Just had a House of Colour consultation with Julie and all I can say is...unbelievable! Which is actually what I repeated too many times to mention while I was there. I had no idea what to expect, I was just attracted to have it done because of how fabulous Julie looks and I thought she was a living, breathing advert for what she does.
In a few hours, my whole attitude to the colours I dress in and make up colours I choose has been changed. I knew I liked certain colours, some more than others, and now I know why they make me happy. What I wasn't prepared for was the way some colours made me look. I would never in a million years have chosen a raspberry pink, which is so pretty but not me...except it is me because I discovered I am Summer!
I was so impressed by Julie's knowledge and expertise, and the way she explained everything so well, not being surprised at all when I was completely gobsmacked by the colour choices! She put me at my ease and was just lovely. And she doesn't impose or tell you what to do, she is very encouraging and empowering.
The goody bag you get given at the end in just beautiful and I am now armed with the info and insight to go shopping and revamp my wardrobe and makeup bag with confidence.
I really wish I had done this years ago and one of the biggest compliments I can pay Julie is that she made me, a 57 year old who was really thinking that there was little I could do, feel really pretty.
– Liz Gordon
Julie welcomes you in with warmth and straight away you are at ease to sit and watch yourself be transformed with the colour scarfs and realise that some of your usual colour choices just don't do it for you, the colours you would not think to wear make you sparkle all before your eyes.
Julie's expertise as a consultant makes it easy to see the right colour that compliments your whole look. Now I know I'm a summer person I can't wait to go out and look for my next outfits. Booking up for make-up and style makeover. Can't wait best money spent. So glad I met Julie.
– Sandra Craig
Julie is an amazing person with lots of energy and warmth and it turns out she is a miracle worker with colour too! I've been buzzing ever since having the HOC consultation because suddenly it all makes sense ... I love the Summer palette and I'm thrilled that so many of my favourite colours are in there. I also feel more confident pairing up shades that I wouldn't have thought of before. I've already had lots of positive feedback from people and it's only been a week! Thanks so much Julie!
– Alison Brown
Wish I'd had my colours done years ago!!!! 😎Thank you Julie for the most amazing eye opening session yesterday in your colour studio.
I was blown away by the difference it made to have a House of Colour consultation. I'm already planning my new wardrobe. 10/10, i would definitely recommend it, it has been the best tonic, fab!.
– Maria Perry
At the weekend I had a transformation moment when I discovered my inner me. My personal colour palette should be Autumn , warm and mellow shades but I’ve been dressing to my character and those who know me will recognise this ( black, white, purple, red etc) Strong colours but now I’m very excited to relaunch my packaging starting with make up and going forward from there.
It was not only fun and informative but visually impressive so if you haven’t tried it I suggest you do and discover just how good you can look and the confidence and compliments you will receive.
– Janice Mackay
I had such an amazing morning with Julie. Having no idea what to do with regard to what colours suited me for clothes or make up, I now can be completely confident in my choices thanks to the whole process of the colour consultation. Its incredible. I wish I had done it years ago. Julie is professional, friendly and really good fun. Thanks so much Julie !!!
– Alice May
Fantastic session with Julie Bramah, fun, insightful, motivating giving me courage to embrace my personality more in clothing and to make an effort ! Inspired a non shopper to get out the very next day and compliments received since . Highly recommend to those unsure how to present themselves to the world !
– Hazel Todd
I cannot praise Julie highly enough. I have had an absolutely fantastic morning, full of surprises and totally self indulgent - fabulous! Julie is extremely talented and I strongly recommend you give it a go (including the non-believers). I wish I had done this 20 years ago - it's actually given me so many more colours to wear than I could have imagined... colours I have never dared go for but have always loved are now there for the taking. I also have some great new makeup that actually does something for me. Julie's home is a lovely environment to be in and of course Julie is just fab. I am over the moon and I feel like so much has changed today, a major boost to my confidence. Thank you Julie x
– Tracey Rickard
I had my first colour class with Julie today and I loved it!! it was great fun and learnt so much! I now know my colour season is summer and can't wait to put into practice everything Julie has tought me today. I highly recommend having a group class as it's a fun girly experience plus you get to learn a lot more seeing other people finding out what their colour palette is.
