Hopefully you've had a busy Friday grin

Yes it's worth it OP. you can't diagnose over tinternet, my day lasted fom 9am until 4pm & was well worth the £99.

Once you've had them done & begin to purchase from your pallet you will always have something to go with it.

DH said I can do it for my birthday present. The consultants near here are both happy to do 1-2-1s and for me to bring my baby!

That's ok jenni smile

I fancy doing it now!

Thanks for the info and sorry for hijacking dancergirl! I've emailed my two local consultants to see what they say.

Hard to say - some do, some don't. I do, because I have childcare costs I have to cover so if I only have one client in it needs to be worth me working, iykwim. Not all consultants do (at a wild guess I'd say it's maybe a 50/50 split).

Do you charge a lot more for 1-2-1?

Hopefully Thu 10-Oct-13 19:22:55

Yes jennimoo. Most consultants go from about 9:30-2:30 in a group of 2-4 people. Some are a bit quicker, but should be able to tell you when you book. I've had some clients book a one to one session and bring a baby. Including one woman with a three week old shock. I was so impressed that she was even dressed.

I quite fancy doing this for my birthday but have a newborn sad
Am I right it's like a class with lots of people there, and lasts about half a day?

Yes, it is worth it.
I'd completely wrongly diagnosed my season using the online sites. Seeing it all happen in front of the mirror, & watching others coming to life in the right drapes, was a revelation. I've saved money since by not buying things I'd have jumped on before, & got far more compliments by wearing the things I do have.

Kettlewell is just an online shop that gets recommended by the consultants as it grades all it's colours according to season.

Thanks...and what's Kettlewell, is that something else?

Yes - it has saved me a fortune! Someone will come along in a minute to tell you it's as easy as seeing what suits you - it's not, well not for me anyway. I just can't see colour confidently but I can see now that black was making me look tired and old. I am buying fewer clothes but wearing them all hence the saving. Wish I'd done it years ago.

Yes, it's worth it. Had my colours done last year and the personal style day earlier this year.

Has completely transformed my approach to shopping and dressing and I have had a tonne of compliments.

I look and feel younger and more confident and everything in my wardrobe suits me and goes together.

Do it!

I keep reading on here about House of Colour and just wondering is the colour analysis thing they do worth it?

I have no idea what colours suit me, I just buy colours I like.

What about their other services, personal style etc?
