I’m Not Just Your Stylist….

I'm not just your stylist

Hi, I’m MARY BETH and I’m not just your Stylist…

Early Life

​I grew up in a creative family. My mom sewed, cooked, played the piano, quilted, stitched, baked, and raised me and my sisters to never have idle hands. It’s no surprise my mom made all of our clothes (usually matching).  It made for really cute photos but did nothing for our individuality.  I’m the middle sister- which comes with its own set of issues.  I never really felt defined.

When my family and I would go shopping, my mom would dress us in the same outfits.  I didn’t want to wear the same thing as my sisters,  but my mom insisted, saying that it was easier for her to remember what we had on in case one of us got lost.  Maybe that’s why I cut my hair off—to have a little bit of individuality.

Persistent Conformity

Growing up and always dressing like my sisters, I never really had a sense of who I really was.  I felt like I was in someone else’s costume—funny how that is, since I have spent the last 25 years in Hollywood styling costumes for actors, transforming them from who they are to the character they were playing.

And all those years I never knew who I was playing.  I wanted to play myself, to be myself but didn’t know who that was.  Since I always looked like my sisters, I didn’t have anything to define me.

I tried to fit in for years.  Once I moved to Hollywood, I wondered how a celebrity stylist dressed and I started dressing like my coworkers.  When I became a stepmom, I dressed like other mothers.  When I got divorced, I dressed like my single friends.

Beauty in Individuality

It wasn’t until recently that I truly came into my own style.  I was able to clear out the blocks – that were largely in my closet in the form of clothing – and figure out who I am.

And that’s what I help you with.  My styling helps you get clear on who you are, release what’s not serving you so you can express yourselve and step into a level of confidence and ownership that’s just so powerful, just like I did for myself.

Don’t hide behind a costume that’s not you! 
Let me help you break through your mask and get to the real you so you can attract your ideal client that you are meant to serve.

About the author: Mary Beth Ramsey

As a Stylist, I help women entrepreneurs who are stepping into the spotlight on stages and on camera so they look and feel more confident, more credible, and as an expert in their field. Before you even start speaking on stage, your audience will have already decide if you are credible and if they want to work with you.

I have learned from my experience of dressing actors for their characters on TV shows and movies for the last 25 years, the shapes and styles that look best on camera, and how to blend your personality and character in a way that tells the audience who you are instantly. By blending these aspects, you will feel more yourself, more confident, and ready to walk onto your stage. Your ideal client will connect with you, be drawn to you, and know they have to work with you.

Nice to meet you too. I lived in Napa last year while working on a TV show. I loved it there. I was born in Oakland and grew up in El Cerrito and it was nice going back to the bay for a short time.

Maybe we can work together some day. I've used stylists and style houses for my studio's editorial shoots and here at Inside The Style Studio, we have more and more clients looking for just makeovers (including style makeovers). I'd love to connect with you and see what we may be able to bring to the table together for people!
