Sharon Haver, Fashion Expert & Style Advisor

Press Clips of some of my media mentions + appearances as a fashion and style expert

My name is Sharon Haver. I spent well over two decades styling people and brands to put their best look forward whether commercially, editorially or through my style mentoring.

I have empowered countless women to take control of their look my mastering stylist skills through my fashion advice that has appeared in hundreds of newspapers via my Scripps Howard News Service syndicated column and in its online home of FocusOnStyle.com which I founded 15 years ago.

As a fashion and style expert, I have been featured in media such as Real Simple, CNN.com, Martha Stewart Radio, Oprah.com, ELLE, and even starred in my own Macy’s TV commercial as the fashion guru.

My work as a stylist appeared on the covers of VOGUE Mexico, Ladies Home Journal, and in the pages numerous catalogs and advertising campaigns from Avon to Macy’s.

I want to continue my mission to help every woman have the confidence to be her own stylist and turn on her unique and personal style when it matters. Below, you will find a sampling of my media mentions & appearances.

A Reader:

“After surfing a variety of sites in vain for a hairstyle that I could do myself (lacking time and energy) I finally hit upon this site. A tremendous amount of work has gone into this site, it is well developed, it is easy to navigate and, it has more interesting ideas than you can shake a stick at!

I thank whomever had the foresight to create it (Sharon?) and the financial backers of it.
Hurray! Finally, a real woman’s site. “–O.B., Menora, Israel (32- year old mother of a toddler and a baby– which would be the reason I lack the time and energy to get to a hairdresser for an event).
