Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
Just wanted to say hello & it's really worth getting your colours done. I went with HoC too & it's made such a huge difference to how I shop & wear things, no more wasted money & unworn things. But sorry, can't help with a consultant as I'm in the north but over the other side. I'm sure someone will help though. If you find you're a Spring you can come & join our thread
I'm a bit further north - on the coast, east of Newcastle. I just used the consultant on the HOC page - Gill Bushnell - but she works in Northumberland and Newcastle. She was friendly and very helpful. Spent a lovely, relaxing half day with her.
Looking at the website, there is a consultant in County Durham, Jill Green. Hopefully someone will come along about her.
I trained with someone (am a HoC consultant) who had had their colours and style done by Jill Green, and was really happy with her. She'd had quite a difficult time in the run up to getting her colours done and felt Jill really guided her through it. Obviously we're all trained exactly the same anyway, but it's always nice to know someone's had a good day with whoever you're considering .
I live in south Durham. I had my colours done last year by Judy Ward and was happy with the day; Judy is no longer doing the colour analysis and her patch (Durham, North Yorks) has been taken over by Joanne Smith. Joanne seems friendly when I've emailed her, and has an up to date facebook page (google her name). I'm hoping to do the style day with her later in the year.
I've found Jill Green's facebook page and asked where she is based, she says Castle Eden? I have NO idea where that is. I've just looked up Joanne Smiths' facebook page, no where to leave a message for her though. Jill was quite happy for me to email her though which is good.
Its just finding who's nearest to me, as neither me or my mum don't drive so we would just taxi up there.
Also, I've a feeling I'm a soft summer or something, as I got some new PJs for christmas and they are a lovely soft turqouise colour, and I have had them on and the colour just makes me look alive lol.
I so want to be a Spring or something though. I think my mum is some sort of winter but wouldn't be surprised if she was a dark autumn or something.
Also the house of colour seasons? how are they catergorised? I keep hearing blue spring, sultry winter? what does that all mean? I'm used to like, clear, warm, true spring or dark autumn or whatever.
