"I still think people will find out that I'm really not very talented. I'm really not very good. It's all just been a big sham." Quote unquote. Michelle Pfeiffer
might have said this but her rave reviews certainly wouldn't second
that! She is one actress who has proved herself to be versatile, from
her role as the sexy, sultry Catwoman, to dowdy Frankie in 'Frankie and
She received her first academy award in 1988 for 'Best Supporting
Actress', for her role in Dangerous Liaisons and to date she has won 3
academy awards for Best Actress! Now that hardly speaks for someone who
thinks she is not very talented!
Well Michelle might think so, but let's see if her hairstyles had
any part to play in her winning those awards. She must have thought

hair was with the hairdresser itself, but wait…even Feng Shui has a
part to play in it!
In the last two decades, Michelle has sported various hairstyles
from the short and savvy to long and elegant. But the style that is
ideal for her is one that is rectangular in shape. Michelle has the
typical heart shaped face and according to the Five Elements theory,
this resembles the Fire element. In the Productive Cycle, Wood enhances
Fire, hence the rectangular shape.( Well, Michelle if you are reading this, stay away from long,
wavy hairstyles, as this is representative of the Water element! In the
Destructive Cycle, Water destroys Fire and this would cause disharmony
for you! )

shoulders. Now, don't you think that the overall shape IS rectangular?
Hmm… perhaps she really did consult a Feng Shui consultant…( hey Michelle if you really are interested in Feng Shui you should log on to our on-line magazinehttp://www.wofs.com for more tips! )
In any case, let's wait for the release and see if yet again
Michelle dazzles us with her on screen performance! And if her Feng
Shui-ed hairstyle would bring her yet another academy award!
