When did you start JJ Styling?
I wanted to spend a few months at home with my parents. So while I was in Dubai in 2015, I came across this course by Michelle Sterling of the Sterling Style Academy. She goes to Milan, Paris, Dubai, etc. to train people to become personal stylists. Since I was in Dubai at the same time, I enrolled for the class. I got certified as a stylist. I came back to Cochin and contacted some photographers and the ball just started rolling! It’s been a year-and-a-half since I’ve been styling people.
