Why not offer Personal Styling to your existing database of clients and double your income?

Why not offer Personal Styling to your existing database of clients and double your income?

At our training academy we train so many different types of women but a growing group is the woman who already is self-employed, either full or part-time. This could be the woman who has a particular skillset such as the Make-up artist, beautician or hairdresser or it could be the sales savvy women selling products such as jewellery (Stella and Dot stylists) or even make-up (Avon or Mary K representatives). One thing all these women have in common is that they already have a database of clients and most importantly they know how to network and market themselves.   These […]

Is 50 the new 30?

Correct me if I’m wrong but reaching 50 used to mark the beginning of old age, or at least that’s how my mum perceived it as she approached her 50th birthday (15 years ago).

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 […]

How to become a Personal stylist PART 2

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 […]
