Shoulders Back, Head up High!

Shoulders Back, Head up High!

Summer is the time of year when we’re all supposed to be showing off our well-toned and tanned legs right? Yes! Even more so on a hot summer night out, I can hear you say! But what if you’ve got a client who doesn’t like her legs, are you supposed to force her into liking them and convince her there’s nothing wrong with them? Well the answer is no… In the world of Personal styling you will find there are those very few women who seriously have nothing wrong with them but are so self critical that they simply won’t show […]

Could your Redundancy be a Blessing in Disguise?

Could your Redundancy be a Blessing in Disguise?

Being made redundant hurts, I’m not talking about taking voluntary redundancy; I’m talking about when out of the blue you get called into the office and your line manager tells you they’re having to make cuts and have decided to let you go. No matter how much you didn’t love your job or how many others have also been let go it’s still a massive blow. A blow to your confidence: “Am I really that indispensable?” and more importantly it’s a huge blow to your security: “How will I pay the bills, what if I don’t get another job?” But […]

The Best Preparation For Tomorrow Is Doing Your Best Today!

The Best Preparation For Tomorrow Is Doing Your Best Today!

  When my delegates come for the 1 week Intensive Training course, day 1 or rather the 1sthour where we get to know each other can seem pretty daunting. Whilst reading out the week’s agenda clients can get pretty overwhelmed, because there’s just so much on it! From personal shopping, to wardrobe styling to colour analysis to a real client practice, to the photo shoot and finally to the business planning. I can always sense their anxiety questioning firstly how will we fit it all in? Secondly will they be able to keep up? And thirdly, will they be any […]

Confidence comes from being prepared

Confidence comes from being prepared

During all of our training courses there’s equal amounts of theory and practical work. It’s only when you practice the theory you’ve been taught, that the knowledge sinks in. In essence there isn’t that much theory, in fact by 1pm on the first day of the training I always say to the delegates, that’s as hard as the knowledge will get. To their relief the delegates smile and they’re probably thinking this newfound career choice to be a personal stylist is going to be a breeze…. That is until the practical work begins. I pride myself on the formula I’ve […]

What’s the right age to become a Personal Stylist?

What’s the right age to become a Personal Stylist?

Here at Style ME Training we pride ourselves on helping any woman of any age to launch their dream career as a Personal Stylist! Anyone from their 20’s to even their 70’s all are welcome through our doors. When we first launched the Academy back in 2012 we presumed our delegates would predominantly by fashionistas in their 20’s looking to break free from their jobs in Retail wanting to launch their own freelance personal styling careers; how wrong we were! Instead, the 40 something woman has been our most popular age group on the course and when I say 40 […]

The Teacher becomes the Student

The Teacher becomes the Student

At our Academy we meet so many different types of delegates from all kinds of backgrounds: different ages, different career backgrounds as well as different cultures and although I’m excited to meet and train them all there’s one kind that even I’m a little intimidated by. Who is it? It’s the Teacher/ Trainer! Why? Because as you’ll all get to find out when you meet me on day one of the training is that I haven’t got a training background nor do I come from a fashion background. I instead have a maths degree and after years in the corporate […]
