Ink & Lace Introducing….PSA


We are in 2016, so maybe a new wardrobe a new style is a good approach to start the year!

We at Ink & Lace like to introduce brands that are unique and beautiful… and so is PSA! You ask what PSA is…. ? Well PSA stands for Professional Style Academy.

Please meet Cindy Newstead.

1 Please introduce yourself/ company…. 

PSA doesn’t just teach you how to be a good stylist but ensures you will become an exceptional stylist. The head facilitator and director is one of the industry’s most successful and prolific personal stylists. Cindy Newstead has carried out over 6,500 personal consultations and is known as one of the early pioneers to bring personal fashion styling services to the everyday person.

Cindy Newstead
Cindy still actively works in her very successful independent style consultancy, Style with Cindy, She is out in the trenches consulting with 10 to 12 private clients a week, holds workshops, styles and runs fashion runways and as head stylist she guides her team of stylists everyday. This ensures you get relevant, proven strategies and techniques that work in the real world.
Cindy is the creator and presenter of Style Review runway, a Chadstone – The Fashion Capital’s ‘A’ list stylist, she is a published author of the book “You Are More Than Just Your Bits”which helps people through their style challenges and the emotional issues that surround our appearance. She is also a keynote speaker, styles celebrities, numerous media appearances and has trained and mentored hundreds of successful stylists. Early in her career Cindy trained and worked with style and image professionals around the world, has studied and is certified with two different colour systems and is an NLP Master Practitioner.
Having access to someone with this level of success and knowledge is invaluable.
PSA was launched in 2012, prompted by an industry that was becoming saturated with self-accredited, unprepared and inexperienced stylists.
The growing feedback Cindy received from store managers and sales staff about the increase of new stylists with poor skills was the driving force behind Cindy offering to impart all of her knowledge to help change this. It is her vision that with this academy, she wants to teach and inspire the next generation of stylists worldwide to ensure the integrity and growth of the industry and most importantly to ensure the delivery of this very beneficial and life changing service to the general public is at the highest level.

Lace…. How do you see it from your professional point of view?
 Lace does not date, it’s timeless, feminine and most females wear it at some stage in their life. Lace is so versatile!
What are the DOs and DONTs when it comes to lace?
These days lace is very popular so it can be worn all over or in separates as tops and bottoms.
Do’s and Don’ts
  • Wear a cami or slip underneath
  • avoid jewellery or hand bags that may catch on the lace
  • wear lace under a sheer blouse to add texture and interest
  • Lace can be worn casually or dressed up formally
  • mix lace with denim
  • white lace on white lace is extremely elegant
  • keep accessories simple
  • a midi skirt/dress in lace in very on trend
 Do you think lace lost it;s glory or status?
I think lace is like most fabrics, it trends in and out of fashion. There are always people who will love lace and wear it no matter what the trend
What makes lace in Queensland so popular?
Queenslanders love lace as it’s light if worn with a thin slip underneath. Also this is lovely on the upper body for women with upper arms issue as it provides a lightweight cover.
What do you think about the new trend of wearing lace with sports wear?
Interesting – personally I don’t love it but it does soften the look of sportswear for those who do like it.
Why is lace not for everybody?
I think everyone love a bit of lace – everyone won’t necessarily wear it though. This is mainly due to personal style. As this is a feminine look, this just won’t appeal to everyone to wear.
8. What do you think about lace accessories?
Lace accessories can be prettier on younger girls, especially in the hair! If a more mature lady is wearing a lace accessory, she needs to be very careful of what she teams it with so it doesn’t become tacky.
9. How can we find you online and what can we aspect when we book your service?
