Don’t worry, you won’t have to throw out all your clothes and make-up. We can help you make small changes to look and feel amazing with what you already have. What’s more, we’ll never tell you what to do. Learning at your own pace, you’ll gain life-changing colour expertise that gives you confidence from the outside in.  Then follow up with the other part of the jigsaw……

How to dress well


Have you ever stood in front of your packed wardrobe thinking "I’ve nothing to wear"? Do you waste countless hours shopping for clothes, worrying that the latest fashion isn’t really... you?


In just one stress-free, enjoyable day House of Colour can stop you feeling lost and confused about your wardrobe. You'll leave with the confident, life-changing ability to know exactly which clothes make you look fabulous - just you, the person you are now.

Ideally, you'll be building on the revelation of HoC colour analysis. But this class is an eye-opener on its own. Here's what you’ll learn:

  • Your own personal style. The shapes that flatter your body, affordable styles that capture your personality. After all, none of us are supermodels and we all have a clothes budget.
  • You’ll learn the language of clothes - the confident ability to express your individuality and send the right messages through a range of styles and looks.
  • Creating a capsule wardrobe. Effortless style, fewer clothes. Getting dressed in the morning will be a joy.
  • How to spend wisely. Never again will you waste money on that ill-advised "bargain".
  • The secrets of buying and wearing accessories. Using key pieces to make a style statement that’s entirely your own.

House of Colour personal styling classes take place all over the UK. They’re small, friendly and very relaxed. And they’re run by the most thoroughly trained, highly qualified personal stylists in the country.

Managing Director

"Imagine if people you've never met before say, 'You look amazing', or, 'Wow, life’s going well for you!' If these things come from complete strangers, they change what you feel about yourself on the inside. It’s incredibly powerful."

Helen had her colours done soon after her third son was born. She was feeling exhausted and very low. Yet within a decade she'd become a personal stylist, trainer and Managing Director of the whole company. "It's rewarding, life enhancing and very exciting!"

"In the Cornish, Methodist farming community where I grew up, you kept your best clothes for Sundays. And as for make-up, it was for 'tarts and ugly people!'" For Jackie, it's been a revelation. Since she trained as a personal stylist in 2002, she's built a successful business, become a coach, public speaker and Director. "But, I'm only 'a farmer's daughter'. It's only 'little old me'. I had no clue whether I'd be good at it." As for make-up and wearing 'best' to work, have a peek at Jackie in action.

"I was busy being Corporate Woman. Then the light bulb went on." Diana Blakeman had worked in finance for 30 years. Then she went to a House of Colour talk about professional image. "It was amazing. After it was over, I went up to the stylist and said, 'I'd love to do your job'. She said two words, 'You can'." Twelve years on, Diana is still delighted with her decision. When she's not seeing clients or sitting on the board, she's stopping the traffic in her favourite shade of turquoise!
