During the consultation I spend time in person going through a process which I’ve designed to be the perfect starting place so I can get to know my client, create a bespoke style profile and style some outfits.

The session includes;

  • Assessment of lifestyle needs.
  • Assessment of style personality.
  • Assessment of body shape, make up, hair and shopping habits.
  • Top three style needs addressed.
  • A peek into the wardrobe to assess current items.
  • Style up for one or two outfits with what we find!
  • thorough follow up notes, shopping and style plan.

Further in depth follow up work is done from my studio and a personalised style profile is kept in my records and sent to the client for reference. It becomes an invaluable tool which I update after any further sessions.

Do you feel frumpy or out of fashion these days?

Is your old formula not working for you anymore?

Are you ‘waiting until…’?!!

During the consultation the wardrobe is briefly assessed and even at this early stage items discussed, put aside or re worked.

We create one or two outfits as we move through the session. Each person and experience is different even though I follow the same process.

After the session, I spend a time pulling together all that we have achieved and send an email to my client.

This includes; Personalised style guidelines, body shape notes, my notes from the session, shopping links to items and a note of stores which will be suitable. Lastly, I include a plan for moving forward and immediate action points.

This thorough and inspiring  process covers briefly all areas of style, including make-up and hair as the aim is to get a complete overview. It is a great starting place and in some cases it’s all you need to get going – but most people want more……….

What about your wardrobe?

Heaven or hell?

Let me help you get it sorted.

Do you have a wardrobe full of clothes but nothing to wear?

Does your wardrobe serve you or send you into a panic?!

Typically, people only wear 30% of their wardrobe, so assessing that questionable 70% is a wonderful feeling!! It leaves room for a more considered approach, which is hard to gain when you are in even a mild state of chaos.

This is a bespoke service according to the client’s needs but usually I recommend 2 hours as a good starting place and 4 hours as a maximum for one session.

I take a systematic approach of going through every item in the wardrobe and assessing it and then re-organise and put aside items, creating outfits as we go along.

Space appears in the wardrobe as if by magic and I take notes of the ‘gaps’ that appear where key items are needed as well as providing tips on how to best store and arrange your clothes.

I spend further time providing notes in my follow-up email and these will include a list of key missing items needed to pull together some of the looks discussed during the sessions together, as well as links to a few pieces and ideal stores to look in.

As always, I provide a clear plan of what the best next steps are for my client.

It’s about bringing cohesion, perspective and vision all at once!

The ultimate feel good factor is finishing the task of editing a wardrobe… because from there you can build…

This is something that is key to nearly everyone’s image and even the most bare-faced people sometimes need a bit of help on special occasions to know what will work for them.

I design a selection of daytime or evening looks for my clients, in keeping with their face shape, skin, lifestyle needs, style personality, trends and most importantly, their colouring.

I re-work the contents of their make- up bag to give clients a suitable kit for every occasion.

Advice on brushes, brands, key products and trends is essential, as well as having the right everyday items.

I can provide a make-up lesson, top tips for the individual or even buy and put together a complete kit.

I stock and sell make up products by Colour Me Beautiful which are designed with each person’s individual colouring in mind. These are an invaluable resource and extremely good quality products at a very reasonable price.

I offer individual seasonal updates for make-up via email – and for all my existing clients I can provide products posted out to them on request.

I take all the guesswork out of shopping for make up so you have confidence in what you are buying and in your finished look.

I can provide help for specialist cover make up for problems such as sun-damage, scars, tattoos and thread veins.

I can also refer for skin care- including micro surgery and permanent make up procedures.

Hair design

Hair is also extremely important!

Often the first thing people notice, it is sometimes over-looked and can be enhanced with the right vision.

We all look fabulous when we’ve just had a blow dry but I deal with the reality of each person’s hair type, their day to day life and budget as well as their style personality and face shape. I also provide special occasion styling as part of an overall look and creative ideas for variety!

I always aim for a complete image that takes the client’s needs into consideration. For some people it’s just finding the right brush and hair styling products, for others it might be a trip to a specialist. Whatever the needs, I aim to cater to each individual and enhance their overall appearance.

I will give advice on what is the best direction for style, including colour, cut, specific styling needs-such as hair-up and options for ‘dirty hair days’. I also provide details of the best kit for clients and help to negotiate the sometimes over-whelming product market, by suggesting items suited to them. I can also refer to other talented professionals for cut, colour and extensions.

Again, taking the whole person into account, this all helps people look younger, more healthy and presented as they truly wish to be!
