Frequently asked questions

What is an Image Consultant?


An image consultant is a professional visual style editor who works with male and female clients to transform their personal style image, their visual brand image and their comportment. Image Consultants are skilled makeover technicians and help transform the visual look and personal confidence of their clientele using the tools of fashion, makeup, hairstyling, etiquette, non-verbal communication, personal styling and color analysis. Consultants are trained to provide services that enhance the appearance, behavior and communication abilities of their clients.




Do I need training to become an Image Consultant?


Most certified consultants would say "yes" because they have been on both sides of the skill set, without training and then with training, and can say that once certified, their business and personal skills became professional and their business could grow. Here are the top reasons for training:

  1. Establishes you as a professional consultant.
  2. Distinguishes you in the image field.
  3. Adds credibility to your bio (CV).
  4. Moves you out of the amateur ranks and clients will note this.
  5. Grows your confidence as you will have the skills and knowledge necessary to be a successful image consultant dispensing professional advice.
