Are you creative enough to become a Personal Stylist?

Are you creative enough to become a Personal Stylist?

Have you noticed that when things are meant to be, everything just flows? You no longer have to push the jammed door or struggle to find the right key; the door almost just opens up for you? This is exactly what happened to me once I made the decision to become a Personal Stylist, yes it took me a long time to get to that decision but once I decided personal styling was my calling everything fell into place, it’s almost as if the angels above we’re rejoicing saying: “finally, she’s listened to all the signs we’ve been placing in […]

I can and I will, watch me!

I can and I will, watch me!

To become a Personal Stylist in my opinion there are 3 requisites: Firstly of course you have to love clothes and putting looks together (Styling), secondly you have to be good with people as it’s (Personal) but to become a successful Personal Stylist and by successful I mean being able to meet your financial goals there is another far more important requisite, a requisite where the clue isn’t in the title and that is you need to have the determination to succeed! So many delegates arrive on the training full of optimism visualizing their new life post training shopping with […]

Why not offer Personal Styling to your existing database of clients and double your income?

Why not offer Personal Styling to your existing database of clients and double your income?

At our training academy we train so many different types of women but a growing group is the woman who already is self-employed, either full or part-time. This could be the woman who has a particular skillset such as the Make-up artist, beautician or hairdresser or it could be the sales savvy women selling products such as jewellery (Stella and Dot stylists) or even make-up (Avon or Mary K representatives). One thing all these women have in common is that they already have a database of clients and most importantly they know how to network and market themselves.   These […]

Can you bring out the best in someone?

  When people enquire on our website to attend one of our training courses we always ask for a phone number, actually unless you give us a number to contact you on the enquiry form doesn’t reach us.

Your first client is you!

Your first client is you!

No matter who walks through the doors of our academy I always say: “your first client is you!” By no means am I trying to insult them by thinking they are not stylish enough to be a Personal Stylist what I’m implying is that there is always room for improvement in everyone of us, myself included. I remember before I went on my own colour analysis training, I honestly thought because I had good youthful olive skin, I could wear any colour I wanted. Wow I was soon (subtly) shown exactly how much older and heavier I could look in […]

What’s the right underwear?

What’s the right underwear?

When I did my training (a very long time ago) with a very famous and expensive training academy one full day was taken up with bra fitting. That’s right we were taught exactly how to measure a client’s bra size. At the time, although painstakingly boring not to mention a little embarrassing I presumed it must have been totally relevant and an essential part of becoming a Personal Stylist. I couldn’t have been more wrong! I soon realised post training when I did take a client bra shopping I was quickly ushered away by the stores professional bra fitter, even […]
