When the USSR opened its borders, and the new post-Soviet countries began to integrate into the world cultural community, it turned out that we were hopelessly behind fashion. After all, fashion in the country existed for the elite, while most people dressed in whatever they had to, trying to choose a combination of clothes, accessories, hairstyles to their own taste.
It is not surprising that the stylists who appeared soon became so popular. After all, these are specialists in the field of image creation, working with clothes, as well as with hair and makeup.
However, the number of stylists quickly exceeded what was needed. And their very work is clothed with a group of myths.
Stylists are ordered by those who do not have their own taste. Usually people with a lack of taste hide it to the last, refusing to invite stylists. Usually, the clients of such specialists still have sufficient taste, they know what exactly they want to change in themselves, only that there is not enough specific knowledge in coloristics, types and color types. Usually a few meetings with stylists are enough for a person to choose the perfect wardrobe and develop an individual style with the help of them.
There is no need for the services of stylists, I myself (a) know what I need. If everything suits you in appearance, then perhaps it is true, there is no such need. However, usually those who want to change something in themselves resort to stylists. It is communication with a professional that will help a person understand what exactly needs to be changed in himself and how best to do it. Naturally, we are not talking about professionals who just need to look good - politicians, TV stars, actors, etc.
Rich people resort to stylists. This was the case before, on the wave of interest in the newly emerging specialists, now the wave of excitement has subsided and prices have become much more affordable. Today, you can recommend the services of a stylist to those who want to take a higher position, receive a higher salary, or start moving in higher circles. After all, for all it is simply necessary to look decent, because they are greeted by clothes. It is the appearance and clothing that is a serious statement of the level of claims. It is possible to show up for an interview for a job as a janitor in a T-shirt and shorts, but this is not acceptable if you want to get a top manager's job. Unless only your authority and professionalism will be able to drown out the negative impression of a bad appearance. And at a pretentious or glamorous party, a poorly dressed person will not attract attention.
Stylists recommend exclusively expensive items from the collections of brand designers. Many people think this way: "Anyone will look good in a $ 10,000 D @ G dress." It is necessary to understand that a person must decide for himself in which image he will be most comfortable, but stylists, with the help of styles and colors, will help to realize the idea in such a way as to highlight all the advantages as much as possible. But what exactly to buy is up to the client. However, experts advise that you still have a few expensive things in your wardrobe, they may be needed when you need to impress. For men, this is at least one suit, several ties and shirts, and good shoes. For women - a skirt, trousers, a jacket, several blouses and a cocktail dress. This is simply an obligatory arsenal of clothing for a person who, by the nature of his service, communicates with wealthy and significant people.
Exceptionally busy people become clients of stylists. This is often true. After all, it is people who value time who know what exactly they want to get in the end, who will help them in this and how. With the help of stylists, they will be able to impress potential partners, subordinates and employees. Likewise, they entrust homework to the servants, and the children to the nanny, in order to free up time for rest or other business. However, such a statement cannot be regarded as a dogma. Many turn to stylists to find out just for themselves how to look better, while not being very busy and not pursuing special goals.
The stylist needs to constantly pay, which hits the wallet. Standard communication with a stylist is as follows - you tell how you see yourself and what you want to change in yourself. The stylist, on the other hand, determines the colors, styles and types, and also advises the things that are most suitable. Further, the client already buys clothes for himself, taking into account the information received, usually one-time consultations are enough for an independent selection of a wardrobe in the future.
A stylist is needed only in order to raise one's own prestige - to boast of this fact to friends. If there is nothing more to boast about, then you can probably boast about the stylist. However, friends often notice changes in appearance themselves: "Have you lost weight? Have you got a new fan? You look rested!" It's everyone's business to tell them what the stylist has helped. The secret is precisely in the work of this specialist - the correct makeup, hairstyle and a set of clothes of the desired color and style.
The idea of having to wear clothes that the other person likes is ridiculous. A stylist who advises everyone to wear the same thing, what he likes, is like a doctor who gives all patients the same diagnosis. You should immediately protect yourself from visits to both such a doctor and such a stylist. A true specialist never single-handedly determines a person's style. A personal meeting is absolutely necessary, during which you can jointly determine what needs to be changed and what should be left, which image will be preferable and more comfortable. The stylist will be able to suggest styles that will emphasize the advantages and hide the disadvantages, taking into account the wishes, select the color scheme. At the same time, it will take into account the type of the client, his figure and, of course, wishes and preferences. The stylist should advise and help, not impose.
Shoppers and buyers are essentially the same, they are the same stylists. The trade of shoppers is the purchase of clothes. Usually, these people know where and what to buy and the approximate prices for these goods. Shoppers often have color and style knowledge. Buyers buy shoes and clothes for boutiques and shops. Their task is to visit foreign boutiques, choose from them the collection of interest (new or current) and then order it.
