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 […]

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.

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?

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). But she needn’t have been depressed because her 50’s in reflection were probably her best years yet. Why? Because by the time a woman reaches her 50’s she finally knows who she is! What she has accomplished, whether it’s raising a family, or raising a career, maintaining a long marriage, getting divorced or caring for elderly parents, allows her to accept that she is a survivor […]

Sell the bride her perfect ‘white’ wedding dress…

Sell the bride her perfect ‘white’ wedding dress…

If you work or own a bridal boutique the one thing you can be absolutely certain about is that your customer is looking for is the perfect dress for her big day; a dress that will fit like a glove and one she will look absolutely stunning in, no matter what her style. As a personal stylist I have had privilege to style so many brides, from helping them choose that all-important dress to getting them their honeymoon capsule wardrobe. You might think it’s a little self indulgent hiring a personal stylist for their wedding shopping but so many women […]
