The Style Academy International is a world-class online training school that is committed to providing our students with the tools and support they need to follow successful careers in the styling industry.
We offer affordable, yet comprehensive training that is completed online and completely self-paced with no time limits for completion. You'll have access to the materials for as long as you need them, so you can take as much time as you need.
We are committed to providing our students with an exceptional learning experience, where they are able to grow and develop in a supportive environment. We welcome students from all walks of life, without regard to age, race, color, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religion.
Our training programs have been personally developed by someone who knows exactly what it takes to become a successful personal stylist, our Founder, and CEO, Louisa Gabriel. Using the skills developed working as a personal stylist for over a decade, creating her own 6-figure stylist business, and her expansive knowledge of business development, she has created a curriculum that provides the essential and real-world skills needed for success as a personal stylist.
We continually monitor our training program curriculums to ensure that we provide the most up-to-date training for our students that reflects any changes that occur not only within the styling and fashion industry but also within societal attitudes and preferences. And, because our students receive lifetime access to our programs, they also get access to any new and updated modules at no additional cost.
Unlike other online fashion schools that only offer styling skills training, we offer a complete range of training, resources, and specialized coaching that can take you from aspiring stylists all the way to 6-figure success. Whether you are brand new to styling and looking to learn the essential styling skills, or you're a seasoned professional looking to grow your business, we offer everything that you need.
Our commitment to our students does not end at graduation! We've developed an exclusive alumni portal that provides the graduates of our certificate program with FREE access to additional training and tools that will help them to advance their skills and develop their businesses.

98% of our graduates are now working as personal stylists and running successful businesses thanks to the training and support received here at The Style Academy International.
Meet Our Founder and CEO
Hi there future stylists!
Thanks for stopping by The Style Academy International!
I’m Louisa Gabriel, certified image consultant and stylist, business success coach, and all-around style entrepreneur. Like you, I believe in the power of style, and I’ve spent over a decade helping others to understand and use this transformative power to make positive changes in their lives.
After building my own personal styling business into a 6-figure success, I started The Style Academy International to help people from all backgrounds and all walks of life to turn their dream of being a successful stylist into a reality. I’ve helped hundreds of people just like you from around the world to develop the essential skills they need to be a personal stylist, and how to start and grow their business.
What’s the secret to my success?
I have a unique set of skills and experience that no other stylist business coach has. I have a degree in psychology and business, and I’m also an NLP coach, so I understand human behavior and how that can impact our success in life and in business. Prior to becoming a stylist, I spent over 16 years working as a senior director in business management, development, and communications, so I understand how to develop businesses and how to effectively market a business for success. I have a graduate certificate from Cornell University in Entrepreneurship, so I know the nuances of being an entrepreneur and how to navigate the small business world. I took $250 and started a personal styling business which I then grew into a 6-figures success within a few years, so I know what it takes to be a successful stylist.
And most important!
I truly love sharing my skills and knowledge to help others achieve their dream of becoming successful personal stylists. And, if you’re ready, I’d love to take that journey with you!
