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.

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.

What’s the difference between Personal Styling and Style Coaching™?
When you train to become a Personal Stylist, Image Consultant or Personal Shopper, you will learn how to help others enhance their physical appearance through clothes, accessories, colors, and makeup. A Style Coach™ is also highly-trained in all these professional styling skills and they are also trained in powerfully transformative life coaching skills.

In fact, the difference between the results of Style Coaching™, and those of Personal Styling or Image Consulting is staggering. Style Coaching™ offers a complete and holistic approach that revolutionizes how Personal Stylists and Image Consultants have worked since the 1980’s. A Style Coach™ doesn’t just believe in the power of appearance; they also believe that people are more than just a reflection in the mirror and that confidence and positive body-image are vital components of ‘style’ of a personal ‘style’!
So, should you become a Personal Stylist or a Style Coach™? The answer to this question can only be discovered by examining your own beliefs.

If these beliefs resonate with you and make sense, then a career in Personal Styling or Image Consultancy would be selling yourself short.

All of us have experienced a range of emotions while trying on clothes in the changing room. For those who are confident and self-assured shoppers, the ‘changing room’ can be a place full of creativity and excitement, but for many others it can much less positive associations!
Although deciphering flaws and assets is a crucial part of looking our best, it can also raise some very sensitive issues, of which a Style Coach™ needs to be conscious and considerate. In the necessary process of a Style Coach™ getting to know their client’s body shape, they will usually also become aware of areas that the client feels unhappy with and would prefer to disguise. Certified Style Coaches™ are professional trained to help their clients look more positively at their perceived flaws and focus their attention on their best assets.
At the core of Style Coach™ training is the belief that looking good and feeling great comes from focusing on what you want, not what you don’t want. This is because in life we tend to attract more of what we focus our attention on. Focusing on the positive rather than the negative makes people look at themselves from a fresh perspective and in a completely different light. We each have features that we admit to liking about ourselves; it’s not arrogant to say that you have beautiful legs, luscious locks, or a feminine curves. It’s important to be grateful for the positive things about ourselves, and to acknowledge the ways in which we are blessed.
Here at the Style Coaching Institute® we like to say that we focus on blessings, not blemishes!
One of the quick and easy questions to ask yourself today is simply: “What are three things that you love most about the way you look?“ - If you’re having trouble answering this, then why not ask a friend to answer for you. It’s enlightening to see yourself through another’s eyes.
The Style Coaching™ philosophy truly believes that each and every one of us is beautiful, but never in exactly the same way. We need to celebrate our unique features, and a Style Coach™ is trained to dress every person in a way that enhances their figure and allows their 'style personality’ to shine. Looking great is always about working in harmony with your body shape, not against it.
Becoming a Style Coach™ is similar to becoming a personal stylist or training in image consultancy, because you learn styling skills that enable you to balance a client’s proportions, cleverly camouflage body challenges, and enhance a client’s favourite features. However, when you become a Style Coach™, you’re also trained to recognise the importance of positive body-image, self-acceptance, and learning to love yourself.
The truth is that everyone has positive attributes to their body shape; we just need to shift the focus so that these attributes can be more easily recognised and appreciated. To truly experience the wonderful benefits of Style Coaching™, clients are encouraged to understand, get to know and accept their body shape.
If you’re inspired to help people to look good in the mirror then a career in personal styling or image consultancy might be perfect for you! But, if you’re interested in learning how to take 'looking good’ to whole new level through helping people to feel beautiful on the inside too, then becoming a Style Coach™ is the career you’ve been waiting for. Your Style Coaching™ career is about so much more than personal styling, it’s about spreading self-esteem and positive body-image. When you begin your Style Coaching™ business, you can look forward to a career that is rewarding, fulfilling and which makes a positive difference in the world.
