How much money can you make as a Personal Stylist?

How much money can you make as a Personal Stylist?

The one question we always get asked during our training course is: “Can you really make money as a Personal Stylist?” and the answer is always YES! Yes you can definitely make a lot of money as a Personal Stylist, (that’s right… shopping for a living!) Of course everything is relative, what does earning a lot of money look like to you? By the time I left my cushy number at Disney, I was accustomed to a certain kind of lifestyle, for me that was paying my mortgage, driving a sports car, holiday frequently and maintaining a shoe addiction! I […]

Personal Shopping Trips for Mums

Imagine this… you’ve dropped the kids off to school, nursery or the babysitter and you’re making your way to meet your Style ME Personal Stylist. Yes for the next 4 hours this is ‘your’ time, where you are number 1, no one’s asking you to do anything for them, no one’s crying for your attention instead some lovely lady is going to style you to perfection… or so she promises… As excited as you are there is probably another part of you that is full of nerves and doubt… “Will she really be able to find me clothes that fit?” […]

Why every mother requires a Personal Stylist

Our primary delegate group at our Training Academy is the mum market. These mums get trained on how to become a Personal Stylist and then go and style their target audience who surprise surprise are other mums.

Ask any woman that has faced motherhood and she will tell you that one of the first things she realised is that working and children are a tough mix.

How to become a Personal stylist PART 3

There are plenty of training academies out there so when you do your research please be sure to find out the style of their training and what they cover on their personal styling courses. Just from my own experience I naively chose an academy because there was a TV celebrity attached to it (I thought it would open doors to that world – it didn’t!). Other academies will associate themselves with aspirational brands like Vogue but just note, if you want to be a personal stylist, celebrities; TV and Vogue don’t really come into play. The next thing you need […]

How to become a Personal stylist PART 2

The first thing you need to ask yourself is what sort of stylist do you want to be? A Fashion Stylist or a Personal Stylist? Because the two couldn’t be more different! A Fashion stylist is someone who selects the clothing for published editorial features, print or television advertising campaigns, music videos and any public appearances made by celebrities. Being a fashion stylist requires you to live and breathe everything to do with fashion and build relationships with people in the fashion industry. Although the job description sounds glamorous it’s the not the most friendliest or easiest of industries. Long […]
