Ginger Burr has built a remarkable career as an expert personal image consultant and makeup artist who gently and intuitively helps women communicate who they are through what they wear. A notable speaker and leader in the field of fashion and style, Ginger’s adroit understanding of beauty trends and fashion image has been celebrated by The Boston Globe, Women’s Health Magazine, Worth Magazine, VegNews Magazine, Elegant Wedding Magazine, cnn.com, ABCNews.com, Fox TV News and More Magazine.com.
In 1987, Ginger launched her own company, Total Image Consultants, with the simple credo that a dynamic personal and professional image could be created without having to relinquish personal style or comfort. Today, 25 years later, Ginger offers private consultations and remarkable makeovers for women and transgender clients. Ginger also directs corporate seminars and community education programs for some of Boston’s most prestigious organizations including Harvard Law School, Harvard Business School, the U.S. Army, and Fidelity Investments and has been the media spokesperson and fashion expert for Rowenta, Inc.
In 2005, Ginger adopted veganism as a way of life and quickly realized that this personal commitment directly impacted her business. At a time when the terms stylish and vegan rarely appeared in the same sentence, Ginger’s mission became to prove that the two could happily co-exist. Her passion for health, beauty and her commitment to a cruelty-free way of life also led to her being selected as one of VegNews Magazine’s “25 Most Fascinating Vegetarians” in 2007. She now offers guidance, support and insight to her vegan (or just curious and open-minded) clients showing them how to dress fashionably and still be true to their values.
Ginger is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College (a music major — who would ever think that would lead to a career in fashion!). She is also the Past President of the New England Chapter of the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) and has served on the AICI’s International Board as the Vice President of Member Communications. In addition, Ginger is a past President of the Boston Wedding Group.
Ginger recently launched her one-of-a-kind body image, self-esteem, and style home study program “Who Taught You How to Dress?” which allows women all over the world to overcome the obstacles and learn the skills they need to create a wardrobe they love all in the comfort of their own home!
