Self-similar assumptions are commonly used to model stationary axisym-metric jets from keplerian discs. Conversely, we propose in this paper a self-similar model where the outflow is expelled from the star itself and its close environment. A comparison of these two self-similar approaches is given. We apply our analysis to describe the central optical part of jets from young stars. A simple scheme is drawn to link the parameters with the observables. Thus the jet morphology can be reproduced and a scenario is given for the transition of the flow from jet to a solar-type wind as the star evolves towards the main sequence. Finally, we briefly outline the properties of critical points under self-similarity through the example of the present model.
