In fact, the majority of your clients might even fall in more or less the same age group as you, simply because people seem to relax and relate better with their peers the older they become.

Our answers to your questions
What does an Image Consultant do?
An Image Consultant is a professionally trained individual who helps either a person or a company to enhance their image.
Encapsulated under the word ‘image’ you have everything from clothing consultations and upgrade suggestions, colour determination, style security, make-up tips, hair advice all the way down to everyday etiquette and formalities.
Is the market saturated? Are there too many image consultants?
The world will never be too big for the amount of image consultants out there … every person needs one. Image consulting stems beyond advising one person and lends itself exceptionally well to being a valuable attribute to the corporate environment.
Companies need people like us to show them what works for them on a grand scale and on a daily basis. Even if there are 10 consultants (which we guarantee there isn’t) in your area, there will always be someone who hasn’t been reached yet who needs your help without them even realizing. Currently, around 250 individuals are actively practicing and pursuing image consulting, so our market needs you!
There is a limitless number of spheres and facets to image consulting you just need to go out and find the one that suits you whether it be speaking, teaching or empowering one, two, or a group of individuals – find your flair and flourish, the industry will welcome you with open arms.
How much money can an Image consultant make?
This is wholeheartedly determined by you. If your heart is set on a goal and you are driven, determined and willing to work then you will most certainly succeed.
Putting yourself out in the market and making people crave what you know is where it all begins. Don’t be afraid to take that step because when you do you are capable to make up to if not more than R20,000 a day or weekend – and that is putting it lightly.
Will SA Image help me build my business?
Essentially it is up to you to get down to business, but we do offer a support system to guide you for a lifetime. Our Sisterhood is an optional community to join after you graduate, should you wish to do so.
The Sisterhood is an army of empowering women who like, share and support each other’s successes. We will continuously update and give new insight as to what we experience in the industry, trends and advice.
Do I get everything I need to practice image consulting?
Absolutely! We have optional colour-boards which you can purchase if you want, it is not a necessity, but we highly recommend it. Other than the boards, everything you would need to be a successful image consultant is included: manuals, measuring equipment, draping and the course material of course.
Will I as an individual be internationally accredited?
No one individual is internationally accredited after completing a course in South Africa, regardless of which image consulting course you do.
So, once you completed your studies with the SA Image Academy you are not Internationally Accredited, merely local. However, every individual can easily follow the accreditation process through the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) who certifies you as an individual to become a Certified Image Consultant Internationally.
What is the App?
The APP is what makes the fashion world go round! It is your own personal stylist in your pocket. Not only is it personalized to your unique personality, measurements and profile, but it is also your own image consultant for your next and next AND next shopping trip.
What does the fact that we have an app say about The SA Image Academy?
Internationally, we are THE ONLY entity who owns an APP like this – it is quite literally out of this world unique – this means, if you have the APP, you are exclusive to the Image Consulting world … and who wouldn’t want that?
We are leaders, we are pioneers, we are ground breakers and we are the innovators of this industry who needs people like you to join the image army so that we can continue taking the consulting world by storm!
What if I don’t finish the online course in six months?
Once you have enrolled you are working at your own pace. We don’t necessarily encourage and set deadlines, reaching your own milestones and course goals are up to you. We want the knowledge, facts and information to be fresh and fabulous in your mind before you go out in the field – what you learnt shouldn’t be forgotten simply because you dragged out the process too long.
However, from experience we know that without that little bit of added pressure from a lurking deadline, things can get postponed and avoided which stretches the whole process out and it begins to feel like a chore rather than a passion.
How does my preferred payment plan affect my course length?
The option for the extensive payment plan is merely to accommodate more individuals. The payment plan essentially controls the rate at which you have access to the content. As you pay, the course unlocks on your device – we work at your pace, according to your needs and we support you along the way.
Nothing is unachievable and you can most certainly achieve your desired outcome, even if it is not at the same rate or with the same intentions as a friend of yours who is also doing the same course.
Can I do the course if I’m not in South Africa?
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. We are all human and every human needs an image consultant – regardless of the continent you live on. Whether you are from the North or the South of any corners of any continent, you can enroll. Our online course lends itself exceptionally well to any individual who craves the need to equip themselves with the power to empower other individuals around them. We send you everything you need, and the beauty of our APP is that you can download it wherever you are.
What is the one thing that you see in students who became the most active image consultants?
The golden thread weaving itself through each and every individual currently flourishing in the industry is that they know their ‘why,’ they have a drive, and they know what they want to achieve in the long haul. Always strive to look at the bigger picture and crave the success, because what you put out will come back to you tenfold. It all depends on you!
What makes SA Image different?
We truly believe that the heartbeat of beauty is not just internal, beauty extends beyond that and we strive, with everything we put out there, that the essence of this gets braided into every aspect of every sphere related to Image Consulting. We can’t fix the broken, but we provide the take that puts the pieces back where they belong so that the healing can commence.
Unbelievable, Inspiring, motivation and educational-This course helped me to look at myself from a whole other perfective, which enabled me to have a more postive impact on the people surrounding me.
