Helen Smith image consultant and personal stylist for Milton Keynes/ Bedford West
Do you feel uninspired by the clothes in your wardrobe or is it time for a change?
Before my Colour and Style consultations, I wore primarily dark colours and I’d lost my confidence to wear different colours. I worked in a corporate career and gravitated to “safe” black, grey and navy and was constantly asked if I was Ok, I got comments like “you look tired” so I knew something needed to change.
I was delighted and a little nervous to discover that I'm a Paintbox Spring and my best colours are light bright warm colours, the opposite of what I had been wearing! So I got rid of the drab and embraced colour. For the first time in years I looked really healthy, brighter, younger and alive rather than the pale tired face I usually saw in the mirror every morning. It was an enormous boost to my confidence and I have never looked back.
Hi I’m Helen Smith, your Colour and Personal Stylist based in Lavendon, Nr Olney.
My journey with House of Colour started 17 years ago and completely changed my life. It gave me the self-belief to leave my corporate career and do something that I really love. Now 14 years on I firmly believe that the way we feel about ourselves has a massive impact on our lives, careers and how people perceive us. I see first-hand the positive impact colour and style has on my clients. I feel privileged being able to help others to look great, feel confident and achieve their goals. I take my clients on an amazing journey that changes how they look and feel, for life. It's never too early or late to invest in finding your own personal style, it will save you time, money and stress and the results will make you shine. It's amazing what we can achieve when we feel good about ourselves.
I am very grateful that most of my business comes from existing clients recommending me to their family, friends and work colleagues . My experience includes working with a wide range of business and personal clients of all ages, so you will be in very safe and professional hands. I pride myself in making sure my sessions are incredibly supportive, confidence building with laughter and fun. My aim is to leave you inspired to make changes, invest wisely and know how to make the right colour and style choices for you. I'll show you how to create your unique capsule wardrobe that doesn't need to cost a fortune. You will quickly recoup your investment as shopping mistakes are a thing of the past.

Thank you so much for a truly inspiring colour session, my friend had raved about it but until I saw the difference for myself I really didn’t know what to expect. I started wearing my summer colours with my lipstick immediately, this is probably the most impactful change I’ve made so far. I’ve had a few colleagues tell me that I look extremely relaxed after my vacation, while others (closer to me asked) what have I done. I tell anybody that will be remotely interested about it. I’m keen to do my style session very soon.
