Bri Maxwell with BriStyles Helps Clients Put Their Best Foot Forward with an Image That Shines, Inside and Out
What do you do as a professional stylist?
As a personal stylist, I work one-on-one with clients to elevate their image according to their goals, lifestyle and budget. This could include a complete closet overhaul, a strategic shopping trip to add key pieces into their wardrobe, a seasonal wardrobe refresh, a wardrobe inspiration session where I make complete outfits with what they already have in their wardrobe, special event or vacation styling, and continued wardrobe maintenance.
What do you like most about your job, find most rewarding?
It is so gratifying to see a client gain confidence and knowledge about how to elevate their image through style. Many times I see a physical change in their posture and attitude when they put on an outfit that fits, flatters and meets their goals. I love hearing the phrase “I never would have picked this out/tried this on/considered this outfit, and I love it!”
What do you like least?
Why should someone use your services?
Whether we like it or not, image does matter. It is a reflection of you, your professional life and your personal life. Working with a professional stylist helps you be strategic about your image to elevate your life in all realms. Many clients do not know how to choose pieces that fit, flatter and function within their goals, lifestyle and budget, and many do not have the desire or the time to find those pieces. In hiring me, my clients know that they are investing strategically in an elevation of their image that is highly tailored to their needs.
