Having a personal stylist has become more acceptable – just like having a personal trainer. A personal stylist can give their clients an enormous confidence boost, help them save money by spending their budget wisely and revamp their image by introducing new brands and styles to their wardrobes. There are so many reasons why a client may book your services!
If you’re serious about your future career and you want to make it as a successful personal stylist, where do you turn?
Here are three valuable tips, which will ensure you make a great start:
1) To gain a credible reputation, research the many image consultant and personal stylist courses available to you – there’s one for everyone. You can opt to study from home and in your own time, participate in a group classroom environment, book one-to-one intensive training or find an online training personal stylist course. Whatever you decide make sure there’s a great aftercare facility and a synergy between you and your trainer/personal stylist – there’s nothing worse than if you don’t see eye to eye with their approach. The launch of a modern, fresh and practical certified personal stylist training course within a classroom environment and via Skype can now be obtained.
2) Look at gaining an internship or work experience with a personal stylist or image consultancy – this will stand you in great stead by learning the ropes inside and out. However, don’t be disgruntled if you’re not given your own clients immediately to work with. Personal styling is such a personal service that most clients may not want anyone else to be there during their styling session. Initially, you will need to show that you’re hard working, build up trust, and show dedication before you’re given such huge responsibility. Being wholly reliable will also be a fantastic attribute to have.
3) Establish yourself as a fashion expert – blogging is huge and continues to push the boundaries. Written content about fashion is one way to build up your reputation online. These days’ home videos are a great way to showcase your styling skills so why not get a group of friends together and have a makeover day! Make sure you film the results and edit into a short video of around 3 minutes. If you don’t know how to set up your own blog then contact other fashion bloggers and offer to guest blog for their sites.
Working, as a personal stylist is hard work, so don’t let anyone tell you any different, but this life changing career does come with massive rewards and the greatest job satisfaction ever!
