    Working with Tara has been wonderful. I wasn't sure how'd I feel about someone going through my closet and critiquing my wardrobe, but it was a fantastic experience. Tara helped me find pieces I had that highlight my assets and downplay my trouble areas. Most importantly though, she listened to me and never pushed something I wasn't comfortable wearing. For the first time in a very long time, I am looking forward to shopping for new clothes.

    Tara is what you've been looking for
    Tara made me feel comfortable in my current situation. She styled about 30 outfits I would've never put together out of my closet as my Life transitions move me forward.

    Extremely grateful!
    I am beyond satisfied with the support and guidance Tara Hooper has provided as my image consultant and business coach! She is keenly talented in helping individuals understand and appreciate their unique and authentic style while cultivating a professional presence. More than a "personal stylist," Tara helps you communicate just the right message for just the right audience in your business and professional endeavors. She has provided me with exceptional guidance from wardrobe to website to the innermost workings of organizing a successful business plan. Tara Hooper has been a "motivating sounding board" as we discuss my plans, progress and pursuit of excellence in all things!

    The MUST HAVE experience for the working woman
    I found Tara Hooper at “The Style Signature” on Thumbtack after researching this for WEEKS for a birthday present for my wife. My wife is in technical marketing and international business and after some recent promotions, we felt the need to seek out some fashion help. In researching this, I went to so many web sites and spoke to several people. I found lots of people that would have had her shopping in the most expensive stores in Dallas and dress her inappropriately, especially for her work. And several who would have had her spend a fortune to look like something that would only be appropriate to walk Paris runways. But none of that is helpful. I needed a professional that understood how to look professional and could dress my wife like the successful business woman she is. I needed someone who could help her feel comfortable on a plane and look appropriate when presenting in San Francisco, London or Shanghai. And yes, there was also a need to be cute on a night out in Dallas. I was very happy to have finally found Tara Hooper. I liked that she had an education that included study overseas and was well-traveled. And I really liked that she had an impressive resume of proven success, helping lots of women realize their full potential in the business world. Tara has a great web site with several great packages, but she was kind enough to tailor a package of essential elements that got me into a price range I felt comfortable with. We decided to do two sessions. One that included a haircut, an extensive makeup session, an analysis of the colors that looked best on my wife, and several other things that proved to be invaluable. The other was a shopping spree at stores that sold clothes that fit her personal needs and was in a price range that she felt comfortable with. A target budget for this shopping spree was set in advance, so that Tara could find the stores that were right for her. When my wife got there, there were several outfits set out for her to try on, based on the price, the sizes and the colors that looked best on her. (Not that she stuck to the budget….But Tara made a bold attempt, to no avail…) My wife came home feeling confident and excited to go to work. She even volunteered to go with me to an event that she would have NEVER wanted to go to before, just so she could wear her new clothes! And after the shopping trip, when my wife had questions about things and needed some advice, she texted Tara and got a response back immediately! Tara was everything I wanted and so much more. The whole experience was so much more than we expected. It was an entire image makeover! My wife is already talking about getting with Tara in the spring to pick out spring and summer clothes.

    ENGAGING, KNOWLEDGABLE AND HELPED IMPROVE MY PRESENCE!
    I had the privilege of hearing Tara speak at an event. She was extremely knowledgeable and communicated the importance of showing up in your professional best. As a result, I hired her to help me improve my image... I went from looking "good" to being told I looked "REGAL"! I have never been told that before in my life! Now I have increased confidence and am getting more bookings. Well worth every penny...

    Thank you Tara!!
    For someone like me who hates shopping, really hates shopping, Tara was an Godsend! I am proud of myself for reaching out for help and I am glad Tara was there. I work in a professional environment where I have to talk to a lot of different types of people, so I wear suits and button down shirts...colors black, blue, grey and white. I would also like to start dating again, so you can see where I needed the help. Tara came in and understood my shopping issues, viewed my wardrobe, took me to a trunk show and educated me on creative ways to make my wardrobe work for me both for work and for play. She took away the collars and added a little color along with advice that was priceless in making my transition from work to play flawless. I have been complemented on a weekly basis about something Tara advised me to do, wear or buy. Tara has added confidence in areas that I didn't know I was lacking. Thank you Tara!

