What’s the right underwear?

What’s the right underwear?

When I did my training (a very long time ago) with a very famous and expensive training academy one full day was taken up with bra fitting. That’s right we were taught exactly how to measure a client’s bra size. At the time, although painstakingly boring not to mention a little embarrassing I presumed it must have been totally relevant and an essential part of becoming a Personal Stylist. I couldn’t have been more wrong! I soon realised post training when I did take a client bra shopping I was quickly ushered away by the stores professional bra fitter, even […]

What’s my right shade of Yellow?

What’s my right shade of Yellow?

Did you know that there’s a right yellow for everyone? It’s one of the few colours everyone can wear but it’s strangely the one colour that most women avoid. During my colour analysis sessions and in the colour analysis training I always ask: “how do you feel about yellow?” and the response almost always relates to the client’s childhood: “my mum says it doesn’t suit me or I had a yellow jumper when I was younger that I hated.” The funniest thing is the women who say this are usually blonde and then once I point it out to them […]

How to make your client stand out for all the right reasons…

How to make your client stand out for all the right reasons…

Special occasion shopping is a popular request for all Personal Stylists. The client may be attending a wedding, a special birthday party, an interview or even going on a hot date. When we say ‘special’ what we really mean is it’s an important event to the client and yes she/he is willing to pay for a Personal Stylist to get her look just right, to make her feel special, admired and to stand out for all the right reasons. This is a big responsibility for any personal stylist because their reputation is on the line; they only have one chance […]

Help your clients to stop impulse buying!

Help your clients to stop impulse buying!

When I train people to become a Wardrobe Stylist I always advise them to look out for the impulse buys that are in their clients wardrobe, you can tell what these items are because they usually still have the price tag on or are guiltily thrown at the back of the wardrobe! And it’s because of these impulse buys that the 80/20 rule applies: you wear 20% of your wardrobe 80% of the time because 80% of your wardrobe isn’t working for you, it either doesn’t suit your current lifestyle, your bodyshape or your colouring! It’s not that these aren’t […]

Do you dream of becoming a Personal Stylist and getting out of the Rat Race?

Do you dream of becoming a Personal Stylist and getting out of the Rat Race?

I always smile when the well-established career girl comes to one of our training courses. By career girl you know who I mean: the Accountant, Lawyer, IT consultant, Marketing Manager or even the PA; it’s the woman who’s used to working long hours with no flexibility, craving to do a job she loves and dare I say it, express her creativity; helping women look and feel their best.   These women usually attend one of our 1-day courses with the mind-set of “what’s the harm? Let me try one course and see if it’s for me”. They juggle their diaries […]

Train to be a Personal Stylist in just 3 days!

Train to be a Personal Stylist in just 3 days!

The one thing no one can accuse us of at Style ME Training is not understanding our customer. When we launched our training academy in 2012 we wanted to offer our courses as short courses for busy women who could book in a day or two at a time and learn Personal Styling at their own pace. After two successful years teaching this model, we soon found that our customers wanted more intense training, learning everything there is to get started as a stylists and run a successful business so we introduced our 5 day Intensive course…but there was still […]
