What is Image Consulting?

Image consulting is a profession where consultants work with clients to improve their personal, professional and virtual image. It addresses everything from Dressing for Success through Communicating With Confidence to Proper Behaviour in-person and online, from sitting in style to standing your ground.   

In other words: As an Image Consultant, you will be able to earn a living by doing:

Style Consultations – Showing your X-shaped client that not showing off her waist is a waste of your V-shaped client to keep the patterns and colours on a low.

Colour Consultations – Recommending Yolk-Yellow instead of Mottled-Mustard

Makeup & Makeup tutorials – Doing make-up for clients or teaching them to do it themselves

Mini & Maxi Makeovers – From a subtle switch to total transformation

Masterclasses – Group sessions for teaching and enticing beauty

Etiquette and (N)etiquette – How to find your proper place in public and a viable virtual vibe

Corporate Code of Conduct and Dress Workshops – where you teach the Secretary that the Company’s Image starts with the first phone call and that spaghetti was never meant to be worn over the shoulder in the office but instead eaten with a fork and spoon in the dining room.  

Motivational Speaker – being knowledgeable on topics that so many women are eager to hear immediately puts you top of mind in the upcoming ladies’ event sphere. 

Blogger – writing on topics such as style and fashion, image and your passion…for life. 

Fashion Stylist –  Glam galore for models and more 

Magazine Shoots – Setting the stage for prolific publication pictures

TV Styling – Lights, camera, action – styling for satisfaction
