What exactly is a Wardrobe Stylist?

What exactly is a Wardrobe Stylist?

How much confusion can a title cause? It’s funny in these past couple of weeks I’ve had at least 3 calls from women wanting to book onto the ‘Train to be a Wardrobe Stylist’ course who have been in total confusion as to what the job actually entails. Luckily I offer every potential delegate a free 30-minute consultation/chat to find out everything they need to know before committing to any training at our Academy so there’s no embarrassing moment where they realised they’ve actually enrolled on to the completely wrong course! Yes, there are two completely different job descriptions for […]

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. One growing type of delegate that we’ve been meeting a lot of these past couple of years are the women who were originally looking to do a makeup course and instead finds herself choosing a career in personal styling instead.   She’s creative and wants to work for herself and […]

How to build Confidence

How to build Confidence

So many delegates come through our doors and what sets apart the women who go on to be successful personal stylists to the ones that simply don’t is their confidence or rather their belief in themselves. Surprisingly it is not always the ones who grasp all the knowledge straight away or even the most stylish ones; that’s why even I can’t tell during the training what each delegate’s success rate will be. Sometimes I wish I had a magic wand to transform every delegate into a confident personal stylist but confidence doesn’t work that way, it’s one of those things […]

What Trends can my Clients buy?

What Trends can my Clients buy?

As many of you know I started my career as a Personal Stylist in my early thirties and I honestly can say what took me so long to make the career move was my fear of trends! Not clothes and styling but trends and fashion. You see I was well aware of my own body shape’s flaws and assets and combined with a very petite frame there wasn’t many trends I could buy in to. I learnt this in my early 20’s and my motto soon became quality over quantity. This is how I justified all those designer pieces!! Don’t […]

What’s the theme in your client’s Wardrobe?

What’s the theme in your client’s Wardrobe?

What’s the first thing you do when you open the doors of your client’s wardrobe? You look for their theme i.e. what do they have a lot of. In fact you should ask yourself the same question. Even myself if I went to my wardrobe now I know I would see lots of colour; my most flattering colours of course but block colouring is what I do best. What you won’t see is any print. Why not? I honestly don’t know; print is something I just don’t gravitate to. We Personal Stylists are there to point out to our clients […]

Are you creative enough to become a Personal Stylist?

Are you creative enough to become a Personal Stylist?

Have you noticed that when things are meant to be, everything just flows? You no longer have to push the jammed door or struggle to find the right key; the door almost just opens up for you? This is exactly what happened to me once I made the decision to become a Personal Stylist, yes it took me a long time to get to that decision but once I decided personal styling was my calling everything fell into place, it’s almost as if the angels above we’re rejoicing saying: “finally, she’s listened to all the signs we’ve been placing in […]
