I specialise in helping you discover the clothes that give you a real buzz. The ones that make you look in the mirror and think 'Yes!' - whether that's going to the supermarket, or out to a big event.


Maybe you feel as though youve lost your identity after having had a family, or through difficult life events.

Maybe you're bored of your wardrobe, of feeling drab and wasting money on yet more that'll do...

In need of a reboot?


I specialise in helping you discover the clothes that give you a real buzz. The ones that make you look in the mirror and think Yes, looking good! - whether thats going to the supermarket, or out to a big event.

You will understand whats right, what isnt (and why!) where those boundaries are so that your style is clearer and more importantly allows you to feel great as you.

In your first session youll understand what colours that make your skin glow, which make up colours seamlessly work with your skin tone and how to make your wardrobe far more efficient in the process. Less time spent debating what colour might go with what.

In your second session youll discover the clothes that light you up as an individual. You'll find the styles, types of clothing and understand your own bodys proportions so that you can flatter your unique shape.

Not only does this allow you to feel truly great, confident in your clothes but it means you spend less time debating whether clothes work or not, less money wasted on repeat buying or on clothes you never wear.

Years after completing my own sessions it still gives me a huge buzz. I truly love my clothes and nothing beats the feeling of putting something on and thinking yep this is me. Love it, you can too.

The Colour Consultation

This is the detail around which you understand exactly which colours light you up, inside and out. The right colour can make you look healthy and glowing no matter how well or tired you are. In this in-depth session we go into detail as to what exact shades really work for you. You'll also discover which make up colours including your perfect shade of red lipstick make your eyes sparkle and skin tone even in our 90 second make up routine. Make up in the right colours makes a huge impact. You receive a fan swatch with all your colours and a booklet with guidance on how to wear them. No more living in blacks and greys but enjoying whole range of colours that suit you, from more neutral tones to more vibrant ones, you can choose how bright you are. To book check out the bookings section on my page for dates and times.

The Personal Style Session

What styles, shapes of clothes really reflect you, making you feel and look good? It can be hard to decide on your own what actually works on you. This session looks at your body shape and most importantly your personality, so you understand what types of clothes reflect you, the person on the inside. Its the person on the inside that needs to be connected for us to actually love what we wear. Find out once and for all what really works for you, how long, how short, what patterns are best on you, what size and type of jewellery suits you, what necklines are the most flattering. Is it a bold pattern or a small and rounded one? This is your opportunity to discuss any style concerns and find those answers. Youll receive lots of information, visuals, and guidance to be able to create your own look. Youll also receive exclusive access to the MyHOCLookBook app to be able to keep your reference information with you on the go. Fashion is ever changing and so are we. I want you to be able to confidently pick up on the trends that are going to suit you so well review the HOC Fashion Update together to understand this.

Enjoy your capsule wardrobe, get dressed without thinking about it and always have something to wear. You'll never look back. To see more and book a class look at the booking section.

Services

Find your most flattering colours with colour analysis, your best look with style consultation, personal shopping and wardrobe reviews

Transform getting dressed everyday into an effortless and joyful experience with our life-changing colour analysis.

Through precision-dyed drapes and my expert training, I provide you with invaluable insights of knowing your season; a palette of colours customised to your unique undertones. Our approach is inclusive, serving people of all ages, races, ethnicities, and genders, ensuring that your season remains a timeless guide throughout your life.

Experience the three essential components of our colour sessions:

First is our world-class, scientific draping process that we have refined for excellence and accuracy over the past four decades. Next, I will provide advice on jewellery, watches, glasses, and, when applicable, hair and makeup based on your season. Our makeup eliminates the guesswork, enhancing your natural beauty with colours perfectly suited to you. Finally, we’ll dive further into your season as we identify the best colours for both your casual and professional life, uncovering your collection of WOW colours.

You will leave your appointment equipped with a fan of your seasonal swatches and a tailored brochure filled with personalised tips and reminders specific to you, empowering you to confidently shop for and wear your new colours!

For optimal accuracy, arrive at your analysis without spray tans or makeup. Your privacy is paramount, so no photos will be taken or shared on social media without your consent.

Are you bored of looking at a wardrobe full of dark clothes?

Would you like to wear some different colours but you’re concerned you might get it wrong?

Are you overwhelmed by the options at the make up counter and end up buying the same thing repeatedly?

Is your hair colour changing and you’re not sure what the right colour should be?

Have you noticed changes to your skintone, even redness appearing?

What is it?

A colour analysis consultation is a robust way to really understand exactly what colours will work with your individual skintone, reducing redness and evening out your skintone, making you look healthy and well.

You will discover a whole range of colours, a complete palette that all work together, with each other. Less time spent debating if this colour goes with that or worrying whether the colour will suit you. As part of this you will understand the brights, the neutrals, the subtle tones that you have available to you making your wardrobe interesting and different. There is a red, a green, a purple etc., that works for you. You never miss out.

