Styling is one of the few professions that does not discriminate in any way. You can be of any age, sex, race or religion and become a successful stylist. In fact, often these individual traits can be of real benefit. For example, a younger stylist will often be more familiar with teen trends where the older stylist may feel more equipped to assist more mature clients. As a professional stylist, you can also work from home and to a large degree you can choose your own clients and the nature of the work you accept.
This craft does not demand a university degree or other academic qualifications. Once you know what the industry requires, you have a highly marketable skill.
At the end of this course, you will have the necessary training and skills to successfully handle virtually any assignment. You will have an insider’s knowledge of what the market requires and how to go about providing it.
