Why Christmas is every Personal Stylist’s most productive time!

Why Christmas is every Personal Stylist’s most productive time!

How would it feel to make money whilst you sleep? Like a dream come true, as if Christmas has come early? Well for most of us Personal Stylists that’s exactly how it is! Without doubt Christmas is the most expensive time of the year, not just because we’re buying gifts but because we’re out more, eating more, drinking more and paying for more late night taxi’s. So you can imagine how good it feels that whilst the money in our personal bank account is dwindling money being deposited into our business accounts is flourishing due to increasing sales of our […]

How to dress your clients this Party Season!

How to dress your clients this Party Season!

Party season is here and for all of us Personal Stylists it’s the last bit of Personal Shopping work we have to do before the sales kick in and we take a well-deserved break! This year seems to be busier than usual for me as it feels like clients are wanting to shop for their party looks even earlier than usual and who can blame them as every shop window from Zara to Zadig and Volataire has been screaming out it’s party time! There’s so much choice from sequins to velvet, to lace to animal prints to tuxedos dresses to […]

Are you looking to do a Makeup course in London?

Makeup Course London We get so many different types of delegates at our Training Academy, from women who want to change their career altogether and become personal stylists, to women such as makeup artists and hairdressers who want to add Personal styling as a service to their existing client base.

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 […]

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 […]
