One thing that pains me the most is seeing people undercharge for their services. It kills me to hear students say they charge low prices for luxury styling services. In this blog post, I will discuss the three things you need to have before you raise your expenses.
The first thing you need before you raise your prices is a reputation. You cannot charge premium fees until you have a reputation. Personal styling is a luxury service, and there is a baseline price. However, the enormous importance you have as a stylist, the more you can charge. Make sure you are showing people your importance. Have you been featured in the media, or are you the number-one stylist in your city? What makes you unique? You want to say, “I’m going to charge what I’m going to charge because I’m the best and have proof that I am.”
The second thing you need is results. You must have results to show you are good at your work. As a stylist, you must show that you’ve styled dozens or hundreds of people. You must deliver proof that you are a fantastic stylist. Post before and after pictures, testimonials, and screenshots of text messages that clients send you. Show people that you’ve changed their lives.
The final thing you need is mad skills. You must be good at what you do if you want to raise your prices. Stack those skills and stack that paper. Strive to be the best. I always say, “Stop undercharging and raise your prices.” However, you have to have these three things – reputation, results, and skills. You have to be the best stylist in the world. You must be an expert in body confidence, style, mindset, and more. You must be willing to learn and expand your skillset to thrive and succeed.
Do not think about changing your prices until you have these three things. You cannot just copy someone else’s price. You have to be the best and prove you are the best. You have to show people that you are good at what you do. You have to have mad skills that pay the bills. Are you willing to do what it takes to raise your prices?
