Take your time and review some of the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) about Your Chic is Showing (YCS), hiring a personal stylist, and our policies and procedures.
What is a personal stylist?
A personal stylist is someone who helps people understand fashion trends, clothing styles, and color stories/theory. Fashion stylists work one-on-one with their clients to enhance or improve their personal style through clothing, accessories, hair and make-up. A personal stylist is not a wardrobe stylist (hired by productions, publications, etc. to be a part of the team selecting a look for a specific project or event) or a personal shopper (someone who is generally well versed in putting together looks for one particular store, designer or brand).
Why should I hire a personal stylist?
There are many reasons our clients seek out the services of YCS including a major life event or change, a need to update or revamp their wardrobe, a new job or career change, a dislike of shopping, the desire to understand how to dress for their body type, etc. The one thing all of our clients have in common is that they want to feel more confident in the clothing that they wear and the way they dress.

Booking, Appointments and Cancellations
How do I book an appointment?
To begin your personal styling experience, you will complete a brief introductory questionnaire. Upon completion of your questionnaire, you will be directed to our booking site where you can schedule your complimentary style consultation where we will review your questionnaire, discuss your style goals, talk about which services will best meet your needs, discuss your budget, and review payment options. It will also be a chance for you to ask me any questions that you may have.
After our initial consultation, you will receive a client agreement and an invoice to a) pay your deposit, b) pay-in-full, or c) pay your first installment payment. Upon execution of the agreement and payment of the invoice, we will schedule our time together to fulfill your services.
