If less than 48 hours notice is given, 50% of your fee will be forfeited. If more than 48 hours notice is given we will deduct a £50 admin fee when refunding the fee.

Rescheduling

There may be situations when rescheduling a confirmed booking by a client is necessary. There is no extra charge for this unless it happens more than two times. If this is the case there will be an additional charge of £25 per reschedule.

Travel Expenses

Travel expenses for the stylists are extra if the client is based outside of London / M25 for the Wardrobe Edit or group services. These are charged at 70p per mile (covering mileage and time); the first 20 miles each way is free and or a standard return train fare. For multiple sessions held at one time travel costs may be reduced or waived. Please contact Shikkuu Guides for a quote.

All parking, toll or congestion charge expenses will be payable by the client.

The agreed travelling amount is to be paid to the stylist on the day. If you are buying our personal styling services as a Gift Voucher you can pay for the travel expenses yourself - please inform our client managers of this on booking. If you are based outside of London / M25 we will match you with a stylist based close to you if possible to keep travel expenses to a minimum.

Wardrobe EDIT

Before your stylist arrives, we request that you arrange your wardrobe into like items. For example, group all your trousers together, shirts together and dresses together etc.

Identify the clothes and fashion accessories that you absolutely love and can't imagine living without. Your goal is to only keep those things that make you look beautiful or feel fabulous.

Spend some time going through magazines and picking out pictures of fashions or styles you particularly like.

Take a moment to focus on the things you want to discuss or the image you would like to achieve.

Personal Shopping 

Ensure you wear comfortable clothes that can be easily removed; constantly changing in and out of your clothes can be time consuming and exhausting.

Bring a pair of shoes with you, that you are most likely to wear with your clothes, preferably something with a heel, unless you are extremely tall. Ideally bring a pair of flats and a pair of heels

Bring any pieces of your clothing that you wish to match i.e. a top you have that you want to find a skirt for.

Make sure you wear or bring a bra to try on with tops or dresses.

Please inform your stylist if you have budget constraints; this may affect the shops she selects.

Beauty Services

Collate all your make-up into one place and sort into like items e.g. lipsticks, eye shadow etc.

Spend some time going through magazines picking out any make-up looks you particularly like.

Be willing to:

Have a lot of fun

Experiment and try new things

Love yourself - one of the secrets to looking and feeling amazing is learning to love the way you are!

Styling and Fashion Forum Parties

Please have a room/area ready in your chosen location where you can host the party. You may also like to provide refreshments for the group.

To make the most of your one-on-one time with the stylist, we suggest that each person in the group brings two or three outfits with them e.g. one typical work outfit, one typical casual outfit, and one typical going out outfit, so the stylist can give specific advice on these.
