Introduction: Hi my name is Barbra Horowitz of Intuitive Personal Styling & Guidance.
If you are reading this right now, you have probably checked off that you are interested in a wardrobe audit, and image assessment! This is a complimentary service I offer to get to know you, your current wardrobe, and lifestyle. It lasts about 40 minutes.
If you have instantly booked me, your Closet Tour is how we prepare for your session which can be hosted either before the date you chose or on the date you chose.
2024 is the year I celebrate 20 years as a personal stylist, and for a very limited time. I am offering your first two hours at my 2004 rates of $150 an hour. That is over $150 an hour savings.
Then enjoy an additional $100 off per hour at $200 an hour.
My normal client rates are $300 an hour. This offer is only available on Thumbtack.
The great news is you don’t have to buy a large $$$ package upfront, and there is no 3-6 month commitment.
Take your styling step by step versus a rather large entry point of $3,000 -$5,000 -and even $10,000 dollar packages, and I am more experienced as you will read below.
You can even work with me under my wardrobe intelligence arm hourly.
Remote styling with me moves at an accelerated pace.
Regardless of where you call home. You want to hire your stylist by experience, not by geography.
Meaning you do not need a local stylist! You need the BEST!
It is just as easy to turn on Zoom as it is to open your front door.
British Vogue wrote about my remote styling services in 2008. This is how long I have been styling remotely. Remote styling is not a pivot for me.
👇 Take a look at my extensive styling experience over the past 20 years.🌟
I have worked in 12 states in person, around the country, and pockets of the world in person, and remote .
Here is how individual sessions usually work.
Release and Remove irrelevant clothing from your closet. Create relevant outfits from your current wardrobe. Text screenshots of
Restyled looks to your cell phone. Create a list of exciting pieces needed to elevate, and update your wardrobe and your life.
CUSTOM CURATED ONLINE SHOPPING
Together we send the dressing room to your home of 💯% returnable pieces. I shop for you and you check out. No commitment except to wait for your FITTING/STYLING, and get excited. Shopping sessions are approximately 2-3 hours. Much more efficient and financially fiscal than in person shopping experiences.

in multiple categories for your life. I will take pictures of all complete styled looks, and text you screenshots. Leaving you with the perfect FUTURE SELF capsule wardrobe.

I have been very fortunate to be covered in major press outlets such as British Vogue, Daily Candy, Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles magazine, LA Weekly, In Style - People Magazine/Stylewatch, and many more.
Pure Wow also covered my remote styling services. I am one of the first remote stylists and one of the very first stylists on Thumbtack.
I am the published author of Closet Control published by Sterling Press in 2007.
I had a very early style podcast produced by California Psychics called Fashion 411 - It’s never just about the clothing.
After 8 years of handling and developing top models, Some that are huge stars today. Once I left the modeling industry, I decided to take what I learned as a top agent and apply it to everyone.
I began my career at my father’s menswear store at 10 years old.
I worked in retail for over 10 years for well known retailers such as: Contempo Casuals, Ann Taylor, Nordstrom, Guess, Lancôme.
I have a great eye as well as knowing what clothing should cost. I shop clients online through planet 🌎 friendly resale and sale versus retail. My father’s store was high end menswear at wholesale prices.
Follow me over on @intuitivepersonalstyling on Instagram where I share (in my stories) style, and planet friendly style, and styling tips.
Congratulations working with me already makes you part of the solution around owning a more sustainable wardrobe for yourself, and our 🌎 Welcome to the circular economy by Restyling your closet first. Mindfully shopping second.
This is exactly how I will curate the pieces that we will acquire for you. Fashion is the number two offender to our environment behind agriculture. It’s important to resell what you remove and understand how to flip your wardrobe.
I am based at the beach in Los Angeles, California after living in Hollywood for over 15 years.
People magazine called me Hollywood’s personal stylist. Without a doubt, I have dressed my share of celebrities.
Styling is the perfect portal to your intentions and manifesting energy. I will add efficiency and value to your life coupled with immense joy.
Your wardrobe tells your story of where you have been, how you were raised, and how your family participated in getting dressed. Your struggle is not imagined.
Good news is, fashion and styling are my families story. It’s second nature. It is intuitive for me. It’s 47 years of my 57 years.
So Why do I have a longtime career as a personal stylist?
One word: "Never."
"I NEVER would have bought that."
"I NEVER would have put that together."
"I NEVER would have thought of that"
I have consulted for boutiques and was one ☝️ of the very first upcyclers of reworked tee shirts from Goodwill with a Custom cut T shirt line called Rigged Tee Shirt Couture. Traveling the sample sale circuit to Chicago, New York, London, and San Francisco and carried in major boutiques.
I was hired by brands like Air Jordan, Forever 21, Nike, Skyy vodka to cut up custom tops from oversized branded T-shirts for the brands guests at launch parties, movie premieres, private parties.
Barbra recalls how the people around her inspired the decision to become a professional stylist. “My cousin Betsy came to me one day, explaining, ‘Barbra, I feel good on the inside, I want to match it up on the outside. Can you help me with that thing you do in the closets?’ I answered, ‘The family parlor tricks?’ My mom has been selling her and our clothing way before eBay, and moving furniture and cutting up clothing were sort of the family mantra,” she shares. “Add in my father owning a high-end menswear store at a discount. Watching a tailor custom-fit suits didn’t hurt my understanding for fit as one of the most important elements of style.”
According to Barbra, simply style and fashion are about development—what you don’t know, learn, and what you do know, teach. “This is how the family parlor tricks became a business, and a book by Sterling Press called Closet Control,” she says.
