IMAGE CONSULTING & PERSONAL BRANDING
What is personal image?
It’s your personal calling card, your visual brand, and a representation of everything you stand for and what you want people to know about you.
It's a personal source of self-expression that deserves more than a cursory thought and brief consideration.
For better or for worse, the first impression you give to someone will be formed in sometimes less than seven seconds.
Why do you need one? You already have one, no matter how much or how little effort or thought you put into it. You need to understand that perception is reality - how you think about yourself and how others see you.
What is an image consultant?
According to the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI), the largest professional association of personal and corporate image consultants worldwide, “Image consultants offer assistance in image enhancement (appearance, body and color analysis, wardrobe development, and management), sound and effective communications, business and social etiquette, civility, branding, and more—all through coaching and training.”
In layman's terms - an image consultant has the tools and knowledge to help you express yourself on your terms. To clarify your message. And to make you look and feel your absolute physical best in the process.
Everyone is already beautiful. Everyone is already perfect.
A professional can help you where you want it, not where someone else thinks you need it.
Why hire an image consultant?
You own your personal message. You need to control what you're saying to others.
Working with a professional can help you define your personal brand and reflect a true visual representation of your inner power.
This extends to not only your wardrobe and intangible skills, but your physical surroundings, including your office or personal work space. Everything about you sends a message to others and wrong impressions are difficult if not sometimes impossible to correct.
Elegance is not about being noticed, it's about being remembered.
IMAGE & BRANDING PROGRAMS
The Transformative Image Program is a revolutionary and unique system for image refinement - it is a multi-step, in-depth process, after which you will have clearer insight into who you are and the message you want to convey, as well as a newly-coordinated wardrobe, knowledge of body style and personal fit, and recommendations for hairstyle and make-up updates. Karen will bring out your best self in a supportive, relaxed, detailed, and thorough process. You’ll get to know each other and build a bond that can last a lifetime.
You will forward photos to Karen (email, shared via Pinterest Board, etc.) of your design and life inspirations - designers, colors, music groups, quotes, activities, etc. Anything that moves you, or to which you aspire.
This revolutionary component consists of 3-4 weeks of coaching - in-person or Zoom - to initiate your transformation work. It’s designed to not only be personal, but also engaging, confidential, respectful, and enlightening. During this time there will not be any physical image work, and it will help ensure that you find satisfaction in the end result of the entire process.
Let the physical transformation work begin! Divided into two separate in-person sessions, you will witness the reflection of your first weeks of your transformation.
