STYLE COACHING INSTITUTE®
PERSONAL STYLING BLOG

“If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” – Roald Dahl

At the Style Coaching Institute® we don’t just believe in the power of appearance; we believe that people are so much more than just a reflection in the mirror and that confidence and positive body-image are vital components of ‘style’ of a personal ‘style’!

Here at the Style Coaching Institute® our training is based on the beliefs that:

* Style is as much about ‘inner confidence’ as it is about the clothes you wear
* Looking good is about embracing what makes you uniquely beautiful
* No matter your size, shape or weight, if you feel confident on the inside, then you will look beautiful on the outside
* Making a good impression is a combination of the right clothes, grooming, body language and attitude

If these beliefs resonate with you, then a career in Personal Styling or Image Consultancy might be selling yourself short! On the other hand, “Style Coaching™” will give you unlimited opportunities for personal and professional growth, fulfilment and rewards. This is true whether you are a complete newcomer to the image profession, or whether you are experienced professional from a related field.

In just 10 years, our groundbreaking Style Coach™ training courses have been studied in more countries than any other image training course in the world. We train and certify prospective and aspiring image consultants, personal stylists, and personal shoppers to pursue the career of their dreams as professional Style Coaches™.

Style Coaching™ has reached Andorra, Angola, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Canada, China, Columbia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, France, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, Great Britain & Northern Ireland, Guernsey, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, the Netherlands, Trinidad & Tobago, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, the USA, Vietnam and Qatar.

Finally! We’re getting around to sharing some pictures from the last day of our ‘Style Coach™ VIP Diploma Course’ held in London in October. We had such an excellent week with a wonderful group of ladies joining us from the UK, the USA, Bahrain and Ghana.

About Us: 

Our innovative and original stylist training courses have been studied in more countries than any other image training course in the world. We train and certify experienced and aspiring image consultants, personal stylists, personal shoppers, personal branding coaches, colour consultants and life coaches to pursue the career of their dreams as professional Style Coaches™.

In just 10 years, Style Coaching™ has reached Andorra, Angola, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Canada, China, Columbia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, France, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, Great Britain & Northern Ireland, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Kuwait, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, the Netherlands, Trinidad & Tobago, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, the USA, Vietnam, Qatar and counting!

A diverse cast of models shows how the standard of beauty for women has changed dramatically over time. The fact is that we are irreplaceably beautiful manifestations of life, and when we can love our entire selves inside and out, then we become empowered in the skin that we are in today. It’s not enough to just be kind and compliment others; we must be kind to ourselves too.

When you become a certified Style Coach™, you become an expert in every dimension of “beauty” (not just what you see on the surface, but what’s going on beneath the surface too). We believe in the power in appearance (which is why we teach you all the core lessons of image consultancy training and personal styling), but we take this much deeper by combining the power of appearance with life coach training, and self-image psychology. Our focus isn’t just on how you “look”, it’s on how you “feel”.

How to take your Image Consulting Career to the Next Level

In today’s world creative careers are on the rise and thus the market has become saturated with competition. But competition isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It can give you the push you need to elevate your status and become a real rising star. This is no different if you have chosen a career in Image Consultancy.

As an Image Consultant you may have decided that it is time to take your career to the next level and get a leg up on your competitors. There are a few areas you may want to focus on to get you started.

 Establish your Brand as an Image Professional

 Many people confuse branding with a fancy logo or a cool letterhead and though those elements do play an important role in establishing your businesses’ image it is only a part of the equation. Your image consulting company has a brand that goes much deeper. It is how your business is perceived by others. When establishing your brand you want to determine three key factors:

  1. Your brand’s voice: This is the tone of all communications across every platform. Establishing a unique voice means you will better be able to connect with individuals who will be interested in the personal styling services that you have to offer.

  2. Brand values: Your brand ‘values’ determine how you will run your business as well as the kinds of clients you serve and the quality of service you provide. What matters most to you when styling a client, and what does your work as an image consultant really stand for?

  3. Your Key Message: This is most important thing you want your potential clients to know. Knowing this will help you when determining how to market to potential clients. What are your beliefs about a person’s appearance, and why does appearance matter so much?

Once these three elements have been defined you now have a strong brand Identity. You know where you are going and how to get there. You now have a unique voice that will allow you to step away from the clutter of other image consultants who are providing the same or similar services.

Companies like Apple do this well. They use these elements to build an emotional bond with their existing and potential customers. So much so that customers don’t even mind shelling out few hundred dollars more for their products because they have formed a relationship with the brand and are aligned with it’s values.

Certified Style Coaches™ also understand the importance of personal branding and how to use it to build up powerful states of rapport with their clients. They are very much connected with the values that represent the Style Coaching™ brand and the key message that “looking good is only half the picture”. Whether a person “feels” beautiful or not, is only partially defined by what they see in the mirror – that’s why certified Style Coaches™ also help their clients to have a beautiful inner self and a positive body-image that beneficially impacts every area of their lives.

