Fyona Bassett image consultant and personal stylist for Macclesfield/Bramhall/Wilmslow/Congleton
Are you bored by your wardrobe?
Do you feel invisible or frumpy in your clothes?
Have you given up on achieving the look you've always wanted?
If you can relate to any of these, I'm thrilled you've found me because, frankly, life is just too short!
As a working mum over the course of my thirties I had pretty much wandered into a style snooze-zone - lost in black and beige. I could never quite pull off the look I wanted and often bought clothes on impulse because they looked good on other people. I went to work in the styles I thought I needed to wear and, although I was successful, I never really felt like myself.
Recognising that I was the only one who could do something about it and with a 'big' birthday looming, I booked onto a local House of Colour session. I know this sounds dramatic but, it completely transformed the way I looked and how I felt about myself. I was suddenly visible again and started getting more compliments than I'd had since my early twenties! I was so impressed with the results that I went on to attend a Developing Style Class. This was when I finally understood how to put together the right shapes and personality of clothes to reflect who I am. Now, all the colours in my wardrobe work together and they all work with me. I no longer have panic attacks about what to wear and know exactly what to buy, which saves me money.
I consider myself so lucky to be able to share my passion for colour and style with my clients. Already a Change and Life Coach, I trained as a House of Colour Style Consultant in 2009 and own the franchise for Bramhall, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, Macclesfield and Congleton. I have been a Professional Excellence Assessor for the company for 3 years and am delighted to have recently welcomed a new member, Kate Hughes to the team in May 2018.
I run Colour, Make-Up and Personal Style sessions for men and women just like you, who deserve to look and feel their very best. So whether you're looking to improve your personal branding at work or simply want to escape a style rut, read on to find out how easy it is to get back on track.
I have a House of Colour Bramhall facebook page, which is full of tips and hints on 'all things style' and news about upcoming events. Why not visit my page and 'like' it to receive regular updates, find out more or simply to hear from clients who've taken the plunge. www.facebook.com/HouseofColourBramhall

All my sessions are run from my busy Style Cube in the heart of Bramhall Village. Classes are small and informal and you can come along on your own, or with a friend. Please see the web site for details of my class dates. Don't worry if you don't see a date you can make - email me for more date options or check out Kate's page.
Colour Sessions: This is where your transformation begins! Discover the colours that work with your own unique skin tone and eye colour and take the first steps to making your wardrobe work for you. Identify which colours give you the 'visibility factor' and take away a work book and leather wallet containing your own spectrum of colours. During the women's class we also look at your best lipcolours, foundations and blushers. Shopping becomes so much easier!
Make-up class: A practical session to learn the techniques to achieve perfect skin and natural makeup! Three hours of pampering that will leave you informed, well groomed and feeling fantastic.
Personal Style day: Find out how to choose the best styles and shapes for you, based on your body shape and clothing personality, what to look for when shopping and how to pick clothes every time which you will love to wear.

"Thank you SO much for the colour analysis session last week. It was a revelation - fabulous fun and incredibly informative in equal measures! Quite honestly, our session has reignited my enjoyment for clothes and make-up shopping (rather than leaving me feeling slightly despondent as it might have done previously). Not only have I used my newly acquired knowledge about 'my colours' to shop for a new outfit for an important event, I've also tweaked my hair and make-up too. Plus, how useful is the swatch wallet?? I've been able to zone in on choices that will work for my look much more confidently - so efficient and helpful. Needless to say, I've already recommended your services to friends and family. Thanks Fyona!"

"Thank you for the fantastic colour day on Saturday. I had such an enjoyable time learning how to bring out the best in my appearance using colour. A well meaning friend bought me a makeup session with a different colour analysis company about 10 years ago but it was nothing compared to my session with you. The proof is - I have worn my make-up every day since Saturday and have received SO MANY compliments! I've purged my wardrobe too and am now wearing blue, grey, coral and green (no black!)"
"Simply can't speak highly enough of Fyona! She made sure that all attendees enjoyed their own analysis and everyone else's. Top Marks! Will book further."

"Wow - what a fabulous journey. It has given me the confidence to be myself"
"Thank you so much for your generous time, expertise and advice today - I'm buzzing with everything I've learned and excited at the prospect of putting it all into practice - starting tomorrow!"

"What a wonderful day - such a personal and professional touch! Looking forward to editing our wardrobes - thanks so much."
"Hi Fyona, thank you for yesterday, I really enjoyed our session. I have taken a lot away from it and am looking forward to some shopping trips!"
"Absolutely fantastic day. Wish I'd come years ago. Thank you so much."
"I just wanted to say thank you for your time on Saturday. It was lots of fun and such an eye opener. We're all excited about choosing the right colours to make us look the best we can going forwards."
"Just a note to say how much I enjoyed yesterday. You were so generous with your time and so patient too. It was so interesting and I really found it fascinating. Having another client there too , with such a different colour scheme,made it all the more fun and it was lovely to have her company...Thank you again Fyona, it was a much needed trip back to some fun and gave me a real confidence boost."