You will also understand what hair shades will work for you now and in the future.

We look at a basic make up routine so you understand all the make up colours that work for you and how to apply them professionally.

How does it work?

Sitting in natural daylight, using a thorough and robust methodology we look at how different colours under your chin influence your skin and the way it looks.  From this we can determine exactly which colours are the most flattering, as we see redness and blemishes minimised, and a healthy natural glow appear.

Once we know the range of colours that work we can then look at the best way to add impact, through make up. We develop an easy routine that maximises your natural skin’s colouring to enhance your glow, using the colours we have identified in our own make up range designed exclusively for us so you know you’re getting the right shades. You look healthy and well as a result!

You receive a fan with precision dyed colours giving you an easy reference tool when  in the shops or looking at your wardrobe.  We also provide an advice booklet with handy information on colour and how to use it in your wardrobe to remind you of what we’ve discovered, how to build colour into your wardrobe and what you need to look for.

 

The session usually lasts approx. 2.5hrs or so and is completed in daytime to maximise the light.

What’s included:

A fan of precision dyed colours for you to use and refer to.

An advice booklet – an easy reference guide on how to use your new palette

Access to our online MyHOCLookbook portal for reference to your colours in your phone and with the ability to shop real clothes in the right colours. This includes fresh collections twice a year to keep you contemporary. You can also upload your own wardrobe so you can refer to what you have and increase your wardrobe’s efficiency.

Your reference guide to your make up collection which suits your specific skintone.

Imagine a beautiful wardrobe with colours and clothes that bring you joy.  Imagine knowing exactly what shades really suit you.

Are you ready to open a wardrobe full of joy?  Are you ready to confidently select colours that actually suit you and put them together?

Discover the science and psychology behind personal style by unlocking the power of you. During a style analysis, I'll empower you to seamlessly combine your inner self with your outward appearance, so you can step out into the world radiating confidence as your authentic self.

We consider your proportions, personality, and preferences to give you a style framework - we call this a “Clothing Personality."

You will confidently know which fabrics, prints, patterns, accessories, necklines, details, and silhouettes flatter your unique body architecture best. By integrating your personality into this framework, our style analysis transcends mere fashion guidance, going a step further to help you identify how you feel in different styles and pieces, ensuring that your wardrobe not only reflects your style but also represents your individuality.

For this appointment, you’ll bring 5–10 items from your closet that you LOVE and 5–10 that make you wonder why you don’t feel good when putting them on. Together, we’ll use this information to help you discover why you gravitated toward and loved certain pieces and what it is about the others that weren’t working for you, saving you time and money in the future! At House of Colour, we believe clothing needs to be adjusted to you, not the other way around. It is our goal to make sure you feel your most confident as who you are and how you look right now.

You’ll leave with a book with detailed information specific to you that we’ll fill out during the appointment and a Clothing Personality card with keywords that will help guide you when shopping. If you’ve already had a colour analysis, this card can be inserted into your fan which will make shopping easy and efficient!

Do you struggle to find the right outfits for occasions?

Do you go shopping to find something more interesting and end up not wearing it? Bored of wearing the same things?

Has your body shape changed and you’re not sure what works anymore?

Do you look at colleagues and feel like you’re not holding your own style-wise?

Is your wardrobe spilling out into different rooms in your house?

A style consultation is your gateway to understanding what suits you. We look at your personality, because when we understand the person on the inside we can then dress the person on the outside. You become a confident dresser who knows what she needs.

We look in detail at your body shape (not size) to discover exactly what lengths, necklines, trouser types etc. you need to be most flattering on you. You also come away understanding exactly the types of accessories that you need, style, shape, even size that will highlight your best features and reflect who you are.

We look at what your lifestyle needs are and how to manage your wardrobe so your clothes are supporting your life. No more need to keep clothes ‘just in case’ but time to reclaim your time and space back.

We look at how to add impact to your look so you know how to hold your space in the room, add your own wow effect, in all areas of your life. Contemporary looks and styles are also covered so you keep current.

With this knowledge you will easily be able to pull outfits together, make confident choices in shops and know what works for you on any occasion.

I've had so many compliments since having my colours done. At least once every day, someone has said how great I look. And most importantly, I've felt good most of the time too. I sorted my wardrobe and went shopping last Friday to get a few items to work with what I had, never imagined buying so much coral, red and bright blues! Or switching to gold jewellery! Thanks for getting me there!

I’ve also been meaning so say that I’ve been so pleased with all of the things you chose last time! I’ve had so many compliments on the jacket and I really love wearing it. I felt it would be outside my comfort zone and I’d feel awkward in it but that’s not been the case at all - you got it just right. It’s made me feel a lot more confident when I put it on. It’s also never been so easy to put outfits together - I barely have to think at the weekend, just pick one of the tops, put my trousers on and jacket over the top. You really are very talented!
