Image By Mary
is a style concierge service providing personal shopping, closet makeovers, online shopping, and travel packing.
In the many years, I have been a Stylist I have listened to stories of many women and their life journies.
For me, there is nothing more rewarding than to take part in that journey.
I am about helping clients through one on one sessions find practical solutions to everyday fashion - and everything in between.
Image by Mary will help you with your individual needs with guidance from an experienced stylist - business professional look, everyday fashion, event styling, photoshoot styling, personal shopping, and closet organization.
With my clients, I have had the opportunity to bring out their inner beauty and confidence in just a small amount of time. I have always loved creating a styled look for others and have experienced much JOY in my life by helping women transform in front of my eyes as they express surprise and sometimes tears at their new look.
I want you to look and feel the best you have ever felt EVERY DAY!
I believe in you and together we can journey into the most beautiful woman you are meant to be from the inside out!
my personal journey
I’m a passionate stylist who’s greatest joy is reconnecting women to their true self through personal style and showing them how powerful they are.
I spent my childhood moving around between Oahu, Maui, and Washington State. I came from a family of six. In my teens, I was very lost and unhappy,
I spent my twenties living on Maui and Oahu working as Office Manager for Honolulu Theatre for Youth and then as a Secretary for the Mayor's office, City and County of Honolulu.
My desire was always to care for and help people, I wanted to be a nurse. My sister Kelly, at the time, was living in New York doing research for Sloan Kettering. Estee Lauder donated 70 million dollars to the Look Good Feel Better program, (teaching women with cancer how to care for their skin and tips with their makeup, wigs, hats, turban, scarves). She suggested I become a Cosmetologist and to be involved with the program.
So I attended and completed Cosmetology School in Aiea, Hawaii. I had the good fortune to intern under Francis Lau. At this time I had three sons, so I relocated to Washington State to be closer to my mother.
I became the Look Good Feel Better Coordinator sponsored by the American Cancer Society and the Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association for two counties. I taught three classes a month. I also taught classes at Comprehensive Mental Health for their Horizons Club members.
The classes were called “Power Mondays with Mary”. I taught on a variety of topics depending on their needs and interests, such as; self-care, how to dress for job interviews, makeup application, I would also treat them to complimentary services such as haircuts, bang trims, shape eyebrows. etc. We always had a fun time, we even did a Fashion Show! The members were always very appreciative, I would receive nice cards and letters from them. It was very rewarding seeing their smiles and appreciation.
Needing a flexible schedule to teach and raise three sons I started a salon that became very successful and thus enabled me to raise three wonderful sons.
After my three sons were out on their own, this became a huge transition for me. It gave me time to really think, evaluate and reflect on what I wanted my life to look like going forward.
For years I had listened to women, their stories, journeys, hopes and dreams, they all seem to want to be more - more confidence, to be more noticed, to be more beautiful.
For years I had a vision and desire to make more of an impact on their life. I never had the time to put it all together, I just couldn’t figure out how to put it into practice. So I took one step at a time..
I made the decision to become an Image Consultant. The day I made this decision I knew I could have a larger impact on the lives of other women. I could incorporate years of experience as a hairstylist and makeup artist. I studied and became a Certified Personal Stylist and Image Consultant. I would read seventeen books at a time, read every magazine, I would go to every clothing store, observe others. I grabbed every friend, relative and volunteer I could for more experience and feedback.
I poured all of my ideas, my vision and my dreams I had for years into creating Image by Mary.
I felt so strongly that women know how personal image, self-care, personal appearance is such a powerful tool in creating a full-filling personal life and successful professional life.
This journey I have experienced, lead me to everything I needed in my life. Reward, happiness, and joy!
