If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll already know that I have been appointed as a Beauty Consultant for Chanel.
This is a very exciting opportunity indeed and one I’m really looking forward to. As most of you will agree, Chanel is one of those brands that ooze style, class and sophistication. I have been in love with this luxurious brand since I was a little girl and to be be able to work with them at such close quarters is truly something else. It’s truly a dream come true!
With the festive season upon us, it’s the perfect time to start. I always believe that when you’re put in the deep end, you end up learning so much more. With the flurry of customers, seeking advice, recommendations, and assistance, you really need to be on top of your knowledge game. I have had a fabulous week so far and can’t wait to see more happy faces leaving the counter content that they’ve made the right choice.
So, would you like to know what it’s like to work for Chanel? Firstly, let me tell you it’s no easy task. You really need to know your stuff inside out. With so many in depth interviews, there’s no easy way out. I did hear Chanel are very particular when it comes to selection. Every word, posture and behaviour is being judged. It really is nerve-wrecking but I guess they need to make sure they select the right candidate to represent their brand. Ok, I’m making it sound so dramatic, it’s nothing as such but nonetheless you really need to know the brand and products quite well. So get researching girls!
You need to do a lot of research into the products, know your history and most importantly be able to connect with the clients. I always say, be yourself in interviews. Employers love it when they can see your personality, so always smile, be polite but most importantly be your true self. That’s your USP which makes you special!
The dress code is all black outfit – smart and stylish. You have to have your hair tied up (preferably in a bun). Gosh, I did find this to be tough as my hair never stays put in a bun. I remember watching numerous YouTube videos on how to make hair buns.. even with a million bobby pins, they would fall out during the day. I’m much better now, so I say! Ahh why must you do this Chanel?! 🙄
Did you know – Chanel no 5 perfume has been the best selling perfume of all time. It seems that the scent is as popular with the millions of other women.
In fact actress Marilyn Monroe once quipped: ‘What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5 of course.’
Chanel No 5
Arguably the world’s most iconic perfume, Chanel No 5 has held the beauty industry’s attention since its creation in 1921. Named after the number of the sample presented to Coco Chanel by perfumer Ernest Beaux, the fragrance is made up of jasmine, rose, sandalwood and vanilla. The scent is instantly recognisable and the formula used to produce it has changed little since its creation.
As I’ve only recently started with the brand, there’s lots more to learn. However, I will be sharing a lot more of Chanel insider tips and tricks on my blog. If you have any questions or queries, then do let me know below. I’ll try my very best to answer them.
Wishing you all happy holidays and a very Happy New Year 2019! 🎉
Until next time,
