Meet the Stylists
Stylist & Managing Director
Susie created Styled By Susie in 2012 after noticing a gap in the market for styling on a high street budget. Susie is a registered Style Coach TM, and qualified in 2011. She is a Mum to a 6 year old boy and understands the pressure of feeling and looking good, when most of the time you feel tired and jaded!
Susie wanted to bring personal styling into every woman's life, as she believes it's a service that shouldn't be limited to the rich and famous. All of the Styled By Susie advice is based on high street stores and prices, and we believe in dressing for style, not fashion.
Susie's personal style is edgy, with plenty of fun accessories, pops of leopard print, and a pair of trusty Dr Marten's! Her approach is fun, relaxed, yet sensitive and informative.

Mhairi has a long standing passion for sewing, crafting and creating handmade fashion items.
In early 2018 she discovered Styled By Susie and immediately purchased an analysis. She couldn't believe what she got back and the difference it made to her and her life. She decided to travel from Scotland down for a personal shop with Susie in March 2019 for her 30th birthday, determined her 30s was going to be the turning point of not dressing for other people and having fun again with fashion.
Susie and Mhairi hit it off right away and even joked about Mhairi being the Scottish branch of Styled by Susie. She then went on to train with London College of style in Personal Styling and Colour Analysis and qualified in both subjects in September 2019 before traveling down to work closely with Susie for a week in January 2020 and starting personal shops in February.
Mhairi's style personality is edgy with a hint of retro and vintage. She loves a bright lippy and won't ever be seen without a pair of statement earrings in!
