Color and contrast are what make an image "pop". Sharpness tends to be associated with good color and contrast. Not all images need to be ultra-sharp, but all images benefit from good contrast. Ultra-sharp for portraits requires some softening in post-processing.

There is no such a requirement to soften portraits. Some of the most interesting portraits are those that are razor sharp.

Today contrast and color can be taken care of digitally.

There are interesting portraits that are "sharp" and there are interesting portraits that are"soft". There is no "requirement" that they be either. The choice is based on either artistic preferences or customer preference.

Obviously, but you can't add true sharpness if it wasn't there in the first place, unlike simply blurring your image in Photoshop or any other image editing app.
