I haven't always done this .... and if you'd told me five years ago that I'd be doing this for a living, I would never have believed you! I've spent more of my life outside of the UK than in it, working in countries like France, Spain, Colombia,…


If only I had done this years ago!

Sometimes I got it right, sometimes I got it wrong ..... but NOW I know why. I have a formula process to follow that delivers time time again!

Before my session, I remember thinking it was a bit expensive ..... After, I was in no doubt that it was the best money Id spent on myself in ages - Priceless!

____________________________________________________________________________________

Those quotes, above, are just a few of the comments Ive heard over the years from men and women who have embarked on the House of Colour journey and who now enjoy throwing open their wardrobes to dress as their absolute best self every day. I made the same ones myself after Id finally taken the plunge and got analysed!

It seems crazy, until youve done it, but the CONFIDENCE you gain from KNOWING YOU LOOK GREAT, is really what this is all about.

Weight loss, greater happiness, a healthier approach to life, career advancement, romance, and exciting new beginnings are usually some of the many inevitable by-products of the increased confidence gained when your image fits, and exactly expresses, who you really are on the inside.

I am thrilled to have the great privilege of empowering my clients to feel more confident through style and colour. I love seeing how they embrace their newfound understanding to reap major benefits in so many different aspects of their lives.

Its all about YOU!

You can easily learn how to look younger, happier and healthier, so that friends, family, and colleagues comment daily on how well you look. You may even find that everyone around you, even strangers, will smile more as they react positively to your radiant presence! More importantly though, you will feel totally fabulous and your outside and inside will feel like they really match.

Please contact me at sayle.christensen@houseofcolour.co.uk or on 07510 893524 if youd like to book. Or, if youd just like to learn more about it with no obligation whatsoever, you are welcome to attend one of my free, fun and informative events in my studio.

How does it work?

Colour Analysis

Your journey, like mine when I had my first colour analysis, begins with an inspiring session to determine the particular blend of colours that are in closest harmony with your skin tone, hair and eye colour. I could clearly see the effect the different colours had on my complexion and was amazed that some colours made me shine, whilst others drained me of all signs of life entirely. I immediately understood why I had so many barely worn smart work dresses and other clothes in my wardrobe. The bright blues, icy greys and burgundy reds that I loved did not love me back! Id put them on, only to take them off again because they never looked quite right! Or Id wear them, but would never really feel like myself. Its helpful to attend a group session in this respect, as sometimes we notice the difference more dramatically on others before we begin to see it on ourselves. Seeing how someone elses complexion can light up in the right colours, yet appear zombie-like in the wrong colours, can be extremely illuminating. If not a bit terrifying at first! The woman I attended my session with looked stunning in amber, whilst primrose left her corpse-like, and as for me, I could barely face myself in the mirror draped in pale pink! I looked ancient - and ill! Chestnut emerged as one of my Wow colours and I loved it. So much so that I changed my hair colour at the next opportunity .. I wanted that colour as close to my face as it would go!

In this session, you will also learn the powerful impact that the right colour lipstick and blusher can have. For a day to day look, when its the ideal colour, in the correct place, it doesnt even look like youre wearing make up - It just looks like you!

Youll go away with a swatch fan of all your colours along with a pocket-sized booklet containing essential and personalised information on the degree to which you can wear each colour for outstanding best effect.

You will know what works for you and why, and you will never again waste precious time or money buying the wrong clothes and accessories. Well, you might! I slipped up a bit to start with (Tangerine biker jacket .. anyone?)! No-one is perfect, after all! But it will get easier! Youll soon be able to wander into a shop, scan for your colours, and if they are not there, simply walk away!

Colour analysis starts from an investment of only 180 - less than one costly shopping mistake! How many unworn items do you have hanging in your wardrobe with the price tag still on? I will never reveal how many I had!


Personal Style

In this enlightening session, you discover the clothing style that exemplifies you! Ultimately, you will leave feeling empowered, confident, and at ease about the way you dress. It follows a structured and totally fascinating process that considers your bodys natural lines and proportions, embraces your personality, and enhances your individuality. You will learn which styles of clothes, necklines, hemlines, waistlines, and scale of accessories and patterns best complement and flatter your unique body shape and individual personality for any occasion - work, going out, formal events, hot summer days, hobbies, dog walking, school gate, exercise classes - and you will only want to dress just like you forever more.