Increase your Visibility

If you want to take your Image Consultancy career to the next level you have to put yourself out there and do something that sets you apart from the competition. That’s why so many Image Consultants are choosing to continue their learning and growth by becoming Certified Style Coaches™.

In the past 10 years, social media has taken over the internet and businesses don’t want to be left behind. As an Image Consultant, social media can be a great way to communicate to the public and get visibility. Use these networks to show ‘before and afters’ of clients you’ve worked with, share style tips, promote your services and answer questions from potential clients.

Platforms like FacebookPolyvore, Pinterest and YouTube are driven by visuals and are great for showing your personal styling skills. While, Twitter can be used for hosting live chat sessions and sharing tips. This will help you to connect more with your target and learn about their needs.

Though it is great to get online, don’t knock good old-fashioned networking. Go to fashion and beauty events and conferences, strike up a conversation with someone in the line at your favourite clothes shop, or book public speaking engagements where you can spread the word about your personal styling business. Don’t be shy about telling people what you do and sharing your knowledge. Always keep your business cards handy so people have a way to contact you after that first introduction.

 Know your Client’s Needs

This seems like a no-brainer but you would be surprised how many image consultant entrepreneurs underestimate the power of knowing their client’s needs. Most successful Image Consultants work with several clients who all have different needs. It is important that you take the time to understand their specific needs, thus improving the quality of the service you provide. When your clients feel comfortable that you understand what they want, you have converted a one-time client into a repeat customer!

Develop Image Consulting Products

Being an Image Consultant means your primary source of income is the service you provide. However, there’s only one you. What if you could duplicate yourself and broaden your customer base? Developing unique image and style products can accomplish exactly that. Products can range from books and ebooks, exclusive video series and useful printables. Whether your products are sold through your website or available in stores they will give you the opportunity to not only reach a larger audience, but to establish yourself as an image industry expert.

Be Willing to Learn

Constantly educate yourself so that you continue to raise your game and keep the competition playing catch up. This is the information age and you can’t afford to be left behind. Whether it is personal styling workshops, reviewing or refreshing your course materials from the Style Coaching Institute or buying books on various personal styling and beauty topics. It is important that you stay up to date, so you can provide the best service to your clients.

These are only a few ideas on how you can elevate your Image Consulting career to the next level. At the end of the day you have to be willing to put in the work to see real growth. Hard work, dedication, persistence and patience is the winning formula.

Today’s actionable is to decide three steps that you believe will help your Image Consultant business to soar.

What do you see when you look in the mirror?

Watch the video here: http://bit.ly/1yrCxYG

On the set of John Legend’s “You and I” music video, 63 women were asked what they see when they look in the mirror. “When I look in the mirror” is a behind the scenes exploration of each woman’s thoughts and insights as they take a deep look into the mirror and reflect on themselves and their experiences. Dozens of interviews were conducted over the course of twelve days to cultivate this collection of voices. From cancer survivors to a middle schooler facing bullying, each woman’s answer is indicative of her unique life experiences. Through interview, vérité filming, and staged recreations, this short documentary will deeply explore female self-image, self-judgement, and ultimately, self-love. #OPERATIONGIRL

Did you know that Style Coaching™ is so much more than image consultancy or personal styling? Style Coaching™ is the only specialisation that truly recognises the connection between every part of your life. It’s not just about the physical image you see reflected in the mirror; it’s about the thoughts you have about that image. How you “see” yourself isn’t just influenced by your hair or makeup, your clothing choices, or your age. It’s influenced by your beliefs, your life experiences, the inner challenges you might be facing.

When you train to become an image consultant or take a personal styling course, you will learn all the skills to dress someone for their body shape and colour season. You’ll learn how to do personal shopping and give wardrobe advice. Most image consultants and personal stylists love their careers, and they find that the most rewarding aspect is seeing the positive impact it can have on a person’s life. There’s no doubt that changes to your appearance can have a dramatic influence on your confidence and self-esteem. When you train to become a certified Style Coach™ you’ll get to learn everything from the world of image consultancy and personal styling, but you’ll also get to explore the fascinating depths of a person’s internal self-image.

As a professional Style Coach™ you’ll have the unique opportunity to work closely with your clients and support them not just to see an attractive reflection in the mirror, but also to nurture positive thoughts about themselves and genuinely learn to “love the skin they’re in”. Beauty comes in every shape, size, gender and race… Style Coaching™ recognises this, and enables you to help others to live happier and more fulfilled lives, not just change their wardrobe choices.

25 figure-flattering, yet glam one piece swimsuits

Cameron Russell admits she won “a genetic lottery”: she’s tall, pretty and an underwear model. But don’t judge her by her looks. In this fearless talk, she takes a wry look at the industry that had her looking highly seductive at barely 16 years old.

Cameron Russell has stomped the runways for Victoria’s Secret and Chanel, and has appeared in many fashion magazines. But she is much more than just a pretty face.

