Hey there! Are you passionate about men’s personal styling and dreaming of becoming a top-notch personal stylist? We recently did a poll of LCS-trained personal stylists who are now running successful businesses and they report that 30% of the client bookings are male!
So, if you’re thinking on become a personal stylist, let us share our expert tips on how to excel as a men’s personal stylist and make your mark in the industry.
Tip 1: Know Your Client:
First things first, in men’s personal styling, getting to know your client is key! Take the time to understand their unique style, physique, lifestyle, and fashion preferences.
Ask questions, listen attentively, and build a strong client-stylist relationship based on trust and understanding. By truly understanding your client, you can create personalised and impactful styling solutions that make them look and feel their best.
You may want to be a little less heart-to-heart with some male clients, so ascertain if they want a solution-based, practical approach to the personal shopping session or more of a leisurely experience.
Tip 2: Stay Updated with Men’s Fashion Trends:
To be at the top of your game in personal styling, you need to stay in the loop with the latest men’s fashion trends. Keep your finger on the pulse by following fashion blogs, magazines, influencers, and attending fashion events or shows. However, remember to adapt trends to suit your client’s individual style and preferences.
It’s all about helping them express their unique personality through their wardrobe. Check our men’s fashion weeks, style blogs and stores and check them regularly.
Tip 3: Build a Versatile Wardrobe:
A versatile wardrobe is a secret weapon for any personal stylist. Help your clients build a wardrobe that’s flexible and functional, filled with key staple pieces and essential basics. Mix and match options that can create different looks for various occasions and seasons.
Consider your client’s physique, colour palette, and personal style to curate a wardrobe that makes them feel confident and comfortable in every outfit. Guys are loyal to key brands and often shop on repeat when they like items, so versatility and comfort might be high on the priority list.
Tip 4: Pay Attention to Details:
Details matter! Paying attention to the finer points of men’s fashion can elevate your men’s personal styling game. Ensure proper fit, tailoring, grooming, and accessories are on point.
Adjust sleeve lengths, choose the right tie knot, and coordinate accessories to create polished and well-put-together looks.
Remember, it’s the little things that make a big difference in creating a complete and impactful style statement.
Tip 5: Provide Excellent Customer Service:
Last but not least, excellent customer service is the cornerstone of a successful personal styling business. Go above and beyond to exceed your client’s expectations.
Communicate promptly, maintain professional conduct, and be willing to go the extra mile to meet their needs.
Building long-term relationships with male clients and earning a positive reputation in the industry through exceptional customer service will pave the way for your success. Can you think of menswear heritage brands, stores or services which align with this?