– Ana Ferrer Ruiz
I had the most amazing afternoon with Julie today - I learned so much and can’t wait to start making some changes - Julie is so nice and easy to talk to - and she makes great coffee - thank you and I will see you again soon x
– Harry Harris
Oh WOW!! Julie turned my perspective of myself/clothing upside down, in a great way! I have been getting amazing compliments since my consultations and feel so ALIVE in my colours. This is a must for every woman. Discover your vibrancy! Kettlewell (linked to the recommendations by Julie Bramah), made choosing my initial 'capsule closet' a breeze. YES, YES, and another YES from me!
– Wanda Grobler Nowak
"Julie is positively sparkling. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and her warm, caring, professional manner and keen eye quickly puts you at ease.
I'd had my colours done before, (not with HOC), but became intrigued when I read about seasonal sub-types on a Kettlewell blog, and wanted to know more. Julie has given me absolute confidence with my colours, and best of all I now understand how and where on my body to wear them to best effect.
With stage 2, Style, Julie does something incredible in drawing out your personality traits, some of which you may have not realised or forgotten, and intertwines them with your lifestyle and natural body shape to form your personal style. It is such an eye-opener and great fun. Nothing is right or wrong - it's just accepting "you as you". I think I have been fighting against type most of my life, so 'new me' here I come.
The studio ambiance is charming, positive, light, airy and colourful! Both stages were good fun, informative, enlightening and very worthwhile. Julie inspires and helps you to be 'the best you', inside and out, each day."
– Shirley Salnikov
Julie is an absolute pleasure to spend time with. She is an expert in her field and I do not hesitate to recommend her. Julie did my colours and that was a fantastic experience, I was pleased that many of the colours that I love actually suit me but there were some surprises that I would never have thought of, new colours which I now love wearing.
I had my style session yesterday (5/7) and wow, the plain and simple outfits that I usually wear - even jeans and t shirts can be turned into a fashion statement. Yet again really exciting stuff for me. Julie really knows her craft and makes it all about you. Book a session, you won't regret it!
– Tracey Rickard (post Step 2)
I get so many compliments about how great I look. It happens especially when I'm clothes shopping. I always give your name and sing your praises and recommend you.
You have changed the way I look and feel about myself. I have so much confidence in all areas of my life.
Thank You Julie
– Julie Biss
It was a pleasure to meet Julie at House of colour, Bournemouth. It was a positive, fun experience. The colour analysis, style and make up sessions were well worth it.
Julie was great fun,she was patient, positive and an inspiration to me to make me think about how I will dress and present myself in the future.
I would like to say a HUGE thank you and would highly recommend Julie to anyone thinking of having this done. It’s a real treat.
– Delyth Hill
I just wanted to say thank you for a fabulous afternoon, what a treat!
I found the whole process very enjoyable and at times very enlightening. You immediately made me feel very at ease and comfortable in your studio and therefore I was able to relax into the process and know I was in very capable hands.
It was good to find out I hadn't been going totally wrong all this time but you definately opened my eyes to new possibilities.
I’m really looking forward to reading what you’ve given me, taking it all in and sorting through my wardrobe and reducing it to items that I know work and work well together. Then comes the more targeted shopping with my new friend ‘the wallet’
I can’t thank you enough Julie, I just wished I had done this years ago, but hey its never too late!
– Jo Daughters
Thank You for a fabulous refresh today. Really appreciated all your advice and explanation. I found this invaluable and so enjoyed the whole experience.
You were just what I needed and so funny reminding me of my gamine traits! Hadn't realised they were so obvious - Thank you.
– Sue Chapman
I met Julie through a women’s networking group, along with others who had already had their colours analysed by her and she came highly recommended; she is such a bubbly character.
