Our Members Community

Join a thriving community

As a growing business we adopt the mindset of helping others be the best they can be, this includes individuals in the styling industry whether they have trained with us or elsewhere. Our business is all-inclusive and we have a wealth of individuals who take pride in being part of our team. We welcome any professional in the personal styling and related industries to join our thriving community for many opportunities. 

A brief history

When founder of The image Consulting Company Emmeline started this business in 2006 she found a lack of support in the industry for the modern day stylist with few other stylists who would welcome a connection or collaborate. This gave Emmeline the idea to ensure no other fellow stylist would feel excluded, intimidated or in competition specifically at crucial times of their business.

The growth of our team had a relatively holistic start with connections made through existing stylists working together to give team spirit to opportunities of collaboration. But after the birth of our training courses, it became apparent that stylists who had recently come in to the industry needed help to grow and so it was important to ensure we offered a platform of support to new and existing stylists.

How do we support our members? 

To help our members grow their business, incentivise and feel part of a team, we give our members access to;

  • Business mentoring
  • Online tutorials
  • Confidential community
  • Event opportunities
  • Styling projects
  • Workshops
  • Regular meet-ups
  • Client referrals
  • Business professionals

I used to think a lot of other stylists were intimidating but this has to be the best thing I've done for my business and self confidence, the team are so friendly and I've learnt a lot, I feel supported and can get answers when I need them. Thank you!

How does it work? 

We welcome new and existing stylists to join our team, naturally we want to ensure you share our values and so will organise to have a chat and discover how we can support you and your business. Once approved, we will welcome you to a private facebook group and ask a few questions to feature you on our website. The benefits and opportunities within the group will then be at your fingertips. We have two different member types to choose from depending on the level of support you need, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience within our team so you can start learning and growing your business instantly.
