Comeback Kid

Beauty and style expert Christopher Hopkins, aka "The Makeover Guy," has just written a book that could help you offer advice to baby boomers concerned about looking their best. Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45 (HCI Books, 2008) includes wardrobe advice, as well as tips for wearing the right hairstyle and makeup. Hopkins also helps you interpret what your female clients are saying. "I want something fun," he says, "means 'I want choppy texture.'" Learn to speak her language. —M.D.
