How to become a Virtual Stylist

So who doesn’t love online shopping for fashion? Sitting there in your lunch hour or in the evening with a glass of wine in your hand and some of the best (and worst!) fashion buys are made. If you love it as much as we do, have you ever considered that you can earn money from shopping for others online? At Style ME we love all reasons to shop and it was after a few years of styling our clients in stores that we realised we had more and more requests from clients that wanted our styling services but couldn’t […]

Want to be a Personal Stylist – Your first client is you!

Want to be a Personal Stylist - Your first client is you!

When I speak to delegates prior to their training the response as to why they want to become a personal stylist is nearly always the same: “I love clothes, fashion and shopping and my friends are always complimenting my style and asking me to take them shopping, so I’m thinking I might as well get paid for doing a job I love”.

I know they don’t believe me […]

Teenagers: A growing demographic wanting to have a Colour Analysis session!

When I think back to my 13 year old self, experimenting with makeup and concluding that blue eyeliner, an orange foundation and a deep red lipstick were my most flattering I can’t help but wonder where was my mum to put me right?

Roll on to a new generation of 13 year olds not only do they look gorgeous with perfectly groomed eyebrows they are serious about their image. My 13-year-old nieces are addicted […]

Train to be a Colour Analyst and watch your client base grow!

You’ll always remember your first clients. I was trying so hard to make a great first impression I seem to remember every feeling; the nerves I felt during that first meeting, to the panic I felt that I wouldn’t find them the right clothes during the personal shopping trip, to the acceleration I felt when they showered me with praise during the end of session glass of wine where they’d promised me they’d be recommending me to all their friends and family, to the slight disappointment I felt when the queue of recommendations didn’t follow. It wasn’t long before I […]

Colour Analysis Training – Do I really need it?

Colour Analysis Training – Do I really need it?

Roll back 15 years ago through a crazy twist of fate I came to the realisation that a career in Personal Styling was the vocation I had been dreaming of. How had I not thought of it any sooner, I kept thinking? I loved fashion, I’m a ‘people’s person’ and I’m self motivated… determined not to waste any more time, I was raring to go and started to research the appropriate training. It didn’t take long however before I was totally overwhelmed, not only by the amount of courses that were out there but by the amount of money training […]
