Alex Fownes image consultant and personal stylist for Pittsburgh

I believe that there is potential inside every person that they’re not giving themselves permission to live up to. I believe insecurities about how we look and feel can hold us back from going after what we really want in life. My experience with House of Colour gave me the permission and confidence to be myself and chase my dreams instead of living up to someone else’s expectations. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of a team of professionals who get the privilege of empowering people. Through color analysis, I help my clients create a positive self image and give them the tools to shop cost effectively and for clothes that will make them look and feel great no matter the occasion.

Using a 30 year old process rooted in the scientific color research of Johannes Itten, and precision dyed drapes, I will be helping you discover the colors that flatter the natural you the best. You will learn how to be authentic and comfortable in your own skin; more than that I will help you celebrate it.

I promise to bring a compassionate, comfortable and professional experience to each and every one of my clients. You will leave color analysis refreshed, confident and motivated to love the skin you were made in. You will look at color as a way to express and embrace your natural features and I promise you will love the compliments you get!

Alex was the best. She was so kind and had a lot of great energy. She helped me realize my true colors and made me feel like I was hanging out with a long time friend. I really enjoyed trying the new makeup and helping me think of new outfit ideas and comparing it to thing I knew. It was awesome. Thank you!

Wonderful! Alex did a great job explaining the process. It was very surprising to see how much of a difference my “WOW colors” made.

The process of finding my colors was fun and informative. Alex explained everything well and made me feel so pretty. Even when we realized my original guess for my season was wrong she made me more confident as our appointment went on. Thanks for all of your help, I’m so glad I came.




Alex was fantastic and was very complimentary and made me feel beautiful even in summer colors! She was very informative and a delight to work with. I’m so excited to put what I’ve learned to use. Thanks for consistently being thoughtful and aware of my needs!




I would definitely recommend Alex for doing a great job of mixing and matching all my colors. She was very professional and encouraging on what would look good on for my makeup, hair color, wardrobe and accessories. Since revealing to me all of the options available to me and showing me how to mix and match, it’s going to make my clothes and makeup shopping so much easier. I would recommend Alex to all those who have not been able to see what colors can really do for someone’s self image.

My experience was very personable and professional. I left feeling inspired and motivated to try new colors. I really enjoyed the “better than black” options, especially for pants and shoes! Alex did great. She was very detailed. Not only did we discuss what colors looked best, but she gave me ideas on what piece of clothing would look best.
