Image consultancy can be easily defined as a professional field where clients hire an image consultant to evaluate, improve, enhance, update, or upgrade their appearance to ensure that their Image is consistent with their personal, social, and professional roles and goals—with what they want to accomplish in life.
Boosting your physical image usually helps to make a great first impression and that’s exactly why image consultants are very important especially to celebrities and politicians. It takes only an eye for style and passion to be an image consultant. Kenyans are slowly embracing the importance of image in the workplace because a big majority nowadays want to get ahead of the rest and/or make an impact.
