My Philosophy:

As I am sure you are aware, there are a lot of training courses around colour, styling, and personal shopping out there. So why choose Unique Style? What sets the programmes offered through Unique Style apart from other personal stylist certification is the values and philosophy that serve as a foundation. 

  • Holistic Perspective
    Unique Style training transcends fashion and physical appearance by looking at each individual in a holistic way. As a holistic personal stylist, I analyse how colour affects my clients on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level and I create colour palettes that not only complement their looks but also express their unique personality.
  • Heart Centred Empowerment 
  • In my Unique Style consultation and training sessions, I place great emphasis on empowering my clients through positive language. I believe that everyone is perfect the way they are, therefore we will explore how to highlight client's asset areas and enhance their most-loved features, rather than talk about 'slimming down' or 'covering up' parts of them.

  • With 38 years of experience as a personal stylist and business owner, I teach froma place of embodies experience. In my training courses, I pass all of my knowledge , my learnings, and my philosophy on to you. This includes not only teachings specific to colour and styling but also everything I have learned about building and leading a successful business.    

                            

Kind words from a previous trainee:

"Hi Chryssie. I just wanted to say a huge thank-you for everything you have done for me.I know I was potentially a really tricky student for you since I had already completed a course in Colour Consulting and Personal Styling in the past, however you were still keen to take me on and adjust your mentoring style to reflect my many needs.

In particular I was really impressed with your knowledge of colour and how it changes people in a positive way for each individual. I  really love the colour system you have developed because it is so logical and easy to use. It has given me confidence and I feel  much happier using this virtually fool proof method. Needless to say my clients are happy with the results too!

I also just wanted to say I was really impressed with the 4 step personal shopping system as well because its easy to use for stylists and clients alike.  I really enjoyed learning the technique you taught me on how to help a client identify their own personal style based on their personality and personal preferences .  It's so subtly  simple yet so powerful. There is nothing I like more than seeing a client's eyes light up when they have that 'ah ha' moment seeing their own style materialize for them; and best of all comprehend why it is a perfect match for them to express who they truly are!

So thank-you so much for your energy, your kindness, your patience ,and unwavering support! I have loved every minute of it."

Brenda-lee, Levin

Your questions answered

The training programmes I offer transcend fashion and looks. For me, holistic colour and style consulting is a way of discovering my clients’ uniqueness and empowering them to express their authentic selves with confidence. Looking at the individual on all levels of their being, rather than only their physical appearance, allows people to get a sense of who they are in a new, wholesome way — and this is what I teach in my training courses. What is more, my approach to colour and style consulting is based on the belief that everyone is perfect the way they are. I encourage clients to see past the limiting beliefs they hold about their bodies and to see their unique beauty. My consultations and trainings focus on people’s asset areas and I place great emphasis on positive language. There will be no talk of “slimming down”, “covering up” or “hiding away” parts of you in my training.
The entire style consultancy training comprises seven training days and the complete colour consultancy course consists of six training days. If you would like to do an orientation course, are only interested in certain parts of the training, or would like to break the full training up into smaller chunks, I offer a range of 1-day, 2-day, and 3-day modules.
Yes, I offer the option of booking individual modules for those who want to add specific skills to their toolbox. This is also a great option for you if you would like to experience the way I work before committing to the full training. As a taster experience, I recommend booking the 2-day Colour Orientation module, which is designed as the perfect starting point on your journey. If it is the right fit, you are welcome to upgrade to the full colour consultancy training from there.
Generally, training courses are held in Christchurch. If completing the training in person is not possible for you, I am also happy to offer you online training sessions via Zoom.
Yes, I am happy to offer you live training sessions via Zoom.
Yes, the full style consultancy training (7 days) includes men’s styling. Generally, I tailor all my training courses to your experience and needs, so I am happy to incorporate men’s styling into any modules you choose as well.
Yes, you will receive a certificate upon completion of the training course.
Yes, I welcome personal stylists with previous experience to my training. As someone who has been in the industry for a long time, I fully understand that people have vastly different backgrounds and needs. You might already have completed training in style consulting, colour analysis, or personal shopping and want to refresh or deepen your knowledge. This is why I offer 1:1 training that is tailored to your experience and what you would like to achieve. You are free to choose for yourself which skills you would like to acquire or enhance and what parts of the training you would like to do.
Absolutely! Colour and style consulting is a valuable skill set that can greatly enhance the services of many professionals in the beauty and fashion industry. In particular beauty therapists, hairdressers, and fashion retail staff will benefit from training in colour and style. Adding colour and style consultations to your list of services or simply infusing your existing services with your new skills will make you stand out from others in the industry.
Yes, I am happy to arrange an individual payment plan with you to make this training as accessible as possible.
Yes, I am happy to offer ongoing support and guidance after your training course. I know how daunting it can feel to be left to figure everything out yourself at the end of a training course and how much of a difference it can make to have a mentor that guides you. If you would like to be supported every step of the way on your business journey, you can opt for ongoing mentoring at the end of your training course. Your mentoring sessions are tailored to your needs and can include support with business building, marketing, and sales skills.
