The C.R.O.W.N. Effect..... Confidence that comes from more than just your image

Tara Hooper, the current reigning Mrs. Texas United World 2021, brings to the catwalk numerous titles and over 35 years of pageant experience.  At 5’2”, this mother of two,  is not the “usual” pageant winner and her first impression needs to be larger than life.  Most contestants come to the stage with their own brand of beauty in looks, confidence and poise, she stands apart with her savvy interview skills.


Being naturally friendly with the gift of gab that has served her well as a make-up artist, hairstylist, and image consultant, Tara has honed her communication skills at the University of Texas and through speaking and consulting engagements, as well as her podcast, The C.R.O.W.N. Effect. In addition to her titles she has had multiple top 5 placements and been the pageant interview winner in 1992 at Miss Fallbrook, 2012 at USA Petite Mrs, 2013 Mrs. Alabama United States, in 2015 and 2016 at Mrs. Texas International, and in 2021 in the Mrs. Texas United World pageants.

Work with Tara:

Online Pageant Coaching
Setting aside time for pageant training can be tricky, especially if lessons have to be scheduled around work, school, or family obligations. Add in a long commute to and from the pageant coaching academy or venue, and you’re looking at a major time commitment! However, with online coaching, it’s easier than ever before to create a plan that works on your terms. You’ll receive tools, instructions, and guidance to make great first impressions and secure high marks on your interviews, all from the privacy and comfort of your own home.

Pageants are stressful enough—let’s make coaching as convenient as possible!

 Pageant Coaching in Dallas (and Beyond)
Looking to find a pageant coach in Dallas, Texas? Tara is the currently-reigning Mrs. Texas United World 2021, which means that her clients have a definite home field advantage when it comes to securing pageant wins. Tara’s in-person coaching services include additional benefits like “pageant walk” training, stage presence analysis, and wardrobe consultation.

With all that said, Tara also works nationally! Having won titles in pageants outside of Texas, she’s not afraid to branch out and work with clients outside of the Lone Star State. Whether you’re in Dallas or Des Moines, Fort Worth or Fort Myers, Las Colinas or Los Angeles, you don’t have to just settle for a pageant coach near you. Instead, you can have Tara in your corner!

 Pageant Coaching for Kids and Teens
Are you the parent or guardian of an up-and-coming pageant “princess” ? Tara offers pageant coaching packages for teens (and even preteens) who want to win over hearts and minds the next time they get on stage! She’ll work with your child one-on-one to develop essential interview skills like great communication, magnetic storytelling, succinct delivery, and unflappable confidence. With your input, Tara will create a program that’s compatible with your child’s age and maturity level. While some pageant coaches employ a tired, one-size-fits-all approach, Tara will help the world see your tween or teen for the unique, charismatic individual that they are!

Tara has proudly coached Anitza Arelleno who placed Top 10 Miss New York USA  2020,  as a first timer, amongst over 150 contestants and Simone Goelz the reigning Ms. Texas USOA 2021. To name only a couple.

If you’re paralyzed on stage, or you know that the ONLY thing keeping you from the crown is your interview, Tara can share her strategies and support you need in creating a pageant-winning presence.
