My Journey to becoming a stylist

I am often asked – how did you get started as a stylist? Why did you do it?

When I was young, living in rural Northern Indiana, I always loved creative projects. I sewed, enjoyed selecting the materials and putting colors/outfits together, as well as drawing. However, when it came time to select a college and major, I didn’t know anyone who worked in fashion or art-beyond teaching-so after completing a bachelor’s and a master’s. Writing also came very easily to me so I pursued degrees in communication and ended up working in health care and higher ed in corporate communications. During all that time, I loved it. But, after 24 years, I needed a change. 

A more flexible job would allow me to visit and help care for my aging parents. It was also the perfect time to do something new in a more artistic field. In my previous career, I often coordinated photo shoots, helped plan outfits, colors, etc. and did some makeup for the camera. So stylists and image consultants seemed intriguing, especially after I had worked with one at a photo shoot.

But I needed to learn how to do it all. I wanted to be a trained professional.

My training was gleaned from several places, including School of Style, based in Hollywood, Calif., and New York NY, focusing on production and celebrity styling. 

I trained in Indianapolis at Pro Soto Studios for markup artistry, and started out as a makeup artist for commercial photo shoots and weddings. I enjoyed it, but felt it wasn’t a long-term career. 

I later learned color analysis, personal styling and image consulting with the Association of Image Consulting International (www.aici.org), one of the largest professional groups for stylists with more than 600 members worldwide. 

As I work with clients, I find there is a real need for style and image services today, even in light of changing dress codes and job descriptions. Who  doesn’t love to make improvements and learn new ways to look and even feel? Everyone needs confidence!

If you’ve ever thought – “I don’t like the way I look– I can’t seem to find clothing that really says who I am and what my style really is.” Or want to break out of your style routine, consider my services. 

Don’t despair!

As George Eliot once wrote: “It’s never too late to be who you might have been.” Amen to that! I’d love to work with you to discover your best self – today!

"A goal of mine was to upgrade my wardrobe and I hired Beth for a professional image consultation. I found Beth through a Google search. Even before meeting, her website answered many of my questions (and made me realize I had even more, which was helpful to ask during the appointment). Beth was gracious and a lovely host during the analysis. It also became quickly apparent that she knew her stuff as she (correctly) pre-typed me before we even we went through swatches of colors. So satisfied & glad I did this. I would highly recommend Beth to those looking to add "oomph" to their wardrobe."
McKenzie Hollingsworth

Beth was so professional and has a deep knowledge of the styling process as a whole! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone who wants a fun & successful styling process."
