"Become an Independant Colour Consultant"

Qualified Image Consultants can give clients the correct advice to enhance their best features through the use of colours, make-up, clothing and grooming. They help them to discover their appropriate ‘look’ and adapt their appearance to make the best of their features.

This is done through an analysis process which ensures that the consultant will remain relevant and objective. People tend to give advice according to what fashion they like or follow, and this is not necessarily the best route for the client. It is essential that consultants evaluate the needs of the client and then ensure that this is in line with their personal style expression and lifestyle.

Image Consulting is all about managing perceptions. Whether clients will use your services to land a new position in a company or to just wear the right colours, they will benefit from all the advice you have to give, and you will enjoy sharing your knowledge with them. It is very rewarding to witness how clients’ confidence and self-acceptance grows.

No matter what you do after this course or how you decide to apply your knowledge, Image Consulting expands your base and allows you to develop a career path that has no boundaries.

Once I finish the course, do I start my own business or am I contractually bound to 1st Solutions?
We train you as an Independent Image Consultant which means that you will start your own business and do not need to pay us any levies or royalties on income that you generate.  We offer e-mail and telephone assistance, providing you with valuable information on marketing and dealing with clients, as well as a page on the SA Professional Image Consultant Association website (free for 1 year).

Are you accredited with the South African Education and Training Authority (SETA)?
1st Solutions is accredited as a training provider with the South African Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) and our trainers are known as accredited trainers with both SETA and the International Business Training Association (IBTA). Our trainers are both qualified and experienced in facilitation and training in a vast number of programs and courses, therefore adding to the expertise that they bring to the image consultant course.

Are your trainers and course mentors qualified?
There seems to be a trend emerging whereby Image Consultants start to advertise that they can train other Image Consultants. I would be very wary of this! Passing Math's at school does not make you a Math's teacher. You are right to insist on having qualified trainers and facilitators that are competent in all aspects of training as well as ensuring transfer of training. At 1st Solutions trainers have to be accredited and Image training experience is essential!

After long deliberation and research as to be at the right address for training of image consulting, I am extremely happy with my choice of 1st Solutions. I thoroughly enjoyed the course which was very professional, well thought out, extremely practical and a whole lot of fun. The absolute best was given along with everything we needed to begin as an image consultant the very next day.

Thank you 1st Solutions.......... for giving us so much, for the quick responses to queries, for professional knowledge and for so much hands on application. It was a fantastic experience and I am looking forward to my consultancy days ahead.

All the best

Wow, where should I start. In this course learning is different. My expectations were exceeded on every level. This is the industry where one can add value to one’s life and make the other person feel their best! I saw something I did not expect. Lianne and Norine your level of professionalism comes naturally when you conduct the course - you ladies are the best. Keep the fires burning ladies!! Your efforts are much appreciated. Thank you.


My experience of the course is that it was mind blowing. No time to stop and think, but rather do as you go along, it really took me out of my comfort zone of thinking and procrastinating. Norine is lovely - to the point and patient. Had it not been for her

I doubt I would have enjoyed the course. Thank you to all the ladies at 1st Solutions.

My Image Consulting Course presented by Norine from 1st Solutions, was the best investment of my life!

I only wanted to use this knowledge for myself, but now I am planning on making this my career. The fun way

Norine handled our class and practical sessions made the whole experience so much more special. We left the course equipped with all the kit and knowledge we need to start our own business immediately.

I will recommend this course with 1st Solutions to everyone!

Lianne I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would like to thank you for the amazing effort you go to. Your prep work is exemplary and your patience, manner and warmth, very few have to give. It is always a pleasure to be guided by someone who has a thorough knowledge of their profession, and above all has a passion to pass it on to others, for that I take my hat off to both you and Norine.

Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you.

Ek weet jy hoor dit baie, maar ek wil net weer vir jou baie dankie sê vir alles verlede week. Jy het 'n wonderlike manier om iets oor te dra en jou kennis te deel. En ek is seker ek praat namens die ander as ek sê dat jy ons elkeen met selfvertroue daar laat uit!

Soos jy weet was ek maar bietjie skepties voor die kursus,
maar al my verwagtinge is oortref! Ek sal die kursus vir enigeen aanbeveel.
As jy dus enige verwysings soek, kan jy enige tyd my naam en
kontakbesonderhede vir 'n voornemende kursusganger gee.

Wil maar net vir jou dankie gelukwens met die standaard en
inhoud van die kursus.


Lianne Smuts is an amazing trainer and developer and their business is highly accredited.
I have done my individual Image consulting course with her and will recommend her and their business with assurance and trust.

Wholistic Image - A Professional way of Being

I had the most wonderful, exciting week. I have learnt so much and am
extremely excited about my way forward in Namibia. I actually have to
calm myself down from time to time and remind myself to take it easy.
My Course feedback:

Very, Very well organised (in terms of course, setup, lunch etc)
Facilitators are extremely patient and understanding.
I thought we were going to do more theory but doing it the practical way
was an absolute winner.
I was never bored once and everything got stuck in my head.
You practice what you preach (positive motivation for me)
Just the overall success that you have achieved so far is a great inspiration
for me personally, so in a year or two you might be coming to Namibia
to assist me.

Thanks you so much.