Almost immediately when Julie started draping me with different colours that matched my season (Autumn) my whole face lit up, it was like the sun had suddenly come out and when she draped me in a colour that was not right for me to give me a comparison the light went out.
I realised for many years I had been going into shops to buy clothes, particularly those for work and seeing a dress or skirt and just thinking ‘that will do’. Well I had been walking around for many years feeling nothing more than I blended in with the crowd, no one noticed me and I didn’t feel special in any way. Now I knew why!
When I put on my colours I felt bright, confident and noticeable. It made me smile which added even more warmth to my personality.
My ‘go to colours’ in the past were black and dark blue, so wrong! I now wear orange, mustard yellow and many, many other colours I would never have worn in the past. I go into shops and head straight for my colours, I am in no way attracted to any clothes that are not the right colour for me. I feel so much more alive, more confident, more me!
Without a doubt that day was really fun, you cannot be with Julie and not have fun, but it was so much more than that. It opened my eyes to who I really am and made me realise I am worthy of being noticed in a crowd. I do want to walk into a room and be noticed, that is a great feeling, particularly when you always walk in with a smile on your face because you feel so fabulous. The confidence boost is enormous.
I would strongly recommend to anyone to have a colour analysis and even better to have your style and make up done as well. You have an expert in Julie, you only have to look at her to see how vibrant and attractive she is and that’s because she knows what makeup suits her and what colours flatter her and she makes the most of that.
– Judi Runciman
“What a valuable, eye opening and enjoyable day I had with Julie this week. Right from the start she put me at my ease and made sure she understood what I wanted to get from the day. We talked about style, what suited me and what to avoid. We then moved onto colour. What a revelation. I never realised I could wear so many colours and how they all work together. We finished off with make-up. Julie made it easy to try out all the products and I looked like me, only better!
Doing all three parts together really built my understanding and confidence. Throughout, Julie was supportive, professional and perceptive. I had been thinking about doing this for a while and it was so powerful I only wish I had done it sooner - I’ll certainly be recommending it to my friends.
Thank you Julie for making it such fabulous fun!”
– Helen Mason
Julie has a wonderful way to make you feel relaxed and welcome.
Your time with her will be fun and revealing.
I found it all very interesting and highly recommend everyone having their colours done.
– Nicola Massieu Cowlard
Just completed the styling day with Julie and it was another fantastic session.
So many great takeaways and insights that we will use again and again.
So much fun and so much learnt.
Feeling brilliant! Thanks Julie.
– Imogen Rayner
I had a fabulous time with Julie getting to know my colours and style!
Julie was so lovely to spend time with and so knowledgeable about what would work best for me.
I would highly recommend Julie Jackson.
– Kelly Joyce
I had a colour consultation with Julie and in hindsight, I wish I’d done this 20 years ago.
As Julie takes you through the process of identifying what colours most suit you, it quickly becomes clear what a difference the right shade can make to your appearance. I’ve since bought a few items of clothing in a few of the top colours for me and I LOVE wearing these.
She also identified the shades of makeup that would be most complementary for me to wear and as someone who really doesn’t wear much makeup, she has also helped bring me some comfort around wearing lipstick now.
Julie offers a lovely calm, quiet space and is a pleasure to spend time with, so it felt like a real treat doing this session with her.
I highly recommend having your colours done if you haven’t already and Julie is an absolutely fantastic person to be guiding you through the process.
– Neena Saith
I have had an amazing experience with Julie, she is very knowledgeable and willing to share what she can with you.
From our work together I believe I make better decisions on clothes, style and colour, that most suits me and from there I believe it gives me more confidence in myself, when going out to 'face the world'.
I very recently found myself being made redundant and looking for my next role and putting outfits together that made me feel good about myself were most definitely a key component on why I've been successful in obtaining the role I want.
– Victoria Heeley
I initially saw Julie for the colour consultation but I was so impressed with her knowledge and the simple way she applied it to my particular context that I booked in for the style session the following week!
Incredible value, wish I had known this stuff years ago!
