Wearing the right colours will make you look slimmer

BLOG – Wearing the right colours will make you look slimmer We get so many clients wanting to know their colours and it’s normally just out of curiosity and they are not really sure what it’s going to actually do for them. We’re not surprised at all to realise that most people haven’t thought about the long list of things wearing the right colours can actually do for you. Wearing black when it’s not your colour? Totally ageing. Wearing a colour that’s too dark for you? This will cause shadows to appear on your face. Wearing a colour that’s too […]

Incremental ways to make money as a Colour Analyst

Incremental ways to make money as a Colour Analyst

One of our most popular courses at the Academy is our ‘Train to be a Colour Analyst’ course. We like to think the reason it’s so popular is because we are the only Academy that can get you trained in one day and we are so competitively priced by comparison. The reason we know this is because our Founder, Nisha, first ventured into Personal Styling by completing her Colour Analysis training at Aston & Hayes and the course was fantastic but it took one week and a hefty £3k to complete! We have the privilege of teaching so many women […]

Do I need to know about fashion and trends to be a Personal Stylist?

Do I need to know about fashion and trends to be a Personal Stylist?

We can honestly say, hand on heart, that you absolutely do not need to be a fashionista to be a great personal stylist. If you have read some of our previous blogs, you will have found out that the key skills you need to be a great stylist is good people skills and the ability to be self-motivated to get the clients. Nisha, Founder of Style ME, didn’t start her career as a Personal Stylist until her early thirties and she tells delegates that the reason it took her so long to make her career move was her fear of […]

When is the right age to become a Personal Stylist?

This is a subject we have had to think long and hard about be because when we first started the Academy, we had no idea who would be attracted to this great job. Initially we thought we would see the young twenty somethings who are into fashion and shopping and would love a career that combines the two. In fact, the first course we ever offered was in Soho House to this very group so on that basis I guess that’s why we thought they were our target market. But we couldn’t have been more wrong! The very next course […]

We are not just Personal Stylists!

We are not just Personal Stylists!

So what do we mean when we say we are not just Personal Stylists? Well, it was pretty apparent to us when we first ventured into Personal Styling that our services required so much more than a stylish eye. What we found with clients was that we generally would only get a call when things were stagnating, and they were keen to find a better version of themselves. The first obvious thing to do when you are at a crossroads in your life is to look at how you are presenting yourself. If you’re dressing for the office every day […]

Do I need to come from a Fashion Background to be a Stylist?

Do I need to come from a Fashion Background to be a Stylist?

If we had a penny for every time we were asked this question by interested delegates…we’d have even more shoes! But in all seriousness, it’s such a valid question and it’s easy to understand especially if your current job does not require you take even a remote interest in fashion or personal style. What we mean by that is, you may be working in an environment where you have to get dressed every day and it allows you to experiment with different trends and styles. Perhaps you are like Nisha who, even though she had a totally corporate career and […]
