Thank you for your interest in the services of STAR IMAGE. Are you an ambitious and talented person with a great deal to offer but do not know how to package yourself for success? Our image consulting programs are custom tailored to meet each individual specific needs and goals,
The STAR IMAGE program is based on the theory of perceived Image, and strategies to maximize and optimize your personal image. The entertainment industry has become so incredibly competitive that to be successful takes more than talent and/or luck. It takes the right package. In addition to talent, you need motivation, hard work, and the right image. Managers and agents do not take the time to package their clients anymore. Youre on your own, and must take responsibility for communicating yourself visually.
When you walk into a room, some decisions are made about you in the first 5 seconds. If that first, nonverbal impression is negative, or even neutral, it will take almost a miracle to overcome it. So why not create a positive impression in the first place?
In our STAR IMAGE program, we convey these important principles in simple, concrete language with practical demonstrations and applications to reinforce the theory. We will address your lifestyle and career goals as they relate to creating your personal style. This is truly an education in how to create and maintain your best, most effective personal image.
First Consultation: Studio or Client Home 3-4 hours
Making flattering, correct choices about grooming, clothes, hair and makeup is the result of understanding and applying precise principles of color, line, shape, form, pattern and texture. Your personal style depends on successfully harmonizing your personality with your coloring, your body type, your lifestyle, your environment and your personal and professional goals.
This first session includes a comprehensive exploration of your goals, lifestyle, and current wardrobe. We would like to view your latest Theatrical Headshots, and discuss the plan of management or self- promotion. We would also like to view your printed materials, including resume and cover letter, business cards and stationery.
We will get to know you by discovering your fashion personality and preferences, social activities and personal and professional lifestyles. A popular option is to meet in our clients home for our first session. This will allow us access to your present wardrobe. To start an intelligent and economical new wardrobe plan you might need assistance in an evaluation of the wearables, repairables and discards. We will consider alterations and wardrobe organization. At this time we will gain a general idea of your accessory needs, i.e., scarves, jewelry, shoes, etc., as well as your professional accouterments.
We will structure the organization of your clothes closets and drawers. If needed, we will create a photographic documentary, consisting of approximately thirty to forty images, which will serve as a visual record of the different combinations of attire we will be creating from your wardrobe.
Second Consultation: Studio 3 hours
In this session, at the Academy, we will do a complete color analysis to determine which colors in clothing are best suited for your skin, hair and eye coloring.

We will assess your hair color and style for appropriateness to your face shape, coloring and lifestyle goals. At this session we will instruct you in the art of applying your own makeup (male or female).
