Can you give examples of people/corporations that have used an Image Consultant and improved their work environment/revenues?2017-03-13T12:48:29-07:00

Yes. Both business and the private sector have employed my services. I have been hired by Corporate Executives and Professionals throughout Windsor for image counseling. Business owners have requested my services to heighten staff image, and create a look that is right for them. Key Administration Officers have sought direction to know their level of dress. Both high profile and business executives have hired me to enhance their image when engaging in public speaking.

Wedding parties are seeking advice on gown selection, proper colours for dress and makeup. And, of course many private citizens make use of my expertise.

As far as revenues, that would be confidential information with the business owner. I know that private individuals have received promotions in their jobs since seeking an image update

How common is using an Image Consultant?2017-03-13T12:48:29-07:00

It is a growing industry. Customers are realizing the initial cost pays for itself in wise choices that are beneficial to both their profession and lifestyle. My services as an Image Consultant have included image workshops for business owners to enhance staff development, private individuals, wedding parties, photographers and women’s organizations to name a few.

What is the cost issue/involvement to overhauling your image and maintaining it?2017-03-13T12:48:29-07:00

Why is an Image Consultant important? What can an Image Consultant do? We provide analysis, recommendations and program implementation for development in topics such as appearance, etiquette, voice coaching, wardrobe and personal shopping to name a few! At Beautiful You Image Consulting our expertise is in appearance and etiquette. At the initial consultation a “Needs Analysis” is established and then an appropriate course of action is recommended.
The cost of overhauling one’s image may start at around $100. This fee includes a 2 hour session on colour analysis. Knowing one’s best colours is the necessary foundation to enhance appearance and to come alive.
To pinpoint an exact price is difficult as it varies from client to client. Each client must gauge their needs according to their lifestyle.

Some clients may only need education and guidance on how to incorporate a few key pieces for their makeover. Others may want a Personal Shopper and that fee would also include the cost of their wardrobe. Recently graduated professionals entering into their field have been sent by their companies to fine tune areas when they begin their career (such as I was on entering my profession).

Consultation does not end with colour analysis. A personality profile is created for each client enlightening the individual to one’s true identity: such as a classic, dramatic or natural. This also gives the consultant the parameters within which to work. These parameters protect the client from becoming frustrated and falling back into old patterns. The knowledge of knowing one’s personality profile brings an awareness of who they are and what they can become resulting in a complete turnaround.
Body shape is the third component in image management which defines the importance of proper fit. And lastly, the final step is wardrobe planning. Now things start to click, and shopping and dressing become fun. Once a wardrobe audit is done a wardrobe plan is put into place eliminating poor choices or overspending.

Maintaining your image is easy once your Image has been defined. It is important to keep your look current especially with eye glasses and hairstyles. Understanding trends and fads and how they relate to your lifestyle and wardrobe plan make it easier in choosing items. Depending on your profession certain percentages are suggested on what to spend per year on clothing.

Why is what you wear and how you act so important in today’s corporate world?2017-03-13T12:48:30-07:00

Today’s corporate world is global, competitive, educated, sophisticated, cosmopolitan and FAST! Since clothing and grooming define 90% of one’s visual communication both etiquette and appearance deliver a message whether one likes it or not. Polish includes overcoming a weak handshake and awkward introductions, and knowing appropriate body language that results in a poised and confident manner. Details count. Example: Are your clothes wrinkled or ill fitting? Why endure a bad fit? Your first impression lacks impact. When it fits – the first impression expresses confidence, care, and pride in oneself. For women just know that the more skin she shows the less power she has. ….alot went hidden.

Skeptical? One client of mine noticed men began opening doors for her and allowing her to go ahead of them. Another colleague was upgraded to first class on a transatlantic flight. When he wondered why he was chosen, he noticed he was the only one dressed well in the waiting room. He fit the image of how the airline envisioned a first class passenger for their company.

How can a professional image affect job prospects and career advancement?2017-03-13T12:48:30-07:00

Business attire has become increasingly important for careers as every employee represents the Front Line for his/her organization. The pendulum swung too far to casual, now proper dress for business has made a comeback. Guidelines were vague in how to define “Casual, Casual Friday or Business Casual.”

Today, dress is broken down into different levels for one’s profession and lifestyle, each requiring its own look. The new levels of dress are defined as: Corporate, business, business casual/professional, smart casual, casual and leisure. Knowing the proper look and dressing appropriately for one’s career not only builds credibility but raises the quality of service expected by the employee and the organization. A uniform or dress code builds teamwork and morale, allowing the employee to feel confident and respected by their clientele.

The phrase “I am a walking business card,” inspired me as an Image Consultant to the importance of proper dress to make every item at every level count. In business if casual is called for always choose smart casual. It is better to be slightly overdressed than underdressed. Leisure never belongs in the workplace unless of course one’s profession is sports related. It has been proven that when a person is dressed smartly, he or she will be more productive.
