Personal Stylist/ Image Consultant Training
WHY is style both Art & Science?
We all have to wear clothes. There is an Art to putting items on your body that create visual harmony. The "art" of the style personality, how this impacts every choice you make about clothing,
The "Science" is the deeper understanding of our measurements and how these define our our shape. Size becomes irrelevant once you are aware of your personal scale and your proportions. The Science is the visual sleight of hand!

I want to thank you for a great kick start to my new career in image consulting. Module one of “Style is Both Art & Science” was a wonderful way to learn the fundamentals of this profession. Learning how to help clients determine their style personality, and learning how to properly measure for shape and proportion was great. The small class size and setting was perfect for hands-on demonstrations of how to conduct a style consultation. Being able to practice on each other was key to boosting my confidence. I can’t wait for the next session! Peggy Roder 2019/20
Module two was so much fun! Getting the opportunity to not only learn on paper how to conduct a closet consultation, but to actually be a part of conducting two of them was a great experience. I loved learning about putting together clusters and capsules. It’s a great tool to have so clients can get the most bang for their buck. Thanks for another great class! Peggy Roder 2019/20
I recently took two of Joanne’s CEU’d modules: Style is Both Art & Science and Closet Adventures, both modules have been an eye opener. Joanne, makes sure that you have access to every bit of information possible and stretches you with lots of practice so that you can experience how the tools work. My understanding of this industry is so much deeper.The gained knowledge and Joanne’s encouragement have helped me to become more confident in this profession and to start consulting with more self-confidence.
Joanne, thank you for the breadth of information you provided. I truly LOVED every minute! One can see it's your passion and that you love what you do. You go above and beyond what is expected!

Once again module three was a great combination of classroom and real-world teaching! Learning about what all goes into a shopping consultation from prep to follow-up was very helpful. The best part of course, was going out to the stores and doing it ourselves. I’m ready to get out there and use my new-found skills! Peggy Roder 2019/20
The Shopping Module offered by The Style Educator is an absolute must for both new and experienced Image Consultants. Joanne taught us how to pre-prep the trip, pre-prep the store, set up the dressing room, shop, critique, and handle online shopping, coupons and returns. After over 10 years in the business, I did not think I could learn any more, but I did. The retail world has changed so much in the last decade; if you haven’t been brought up to speed, you owe it to your clients and to yourself to take Joanne’s course. Highly recommended.

Joanne’s experience as an AICI Certified Image Professional, is the absolute perfect combination of book smarts and real world experience. I took her three CEU’d modules: Style is Both Art & Science, Closet Adventures and The Art of Personal Shopping. I HIGHLY recommend these courses with Joanne to anyone who is interested in learning both the theory/facts within each subject as well as practical, hands on, take home materials that allow you to apply it to your business immediately.
Joanne has a true gift for teaching. With passion and clarity, she connects the science to the less understood art of image consulting in a way that is easy to digest and instills confidence. You leave with tools you can use immediately, including forms, templates and a huge vat of resources. It’s a rare combination to find an instructor with such passion, hands on experience and ability to help you plan actionable steps to moving forward with your business. Joanne is a visionary within the industry. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to grow with her as my teacher and mentor. Kristin Shoop 2019/20
