“Tara is blessed with the amazing talent of bringing out the best in people. She helped me feel confident when I walk into a room with style recommendations just for me. Everyone should experience her custom attention to detail that she provides. Priceless!” Lisa Williams
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Tara Hooper from the Style Signature for over 2 years now. I recently started my own company and was in the process of creating a website and presentation for prospective clients. I reached out to Tara, knowing her eye for perfection. Tara was able to look at the presentation from not only a consultants view, but also from a marketing and business angle. Tara helped with the branding of the website, to the presentation, business cards and fliers. The advice and changes Tara recommended on the presentation will make it more impactful and succinct. Tara is one of those individuals that just “gets it when she sees it”. I highly recommend you have Tara spend some time on your presentation and or website. The results will amaze you.Thanks Tara!
I launched Chloe Saltarelli Photography in 2015. I soon realized I needed a little push to take my business to the next level. Tara and I met several years ago and she has become a dear friend. She has been my make-up artist, hair stylist and image consultant along the way. I hired Tara for some personal branding consulting. Let me just say, wow! She connected me with a fabulous web designer and I had a live website within months of us working together. She helped me develop a brand unique to me and my photography business. I’ve learned through Tara how to attract the ‘right clients’, and not the ones who first ask, ‘how much?’ Tara is also a ‘connector’ by nature. She introduced me to seasoned professionals in my industry who have become mentors as well as friends. I highly recommend Tara Hooper if you are looking to take your brand to the next level. She is kind, funny, sincere, honest, genuine and is well worth the investment.
Tara is an indispensable resource for CEO's and other C-level professionals looking to have objective counsel and a focused strategy and plan to manage their professional brand and image. Tara has qualified and unique insights on helping professionals manage their brand, social media strategy, LinkedIn presence, and communications approaches and styles. Having witnessed her expertise on C-level projects where the perceptions (sometimes the perceptions couldn't be further from the truth) of senior executives and even candidates for public service roles, need to be carefully managed, Tara continues to deliver with intelligent and extremely valuable counsel.
I highly recommend Tara from The Style Signature to become your personal branding coach. Tara believes an individual should be who you are rather than being someone you are not, and she really helped bring out my own self-assurance in my image as well as my self-confidence. She is extremely professional and highly knowledgeable in what she teaches, and I am more impressed with her every time we meet. She is a beautiful person inside and out and grateful to have been connected with such a genuine person.
Thank you so much for spending time teaching me how to better present myself. Your ideas, input and feedback on presentation stance, speaker volume, and wardrobe tips were invaluable!
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 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. 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 was everything I wanted and so much more. The whole experience was so much more than we expected. It was an entire image makeover!
After working with Tara I feel great, more modern: Like I have strengthened my professional presence
Business Development Strategist
I have hired Tara to work with me in my closet to organize and weed through my business wardrobe. She also set up an online closet for me which saves me tons of time when I'm running to meetings. Working with Tara motivates you to get organized and makes you feel like you look like a million bucks! Tara is professional, knowledgable, and a pleasure to work with! I have also had Tara come in to speak at a few business functions, and she is always a huge hit. Send your clients (male and female!) to her without hesitation.
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 the advice to adjust my wardrobe based on the client I am meeting which has enabled me to connect to the person I am interviewing and interacting with on a level I never realized I could achieve. She also advised me on how to make 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!

