Can I wear prints?

Can I wear prints?

“Can I wear prints?” is a popular question all my clients ask me. The answer is always “yes of course you can!” but where you wear them makes all the difference. Prints seem to have the amazing power to camouflage. Just think of how the leopard and tiger camouflage themselves within the jungle with the help of their printed skins. Unfortunately the same rule does not apply on the body. I often see that the women who want to disguise their heavy bust or their expanding waistline tend to turn to prints as if the print will cover the excess […]

Do men need Personal Stylists?

Do men need Personal Stylists?

Absolutely! Unlike us lovely ladies that have make-up, hair dye and the best support underwear available to us men don’t, what you see is what you get! That’s why their choice of clothes means so much more. From experience I can say women generally want to feel more attractive but a man especially as his bank balance increases worries less if he’s attractive but instead wants to look and feel more distinguished and powerful. A man will hire a personal stylist if he feels it will aid him in his goal of getting that new job or promotion or even […]

Keep Calm anyone can have a Personal Stylist!

Keep Calm anyone can have a Personal Stylist!

When I first decided I wanted to become a Personal Stylist (2006!) I remember despite all my enthusiasm for this fantastic new career choice I was faced with a lot of negativity from my peers in my office, not from the women but from the men! I regularly received comments like: “What people really pay people to take them shopping?” and “Only rich people with ample money to throw away would be silly enough to hire a personal stylist”. Don’t get me wrong I deep down feared they we’re right but luckily something inside me told me to persevere and […]

Addicted to Black…

Addicted to Black…

What’s your relationship like with the colour black? This is the one question I always ask my colour analysis clients or delegates during their training. Why? Because the colour black has so many associations tied to it. 9 out of 10 times the response is always “I love it! Why?” Then they look at me suspiciously and the panic sets in as they’re thinking don’t you dare tell me it’s not one of my flattering colours and they’re suddenly regretting ever booking the session. I respond by saying “why do you love it so much?” and these are the kind […]

Alopecia Areata Awareness Month

Alopecia Areata Awareness Month

Alopecia Areata is something that’s very close to my heart not only have I personally suffered from it but so have so many of my clients and some very close family members. Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles and destroys them. It usually begins with clumps of hair falling out, resulting in totally smooth, round hairless patches on the scalp or other areas of the body. In less extreme cases the hair becomes thinner without noticeable patches of baldness but in extreme cases, complete loss of scalp hair […]

VIP Shopping Days

VIP Shopping Days

Summer time in London you can’t beat it but it is probably one of the busiest times of the year with tourists all over the world wanting to you know what – SHOP! With climates being way too hot in their home countries it’s the perfect excuse to escape the heat and monsoon rains and instead shop for all the bargains in the sales here in London. Ask any Personal Stylist she probably hates and avoids personal shopping with her clients during the peak of the sale period, what with the frustration of most sizes being sold out and endless […]
