The Only Personal Stylist Course For You!

Nicky Hambleton-Jones, renowned Stylist and TV Presenter from the UK’s leading makeover show Channel 4’s 10 Years Younger runs Exclusive Personal Styling Courses at the NHJ Style Academy.

The NHJ Style Academy was life changing for me. I did the course to find my own style and have learned so much. I can easily choose clothes that look amazing now when I used to struggle and end up looking drab. I know what suits me and why. I feel happier and more confident than I have in years. I highly recommend the course.
— Erica, NHJ Style Academy Graduate
The NHJ Style Academy course has exceeded all my expectations and I just feel so inspired and excited about the future! Thanks EVERYONE for your support and bringing out the ‘me’ that I’d lost hidden under the black layers!! I’m on such a high and so grateful. This is just the beginning!

With an unfulfilled desire to become a personal stylist coupled with a passion for fashion, I embarked on the NHJ Style Academy 4 Day ‘How to become a top personal stylist’ course. Thank goodness I did! It was amazing. Nicky and her team delivered an exciting, challenging, supportive and very professional, well thought out course that really opened my eyes and gave me hands-on experience of what it would be like to be a personal stylist. It has equipped me with the essential skills and confidence to style myself, friends and future clients. I also made some lovely friends along the way. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking of pursuing a similar goal or career.

The course was very valuable as a grounding in styling. It gave me all of the essential tools to prepare for supporting clients in wardrobe consultations and personal styling. The course gave practical hints on how to use colour, style body shapes and support clients through the process. I have found this experience challenging, rewarding and a very collaborative process.

Amazing 4 days with incredible knowledge shared by Nicky and her team, just loved every minute and can’t wait to go out there and get styling.

Read the blog post on the Story of one of our recent Personal Styling Correspondence Course Graduates

It has always been my dream to become a Personal Stylist, and last year I finally took the plunge and signed up for the Correspondence Course. I loved the course, the tasks were great and my styling evolved the further I got, as did my own personal style. Putting it all into practice for the final two modules was great and was a real confidence boost. I have also carried out work experience alongside one of Nicky’s stylists in London and that confirmed it for me that I made the best decision ever in October last year! Thoroughly recommend this course, and I can’t wait to take it further

From that very first call with the NHJ Style team I knew this was the correspondence course for me, and by the time I completed it… I was ready to fly! When I graduated, not only did I truly feel confident in my styling knowledge, but I had already styled 6 individuals for the course work (giving me referrals), as well as had my website and business plan all set-up. Since then, my styling business has gone from strength to strength and I have recently been voted ‘Best Personal Stylist in Paris 2018’. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done, thank you for this amazing journey.
— Anelle, 46
I just wanted to say that I started this course a couple of weeks ago and so far, I think it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The course is very well structured and detailed unlike any other correspondence course I’ve done. It gives you an opportunity to experience and prepare for a ‘real’ life of a personal stylist with challenging tasks, opportunities to meet people and start building your own business. I cannot wait to complete my first module and move on to the next stage.

Learn how to style the men in your life!

This exclusive 2 day intensive course in London, personally run by Nicky Hambleton-Jones, will give you all the invaluable styling skills you need to style a male client and the men in your life. 

We launched the Menswear Personal Styling Course following the huge success of our Flagship Personal Styling Course run by Nicky Hambleton-Jones and her team of professional stylists at the NHJ Style Academy. 

Styling men is very different to styling women, this new course is designed to expand your fashion and styling knowledge and increase the services you are able to offer as a personal stylist. 

This course is also open to men who want to learn how to style themselves.

Like all our personal styling courses it’s fun, informative, intense and interactive - you will be putting into practice everything you learn, so as soon as you finish the course you’ll be ready to use your new skills!

Again the NHJ Style Team smashed this! Absolutely loved the Men’s course as much as the Flagship Course. A brilliant insight into styling men, really thorough on the detail and brilliant hands-on experience with a real live male client. It was a great refresher and reminder as to what we should be doing with any client so really well worth doing. Thank you again guys. Loved it!
— Alice, 47

What does the Menswear Personal Styling Course cover?

The course covers the theory on how to style men as well as essential hands-on practical tasks - using male models - to put your learning into practice.

  • An introduction to Mens styling and how it differs from Womens Styling

  • Sizing for men

  • Wardrobe requirements

  • Fashion terminology

  • Mens body shapes and how to style them

  • Using colour and accessories in a man’s wardrobe

  • How to shop for a male client

  • Certificate endorsed by Nicky Hambleton-Jones

Read about one of our Graduate’s experience of the Menswear Styling Course HERE.

The Menswear Course is the perfect way to add men’s styling to your skill set. You learn the key differences in styling and dressing men from women in a friendly environment. All the key knowledge is delivered in a really easy to digest manner but the best bit is getting to practice the skills straight away through the wide variety of tasks. I learned the most when styling our male model to a specific brief and it was especially useful to see the same model styled so differently by the other stylists on my course, purely because of a different brief. Nicky and the team make everything really easy and are happy to answer questions and give guidance in an encouraging and supportive way. I left equipped with a new skill set, I can put into practice straight away in my styling business. I would highly recommend.

The NHJ Style Menswear Styling Course has been a wonderful experience. I feel much more knowledgeable about the details of men’s tailoring. Whilst also being confident that I can style men depending on their body shape.
