Who is the course designed for?

This course is for those of you who are unable to attend face to face training and would like to become a personal stylist or personal shopper.  It is also ideal for individuals who wish to learn more about themselves and discover their own colours and the styles that work for them – even advise their friends!  Many of our online delegates go onto developing a career and then decide to take the plunge and train as fully qualified Colour Me Beautiful Image Consultant.

The course is designed for trainees worldwide and should take about 35 hours of concentrated study.  Although the course is in English, it is also designed for candidates whose first language may not be English. 

You have eight months to complete the course and you can go through it as many times as you like during that period.

There are no pre-requisites for signing up for this course, we will take you through all the theory and practical sessions building your knowledge and confidence in the subjects.

So, whether you are looking for a career change or adding these services to an existing business, it could certainly work for you.

Throughout this Personal Stylist online course, we will give you the technical knowledge you need to become a personal stylist as well as encourage you to develop your practical styling talents on future clients.  We believe this is truly the only way to learn and develop your skills.

The course is available to you and must be completed within an eight-month period.  After going through the course once, you can revisit as many times as you wish during the eight months.

Course content and approach

This course covers an abridged version as our face-to-face Personal Stylist training courses that take place in London and Manchester. You can now 'pay as you train' and register for one module at a time or invest in the whole course.

We highly recommend you sign up for each module in the order below:

Module 1 – The style and image module - which covers all aspect of how to give your future clients advice on how to dress for their personality, lifestyle, body shape, height, scale and proportions.

Module 2 – The colour analysis* module - introduces you to assessing your client’s dominant colouring type and the colours she can wear to make her look and feel fabulous.

Module 3 – The Stylist tools module - brings the whole thing together, so you can apply the learning from the previous modules to running style consultations, personal shopping experiences and wardrobe audits/capsule wardrobes for your clients.

* To fully qualify with colour me beautiful in colour analysis and a fully certified Colour Me Beautiful Image Consultant you need to attend our 5-day face to face training in London or Manchester

The course uses visual and audio learning techniques and combines teaching with continuous interactive tests, self-assessments, tasks and case studies. It is an easy learning format broken down into seventeen modules for confident understanding.

What our newly trained Personal Stylists say

"Yesterday, I made my final assignment for the Stylist course. I had so much fun with my client volunteer. I was impressed that I was able to put in practise what I learned, and to realize that all tips really work. I’m happy to tell you that my friend is considering buying all of the three options I found for her. So, thank you very much I’m more than happy and excited to become a fully qualified Colour me Beautiful consultant."

"I have followed the Colour and Make-up course in London, and I have followed the Personal Stylist e-course and I did not regret one minute...

My opinion: value for money!

I have a boutique in Belgium and after following the course, I have started immediately with my Colour Studio, a combination of selling clothes and giving colour consultations. You have to build up your customer base and it will take a little time, but when people trust you and believe you, they send other clients to you and your business will grow. CMB offers its Image Consultants lots of support. If you have any concerns, you can always contact your trainer or Head Office and they organise seminars to keep you up to date. I have been to one last week and I felt like I was family. In all honesty, CMB is without doubt a leading company, particularly when I compare it to other similar companies in my country and abroad. If you want to follow the course, don't hesitate! The course is a high standard, the support is quality and the rest you have to do yourself. They give you the self-confidence on the course and you have to pass on this confidence to your clients; it will work."