    I had a photo shoot and a speaking engagement to get prepared for and no idea what to wear. Tara helped me understand what values I was hoping to portray and how to best express them. The best part was she was able to help me find items in my own closet that worked perfectly so she saved me tons of time and money shopping and searching when the perfect pieces were hiding in my own closet! I love how she combined items I never would have thought to put together. The final photos were great and I feel this was due to Tara's brilliant eye for color and what colors would Pop based on my skin tones and the shoot location. I felt pulled together and comfortable for my speaking engagement which helped to boost my confidence. I loved working with Tara and look forward to working with her again in the future.

    I had a fantastic time working with Tara, and my closet is much better for it! She came over and we went through all my clothes together. She taught me a lot about my body type and how I can best dress to show off my assets. Then we had a great shopping trip where we found a lot of great pieces for work and casual. I got dressed this morning in new pants and top, and I feel like a million bucks. Thanks Tara!!!

    I have been working with Tara for almost a year now -- and think she is just amazing! Her ideas, personality & advice are very refreshing and creative! She made me feel really comfortable and showed me lots of alternative options with my existing wardrobe - vs suggesting buying all new. Pretty confident that I will be a client of hers for life :-)!
  • Amy P. Mar 1, 2016
    I thoroughly enjoyed working with Tara. Together, we did a Closet Audit & Personal Shopping. She helped me identify many existing outfits in my wardrobe and did an excellent job of selecting a work wardrobe for me based on my tastes and body type. I can’t believe how many outfits we tried on at Dillard’s in such a short period of time! It was a super-efficient shopping trip, and an overall great experience. I highly recommend her and look forward to working with Tara again.

    Tara Hooper came to my home to help me pull items together from my own closet that flatter my body type. Later we met at Nordstrom's where I walked into the dressing room with a dozen outfits already waiting for me to try on, including shoes and jewelry! We found the perfect dress for my special event and I left the store feeling so relieved and confident that I would be looking my best for my event. I may actually start enjoy shopping again now that I know what type of styles and colors work best for me!

    Tara Hooper and The Style Signature are the epitome of true style! It is an honor and a privilege to be taught by a master of her caliber! Thank you!
  • Lynn B. Nov 23, 2015
    Tara did a style and closet consultation with me. She helped me put together additional professional outfits which I cannot wait to wear! She substantially expanded my wardrobe options and my fashion knowledge in just one afternoon, and we had a good time working on the project. I would highly recommend Tara for anyone needing to get their wardrobe and closet in shape, and learn more about how to achieve the look they love. Tara is professional, knowledgeable, and it was a wonderful experience having her in my closet!

    What a pleasure it has been to work with Tara from The Style Signature. I was in need of a complete “do over” from hair, makeup, wardrobe to head shot. My business is upcycling and repurposing arts & crafts, antiques, furniture with an eclectic look. Tara listened and pulled together all of this to give a fun, lively, and professional unique look where I feel I fit in with my business. She showed me styles that work with my figure, business and lifestyle. I take my color chart when I go shopping to get the right colors. Tara went thru my closet and pulled together over 20 business outfits. I use her private fashion portal to remember what I have and which clothing items go together. It was fun doing the professional head shot with her and Laura, her photographer. Tara did the makeup and hair and wardrobe. Tara has listened to what my needs are and has made me feel right at home as she worked her magic to update my image to go with my eclectic business. I look forward to working with her in the future as my business needs expand. Coleen at www.SweetwaterEclectic.com

    Tara is amazing. She has such a great eye for design and color. I used her services for a wardrobe assessment. She was able to show me what looked good for my body type and colors that complemented me. She helped find pieces I never wear and give them new life. Absolutely worth the time and investment. She's very professional and sweet too.
  • Stephanie G. Nov 19, 2015
