Pause magazine’s 10 styling kit essentials is THE LIST if you want to be a stylist. Knocking together an outfit is certainly a skill, but turn up to a job where you’re charging £200 and up a day, you’ll need these things in your arsenal!

1 – Bag! You need yourself a bag. Whether it’s this bag or another, you’ll need a bag. Two hands and a Sainsbury’s bag for life just won’t cut it.

3 – Sewing kit. Is your nana proud of you? Could you sew up a dodgy hemline? If not, maybe get on YouTube and find out how now?

4 – Tape! Oh you glorious piece of plastic and glue, how you solve our life sometimes.

5 – Wipes! Some annoying model got fake tan on your MIH Baby Blue Lebrun Jacket? CURSES! Time to get your wipe on.

 

6 – A notepad and pen! Typing things into your iPhone 6s just won’t cut it I’m afraid. Pull out some fancy stationary and they’ll know you’re the business. Two week campaign in Barbados job on the horizon?

 

7 – Pop-Ons. Erm. Good photo! Great idea if you don’t want to deal with an angry PR firm when you return something back with red lipstick on!

 

8 – Lint roller! Nobody loves your cat or the models cat, especially this brand.
