Angela’s life purpose is to give people and teams confidence in how they look. People’s confidence will lead to the world being a more beautiful place and that is exactly the spark that started Style Angel many years ago in a time when hiring personal stylists was not the “in-thing”.
“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed our last couple of styling sessions.
To be able to purchase with confidence both clothes and now shoes and accessories makes shopping a treat, as well as a breeze. You truly are a one-stop shop and ‘go to’ girl. You have made me feel more confident in my dress and style, you bring with you your beautiful self with so much enthusiasm, love and generosity of spirit. Thank you seems inadequate.”
"With my wardrobe, I always felt like there were some gems in there but were lost among a whole lot of clothes that do not fit or do not suit or were on sale and still have tags on. I was really looking forward to getting some direction about what to shop for, colours that suited me, and to put an end to me buying items that look great on the hanger but unflattering on me.
The whole shopping experience was fantastic. I could see the difference that wearing the right colours for my fair skin tone was making to my overall appearance.
We also found a pair of Mavi jeans that made me lose two kilos instantly! I went home with four dresses, sandals, jeans, a work blouse and trousers, tank tops, and some great accessories, all without breaking the bank.
People comment every time I wear an item we bought together. I could not be happier!"
"I really enjoyed the shopping experience with you. It was great to learn about colours in particular, and I have been enjoying my purchases.
I think the session built confidence in my ability to determine what clothes suit me well. The black dress is something I am really looking forward to wearing when it gets a little warmer."
“It was a great day. Angela was very knowledgeable, but not pushy. She knew which shops were having sales (which helped the budget go further) and really got the choice of clothes correct for my style.”
“It was two hours of enjoying clothes shopping. I felt comfortable trying different styles and there was no pressure from Angela. Angela gave me a positive and fresh approach to selecting clothes. I was very sorry when the two hours were gone. I would recommend my stylist with a gold star. Put it on your bucket list!”
“Well, let me just say, as much as I dislike shopping, I did have a great day. I learned a lot and, as of today, I am absolutely stoked. I am wearing my new sandals (and, yes, my feet don’t look as tiny in these). Okay, I may have a pair of Lorna Jane pants on, but I have the watermelon-coloured top from Jacqui E and have had sooooo many people comment on how I look, and they love the colour on me!! Whoo hoo! I’m feeling like I am six feet tall today. I can’t thank you enough.”
“I loved the style consultation on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, I made a real effort to wear soft summer colours and, when I was out shopping in David Jones Tuggerah, a sales assistant came up to me and complimented me on my colour choice in clothes!!!! I told her I had had a consultation the day before.”

Hair characteristics such as fine hair, hair loss, and greying hair are often sensitive areas for women (and men for that matter), and you will find practical options in this book.
The topic of hair colour will be covered—in its full purple rinse glory—from the basics of colour to how to fix your hair if your do-it-yourself home colour kit didn’t work out, and you are now a gorgeous shade of orange or khaki green.

There is no doubt that putting a book like this together is a project of passion, a labour of love, and the result of many years of Penny and Angela looking after their clients.
Penny and Angela have put this book together with all the advice about hair styles, hair colour, and face shapes they share every day with their clients.
