Signature Style Appointment with Style Expert Shari Braendel

During this 15-minute power packed appointment, you will work side by side with Style Expert Shari Braendel to develop a 3-word phrase that becomes your individual author/speaker Signature Style Statement.

After determining your style statement, you will then be treated to a professional color analysis to find out your best colors. You’ll take home a full set of 36 fabric color swatches, including the digital format to keep on your phone; a makeup instructional guide for your color code, and a step by step guide to dressing your best for speaking engagements.

Cost: $45 (Reserve your spot when registering)