Wow! I only thought I knew what colors and outfits looked best on me. After working with Tara, I not only know what colors to choose, but what styles look best on me. There are so many secrets I learned that have made my outfits so much better. It not only has cut down on my "getting dressed for work time" but I also shop way more efficiently and no longer buy clothes I'll never wear. (You know the ones...that have tags on them still after a year and you feel bad to throw them out) If you are looking for help with anything from hair style, wardrobe, personal shopping, or headshot consultation (she helps you with wardrobe and will be onsite with you), I highly recommend Tara. She will work with your budget (seriously) and create an amazing image enhancement for you!
Met with a Leasing Agent and her tenant this morning. First meeting I’ve had in a while where I felt this much confidence. It’s definitely a work in progress but I appreciate your insight and help!
After meeting Tara at my house to help me evaluate my closet, I was so inspired I purchased the "30 Day Transformation" package. She emailed me homework sheets before each video conference. This included colors that suit my tones, dressing for my body shape, types of necklines best for me, and scale of jewelry/patterns. Booking the online meetings were really convenient for my schedule and I felt the sessions were helpful. I used to hate to shop because I felt like it was such a time suck. Now, I can confidently walk into a store and go straight to my signature colors, look at the style and know immediately if it will flatter my figure. I can also piece together separates even if I bought them from different stores. Today shopping is much more enjoyable, efficient and I rarely have to return anything! I'm so glad I found Tara. She listens to my concerns and gives practical feedback. I really look forward to our continued relationship.
After seeing Tara speak and reviewing her testimonials on how she had helped others, I reached out to her to work together as a private client. I am a professional speaker and business owner and felt like my image was not reflective of my role. She helped me by assisting me with identifying a new wardrobe, doing my hair and make up, and helped during the process of obtaining new head shots. She went above and beyond my expectations. During my first speaking engagement afterwards someone came up to me and commented how they knew I was the speaker before I took the stage because of how "regal" I looked. She took my image from 'good' to 'regal'! I've never had that in my life! Thank you, Tara, for your everything you've done!

I needed pictures for my new website. I had a consultation with Tara Hooper from The Style Signature. We discussed the nature of my business, looked at different options for outfits, makeup, accessories and picked beautiful combinations. Tara also updated my haircut to better reflect my style. The pictures turned out beautiful and I feel like Tara really helped capture my essence, energy and passion for my practice. The whole experience was very relax and super fun! Thank you Tara!
Tara Hooper knows how to make you look stunning. I hired her to help me select appropriate attire for speaking on stage. “WOW!” is all I can say because in just one session, she put together at least 10 stage-ready outfits straight from my closet! And another 20 outfits for business meetings and one-on-ones - something I desperately needed help with.
A couple of times I got teary-eyed because I didn't know I could look so glamorous; I didn't know I had those types of clothes to do that with. What a special treat to not only learn what works best on my body but also to have discovered a whole new wardrobe without having to buy new clothes.
If you are business professional or speaker, I highly recommend hiring Tara for her image consultation. She knows how to pull pieces together to create a look that is flattering and draws attention to YOU and not what you’re wearing. Her energy is dynamic and you should see her expression when the outfit she puts together is a sure thing. It's priceless! I love working with Tara and know you will, too.
Being personally coached by San Diego’s most renowned image consultants Tara Hooper (Mrs. Southern California) is one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. The knowledge I have gained working side by side with Tara has given me the skills and knowledge to take my career to the next level. She taught me the importance of creating exactly what people desire by listening to their wants and needs which is what I believe sets me apart.
Business Owner Carlsbad, CA
Noticing her husband’s stylish clothes, Tara offered to put me in the same outfit without having to shop for it or spend the hours searching for the perfect size or price. After Tara handled all exchanges to get the perfect fit, and found reasonably priced options, the outfits were then pressed and arrived on hangers ready to be worn. For someone whose work and family needs keeps them so busy that they simply do not have the time to put together a fashionable wardrobe mix, Tara is the answer.

“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.”
“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.
“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!”
“I was able to have Tara pick me out a new outfit that I love!!!!!! I also got a wonderful new hairstyle and color that I love!!! Can’t wait to have her go with me to pick out my new glasses to complete my new improved look!!!”
I clearly remember the day I met Tara. I had recently gone back to work after 4 years, due to having a child (and not just any child, a RARE special needs child!). I was SO excited about my passion to help others and went to one of my very first networking events! However, I didn’t have a clue what to wear! My closet had TONS of t-shirts, sweats, hoodies, and yoga pants! The thing was though, I recently had lost over 20 pounds and even those didn’t fit! I wore my “best” and hoped for the BEST! I may not have fashion sense but I have a GREAT eye for amazing people. The event I attend had around 50 women and although I was nervous and definitely not dressed correctly, I noticed Tara. Out of that room of 50 two people stood out. Tara was one. I “hoped” she would come see my vendor table so I could find out “who” this stunning woman was. I DID meet Tara and she was everything I NEEDED. That Day I ordered her “Head to Toe” package and WOW! I Feel so great about myself, my image, and well.. my business is better than EVER! There are a few people I owe my success to and Tara is one!
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.
