CORPORATE IMAGE ANALYST AND STYLIST CERTIFICATION COURSE

 

This qualification has been developed for persons aspiring to become a Corporate Image Consultant.

"Image" is the way other people see us. It influences whether people will agree to our requests, hire us, and pay us the salary we want. Image consulting is a booming industry thanks in part to the popularity of television shows such as What Not to Wear, Extreme Makeover, and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

As an image consultant, you can give people advice that will help them achieve what they want – whether it is to get a new job, to make a good impression, or simply to feel good about themselves. To help people look better, you might choose to offer services such as:

  • Image Analysis or Makeover Consulting (giving someone feedback on the overall image they are projecting and helping them develop a new image)
  • Fashion Styling or Wardrobe Consulting (reviewing someone's current wardrobe to determine what should be discarded or purchased, coordinating outfits, and closet organizing)
  • Makeup Analysis (you can also consult on other specific aspects of physical appearance such as: Colors, Skin Care, Hairstyle, etc.)

However, image is more than physical appearance. In addition to how someone looks, people also form impressions based on how that person talks and behaves. Therefore, as an image consultant, you might also consult with clients about:

  • Vocal Communications (such as voice, grammar, and vocabulary)
  • Non-verbal communications (such as handshakes, posture, and eye contact)
  • Etiquette (business etiquette, social graces, dining)

In addition to consulting with clients yourself, you can develop a network of strategic partners to refer clients to, such as hair stylists, makeup artists, dieticians, dentists, personal trainers, plastic surgeons, and voice coaches.

A variety of different terms are used to describe image, image consultants, or image consulting. For example, you may hear image referred to as perception or appearance management, personal branding, or personal presentation. Or you may hear image consulting activities referred to as fashion consulting, image management, visual branding. Instead of calling yourself an image consultant, you could call yourself a fashion stylist, makeover consultant, wardrobe consultant, etc.

As an image consultant you may decide to assist anyone who wants image consulting services, or choose to specialize in working with particular types of clients, such as:

  • Women who want a new look
  • Job-seekers
  • Corporate executives
  • Beauty pageant contestants
  • Lawyers and their clients
  • Cancer survivors
  • Television personalities
  • Spouses of recently promoted executives
  • Transgender individuals
  • Politicians
  • Singles seeking a partner

While many individuals hire image consultants, you may also be hired by corporate clients. For example, a company might hire you to help a new supervisor communicate effectively with employees, or to coach a senior executive to make a good impression during television interviews.
