*Tamika Raymond, celebrity wardrobe stylist and founder of the “Style Theory Tour,” kicked off the first stop of the 14 city tour in Atlanta earlier this month and will hold its third tour date in Charlotte on Saturday, January 31, 2015.
Leading industry style and beauty experts present included Celebrity Makeup Artist Ashunta Sheriff, Celebrity Hairstylist Terrence Davidson, and Award-winning Makeup Artist Nissa Green. The event was hosted by Lifestyle Specialist Kenny Burns.
“”Style Theory” is a thought provoking and enlightening workshop not just for aspiring fashion stylists and beauty professionals, but for the average person who wants to look and feel above average. ‘Style Theory’ will connect the gaps and help participants become the total package! This workshop is suitable for both women and men, and will answer questions pertaining to make up application, hair care, and fashion blunders to avoid. It will reveal the secrets of styling and uncover hair care…
“I really felt that ‘Style Theory’ is a necessary because you have so many people who need help with styling and makeup. You have so many moms who have lost their mojo and just need help. The Style Theory Tour is a tour where the top in the business will show them how to put their look together, what hair works, clothes, their style etiquette,” says Raymond.
Raymond added, “They will have a comprehensive training. They will learn how to put themselves together from head to toe,” she says.
According to Raymond, “Style Theory” was created to inspire women and men to find their own style, and empower them to assist others in doing the same. The purpose of this workshop is to teach others, in a one on one interactive environment, how to become the total package from the inside out. We believe style is key, but style is not only external. Style is within and finding true beauty begins with ones mindset. The ‘Style Theory’ workshop is designed to teach the ins and outs of styling from inner (mental) beauty to hair, makeup, and how to dress for every occasion. Raymond isn’t new to this, she has lent her style dexterity to chart toppers Lauryn Hill, Jay-Z, Toni Braxton, Usher, Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige, Chris Tucker, Ciara, Keri Hilson, Maxwell, Nas, T.I, Janelle Monae, Dr. Dre and soul singers Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin. Her fashion work has graced the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, GQ, Rolling Stone, Essence, Seventeen, People, Vibe and Details.
Raymond’s top tip for styling on a budget, “Don’t follow trends too closely. Find one staple piece and add a low-end piece with it; high-low styling. I always say buy a good shoe or good shirt.”
