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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
