There are a lot of stylists out here in the world. Have you ever wondered how to separate yourself from the pack?
Most self-proclaimed stylists love fashion and can put together dope outfits, but can they run their actual business? The key to being a great stylist isn't creating memorable looks. The key to being a great stylist is running your business effectively.
There aren't a ton of stylists running around with business degrees, so a lot of times they are learning through just trial and error versus utilizing proven business strategies to grow and maintain their business.
Kendra Y. Hill, Founder of The Business of Styling School (B.O.S.S.) ran a successful brand management firm for 6 years before going full-time as a personal stylist + creative director. This experience coupled with her Executive MBA from the Howard University School of Business has helped her secure clients who understand her value, pay her what she's worth (plus tax) and keep coming back for more.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to meet with Kendra one-on-one once a week (for 8 weeks) and hone your business skills in the fashion industry. Whether you're a current or aspiring personal stylist, fashion stylist, wardrobe stylist or celebrity stylist, this program is guaranteed to give you a deeper understanding of the business side of styling and give you the tools you need to succeed! This is also an awesome opportunity to make your passion a full-time career. Learn more about the program below.

You'll literally have the opportunity to ask any question and get advice on a vast array of business and styling topics. Classes are based on your schedule and are booked in advance on a first come, first serve basis. These classes are also recorded so you can revisit the information again and again.
