  • 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.

    "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".
