Become a certified professional stylist with our complete DVD home study course
Learn how to successfully run your own personal styling business from fashion stylist veteran Cindy Newstead
Dear fashion enthusiast,
Imagine you are shopping for clothes. While browsing in your favourite store, you see two people come in: first, a well-dressed woman in her forties. Her stride is confident, her posture professional.
In tow, another woman: about the same age, but not even close to emitting the same kind of confidence. She looks like she’s just thrown on some clothes she had lying around this morning. In contrast to her proud companion, this woman seems downcast and insecure.
The confident woman takes the insecure woman around the shop and picks out some clothes. You notice she’s careful in what she picks out in terms of shapes, colors and fabrics. She sends the insecure woman into a fitting stall, who emerges minutes later in a completely new outfit.
The insecure woman, whom you are by now sure of is the confident woman’s client, gets to try on a few more outfits. By the time the pair leaves the shop again, both women are beaming enthusiasm and confidence!
Do you recognize this? Then you’ll have considered how great it could be to work as a personal stylist! You get to completely overhaul peoples’ wardrobes – and with that, their confidence in themselves and their outlook on life.
If it’s your dream to work as a personal stylist and do all that we’ve just described, then read on!
How do you become a personal stylist?
Well, you could just whip up a website, print some business cards and have a go at it. That’s what a lot of women are doing right now. Personal styling is hot and they don’t want to miss out on the craze. You can even start up a business without having to quit your daytime job: you work when you want to.
The problem with this approach is that there is far more to personal styling than just picking out some clothes. Clients come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes. You’ve got to take into account ages, personalities, tastes, lifestyles, budgets… and there’s body image issues and self confidence issues not everyone is cut out how to deal with.
We regularly get self-made personal stylists that are stuck asking for advice. Not to mention we get clients complaining about bad experiences they’ve had with unprofessional stylists. All of that finds its root in the casual way in which people declare themselves personal stylists.
If you want to be successful as a personal stylist, you should learn from the best
Being a personal stylist is a calling. Which is why we want to help people like you, who feel that they have this calling, to become personal stylist. That’s why we started the Professional Styling Academy. We teach women, who are passionate about fashion, how to successfully run a personal styling business.
However, you might not be in a position to attend one of our training sessions. The reason for that is most likely that we’re in Australia! Not to mention that there’s not a lot of professional styling training sessions given in the US, either.

But there’s more…
You won’t just learn how to be a personal stylist: you’ll get certified.
How does it work? Once you sign up for the home course, you’ll get access to the members area of this website. Once you feel you’re up to it, you can take the Personal Stylist Course test. Pass the test: voilá, you’ve earned your certification!
The test is specifically designed to make sure you’ve watched the videos and know what you’re talking about. So yes, you’ll have to study for it. Don’t worry, though, as you’re not alone!
We’ll actively help you reach that certification: forum and live webinars
We could just send you the DVDs and let you figure it out on your own. But we won’t! Once you sign up with us, we’ll make sure you get the support you need to grasp everything there is about being a personal stylist.
First off, you’ll get exclusive access to the members forum. On this forum you’ll get to meet and discuss with fellow students ánd instructors. You can ask your questions and have them answered by the professionals, themselves.
Whenever you’re stuck with the course or have more questions, the forum is there for you.
Secondly, we’ll host regular MEMBERS ONLY webinars. During these live webinars, we’ll go deeper into specialist topics. There will also be room for live Q&A. And don’t worry about the difference in time: we’ll host the webinar at times convenient for US students!
WOW! ‘The words ‘Thank you’ just do not cut it. The three days spend with you both, were hands down the most beneficial thing I have done for my career so far… The knowledge, wisdom and advice from you both was so inspiring and it was exactly what I needed to reassure myself that I am heading in the right direction.
Over the three day I really proved to myself that I have a love affair with fashion and making others feel good about themselves.
Cindy you were so genuine and honest, and I was blown away by your sincerity in the hope that each and every one of us in the course succeeds and takes a leap of faith to do so.
This course went above and beyond my expectations and its a real credit to you both, because as you both know my standards are set rather high in the sky… So, from the bottom of my heart I thank you both for creating such an incredible 3 day personal styling course.
