Services provided by Colouressence:
Personal Color Analysis (PCA) and Personal Image Analysis (PIA)
This service provides the client with a Personal Color and Image Analysis so that they can wear their most flattering colors in their most flattering styles.
PCA is the process of comparing coloured drapes against your natural complexion and eye colour to find which of the 12 Tone Colour Palettes harmonizes best. The correct colours will make your eyes look bright and will make your skin glow, whereas the wrong colours can make you look sallow and less vibrant.
PIA is the process of identifying the styles that will accentuate your best assets and minimize any "problem areas" that you may be concerned about.
After both analyses are completed we will review in detail the lines, silhouettes, fabrics and prints for clothing and accessories that are the most flattering for and will go through your colour book and discuss how to use the results to your advantage when selecting clothing, accessories, makeup and hair colour.how to use your 12 one Swatch book (which include 65 of the most harmonious colors for you) See PCA FAQs for more information.
The key to having a great wardrobe is to fill it with colours and styles that make you look and feel great. Rethink the dreaded closet clean-out and opt for our Wardrobe Workout. This process will involve going through each item in your closet one by one and making three piles: “Yes,” “No,” and “Maybe.” The Yes pile is self explanatory—these are the clothes that make you look fabulous. The “Maybe” pile consists of pieces that might work for you by pairing them with “Yes” garments or with tailoring. We will mix and match items from these two piles to create dynamic and unique ensembles. The clothing in the “No” pile will be things that no longer suit you and can be removed from your wardrobe.
Colouressence Trio #2: Shopping: Any Way You Want (2 days)*
Now that you have all the tools to look your best, you can get the clothing and accessories to match! Our goal is to provide you with a shopping solution that fits into your lifestyle. If you’re very hands on, you might enjoy a shopping session together which can be very instructive as well. If the idea of shopping makes you cringe, you might prefer that I select clothing, accessories etc for you and then we can regroup for you to try them on. For the latter, we can meet in-store or the items can be sent to your home. Finally, if you’re the type of person who believes there aren’t enough hours in the day, the third option—online shopping—may be your ideal solution. In this scenario, we will discuss what you want or need, price range and I will tailor my online searches accordingly. If you would like to update your hairstyle as a result of your PCA and PSA sessions from Day 1, you can make an appointment at the salon of your choice (or I can recommend one) and I can accompany you to your appointment and help communicate to the stylist exactly what you want for no extra charge.
Includes PCA, PSA, 6 hours of Shopping: Any Way You Want
