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”.

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 […]
