Section One: Customized Color Analysis Certification

The color analysis training section uses the most advanced and thorough color system available for women and men.


It includes the creation of customized color fans. No previous color training is needed, but this course is also excellent for consultants familiar with the seasonal systems and want a more thorough color system. Students learn to identify and select human body coloring as well as selecting flattering colors for the customized color fan. The Stoltz Image Color Set, ideal for increasing the speed and accuracy of color analysis and used in all Stoltz Image consults, is only made available to graduates of the Stoltz Image Institute.


*All students will receive their own personal custom color analysis and a customized color fan. Female students will receive a cosmetic makeover.

Section 2: Body Style Analysis & Styling Outfit Certification

The Female Body Style Analysis helps objectively identify the female body shape and determine the styles of clothing that will accent her best features. Dressing for her specific body shape is not a simple process and the techniques learned in this course can take a great deal of time and energy to master. But learning and applying these techniques will produce wonderful results. You will be able to shop easily for clients by looking at the garment on the hanger and immediately determine if it should be taken into the dressing room.


Styling outfits is very frustrating for some women. This service known as “Styling Outfits” is the most popular consult requested. As a consultant you must learn to create magic in the clients closet. Organizing the wardrobe in the closet and “shopping in her closet” styling new outfits that she would have never done is invaluable.

The reason I chose to train with Elaine Stoltz was because of her belief in hands on experience. Everything she teaches she backs up with a hands-on approach working with actual clients. This approach not only teaches you through a lecture, but also allows you to practice with a client while being supervised and being able to ask questions.
