Learn the Science behind the Art of Personal Styling

Are you interested in becoming an image consultant or personal stylist? If you enjoy helping people look and feel great, are not colour blind, and enjoy clothes then this could be the career for you. It has great flexibility and there are many options of where you can take your skills.

The Absolute Training Institute has now joined forces with the International Style Academy to become The Academy of Professional Image and we run Training Courses in Australia and New Zealand. These courses can be done in one stretch at a time or 1 night per week over a number of months.

The training style is very experiential, practical and hands on, rather than just sitting in a classroom listening to the teacher. You will be expected to work through many exercises in a workbook, as well as practical exercises in every section of the course, from personal shopping through to draping clients for colour analysis and applying makeup.

Becoming an Image Consultant

Are you interested in helping other people learn the skills, tips and techniques to become more confident and happier with their appearance?

Image Consultants work in a variety of industries and roles. These include everything from hairdressing, to opticians, bridal, plus size, corporate workshops, etiquette specialists, fashion design, personal shoppers, wardrobe makeover artists, makeup artists and stylists. The list is endless. You may choose one stream, or a variety.

Many people become image consultants to help them improve on existing skills for their current position. Other want to be the masters of their destiny and run an image consulting business – the choice is yours.

Image consulting is about empowering people with knowledge and raising self-esteem, a recent study done at the University of Michigan proved its value in achieving this.

So what do others who have taken our training think?

I have been a passionate and enthusiastic educator for many years. In 2005 I decided that it was time for me to explore other career options. I knew it had to involve people, be flexible and align with a personal passion.

One day while walking in the bush it came to me: something to do with colour and style! I have always had a love of fashion and have played with my colours and style for years.

My mission was then to find a qualified trainer who met the following criteria:

  • An active member of the AICI professional body
  • Passionate about making a difference to the lives of their clients
  • Employed language that was supportive and empowering
  • Highly skilled, knowledgeable and committed to their personal growth as a consultant and trainer
  • Employed a colour analysis system that was easy to use and explain to clients
  • Committed to creating and producing highly professional client support materials that I could use in my business
  • Willingly provided on-going support and mentoring

I began my research via the Internet, had telephone conversations with trainers and flew to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to personally meet the training consultants. I am really happy that I chose Imogen from Absolute Image to be my trainer. She met the above criteria and was able to provide the training in a time frame that met my other work and family commitments.

It is 12months since I trained with Imogen. My business is growing steadily. Imogen has continued to provide much needed and appreciated support.

From the outset Imogen was genuine in her approach and I have no hesitation in recommending Imogen as a Image consultant trainer.
