Kay Byrd brings years of experience as a certified personal development and style coach. Her face and voice are noticeable from radio and television work, including time with a local radio station where she weekly spent time as “Coach Kay,” advising on the dos and don’ts of fashion and mixing together the right “elements of style” for a good look.
And this summer, she’s bringing those tips to the Moore Public Library for a presentation at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at the library, 225 S. Howard Ave.
Her goal is to help women in putting forward the best look they can to then let everything that’s inside of them shine.
“This program is for every woman who has gone thru a divorce or loss of a loved one, gained or lost weight, is celebrating a milestone birthday, bored with her wardrobe, wants to shop with more intention, just graduated from college or other educational training program, is job hunting, just got hired, desires a promotion, just had a baby, and/or wants to understand how her personal image and clothing choices effect outcomes,” Byrd said.
And thanks to an anonymous donation from one of her clients, one lucky lady will have a chance to put Byrd’s advice to practical use with a $500 prize package that will be given out at the program. It includes $250 in clothing during a shopping trip accompanied by Byrd and pays for her one-on-one consultation throughout.
A drawing for the prize will be held by free raffle and the person selected must be present to win. Similar drawings will take place in each of Byrd’s stops around the library system this summer.
She seeks to give advice, both general and specific, to help women to make the right sort of first impression, be it at a job interview or a social outing.
“Making a strong first impression is critical for success in all aspects of life,” she said. “Studies have shown that you are constantly judged on the basis of your appearance, especially during the first 15 seconds of an encounter.”
