Certified Style Coach™ Rayne Parvis 

Sharing an update from Style Coach™, Rayne Parvis...

What am I doing? Oh…just working on my graphics to announce: I’m officially a certified Style Coach….who graduated with…drum roll….HONORS!

For the record, even though I have a college degree, those 5 years, yes 5, were sooo painful. I never really got excited about any of my classes & dreaded every minute (except the partying;))…I wanted to be done with it.

But when you find something you’re passionate about it’s like being a kid in a candy store, or in this case a lady with a 1 million dollar gift card to Bloomingdales, & you want to buy everything. Shout out to anyone who strives to be the best at what ever they choose to be!

PS. Not to bore you but wanted to share a little more: A Style Coach is someone who has been professionally trained to be able to help others to enhance and embrace their physical appearance, so that it harmonizes with their personality and the messages they would like to express. They also help others to “love the skin they’re in” through an understanding of self-image psychology.

Hi there!

This is Kate here from the Style Coaching™ HQ where we understand the many key factors that go into creating a successful career as an image consultant, personal stylist, personal shopper or Style Coach™. Studying a credible training programme is critical, but there are also personal attributes that we help our ambitious students to develop and nurture within themselves.  

Today I would like to run through with you the top 5 inspiring habits of all successful Style Coaches™.

– So, Habit Number One

They ask quality questions! What is my ambition? What am I here to achieve? What is it that I want to contribute as a Style Coach? Who is it that I really want to connect with? What are my dreams? What are my hopes? What kind of feelings do I want to generate every day? And if I have a vision for my career, what specifically does this vision look like?

– In at Number Two

They allow themselves to fall in love with their career! We all know what it feels like to be in love – it’s not hard work to give your time and attention to something that makes you feel alive! If you keep doing more of what makes you joyful, then you are going to radiate the most magnetic energy and guess what happens? People get drawn towards working with you!

– The Third Inspiring Habit  is…

Great Style Coaches choose to have a little faith in themselves! Fear and doubt will be there, but they don’t let it stop them from moving purposefully in the direction that they have decided is right for them. They trust that they can overcome challenges, that they can figure this out, that they CAN and they WILL claim what they aspire to BE, DO and HAVE in life.

– In at Number Four….

They are stubborn and persistent in the pursuit of their goals. But, vitally, they are also FLEXIBLE in their approach! They keep perspective and don’t lose focus when times get tough. They never give up hope or stop trying, but they’re also prepared to be honest about the best route to their destination. They will change their approach as many times as it takes in order to get to where they want to be.

– And Last but not Least,

All great Style Coaches surround themselves with positive people. Instead of listening to those who drag them down with their own fears and limitations, they find an inspiring and passionate peer group. Mentors, who will help a Style Coach to raise their game, up-level their expectations, and expand themselves to truly be the best they can be!

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.

An important message for anyone thinking about becoming a Personal Stylist, Image Consultant or Personal Shopper

When you sign-up for an image consultant training course or personal stylist course you’ll learn how to make people look physically beautiful - you’ll learn the rules of “what not to wear” and “what to wear”, how to use hair and makeup to enhance people’s appearance, and how to use the science of color analysis to accentuate people’s eye colour, hair and skin tone. 

But, as this video from life coach Brendon Burchard so perfectly captures, “real beauty” can’t be defined simply by what you wear or whether your hair and makeup are correct for this season’s latest trends. 

“Image consultants” and “personal stylists” are supposed to be the experts in looking beautiful, but really they are only experts in one dimension of “beauty” - that is what you see in the mirror. This is where Style Coaching™ comes in!

At the Style Coaching Institute® we share Brendon Burchard’s passion for authentic beauty: beauty that comes from inside each person and flows out of them in the way they embrace life, they way they connect with people, they way they are true to themselves, and the way that they are uniquely individual.

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 skills and knowledge of image consultancy 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. It’s not just about having a positive appearance, it’s about having a positive body image. 

The truth is that beauty is multi-faceted and as unique as you are. So, if you want to become a true beauty expert, then Style Coaching™ might be the perfect fit for you. 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 enhancing your appearance and embracing what makes you uniquely beautiful 
  • No matter your size, shape or weight, if you feel beautiful on the inside then you can look beautiful on the outside
  • Making a good impression is a combination of the right clothes, grooming, body language and attitude
  • In essence, “looking good is only half the picture”

If these beliefs resonate with you and make sense, then a career in Personal Styling or Image Consultancy would not be fulfilling and rewarding on a long-term basis. Style Coaching™ will give you unlimited opportunities for personal and professional growth, fulfilment and rewards.

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
