Do you lack confidence in your appearance and struggle to dress to express who you really are and how you want to be perceived?  Well, you're already in the right place! I can help. Let's have a chat.


Lindsay West

I first heard about House of Colour eleven years ago at a Christmas fair.  The consultant walked into the school hall and made such an impression on me.  She was the oldest person in the room but looked absolutely amazing and I thought 'I want to look like her!'.  

Over the next year for birthday and Christmas presents I booked my colour and style classes.  After my colour class I was hooked.  I was someone who preferred merging into the background so that I wasn't noticed, but my career had come to a standstill.  Discovering which colours were best for my skin tone had a dramatic effect and I started being noticed and getting compliments, not about what I was wearing particularly, but more about how well I looked.  I had never worn lipstick and realised what a difference it made to my whole appearance when I did.

I discovered that the colours that really suit me are bright, clear and extremely visible!  I could no longer hide. Wearing the right colours has enabled me to present myself with self-confidence.  Learning about my clothing personality was enlightening and empowering.   It gave me new confidence and the freedom to be me!

Unleash your inner confidence, discover your true colours and embrace your authentic style.

My studio is in my home less than a mile from the centre of the beautiful city of Salisbury. The services I offer include:

COLOUR ANALYSIS - This is the first step, where, using a series of drapes we discover the best colours for your skin tone. You will learn how to recognise the best colours for you to wear and how to wear them. I will recommend the makeup colours that will work for you. You will take home a fan of fabric swatches of your seasons colours and a personalised booklet on how to use your colours. The confidence that comes from knowing your colours is life-changing!

PERSONAL STYLE DAY - Discover the styles, shapes, scale and lengths that flatter your body shape and reflect your personality. Gain confidence in your style and look and feel amazing every day.

MAKEUP - Using House of Colour makeup and Tropic skincare products, I help you find the right products for your skin and create the make-up looks that work for you and your lifestyle.

WARDROBE REVIEW - Do you have a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear? Are there items you bought and have never worn, still with the tags on? Before we head to the shops we should really try shopping in our wardrobes. Bookable by the hour, I help you to sort through your wardrobe, create outfits, identify gaps and create a capsule wardrobe. This can be done via zoom or face-to-face. This is a valuable and practical session to help you create a wardrobe of clothes that works for you and for your lifestyle.

COLOUR RERATE - Over time, with advancing years and sometimes with periods of ill health, our skin and hair change. There can be a fading in the colour of our hair to shades of white, silver and grey. Our skin can show some changes too. Whilst your season wont change with time, the WOW colours from your palette may. We recommend having a rerate of your colours every 5-7 years to be sure you know that you are wearing the best colours nearest to your face. You will still be able to wear all of your season's palette, you may just need to alter how you wear them. In your consultation, I revisit your season's palette and re-rerate using a three star system to find your most impactful colours. I will revisit your makeup colours so please feel free to bring along your existing makeup for me to review. The session includes a new ratings booklet. If you no longer have your colour swatch wallet from your original consultation, these are available to purchase on the day.

PERSONAL SHOPPING - Short of time? Using our online wardrobe management tool, HoC Look Book, let me help you to find the perfect outfits for your capsule wardrobe, a specific item or just fill the gaps.

GLASSES STYLING - Do you struggle to find glasses that are interesting, in your colour and that suit your face shape? Glasses bring colour to your face and sit right in the middle of your communication zone so you need to get them right. If you wear them every day, they are a major investment, so getting the perfect pair really matters. I have teamed up with VIP Eyewear, a dispensing optician, who will fit quality lenses into your frames, so its the complete package! Varifocals or single vision, prescription sunglasses and more. All you need is your prescription.

CREATING A SUSTAINABLE SHOE WARDROBE - Do you need help finding shoes to work with your wardrobe, lifestyle and budget? In my 3-step Shoe Wardrobe Review, you will identify gaps in your current shoe wardrobe - colours and style. I will help you to match shoe styles to your clothing personality. Then you will prepare to go shoe shopping and prioritise what to purchase whilst keeping within your budget.

