About The Image Doctor

“The Image Doctor”

At The Image Doctor, you are important.  If you want to improve your image and self-perception, we will help you from start to finish.  Firstly, your image consultation begins with a color analysis to determine your best colors.  Your colors are based on your skin, hair, and eyes.  Wearing your best colors will improve your self-perception and how others see you.  Secondly, after your colors are determined, you will explore your personal style. You will better understand your best choices to look and feel fantastic at the end of your consultation.
