Image Consultations, Seminars and Workshops


Color, style, makeup and clothing reflect one's personality that is in integrity and congruent with one's "Authentic Self".  Knowing your personal style and colors will create balance, harmony, and authenticity. 


It is a creative experience to work with Diana. She is a genius in the art of bringing out the absolute best in a person. Her individual advanced color analysis, illusionary makeup tricks, personal wardrobe consultations, and hair styling suggestions result in total harmony.  No two people are alike, and nothing is pre-packaged. 


"I am more convinced than ever of the uniqueness and beauty of each individual.  My lifetime ministry has been to help men, women, and children to recognize and appreciate their special inner qualities and translate this knowledge to outward visual beauty. The information you gain will help you to understand what qualities make you unique and how you can externally express these positive qualities in your signature style of clothing, personal colors, design scheme, and makeup.”


 Let me join you in your wonderful journey of self-discovery!





Etiquette for Corporations, Individuals, and Children

Diana’s etiquette consultations contribute knowledge of social and business skills that will increase success in relationships and professions.

(A Letter to the ladies whose men are hesitant to take Image or Etiquette classes:)

In early times, men might wear loin cloths because they were more comfortable clothing. With time, women have had the responsiiblity of

bringing more civility and class into their families. You may want to let your husband know that many junior and senior executives take these classes as a step toward upward corporate mobility. Others may find it as a way to create more positive work and family relationships. These Family Etiquette classes are often a bonding session between children and parents.  You may want to remind your husband that these are Professional Development classes and sessions that may be tax deductible.  Image is also a way to create a powerful presence that will positively affect work and family experiences.                          Diana Olson
