Terms and Conditions for In-House Flagship Personal Stylist Courses and Menswear Personal Stylist Courses:


The full payment of the personal styling course fees must be received 21 days prior to commencement of the course. Your place on the personal styling course cannot be guaranteed until full payment is received. We have the right to give your place to someone on the waiting list if you have not paid the full amount 21 days prior to the course start date.

All fees stated are inclusive of VAT.

Methods of payment

Fees can be paid online or by debit or credit card over the phone.

Payment by cheque is also accepted. Please make cheques payable to NHJ Style Academy.

Minimum age requirement

We generally have a policy of 18 years minimum, however we are open to the exception of 16 years plus.

Materials and equipment

The personal styling course fees include basic course materials which are provided.

If further course equipment is required by yourself, this will be included in the information pack which will be sent to you when you have secured a place.

Late applications

If there are places available on the course, we will accept late applications right up to one day before the course.

Late applications will usually have their place confirmed by email or phone.

Cancellations by us

Please note that the personal styling course has minimum attendance levels and may be cancelled if too few bookings are received.

NHJ Style Academy reserves the right to amend or cancel the course, and change the course location.

If we cancel a course we will endeavour to give you at least one week's notice and you will have the option of transferring to a later course or a full refund of the fees which will be returned to you within three weeks.

We will not be liable for any losses arising as a consequence of any modification or cancellation of the course. For example, if you are booking a hotel for the duration of the course we always advise to book refundable / changeable rates just in case.

Cancellations by you

If you wish to cancel your place on the course your request should be made in writing.

If your written request is received more than six weeks prior to the start of the course, you will be entitled to a full refund, less a £100 administrative cost. 

If your written request is received less than three weeks before the start of the course and hence after full payment has been made, but more than one week before the course starts, we will retain the deposit (£500 for womenswear course and £250 for menswear course).

If you cancel a week or less before the course we will not be able to refund you. Instead we will transfer you to the next available course.

If a replacement student is found prior to the course, you will receive a full refund less £100 administrative fee.


If you are unable to attend the course you are permitted to transfer your place to a substitute student up to one week before the course starts.

We must be notified in writing and there will be an administrative charge of £100 applied.

Non attendance

Non attendance of the personal styling course due to illness or for personal or professional reasons does not provide the right to refunds or a transfer to a later course. Extra tuition may be provided subject to availability.


If you are unable to attend the personal styling course you originally booked on you have the option to transfer to a future course. We must be notified in writing and there will be an administrative charge of £100 applied for each transfer if it is 21 days or less before the course start date.

Class postponement

If the class needs to be postponed for that same reason we will make every effort to reschedule the class or to add missed hours onto the remaining course. If for any reason the tutor is ill during the course we will endeavour to use another tutor to fill her space.

Photography and Videos

We may take photos and/or videos during the courses to use for promotional purposes including social media. If you would rather not be included in these please let us know before the course starts.

Work experience (for Flagship Personal Stylist Course only)

As part of the NHJ Style Academy's personal styling course we will offer you up to two days work experience with an NHJ Style personal stylist and client. This is not included as a specific cost in the course fee. It is an added extra we offer to students as an opportunity to gain practical experience. It is by no means compulsory or enforced and does not in any way preclude you from successfully completing the course if you decide not to do it. You will still receive a course certificate whether or not you take up the offer of work experience or not.

We will endeavour to offer each student both a wardrobe consultation and a personal shopping day as work experience whenever possible. However, if we are unable to offer a wardrobe consultation we will offer an additional personal shopping day or a styling event instead. We always try to arrange the wardrobe consultation session with a client near to where you are based, but if this is not possible and you need to travel we expect you to pay for any travel expenses yourself. All personal shopping days take place in London. 

One of the NHJ Style styling team will liaise directly with students to arrange convenient dates for their work experience. However, if a student commits to dates but then cancels on more than three occasions we won't offer you any further work experience sessions. The two work experience days must be taken within 3 months after the course ends unless otherwise agreed with the course tutor. 

Work Experience with Corporate Clients

Either during or after completion of your course NHJ Style may offer you the opportunity to gain work experience with us assisting with styling and/or training services for corporate clients. For reasons of client confidentiality you must not disclose the client by name. This also applies to any promotional or marketing materials including, but not limited to, your website, blogs, email, articles and social media.

Meeting Nicky Hambleton-Jones (for Flagship Personal Stylist Course only)

Should Nicky Hambleton-Jones be unable to attend the course at any stage during the week, an opportunity to meet her will be arranged at a future date.


On successful completion of your personal styling course you will be given a certificate endorsed by the course tutor and Nicky Hambleton-Jones.

Replacement certificates can be produced up to one year after completion of the course but will incur a fee of £50.

Trading and product names

None of NHJ Style Consultancy's trading or product names may be used by students in any way without our written consent.

Reference to 'Nicky Hambleton-Jones' may not be used by students to promote themselves without our written consent.

Students who have successfully completed the personal styling course are welcome to say on marketing materials that they have successfully completed an intensive personal styling course at the NHJ Style Academy.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
