How to build Confidence

How to build Confidence

So many delegates come through our doors and what sets apart the women who go on to be successful personal stylists to the ones that simply don’t is their confidence or rather their belief in themselves. Surprisingly it is not always the ones who grasp all the knowledge straight away or even the most stylish ones; that’s why even I can’t tell during the training what each delegate’s success rate will be. Sometimes I wish I had a magic wand to transform every delegate into a confident personal stylist but confidence doesn’t work that way, it’s one of those things […]

What Trends can my Clients buy?

What Trends can my Clients buy?

As many of you know I started my career as a Personal Stylist in my early thirties and I honestly can say what took me so long to make the career move was my fear of trends! Not clothes and styling but trends and fashion. You see I was well aware of my own body shape’s flaws and assets and combined with a very petite frame there wasn’t many trends I could buy in to. I learnt this in my early 20’s and my motto soon became quality over quantity. This is how I justified all those designer pieces!! Don’t […]

What’s the theme in your client’s Wardrobe?

What’s the theme in your client’s Wardrobe?

What’s the first thing you do when you open the doors of your client’s wardrobe? You look for their theme i.e. what do they have a lot of. In fact you should ask yourself the same question. Even myself if I went to my wardrobe now I know I would see lots of colour; my most flattering colours of course but block colouring is what I do best. What you won’t see is any print. Why not? I honestly don’t know; print is something I just don’t gravitate to. We Personal Stylists are there to point out to our clients […]

Do you want to be a Menswear Stylist?

Do you want to be a Menswear Stylist?

When I asked myself that question over 10 years ago when I had just started styling I definitely remember thinking NO! Not because I didn’t like menswear but because I just couldn’t imagine actually styling them and I honestly didn’t think there was a market for it. Don’t get me wrong I saw plenty of men on a daily basis wearing badly fitted suits, terrible jeans and not to mention awful shoes but would those men actually pay for a Personal Stylist? Roll on a few months and after styling several women during our congratulatory drink celebrating their new look, […]

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 […]
