We at House of Colour are following the Government's advice to stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading.
hi Jan. Just a quick note to let you know that the compliments are coming in thick and fast, I am loving it. I have removed all of the black and white from my wardrobe. I have dyed most of the white a baby blue or a baby pink. I had a disaster with green dye, so won't be trying that again!
I have had my hair taken back to its natural (almost) colour and am very happy with the result. I didn't realise just how dark I was having it coloured. I was working in Liverpool a few weeks ago with a colleague that I have not seen for at least 18 months. On the 3rd day, over breakfast she said 'so what is it Sarah, have you had cosmetic surgery? You look so good. So confident. You must have had something done!' I took it as a massive compliment and told her that what I had had done was not nearly as drastic as surgery and a damn sight more fun:).
Jan really changed my outlook on Colours for the better.I now wear colours with confidence that I wouldn't have dreamt of wearing before and feel really positive. I would hghly recommend everyone should have their colours done and the sooner done the sooner you save money buying clothes that just don't do anything for you! It isn't just a 'fashion thing' dressing with confidence can have such a positive influence on how you feel and how you are perceived both in yourwork and personal life. An absolute must in my view.
A Mans' point of view.
Knowing which colours suit me, and which don't, has saved me a lot of wasted time/effort and money when shopping for clothes.
Recently a sales assistant told me how good it was to see a man buying brightly coloured clothes - so I'm not only better off I am brighter too!
Great to hear from a man. Thank you.
You won’t remember me after 3 or 4 years but I amused you by saying that I didn’t like shimmer eyeshadow because I don’t need twinkles on my wrinkles!!
I arrived for the workshop with Jan wearing fuchsia pink having worn this colour for years! I remember being stunned by the contrast when a colour is right and when it is mediocre/awful but I also grew increasingly depressed as the colour spectrum showed that I am an Autumn. Jan was so encouraging and positive in picking the colours from Autumn which are perfect for me.
I went home and dyed everything I could, kept the pink (just in case) and started buying my Autumn colours. It wasn’t long before the charity shops were given a lot of pink and now when I open my wardrobe it is full of oranges, golds, turquoise and greens which look super together and fantastic on me. It was the best investment having my colours done and saves hours of times when shopping. A great big thank you! Leila from South Devon
“My husband was the first to get his colours done with Jan and he was so pleased that he arranged for me to see Jan as a birthday present. It was a bit of a shock when I realised 80% of my wardrobe had to be ditched as my clothes were all the wrong colour, but the comments and compliments from friends more than made up for the loss of my wardrobe and I have never looked back. Wearing the right colours not only boosted my confidence bur has made shopping so much easier. I can now write off 80% of clothes within 30 seconds of entering a shop - thank you Jan!”

I joined one of Jan Beveridge's House of Colour classes around 5 years ago and it has been one of the best investments I have ever made.
Jan is approachable, friendly, an excellent hostess and is enthusiastic and passionate about her work. I feel that my ability to choose the right colours that really suit me has improved no end and I am confidently wearing colours I would not have considered in the past. I have gained a lot of confidence since getting to know Jan and it continues to be an ongoing process. I know Jan is available to help and advise if I get into difficulties choosing the right outfit/colour combinations. I can recommend her highly.
I saw the self confidence and deep appreciation of my self grow and is almost unshakeable.
My Advanced Colour day was fabulous. I now know which combinations of my winter colours work best for me. I took a case full of my clothes. They were not my favourite items but I chose them for their variety of colours. Jan created me several new outfits by mixing my items up and creating the wow factor for me. Not only that but I got to wear the best colour lipstick for each combination. I have been working in London this week and on day one I wore 2 of my reds together (I have never ever worn 2 different reds at the same time) and on day two I wore purple and pink together (another never ever before)!!! I would have not have had the courage to wear these looks without Jan’s wonderful support and encouragement. I look forward every day to putting my outfits together and experimenting using my new knowledge.
I recommend this day to anyone who has already had their colour day.
Thank you Jan.
Jan was patient,very knowledgeable and provided an inspiring session in an empathatic,supportive manner.