Why you should listen:
Cameron Russell has spent the last decade modeling. A Victoria’s Secret favorite, she has appeared in multiple international editions of Vogue as well as in ads for brands like Ralph Lauren and Benetton. But she feels at her core that image isn’t everything.

Cameron runs the blog ArtRoots.info, which is dedicated to covering grassroots public art and political power. She also experiments with creating street art herself. In addition, Cameron is the director of The Big Bad Lab, which creates participatory art that aims to include people in radical demonstrations of positive social change.
She’s a co-founder of the new web-based magazine Interrupt, about women, identity, the internet and taking action. 

What we believe:
Like Cameron, we believe that beauty is about so much more than a pretty face. Here at the Style Coaching Institute®  we believe in the power of appearance, but unlike traditional image consultancy training courses, our courses also focus on helping men and women to cultivate self-esteem, confidence and a positive body image from the inside out. 

If you have a passion for style, colour and fashion, then a career in personal styling  might something you’ve considered in the past. So, what’s held you back? Many of the individuals who choose to become certified Style Coaches™ think about becoming a personal stylist  or image consultant first… But, they usually have a feeling that ‘something’ is missing from the world of personal styling and image consultancy. They can’t quite define what “it” is, but they have the feeling that there is more to life than simply striving to “look good”. And they would be absolutely right.

When these same people find Style Coaching™ they instantly know that they’ve found the missing piece: a holistic approach that embraces the whole person, inside and out, and recognises that people are more than a reflection in the mirror.

What do you believe?
If you would like to help others to discover their inner and outer beauty then becoming a Certified Style Coach™ might be the vocation you have been waiting for. Our diploma courses offer you so much more than a personal stylist course, image consultancy course or personal shopping training. We include powerful life coach trainingpersonal branding,  self-image psychology, and all the other personal development tools you need to bring out the potential in every client.

We offer image training courses in LondonSingapore, and New Zealand, and our online courses are available worldwide. In fact, Style Coaching™ has reached over 63 countries including:

Andorra – Australia – Austria – Bahrain – Belgium – Canada – China – Croatia – Cyprus - Czech Republic – Denmark – Egypt – France – Georgia – Germany – Ghana - Great Britain & Northern Ireland - Guernsey – Hong Kong – Hungary – Indonesia – Ireland - Isle of Man – Israel – Italy – Japan – Jersey – Kuwait – Luxembourg – Malaysia – Malta – Mexico - New Zealand – Nigeria – Philippines – Poland – Portugal – Romania - Saudi Arabia – Singapore - South Africa – Spain – Sweden – Switzerland – Thailand - The Netherlands – Turkey – United Arab Emirates – USA – Vietnam – Qatar

What are you looking forward to after the holidays have ended?

 
Calling all aspiring Personal Stylists, Image Consultants, Personal Shoppers, Wardrobe Consultants, Colour Consultants, and Fashion Stylists!! 

It’s that time of year when many of us are planning to get away on holiday, enjoy some sunshine, and take some time off, right? But thinking ahead to September (when it’s back to school, back to work, or just back to “normal”) can feel a bit deflating, and when the holidays are over you can tend to lose that feeling of aniticipation and excitement that you felt in July and August.

Imagine what it would feel like to have something truly inspiring to look forward to, something that fills you with excitement right now, and something that you know will open up new doors and new possibilities for the future?

We’re touching base with you today to let you know that we still have a small number of places remaining on our ‘VIP Fast-Track Style Coaching™ Diploma Course’ starting this September, and our prestigious online personal styling course is available all year round (you could even start today). 
 
We would love to help you gain all the knowledge, skills, resources, support and experience you need to begin a new career in Style Coaching™, Personal Styling or Image Consultancy. Our training team has helped over 1000 people in 63 countries to pursue careers in personal styling, so we know what it takes and we have a tried and tested formula for your success.

Thinking about becoming a personal stylist? If so, you might be asking yourself, “Is a career in personal styling, fashion styling, or image consultancy right for me?”

If you have always loved fashion, shopping, clothes and beauty then your passions and hobbies could also enable you to have your dream career! If you’re passionate about looking good and feeling great, then a career as a Personal Stylist, Personal Shopper, Image Consultant, or Color Consultant might be the perfect choice for you; you can earn a good income from doing what you love!

It’s incredible to think that new figures published by the British Fashion Council on the first day of London Fashion Week value the fashion industry’s contribution to the UK economy at £26 billion.

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: ‘These latest figures are clear evidence of the hugely important contribution that fashion makes to our economy. It is a dynamic industry whose value is increasing thanks to the dazzling creativity of our designers, the brilliant colleges that bring up the next waves of talent and a fast moving retail sector, which covers the spectrum of great style from bespoke to high street. My office will continue to work with the British Fashion Council to ensure that London remains on the front row in the international fashion stakes.’

The great news is that continued growth is expected around the world for the fashion industry, and many economies are seeing a huge surge in the demand for certified personal stylists and authentic ‘Style Coaches™’. In fact, there’s never been a better time to invest in a career in personal styling and image consultancy and your dream career might be much closer than you realize!
