What does Style for Substance do?
Style for Substance is a platform that connects you with personal stylists and image consultants who don’t work on commission and aren’t affiliated with any brands or products. Here, you can find the right stylist for you and book a Zoom call to get trustworthy answers to your image and style questions.
How does it work?
There are three easy steps.
Step 1: Search our database of image consultants and personal stylists to find the right one for you.
Step 2: Choose a date, time, and appointment length for your call. (Appointments range from 10 minutes to 55 minutes.) Confirm the details and pay in advance.
Step 3: We’ll send you a confirmation email with your Zoom link. When it’s time to join the meeting, just click on the link. We recommend having questions prepared in advance of your call.
When should I schedule an appointment?
Whenever you need one! If you have a specific event in mind, you can schedule ahead of time to talk through your outfit options or on the same day for a second opinion before heading out the door. We can also help you with everyday style issues, like understanding which of your clothes are most flattering and how to style them. Our stylists and image consultants come from a range of backgrounds and cover dozens of areas of expertise, so they can shepherd you through any tricky social or professional situation.
How do I find the right personal stylist or image consultant for me?
Finding the right stylist for you depends on your reasons for scheduling an appointment. If you have a specific event in mind, do you want advice on the day of the event? If so, filter by the event date to find stylists available when you need them. You can also filter by areas of expertise and sort by cost. If you are thinking about working with a stylist in-person at your home (now or at some point), you’ll want to find a stylist close to you.
Is it ever appropriate to work with a stylist or image consultant on Style for Substance directly through her personal business?
I’m new to Zoom. How does it work?
YouTube has some great clips on how to sign up, download the required software, and join a Zoom meeting. Here are some links to tutorials directly from Zoom:
Try to find a well-lit space that’s quiet enough for you to hold a conversation. The consultant/stylist will need to be able to see you clearly to offer good advice. You may want to test out your device’s camera in the space you’ll use ahead of time to make sure you have things in order before the appointment starts.
What should I expect during my appointment?
Your consultant/stylist will likely begin by learning more about you and your goals for the appointment. Be prepared to show and tell what you already have in your closet. Our shortest appointments are good opportunities to ask for advice on just a couple of outfit options. Longer appointments allow you to receive more detailed services. Either way, it’s best to have everything you might need for the appointment ready to go.
