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.

What Can I Expect?
Client experiences will differ based on the services booked.

During that session we also take measurements, determine the body shape, and discuss color story. From there, we develop a detailed plan to best meet client needs which could include personal shopping, a closet detox, hair and make-up, and a host of other tools. All clients who purchase a full styling package also receive a customized Look Book.
