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 […]

The Teacher becomes the Student

The Teacher becomes the Student

At our Academy we meet so many different types of delegates from all kinds of backgrounds: different ages, different career backgrounds as well as different cultures and although I’m excited to meet and train them all there’s one kind that even I’m a little intimidated by. Who is it? It’s the Teacher/ Trainer! Why? Because as you’ll all get to find out when you meet me on day one of the training is that I haven’t got a training background nor do I come from a fashion background. I instead have a maths degree and after years in the corporate […]

What are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

What I love as my job as a trainer more than anything else is meeting the varied delegates that attend the training. In particular when I do the training as a one on one, I really get to know that delegate well and more often than not I learn just as much from them as they do from me. Take Helen Gormey for instance; when I had the brief chat with her on the phone prior to her attendance I discovered she’s a true professional in world of coaching and psychotherapy. With more letters against her name I was honored […]

How far would you travel for your Training?

How far would you travel for your Training?

I’m proud to say we have so many international delegates that come to our academy. From the US to South America to India, Dubai and of course our neighbouring European countries, we’ve welcomed and trained them all. They come to London primarily because their country of residence simply doesn’t offer all of the training modules that we cover here at Style ME Training at an affordable price. Imagine the frustration they’ve finally realisedW they want to become a Personal Stylist but simply can’t find any nearby Academies to train them. Instead of giving up, they take the first step to […]
