Janna Beatty is the owner of one of Texas’ premier makeover studios. She plunged into the study of image consultation when the field was still relatively new. After an education the the University of Southampton, England, Muskingum University, and the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Arts, several careers followed, including news anchor for one of television’s top 100 stations. Then Janna discovered the image consulting business.
Janna has studied in New York and Paris with some of the most respected advisors in the fashion and beauty industry. Her knowledge of line, color, and makeup design is unparalleled. The color system Janna has used her entire career is Color 1 Associates.
Janna insists, “After all that (study), it is the 30 years of working with my amazing clients that has taught me the most important thing — each person is unique, with his/her own beautiful possibilities.”
