Meet our Personal Stylists
Style With Cindy led by Style Director and Course Facilitator Cindy Newstead, is a pioneer of the personal styling industry who has been styling clients and facilitating styling courses across Australia for more than 20 years. Style with Cindy is the official Stylist for Chadstone The Fashion Capital and The Glen shopping centre, with elite certified personal stylists working under her leadership Australia wide.
Always regarded at the forefront of the industry, in 2016 Style With Cindy opened the first and only privately owned Styling Suite within a major shopping centre at Chadstone The Fashion Capital. The premiere Styling Suite at Chadstone the Fashion Capital is the hub of Australia’s foremost personal stylists and makeover experts, where we offer a range of affordable personal shopping, wardrobe makeovers, image consulting and colour analysis services that will suit your budget and goals.
Style with Cindy personal stylists work with clients to define their personal style and express themselves through their clothing in a way that best suits the image they wish to portray.
We show our clients how to use clothing to their advantage to enhance their body shape and feel confident about their appearance in every situation. Our personal stylists have an incredible ability to guide our clients on their style journey that saves them time and money by choosing the perfect pieces for their budget, lifestyle and personality.
With clients ranging from their teens to their eighties and with careers as diverse as stay at home Mum’s to Lawyers to entertainers to farmers to corporate business managers, we understand that everyone is different and to cater for this our stylists are trained to give all our clients the individual look and style that suits their personality, body shape, colours, lifestyle and age.
We are independent and are not aligned with any labels, we only shop at stores that suit the client’s style, body shape, age and budget. For our Personal Shopping service, we have negotiated discounts with many stores that are passed onto our clients and in many cases the savings alone from the client’s purchases exceeds the cost of our services.

A long-standing interest and enthusiasm for fashion and desire to help women build self-image and confidence led Jennifer to embark on her journey as a personal stylist. After impressing Cindy in both the Professional Styling Academy stylist training course and Advanced Certification, Jennifer was invited to join the Style With Cindy team as a stylist. Not only is Jennifer an in-demand stylist, but her previous experience in the makeup industry paved the way for Jennifer to become the make-up artist for the Style With Cindy’s mineral makeup brand, Femme La Vie.
Jennifer’s main goal with her clients is that they embrace themselves and come away with confidence in how they appear. Understanding how body shapes and features play into clothing choices enables Jennifer to help clients discover styles that are perfect just for them! Her favourite part of working with a client is when light bulb moments happen, the client sees what she sees, and they can take the lessons learned during their session away with them and use this knowledge going forward.
Jennifer “walks the talk” of embracing change at any age or stage and sharing this is her greatest motivation for working in personal styling.’
