Your image transcends your physical appearance, accordingly a holistic approach to self improvement is first and foremost.

Improving your image can transform your life, although, few are aware that the process involves more than augmenting the physical self that you present to the world. To strengthen your image, you must hone your mannerisms, social etiquette and communication skills, as well, as your exterior aspect.

An image consultant can guide you toward improvement in many areas of your life and ideally, supports you in becoming your authentic self.

In this Blog Post we will address the field of image consulting and offer suggestions, regarding locating the fitting Image Consultant for you.

What Is An Image Consultant?

Image Consultants assess you, as a person and that can include appearance, apparel, personality, identity and beyond.

Studies find that non verbal communication is between 70% and 90% of all communication. Whether you are cognizant of that fact or not, you are communicating who you are and what you think to the world, much of the time, without speaking a word. Ultimately, your image creates a lasting impression on all of those that you encounter.

Image Consultants typically further you in discovering your personal style, as well, as your brand.  Behaviors are examined, inconsistencies are identified and your desirable state of mind versus your actual state of mind may be made conscious. Many individuals present an external self that is far different than how they feel inside. Emotional intelligence and the merging of the internal and external are crucial for authenticity.

How Do Image Consultants Differ From Personal Stylists?

Personal Stylists and Image Consultants customarily focus on the selection of clothing that pairs with your personal style, body type and lifestyle and the coordination of ensembles. As intimated above, it is wise to be aware that your manner of dress plays a critical role in expressing who you are, as a person.  

The services of an Image Consultant are usually broader and can include lifestyle coaching skills that may encompass personal branding, public speaking, social etiquette, color analysis and more.
