbone length. Domingo used a large-barrel curling iron to create waves. Dana likes to play up her eyes, so Sandy traced a thick black liner over her upper lashlines. A light bronzer enhances her flawless skin, and a matte deep purple lipstick is flattering, unexpected—and office-appropriate.

Sparkling Elegance
Vieroslava Gurunian
39, pharmaceutical sales rep

My style icon is: Carrie Underwood
I never leave the house without: foundation
Three adjectives that describe my look: bright, feminine, elegant
My lips are: my most attractive feature
How she wants to look: Glamorous and sexy but not flashy
How she got stuck: Overbleached hair and a closet full of hot pink, yellow, and bright blue combined for a more flamboyant effect than Vieroslava intended.

The Fashion Fix
A curve-enhancing (but not hugging) dress satisfies Vieroslava's need for color without going the Easter egg route. "In Czechoslovakia, all the clothes were brown, black, navy, or gray," she says. "When I came to America, I gravitated to pinks and yellows because I had never worn them before. Now I see that I can be more selective." An understated clutch and black heels anchor the look, and the statement necklace adds a bit of sparkle.

The Beauty Assist
Vieroslava has been lightening her hair with a box of "ash blonde" dye every four weeks since she was 19. The flat, one-tone effect looked unnatural and drained the color from her skin. Colorist Corinne Adams wove in darker golden shades to bring dimension back to Vieroslava's blonde, and Domingo cut off several inches of bleach-induced breakage to make her ends silky again. Sandy told Vieroslava to toss her pink eyeshadow and played up her deep-set eyes with a taupe eyeshadow and brown eyeliner instead. A creamy peach lipstick emphasizes Vieroslava's sensuous mouth while still looking subtle.