Knowing your colours AND your style enables you, over time, to create an amazing, versatile yet affordable wardrobe which will deliver a substantial return on your investment. This new wardrobe will only contain items that you truly love and that suit you perfectly .. and because they will all be in the right palette, working together .. there need not be too many of them!

Personal style sessions start from 260.

About me

When it came time for a career change, I booked a colour analysis and style session expecting to learn that I was right to avoid wearing black and that I looked great in red - and hopefully a few other helpful style tips. What I did not expect at all, was to feel so completely re-energised and excited at what Id experienced, and so absolutely fascinated by the theory and technicality of the process, that I immediately decided that I wanted to make this my new career.

Best of all, I got home and ruthlessly eliminated all the wrong colours from my wardrobe. It was sartorial carnage! Tears were shed as I bade farewell to all the pastels in my life and folded my faithful cosy cobalt knit into the box. Incredibly though, after all the anguish, I was surprised to find that I was left with quite a few garments I could actually work with; items I had rarely worn! I started to try them on in different combinations and couldnt believe how good they looked. I seemed to have miraculously gained more instantly wearable outfits despite having chucked out almost half of my wardrobe!

Incidentally, I did have it confirmed in my session that I should absolutely steer very well clear of black and that red is definitely one of my colours, but I also learnt that this is actually the case for many people; only those who fall into the winter palette of vivid saturated colours can wear black without looking totally drained; and primary red is the only colour that looks good on everyone! All the other reds are a different matter entirely though ..... thats why my burgundy dresses werent doing me any favours at all! Incidentally, If I ever need to wear black these days, I just up my makeup and to compensate.

Besides how thoroughly impressed I was with the detail and certainty of the process (I had a mistaken idea that certain elements of it were going to be a bit wishy-washy and involve me struggling to explain what colours and style of clothing I favoured), I was amazed at the reaction of the other woman who was there for the colour part only. She was attending, rather reluctantly and sceptically, it seemed to me, as she had received a gift voucher from friends. She thought she might as well redeem it then because she was planning to invest in a new winter coat. She was initially devastated to discover that the autumn colour palette was unequivocally the one for her as she didnt like those colours and her wardrobe was full of black. But as time went on, and she gradually began to see the dramatic effect that the rich, warm and earthy colours were having on her face, hair and eyes, she started to embrace and value the process. Initially, she had been adamant that she would definitely not be staying for the personal style session, as that would drastically cut into her modest clothing budget but she ended up trusting the process 100% and recognising that investing in the afternoon style session would pay off ultimately as she would buy exactly the right coat, (and all clothes forever more) not only in the perfect colour, but also in her own unique style.

The fact that this woman, who first of all struggled to accept her palette, and secondly, was certain that she wasnt going to touch her clothing budget, ended up recognising the long term benefits of spending more on a personal style session than she was planning to spend on a new coat, convinced me that this is a process that everyone deserves to experience.

What I really appreciate about all of this is that its not just about colour and clothes. Its about purchasing wisely rather than buying more. Its not about fashion or fads but about feeling truly authentic.

And so here I am - helping people to discover what they dont even know they deserve! I feel incredibly fortunate to be doing a job that I love so much in this stunningly beautiful part of the world!

Public speaking

I am always thrilled to have the opportunity to talk about the wonderful world of colour and personal style to any groups, large or small, male or female. If you are looking for a guest speaker, free of charge, for an event you are planning, then please get in touch.

One last thing!

Dont do as I did and wait any longer to do this! I put it off for years, thinking that Id wait until I was the ideal weight or until I had amassed the vast funds Id need to completely overhaul my wardrobe (I also actually thought I pretty much knew what I was doing colour and style wise - I just wanted some reassurance that I was, along with some tips and pointers! Admittedly, I wasnt doing too badly..... I had some lovely clothes and people often said I looked nice ..... but the compliments werent consistent because I wasnt consistently wearing my best colours or style - because I didnt accurately know what they were! I learnt that I could have been doing so much better! Also, most of us do not have the perfect figure (whatever that is!), so its important that we know how to highlight our good bits and disguise our less desirable ones. It really doesnt matter what size or shape you are, I can help you discover stylish items that will complement your figure. It doesnt have to be expensive (unless you really want it to be!) and its certainly not something that most of us can do all in one go. Incredible transformations start with as little as a new lipstick and a scarf in one of your Wow colours! And some of my most successful items have been found in charity/vintage stores!

You have to see it to be amazed and believe it, so please get in touch to see for yourself!

I look forward to meeting you very soon!

Warmest wishes

Sayle
