Join Our Personal Stylist Community


Being a self-employed personal stylist doesn’t mean you need to do it alone.⁠
⁠You were never meant to do it alone – the secret to success is having the right team around you and the right information to grow your business.

⁠⁠That’s why we created our Personal Stylist Community, and it’s filled with support that’s tailored to personal stylists, meaning that you don’t have to work out how what you’re seeing might apply to what you do. You just need to make it yours.

Who are we?

Something quite unique. We are a fun, friendly team of style professionals who have recognised the power of working together to support, inspire, encourage and empower each other and our clients; celebrating each other’s successes along the way and helping each other grow. 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, and if you join at the same time as training with us, you’ll receive a discount on your course.

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 three different member types to choose from depending on the level of support you need, and we have a wealth of knowledge and experience within our team so you can start learning and growing your business instantly. Book a call with us below to chat through your queries, or download our Member’s Community PDF here for more information.

I've just done the tonal colour masterclass with Emmeline online. The style of learning is so intuitive and confidence building. I've also done some coaching with her and thoroughly recommend them if you are just starting out.

I am a style coach and this morning, I participated in a talk with Emmeline and the subject was ‘how to build your brand successfully’ . I have spoken with Emmeline before and I have nothing but high praise for her professional, warm and engaging manner. She shares golden nuggets of information that I believe few people seldom share and she is so generous with her knowledge that I almost felt like I was talking with an old friend. Her advice is invaluable and she genuinely cares about others succeeding, in fact she is passionate about it, so much so that the talk was supposed to be 90 minutes long but instead went on for 3 hours. Emmeline you are a credit to your profession and all the hard work you have put into your business shines through. I really look forward to meeting you face to face at your next networking event and hope that one day we can work together in the future xxx

I’ve done their Style Personality course and I can highly recommend. As someone who hadn’t covered this in my original style training, it was really clear and comprehensive. It’s allowed me to feel really confident in helping clients find their style personality & given me the tools to find it too! Highly recommended course ❤️

I trained with the Image Consulting Co. in March 2022. I have nothing but praise for Emmeline and the course. There was so much content and material covered. Every question was answered so thoroughly and I definitely felt armed to go out and set up as a personal stylist. There’s also great support offered after the course which is very reassuring. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.

Emmeline and her team have created the most wonderful community of stylists, staying true to their values of working collaboratively rather than competitively. A rare thing to find. I chose to train with The Image Consulting Company and have since joined the community of stylists. I've found it to be a very warm and welcoming network, allowing me to tap into the varied and wide knowledge of the group for support and information - with regular training and opportunities to expand my skills. Most importantly for me, I now feel like I'm part of a team and that I have somewhere to go to collaborate, find answers and share experiences. Emmeline's knowledge of the industry is second to none and she is a wonderful mentor to boot. I really couldn't' recommend it any more highly.

I joined the Image Consulting Company just a few weeks ago and have loved being part of a community of supportive stylists! I joined because I wanted to develop my skills and find the confidence to grow my business. Emmeline has been nothing but supportive from day one. She has answered all my questions and given me tonnes of great business advice. I undertook the online colour analysis training with her which was fantastic and has given me more confidence in this area. I couldn't recommend the Image Consulting Company highly enough :)

I joined the Image Consulting Company community 18 months ago having spoken to the founder Emmeline, who is a highly experienced and creative personal stylist - also super friendly and encouraging too. As a stylist who works independently it’s so lovely to meet and be involved with a like minded group of stylists who all support each other - it feels like a team. I have received great business and styling mentorship myself and am now a mentor in the team too. I enjoy the online meet ups as well as the advanced training available within the community too.

The image consulting company is an amazing place to train with if you are wanting to pursue a career as a personal stylist. The co founder of this company Emmeline Stevens is a great business mentor, also manages and supports all personal stylists to achieve the best in their businesses and they offer a range of styling services. I highly recommend this company for all they offer and do.

I trained one to one with Emmeline in November 2019 and it was the best decision I made to bring my Styling Business to life! She is an incredible mentor and teacher and has been an ongoing inspiration for me. I am also a part of the brilliant Stylist community which I have found to be an invaluable support to me whilst growing my business. It's full of inspirational and supportive women, spurring each other on!

Can not recommend this company enough! I completed my personal training with Emmeline last October you will learn all you need to know to become a personal stylist but above and beyond this the support you get after is second to none! I belong to the members community, this has been an absolute godsend this year, offering constant learning and support and meeting the most amazing group of ladies. If you are considering starting your journey as a personal stylist, I highly recommend having a chat with Emmeline.
