With more choice than ever before many people don’t know where to start buying clothes and accessories. Mistakes are expensive; that’s why more people are using the services of a personal shopper or image consultant.

So what’s the difference between these two job roles?

Very little really. A personal shopper and an image consultant both need the same fundamental skills and knowledge but they are applied a little differently. This actually has more to do with how you work rather than what you do. For example…

A personal shopper is more likely to be employed by a department store or fashion boutique; many now hire a personal shopper to give extra value to their customers. There are many personal shopper job opportunities and you can make a good income.

An Image consultant does the same thing but tends to work freelance; providing image consultant services directly to clients. This would allow you to work your own hours, be your own boss and determine your own salary. A good Image Consultant helps their clients choose the clothes, accessories and hair and make-up styles that suit them best. This is the main difference between these roles. An image consultant will also offer personal shopper services to clients and this can be a regular source of income as fashion seasons change and your clients want to stay on trend.

In short, whether you decide to work as a Personal Shopper or Image Consultant this course will show you how to help each client to develop their own unique style so they look and feel AMAZING. A new career in this industry could be life-changing for you and your clients.
