QUESTION: How long does it take?
YC&S take the time you need. So, for example, you can expect your colour analysis to take a minimum of three hours and a maximum of six hours. Your consultation includes 30 minutes looking in your wardrobe and at your accessories and make-up when we know what your best colours are.
With your personal style consultation, a wardrobe review is included again, but this time looking at your clothes in terms of materials, colours, patterns and style. Not forgetting your accessories. Therefore, this consultation takes a minimum of four hours and can take up to eight hours, if you want that amount of time spent with you.
QUESTION: Will I end up looking like you?
I hope not! We are all unique so you want to create your unique, appropriate look. We work together and you will get ideas and learn YC&S preferred suppliers to bespoke items of clothing or accessories that will be right for you. You get unbiased advice but ultimately you choose what you wear. You are not forced to do anything you do not want to do.
QUESTION: Does your season change?
It shouldn’t do! If you were correctly diagnosed, your skin pigmentation is the same from birth to death. However, the way in which you wear your season’s colours may vary as your body changes with age. This is why you should keep in touch with your personal stylist throughout your life, as they can help you adapt your look.
QUESTION: What season am I?
This is the most frequently asked question! Unfortunately it’s not good to guess and there is no obvious connection with eye or hair colour and a particular season. If there were you wouldn’t need a personal stylist.
Everyone has their own unique natural combination of skin tone, eye and hair colour. The seasonal system of colour analysis is easy to work with once you know what season is yours.
Not many people have successfully identified their season correctly, in fact many people are often surprised, so if you want to know yours for sure, book a consultation.
You will learn a lot more than your season, with Your Colour & Style.
QUESTION: What if I don’t like my season?
What if I don’t like my season? Well, that happened to me! I sat there seeing the big difference the Autumn colours made to me – making me look younger and healthier – and thinking I didn’t like the colours and would never have looked for them in the shops (hence having an entirely wrong wardrobe for me except for one cream blouse that I’d “worn to death”!) So, it took me at least six months many years ago to “get into” my colours. I absolutely love my wardrobe now, and can’t wait to open it in the morning. It bursts forth colour and makes me smile instantly. I have trouble picking – because there’s so much I love and want to wear. Fortunately, there appears to be more colour around in the shops now, for every “season” whatever you are, so panic not. And, I will help you so you can transition (if necessary) more quickly and with ease. Where I incorporate viewing your wardrobe as part of the colour or style consultation, it is becoming clear that people often have much more that is good for them than I ever did, and they are pleasantly surprised. So please do not worry about that either!
QUESTION: Will you tell me not to wear black?
We may see that black isn’t as flattering for you as other colours. If that is the case, and you have a lot of white or black in the wardrobe, I will help you make the most of what you have. My mission is to save you TIME, MONEY and HASSLE. I work with you, your preferences, your budget and to your timescales.
QUESTION: I’ve already had my colours done – how can you help me?
There’s more to your appearance than discovering your best colours. If you have only been colour-analysed and stopped there you are missing quite a lot more! And, I have had several clients who have been to others and not understood what they were told. When they come to me they say afterwards that they “get it”. I will take the time you need to explain what you need to know to be able to work the information for you. Don’t forget, I offer a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with my efforts – so there is no reason not to try me!