– Daniel Millbank
Oh yes Julie so insightful. I cannot get over how many comments I have had in the last six months about how well I look! I smile inside knowing people have no idea that through your guidance on the right colour and make up for my skin tone and choosing clothes which suit me I seem to appear differently.
I look back at my subdued and mute colours from two years ago and now my personality is shining through.
To be honest I was quite sceptical before our appointment. Now I am the total convert. Love being a summer girl (not the autumn one I thought I was)
– Fiona Bolt
Julie came to the rescue when I was at a bit of a low and in need of a boost. Our first meeting was like a therapy session with Julie helping to rediscover the real me.
Julie is just amazing at putting you at your ease and now I feel like she’s my best friend.
After a wonderful day at Julie’s studio I left fully equipped with the knowledge and confidence to put together some eye-catching outfits, not to mention the bag full of makeup to go with my new look.
I had the typical wardrobe - full of clothes but nothing to wear! Now I know what colours & styles suit my shape and personality and the best bit……I am often complimented on how amazing I look.
My reply? I feel amazing. All thanks to Julie 💕
– Debbie Parsons
I’m not sure everyone would describe me as having a ‘sunny disposition’, but Julie Jackson did! Well, Julie found I’m a ‘Summer’ colour in my recent Colour Analysis! It was an eye opening experience, literally, I can now see the sparkle in my big blue eyes!
After piling on the pounds recently for one reason or another, I have grown out of love for myself and become incredibly tired of looking in the mirror and seeing a cloud of grey.
Julie did a fantastic job of making me comfortable while she showed me what colours made me look great to wear, shades of makeup and she even made me look younger!
We go to a professional for most advice, so why not do so with how you look, every day, where making first impressions are key in business and social settings.
For now, please bear with me while I phase out the dull ‘corporate’ wear… oh and I’ll work on that sunny smile.
– Michelle Dixon
It's easy to get stuck in a rut, and if I'm honest I sometimes dressed to be invisible.
The session with Julie was a real eye opener (literally!) and was a great way to focus on how I want to come across and what really brings the best out in me. Julie was warm and patient and really explained the power of colours. Since my session, I have had lots of comments such as - Have I had my haircut? Have I been away? Have I lost weight? But no, I am just wearing better colour choices that complement me better.
Thanks Julie for a great experience.
– Alison Winsborough
I had such a fun morning. I found my perfect colours and have since discovered a new found confidence wearing them. I’ve been able to overhaul my wardrobe and now love every item. I felt completely at ease throughout the morning and was guided rather than told, which involved me fully in the process. Thank you.
– Ali Jones
I spent a wonderful afternoon with Julie and what a surprise it was! I was pretty convinced I knew what colours suited me and always wore autmn colours.
Well how wrong was I! Turns out I'm a Summer. My skin looked brighter and my teeth and eyes whiter!
Julie takes a lot of time to really get you to understand how it works and the results are amazing. Can really recommend the lipsticks - they really stay on.
– Lin Sharp
Thank you so much to you have literally changed my life!
I had my colours done last Friday! Well, I had colour analysis - something I have wanted to do for years. Scientifically the colours we wear can make us look brighter, healthier, and even younger! It’s all to do with tones of colour and how colours interact and it’s GENIUS. I say my face change completely before my eyes, just because of the fabric surrounding it. The difference was overwhelming and I think quite possibly life changing! Its going to end up saving me a lot of time and money going forward. It was SO much fun - almost like therapy with some imaging and dreaming thrown in. I left feeling like a new woman !
We even covered hair colour, make up, jewellery, nail colour and even shoes and bags! I can’t wait to go back to learn about dressing for my shape, personality & lifestyle - it was a game changer thank you Julie!
– Danielle Manton-Kelly
I booked in with Julie to see what my best colours would be. She was warm, welcoming & full of enthusiasm.
She explained the process fully to me & obviously knows what she's doing!
The whole experience made my morning the perfect balance of relaxing & exciting.
I left feeling happier & more confident than when I arrived.
