What Does a Personal Stylist Do?

What Does a Personal Stylist Do?

First impressions last forever and the thing we often first notice is appearance. If you’ve got a natural flair for style and want to help others look their best, maybe a career as a personal stylist is right for you.  

What Is a Personal Stylist? 
A personal stylist is someone who helps others look and feel their best. They have a natural talent for fashion, spotting trends and putting together outfits. Their expertise is not limited to just clothing, though. Personal stylists also review hair and makeup choices to ensure their client not only is fashionably coordinated, but that their own personality shines through their style choices. Typically working one-on-one with a client, a personal stylist will advise what colors and styles work best based on individual body types, ages, professions, and budgets.  

How Do I Become a Personal Stylist? 
If you want to put your hobby and talent to use as a career, an education is one of the best places to get started. NYIAD’s accredited personal stylist course is completely online and self-paced, providing an affordable and convenient option to boost your resume credentials. In the first two units, you’ll learn basics like vocabulary, color theory, fabrics, and tailoring in addition to fashion history. You’ll then move onto units covering fashion in art and Hollywood, fashion capitals, how to dress varying body types and ages, accessorizing, and cosmetics. Your courses will culminate with lessons in industry career paths and starting your own business.  

Throughout your studies, you’ll submit projects for evaluation while receiving mentorship from established industry professionals.
