    CHICAGO, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Most hairstylists are trained in a
 particular style and give this same style of haircut to all of their clients,
 regardless of differences in lifestyle and personality.  Now, Billy Yamaguchi
 helps you bring the principles of Feng Shui into your hairstyle, makeup, and
 fashion sense, so your look will express the real you.  Using the five
 elements of Feng Shui -- earth, fire, water, wood and metal -- Billy shows you
 how to understand who you really are in the world, and then he designs your
 haircut, color, makeup and fashion choices to express your unique
 individuality and style.
     Sourcebooks is excited to announce a multi-book deal with Billy Yamaguchi,
 internationally known Feng Shui stylist to the stars.  Says Billy, "My book is
 the first to use Feng Shui to guide the consumer who wants to better herself
 and create good chi in her life.  Feng Shui elements can tell her what
 haircuts look best on her face shape and with her body type, what color works
 with her skin tone and eye color, so she can rediscover and express who she is
 and what she does best."  Sourcebooks' publisher and CEO Dominique Raccah
 explains, "Billy offers something totally new in beauty -- the experience of
 having your outer appearance reflect who you are as a person. You come out of
 a session with Billy or one of his stylists looking and feeling your best in a
 profound sense.  And with his upcoming book, readers will essentially get a
 $500 style consultation for under $30."
