OVER THE YEARS, FASHION, OR WARDROBE STYLING HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT OUT OCCUPATIONS IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY INTERNATIONALLY. SINCE 2013, THE AMOUNT OF HIRED FASHION STYLISTS HAS MORE THAN QUADRUPLED IN SIZE.


HERE’S WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW BEFORE BECOMING A FASHION STYLIST;


FASHION STYLING IS NOT A HOBBY, IT IS A CAREER CHOICE.


PROFESSIONAL FASHION STYLING IS FAR TOO COMPLEXED TO BE CONSIDERED AN AVOCATION. ALTHOUGH, IT CAN BE SOMETHING FUN TO DO, ONCE YOU ARE RECEIVING REVENUE, AND UTILIZING FASHION STYLING RESOURCES, “HOBBY” IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT.


PROFESSIONALISM IS KEY


GRANTED, THE WORLD IS A HUGE PLACE... BUT THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS A VERY SMALL WORLD. WHATEVER ENERGY YOU PUT OUT, WILL BE RETURNED IN THE FORMS OF UNPROFESSIONAL CLIENTELE, AND AN ALMOST UNREPAIRABLE REPUTATION.


THERE WILL BE TONS OF PAPERWORK


ONE OF THE VERY FIRST MISTAKES BEGINNER STYLISTS MAKE IS ASSUMING IT’S 100% “JUST STYLING”. WHILE STYLING YOUR CLIENT, OR TALENT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TASKS, IT ISN’T THE FIRST OR LAST THING ON A PROFESSIONAL STYLISTS TO-DO LIST.


IT CAN BECOME QUITE OVERWHELMING


DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS OCCUPATIONAL CHOICE. AS STYLISTS, WE MAKE IT LOOK EASY BUT IT WILL BE STRESSFUL. ANTICIPATE LONG DAYS, AND EVEN LONGER NIGHTS.


EVERY STYLIST HAS HIS/HER VERY OWN TIMELINE


THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU’LL RUN ACROSS STYLISTS THAT YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF TO BE “BETTER THAN”, THAT ARE SEEMINGLY DOING BETTER THAN YOU ON SOCIAL MEDIA. DO NOT GIVE UP, YOU ARE EXACTLY WHERE YOU SHOULD BE AND YOUR TIME WILL COME WHEN YOU ARE READY AND PREPARED. IN THE MEANTIME, YOU HAVE ALL OF THE RESOURCES ON WWW.DEARSTYLISTS.COM THAT WILL ASSIST YOU IN BECOMING THE BEST STYLIST YOU CAN BE.
