Caroline Nolan, Herbalist

Caroline Nolan came for a Style Consultation before revamping her website. Style for Women in Business helps you attract the right clients by ensuring your image represents the values and selling points of your business.

Aideen: I’m here with Caroline Nolan who is a herbalist. We worked together lately to spruce up Caroline’s image and to help her with her direction with her brand for her business. What you wear can have a big impact on how you are perceived by your clients and things like that. So, Caroline understood that. One thing I want to ask you is why did you want to come and see me now, what was the difference, what was the problem?

Caroline: I’m just getting back working after having three kids. When it came to what do I wear, what do I even like anymore I just had no idea what suits me, my body shape has changed, I don’t even know what colors or what fabrics or anything. It’s like I just needed a kick-start. That’s why I came to you Aideen. And what a fantastic job you’ve done.

Aideen: What was the main thing that clicked into place for you after meeting for your consultation at home?

Caroline: The main thing was, the colours that came up in our consultation were colours that I know that suit me. It just got me when I have been looking and shopping since, it really helped me trust my instinct and what I already knew came back to me. I was reminded really well. It gave me just a bit more confidence really in going and to get in the clothes that we discussed, the kind of clothes, the kind of shapes. Yeah, it’s like I’m a new woman.

Aideen: Fantastic. We’ve just met up there because we’ve been at your photo shoot for your website. How did that go for you?

Caroline: It was much less scary than I thought it would be. I was very glad to have went with your guidance really. I picked the colours and the fabrics that reflected what I want to communicate now. I’ll have all that done before going for that photo shoot.

Aideen: Fantastic.

Caroline: It was really good timing.

Aideen: What’s next for you Caroline?

Caroline: What’s next for me is, well you can follow me at www.herbsandhealing.ie to see what’s next Aideen.

Aideen: Wow, fantastic. Thanks Caroline

Caroline: Thank you very much.

Smirk Blue Dress Aideen

Each person’s self-expression is completely unique and special – mine includes singing jazz music and chanting as I meditate… that’s just me! 🙂

Confident Self-Expression

When I was about 12 years old I came across my mothers Colour Me Beautiful book and from then on I hoped to become an image consultant and help people find the colours that suited them. I already had an eye for colour and I knew that my school uniform, with it’s royal blue sweater, looked quite good on me. I even wore it during my summer holidays sometimes! Weird, I know! The only fashion influences on me during my childhood were from the TV and I was fascinated by films like Flashdance, Dirty Dancing and Pretty in Pink. You can see how those movies influenced some of my favourite looks from way back then by clicking here.

So, many years later I got my chance to train with a wonderful Image Consultant, Joan Cashman, who is an award winning stylist based in Cork. Then, I was lucky enough to work in the Colour Me Beautiful head office in Dublin with Melanie Power for four years doing Colour, Style and Personal Shopping. I loved my time working as a Colour Me Beautiful Consultant, I feel blessed to have worked with the best in the business for many years and really appreciated all their guidance and support and I take all that experience with me into my own image consulting.

Mind you for me it’s not about creating an image – it’s about boosting your confidence and expressing the real you through style! If that’s something you would like then get in touch with me 🙂

Stylist or Image Consultant?

July 8, 2015

Which is better?

If you are doing a photo shoot then a stylist may be the best person to have on board. A stylist is an artist, someone who is looking at the overall picture to co-ordinate the clothes and accessories and will create a unique “look” for a photo, a particular event or for a TV appearance.

Stylist – a person whose job is to arrange and coordinate food, clothes, etc. in a stylish and attractive way in photographs or films. (Google definition)

However, if an image consultant has a more personal approach and the goal is not to merely create one look but instead to bring out the best overall look for an individual. So, an image consultant will first do a consultation with you to find out about you – your personality, your lifestyle, your colouring and body shape. Then, based on that, your image consultant will teach you the principles of good style in relation to just you. This allows you to make better choices when shopping and creating your own look in the future.

Image Consultant – a person or company hired to advise on improved public presentation or impression, esp. in media and public relations; also, such a person or company hired to assist someone in personal appearance or style. (Dictionary.reference.com)

Both a Stylist and an Image Consultant take their clients personal shopping however an image consultant would be likely to do a Style & Presentation Consultation with you first to teach you what colours, styles, fabrics and accessories you should look for.

If you’re interested expressing the authentic you though your own unique personal style then image consulting is perfect for you. My goal is to help you to reveal the REAL you so that you express your authentic self in the way you present yourself in the world through a holistic, intuitive approach.
