Hiring a Personal Stylist: What It’s Really Like

by Apr 28, 2022personal stylist0 comments

Hiring a personal stylist may seem like a luxury that only celebrities can afford, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are a lot of myths that may be holding you back from hiring a personal stylist, so I wanted to share some of the reasons that my clients have hired me, and what has prevented them from hiring a personal stylist before.

What is a personal stylist?

A personal stylist is someone who helps others achieve their desired image. A personal stylist’s goal is to make their clients look and feel their best everyday. They have a natural talent for fashion, they keep up with trends, and they’re masters at styling a person from head to toe.

What does a personal stylist do?

Typically working one-on-one with a client, a personal stylist will advise what colors and clothing work best based on an individual’s body type, age, profession, budgets, and lifestyle. Most importantly, a great stylist will listen and truly get to know you and what your goals are in order to make you feel your most confident self. A personal stylist’s job is not limited to putting together outfits as many personal stylists also offer services such as closet cleanses, wardrobe edits, seasonal transformations, event styling, shopping assistance, and more.

A personal stylist can help you update your wardrobe by finding new items that work well with the pieces you already have. They’ll also be able to get rid of outdated or unflattering pieces so you have more space for the latest and greatest clothes. And a great personal stylist will offer tips and tricks for styling outfits as well as knowing the best places to shop for new things! 

Why you could benefit from hiring a personal stylist

You don’t have to be attending red carpet events to benefit from a personal stylist. In fact, personal stylists are more beneficial for your day-to-day life! Imagine waking up and being able to choose from dozens of outfits that directly reflect your ideal style. Imagine not having to worry about keeping up with the latest trends! Imagine having someone who knows your desired image and your body shape do all of your shopping for you.

Getting dressed is something that we all do every single day, why not make it easier? My clients are not walking down a runway, they are real people like you and me! Here are some of the reasons why my clients have hired me to be their personal stylist, and the reasons that held them back from hiring a stylist earlier!

Reasons To Hire a Personal Stylist

Reasons why women have hired me:

  • They were in a style rut and no longer knew what to wear
  • They have a closet full of clothes, but no idea how to put outfits together
  • They love shopping, but still don’t have a wardrobe that works
  • They have gained weight and don’t know how to dress for their body shape
  • They are starting to date again and forgot how to dress up
  • They are changing careers
  • They’re moving and don’t know how to dress for their new climate
Reasons To Hire a Personal Stylist
What has held them back from hiring a personal stylist before:

  • They feel embarrassed and ashamed that they can’t put outfits together
  • They assume it’s too much of a luxury to hire a stylist
  • They feel as though they should be able to figure it out on their own
  • They don’t really care about fashion, but want to look nice
  • They are worried that a stylist will make them feel worse about themselves
  • They don’t want or need to spend a lot of money on clothes
  • They are worried that their husband/friends won’t understand

Do you resonate with any of these feelings? They’re not uncommon, especially among women. There should be nothing holding you back if you are truly ready to make a change and invest in yourself. Making the call is the hardest part, but your personal style journey will change your life if you let it:)
