Annabel Czyba image consultant and personal stylist for Swindon
I love giving women (and men) confidence. The confidence to know how great they are and how amazing they look.
We all seem to lead such crazy-busy lives that it’s easy to get stuck in a rut or to lose our sense of identity. The beauty of what I do is that it frees my clients from that rut giving them permission to be who they are, with a wardrobe that speaks their language. It encourages them to be the best they can possibly be and that’s a wonderful thing to be a part of.
When I was younger, I wanted to be a dancer but fate stepped in and my career took a different turn - I ended up on the catwalk as a model. It was during that time that my love of style was born.
Fast forward a few years to a chance meeting with an old friend. She looked amazing and, over coffee, excitedly spilled the beans about the colour analysis and personal style session that had transformed her life. To cut a very long story short, I booked a session with House of Colour and, after having my own life-changing ‘wow this is what I want to do’ moment, became a colour consultant.
So, what to expect from a consultation with me? Well, for starters, I am approachable, down-to-earth and easy to get along with. My work-studio is at my home and reflects my love of colour and home-comforts. It is a welcoming space designed to make my clients feel happy and relaxed during their visit.
I have masses of life experience; I’ve been there, done it and got several t-shirts (in my colours, obviously!). I guess what I’m trying to say, is that I’m human.
I bring all that life experience to my colour consultations making them, as one client so eloquently put it, ‘a life-affirming therapy session’. My clients arrive with no makeup and soon discover, via a magical moment of revelation, the colours that suit them.
In addition to the colour consultation and make up advice (never underestimate the power of the perfect lippy), I offer ‘Style Days’ which put the icing on the cake. It’s where my clients find out who they truly are, which styles suit them best and how the right accessories can lift an outfit from good, to fabulous.
Style is something that never dates and being able to show people how amazing they look is something I will never tire of.
So, how does it work, I hear you ask? Well, if you’re into social media you can take a look at my House of Colour, Swindon, Facebook page and/or my Instagram feed @Annabel_Czyba. This will give you a feel for what’s involved and show a range of before and after photographs (posted with the client’s permission, of course) that illustrate how wonderfully transformative the experience is.
Then, if you wish, you can call me on 01793 814276 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to have a chat and/or book. I look forward to hearing from you.
