Personal Colour Analysis (PCA)
PCA is the process of comparing coloured drapes against your natural complexion and eye colour to find which of the 12 Tone Colour Palettes is right for you. 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.
Once the PCA is complete, we will go through your colour book and discuss how to use the results to your advantage when selecting clothing, accessories, makeup and hair colour. Each PCA will take approximately 3 hours and includes a makeup application and conveniently sized 12 Tone palette (retail value $70) for you to keep. See PCA FAQs for more information.
Personal Style Analysis (PSA)
During a PSA, we will identify and learn about the styles that are most flattering for your body type. These are the styles that will accentuate your best assets and minimize any "problem areas" that you may be concerned about. We will review in detail the lines, silhouettes, fabrics and prints for clothing and accessories, as well as your most flattering hairstyles. You’ll receive a personalized style packet which will include the information discussed during your session as well as images of your best styles and places to shop for your look. The PSA will take approximately 2 hours.
Available in studio or online via Skype

Colouressence Trio #1: Wardrobe Workout (2 days)
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. Finally, you will receive a Personalized Wardrobe Style Suggestion Sheet that includes everything discussed during your appointment. 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 Wardrobe Workout
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