INTERVIEW PREPARATION - Need an outfit for an interview? Let me help you find something in your wardrobe that is appropriate and conveys the best first impression.

BRAND PHOTO SHOOT STYLING - When you invest in a brand shoot, you know you will be using the pictures for many months, so why not let me help you find the look that best expresses the authentic you, to take the stress away and give you confidence and peace of mind.

WEDDING STYLING - I can help you to find the colours that make you look radiant, your perfect white, the style of dress that reflects your personality, and the right makeup look that you are really comfortable with. I am also happy to help brides, grooms, mothers of the bride or groom and bridesmaids to find outfits or do their makeup.

ACCESSORISING WITH CONFIDENCE - This is such a great session. Find out how to make the most of your accessories to finish off your look. We can check your items to see what works and what doesn't. Change your whole look with just a couple of tweaks! A really useful session resulting in new found confidence.

TALKS - If you need a guest speaker for an event, let me inspire your group with a talk tailored to your audience and their needs on style, colour analysis, current fashion trends, sustainable shopping or the language of clothes.

Consultations with me are not just for the day - THEY LAST A LIFETIME!

I bought my partner Martin a Colour consultation for Christmas. Lindsay ensured all COVID protocols were in place. She has a beautiful, well-lit studio where we were welcomed with coffee and delicious pastries. She was thorough and detailed, exploring every avenue of analysis.

You listened and provided specific, actionable advice. You know your stuff when it comes to colour and style not only as it applies to you, but to people with different builds and colouring. I really appreciate you staying in touch and always having something new to offer, even if I'm not always in a position to engage right there and then.

I left my Style session with Lindsay feeling happy, excited inspired and full of ideas and energy. Lindsay really got to the bottom of why some styles I liked just didn’t suit me and now I understand why my favourite pieces are my favourite pieces. I love the way she was able to fit my body, face type and personality into the styles of the clothes and accessories that will make me look my absolute best. She did this in an easy going and fun but sensitive, structured and clever way. I can’t wait to start exploring the stores for some new, key pieces I’ll love with the confidence that I know exactly where my money will be best invested. 

Kay

Before meeting Lindsay I wore 'safe' colours which often made me look drained and tired. After working with Lindsay I now have the confidence to wear brighter colours which I know make me look great! Lindsay goes the extra mile. Thank you!

I had a lovely relaxing and very informative morning with Lindsay. I thought my colours had slightly changed with age and she proved me right. I'm now wearing my new WOW colours and looking and feeling so much better.

I thought I knew what colour season I was before going to see Lindsay and it turns out I couldn’t have be more wrong! As Lindsay went through the process, I could see that certain colours just made me light up. I’ve had some struggles with self esteem but watching myself in the mirror as Lindsay found my best colours, I felt really beautiful - like being me was enough with no need to hide or be different.

I’ve now got some pieces in my wardrobe that match my colour palette and that I feel great in - even if my hair is greasy and I’m not wearing makeup! I feel so much more confident starting to wear more colour instead of playing it safe and only wearing neutrals. Lindsay was fantastic and really put me at ease. I couldn’t recommend it enough! It’s well worth the investment.

I absolutely loved my colour analysis with Lindsay West. I love clothes and make up but have hit that age when I have slightly lost my way. Lindsay was warm, enthusiastic, and being a great communicator she explained everything very clearly, and really cared about getting things right. Not only that, she's a very nice person and a pleasure to spend time with. I feel like I've got my style mojo back thanks to Lindsay, and would thoroughly recommend.

So grateful & relieved to have found Lindsay, who quickly confirmed my season but then took the time to discover my sub-season, which was a little trickier (Sprinter Winter). She's created a calm and professional environment in her home studio, and after a number of years where health issues have taken priority, it was a little emotional to suddenly see “the real me” in the mirror again. Before the session i thought the cost was a lot to spend on myself in one go, now i feel it was worth every penny for the increased confidence in choosing colours (& in what proportions to wear them) - which will save me from expensive mistakes and sending lots of clothes back. I highly recommend her.
