To celebrate the launch of The Image Academy in Australia, we are offering for a limited time only, our 5 day face-to-face Personal Styling course for just $850!!
This rate is only available for the month of October. Normal prices resume after October so book now!
Smitten With Style together with The Image Academy bring you an intensive training course to equip you with the skills and knowledge to become a personal stylist!

This course is suitable for those:

Individuals who are looking to start a personal styling and personal shopping business
Anyone who wants to enter the world of editorial and fashion styling and work as a magazine or TV stylist
Retail staff who wish to equip themselves with styling skills to set themselves apart from their colleagues and/or become better retail consultants / store managers
Individuals who want a fun and interesting hobby career in personal styling!
Why choose us
To become a stylist or start your own styling business can be difficult without any prior knowledge, experience or training. Our courses are tailored to give you indepth and practical information in a short time frame so you can get on your way to becoming a personal stylist as soon as possible
This is NOT a correspondence course – you will receive face-to-face training and hands-on practical experience with a MAXIMUM OF 10 students ONLY to ensure that you each receive focus and individual attention from Shirley.
The course is run by internationally reknowned UK stylist Shirley Lane from The Image Academy in a partnership with Smitten With Style – the stylists that other stylists learn from. Nothing beats experience so learn only from the very best.
The course content covers the theory that every stylist will use on a daily basis, made up of 70 different topics and answers every question you may be faced with in the real world.
Topics include getting started, colour analysis, body analysis, makeup, corporate image, working in TV and magazines to starting your own business and getting your first client.
While all participants will receive copies of the course notes to keep, we don’t believe in giving you a book with theory to teach yourself, our tutors are there to help you every step of the way and answer any questions you may have.

To book: Registrations are taken by Smitten With Style while course fee is payable direct to Image Academy via credit card. A deposit of $500 is due on registration with the balance due 7 days before course commencement.

"After completing 3 courses in London, which I feel were a total waste of time and money, I was very down about my future and what I had done as I felt the courses offered buckets of theory which were of no relevance to a modern day stylist and no practise so I had no idea where to go from there until a colleague mentioned The Image Academy.....The content covered exactly what I was looking for in assisting me to start up my own personal styling business. The days out in the shops mixed with the "start your own business section" allowed me to take the steps I required to build my business and I have never looked back. Shirley's enthusiasm for the industry mixed with her experience is invaluable to anyone starting out".

No its ok! I love questions lol! Thank you, it was all a lot of hard work which is never ending but enjoyable! Yes I designed the logo myself.
LA does have public transportation but its not as frequent depending on where you are going. but i would recommend getting a car unless you live by where you work.
Yeah im Eritrean but I was born in Khartoum, Sudan and my family and I came to LA when I was 4 months ahah
What other cities are you thinking to live?
