My Experience at Become A Stylist


I live in Bangkok and decided to make the journey to Melbourne to attend Become a Stylist. During the weekend I discovered what I needed to be a successful stylist and decided to enrol in the Advanced Certificate Of Professional Style and Image. I found that there was something special about Australian Style Institute; they teach you the important things you need to know in the styling industry, with a wealth of experience and knowledge. I had done my research and found that other courses on the market didn’t compare and that what I would learn at Australian Style Institute is not taught anywhere else in the world. Since Become a Stylist and beginning my Advanced course, I have been on an incredible journey. I wanted to be the first person to boost the confidence of plus size women in Asia, so I branded myself as ‘Asia’s First Plus Size Stylist’. This has led me to television appearances, creating a plus size model contest and helping women to embrace their attributes. I now have the ability to change the lives of women and love waking up every morning knowing what I do makes a difference to others.

I was looking to make a career change into something I was passionate about and had always played with the idea of becoming a stylist. I was drawn to the Become a Stylist weekend as I wanted to know what Australian Style Institute’s courses would involve and whether becoming a stylist was the career change I craved. At the time I was in a completely different career, having studied sports science for 6 years and working with youth athletes. From the minute I arrived at Become a Stylist, the atmosphere was warm and nurturing. You can’t learn everything about styling in two days, however a lot of the styling basics were covered, enough that I knew styling was the career change that I was looking for. It really is the best way to “try before you buy”. Now I am working as a full time personal and editorial stylist while working towards finishing my Advanced Certificate course. Making the change to styling has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and I am so glad I chose Australian Style Institute to help me make it happen.

I had been receiving information from Australian Style Institute for a number of years, waiting for the right time. I was working as an urban and regional, in a very corporate environment but lacked the passion of being excited to start each day and I always felt something was missing. The Become a Stylist weekend, was the very first time in my life that I felt I belonged. I had never been in a room of such amazing people, all like-minded and interested in fashion styling. The information delivered was so powerful, yet relatable – day 1 my idea of fashion was blown out of the water, and by day 2, I was already in the headspace of a stylist. Completing my first editorial fashion shoot was pretty spectacular, and is a piece of work I am extremely proud of. But for me, the biggest achievement since attending Become a Stylist in October 2015, was finding my true self. I enrolled in the Advanced Certificate of Professional Style and Image Course right then and there on the weekend, and have never looked back.

I decided to attend Become a Stylist in March 2016 because I wanted to obtain insight into the career paths available to stylists. I was working as an interior stylist at the time but always had an interest in fashion, particularly the personal styling side. The weekend provided me with the chance to not only connect with like-minded people but also the enthusiasm and confidence to take the leap towards a new career path. During Become a Stylist I enrolled in the 12-month Certificate of Professional Style and Image course. Since then I have secured a position as a personal stylist with a reputable personal styling business in Sydney, while also styling my own clients. I feel so energised and am now doing what I truly love: helping clients from all walks of life look and feel fabulous.
