8 Things to Consider When Hiring a Personal Stylist or Image Consultant

Wondering which personal stylist to work with? Too many choices? Choosing a personal stylist is not the easiest thing to do, nowadays, with the abundance of options out there. With the economy the way it is and high competitiveness within the job and dating markets, image consulting is becoming a mainstream, standard service no longer reserved for just the rich and famous.

If you're looking to hire a personal stylist and you've never worked with one before you may not be sure what you're looking for. Here are a few helpful tips for you to consider when hiring a personal stylist.

WHAT SKIN TONE COLOR ARE YOU?

No, we're not trying to be racist or anything like that. We just want you to look your best!

Part of being able to dress in your most flattering styles is understanding what colors look best on you. If you've got that figured out you'll be able to wisely choose outfits that really make you stand out and look your best.

First, you've got to know what your skin tone is before you move on to choosing the most attractive clothes colors for your wardrobe.

THE ZOE EFFECT

Being a fashion and wardrobe stylist is not easy, but it's one of the most glamorized behind-the-scenes jobs around. Lots of young, aspiring people ask me how they can "become a stylist", like it's as simple as choosing to bob their hair or eat a burrito for lunch. They see stylists depicted in the media as getting to attend the hottest parties, being gifted items all the time, and getting to "shop for a living". This then makes them think "OMG, that would be so fun to get paid to do!"

What most of these people don't realize is that even Rachel Zoe worked very hard to get to where she is, and any of us actively in this career have dedicated years and lots of money (stocking our extensive kits, throwing freebies to potential clients/traveling distances to build our books, attending fashion/business school, agent fees) to get to where we are.

They happen to be meeting Zoe's public persona after she's been in it for over 20 years...

SUMMER LOVIN' SUMMER STYLIN' FOR THE LADIES!

Summer lovin, had me some fu-un
Summer lovin, dressed for the su-un,
Saw a dress, cute as can bee-ee!
Bought some sandals, they’re just sex-xy-eee…

Okay, so maybe they’re not the exact lyrics from the movie. Close enough. Picky aren’t you?

Spring is here and summer is not far behind! How do you prepare for spring and summer? Exercise? Starvation…er, I mean diet? Tanning salon? Shopping….?

Personally, I prefer the latter – summer style!
