Empowering women to thrive through colour and style

Joy Mahannah

Colour and Image Consultant

Step into
your authentic style

I used to wonder why some days I looked and felt amazing, while other days I looked downright ordinary and blah. That’s because I thought that I could wear pretty much any style that I liked. Boy, was I wrong!

As women, we have an endless supply of possibilities for our wardrobe. In fact, we have so much choice that it’s confusing and there is a lot of potential for error. To make matters worse, there are always current trends that flood the stores and there is a pull for us to wear those trends – even if they don’t look good on us.

The reality is we each have a finite number of styles that look truly great on us.

The opportunity is to discover those styles so you can stop wearing the ones that leave you looking and feeling average.

Discover Your Unique Beauty

Personal Colour Analysis

Reinvent yourself with colour.

You have the potential to drastically alter how you look by using the power of colour. Understanding the colours that make you look pale and tired are just as important as discovering your “wow” colours.

These are the colours that flatter your skin, hair, and eye colour, leaving you looking healthy and refreshed.

Colours are the easiest and most impactful way to elevate how you look and feel as well as the impression that you make on others.

I had the best experience with Joy.I was nervous going in because I had never experienced this type of service before but that quickly dissolved with her warm welcome. We started our session getting to know one another which I appreciated because it made the experience feel more genuine and more comfortable. Joy made sure to explain the color categories and how they’ve evolved and how we would come to learn the pallet that best suited me by breaking it down one by one and side by side. She asked about my experience with colour along the way.I went in feeling fairly confident with my colors but had struggled with a few, mostly which neutrals suited me best. I can confidently say I have now learned which ones work best and understand why I hadn’t felt confident in colors I had previously thought might be good. Examples being colors that overpowered me, washed me oit or highlighted things I was insecure about such as hyperpigmentation.Joy gave me tips on how to work around my pallet, and if necessary how to work outside of it without sacrificing the compliments of my own pallet.I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a boost of confidence, to save on their next big fashion purchase or anyone looking for a fun learning experience.

Such a FUN and INFORMATIVE experience! Joy was lovely to work with and took time to get to know me as we worked through the color session. It was an eye opener seeing what my best colors are and discussing wardrobes and makeup. I have taken my color fan on every shopping trip since and have been surprised at how confident it makes me feel when I am looking at clothes and accessories! Way less impulse purchasing and way more thoughtful investing in pieces is letting me build a more wearable collection! Can’t wait to analyze my Fall wardrobe and shop for next season. I highly recommend working with Joy…..I am so pleased that I invested in myself!

I found Joy after falling down a rabbit hole of research prompted by Youtubers getting their colour season professionally analyzed. I tried AI tools, followed step-by-step guides, and filters, to hopefully nail down my colour season. I got almost every season (albeit Spring was a bit far off) and countless hours later, was more confused than anything else.I followed Joy on Instagram for a bit and reached out one day with curiosity about doing a colour analysis and a fair share of concern as well. After chatting with her, I thought she was really kind and helpful and figured I'd better go for it, even if just so I could stop anxiously looking at colour boards and blog posts, trying to place myself.Joy was very patient with me as I stumbled through the process and could not see how a colour was better than another. I saw most of my clothes be eliminated through the draping process and kept looking at summer tones longingly. I had really hoped I had been at least in the right ballpark in all my research, or that my closet, at least, didn't have to be fully revisited.When Joy decIared confidently my colour season, I'll admit I was very resistant to it. It felt too bold and too brave. However, as Joy guided me through the drapes of my colours, I realized that I had already been wearing a lot of those, and could see some icy colours that I could also make use of. I recognized colours that Ihad somehow been attracted to, but had more recently eliminated, in favour of the muted, greige, monotone, that I thought was so cozy and trendy. I am hoping that with time, I can peel back the popular greige filter, that I so readily accepted.I believe I made the right decision. With the skills Joy taught me and the resources she provided, I know I can be more conscious in my shopping, finding items that I can wear season after season, regardless of the trend. It also saves me the worry that I've spent too much on a piece that may not even suit me, especially since I want to move away from fast fashion and sustainable clothing can be so expensive.

I just had a colour analysis with Joy and am so happy I got it done. She is so lovely to chat with and very helpful. The session was highly informative, and I finally feel ready to start piecing together a better wardrobe. I found myself on the fence with most things in my wardrobe (aside from my black pieces) but, colour always overwhelmed me. If you sound like me and need some direction - Joy is your girl!

This experience with Joy was so lovely and informative - she has completely transformed my approach on clothing, hair, and make up going forward. This experience is worth the investment considering all the money I’ve already wasted on clothes and cosmetics that do not enhance my own features. Joy is also super kind, professional, and patient with all of my questions; she is clearly passionate in this field and loves educating others. Thank you Joy!

Joy, has been a lifesaver for me. This colour/style journey has not only saved me numerous hours but also a significant amount of money. Joy's patience and extensive knowledge have been invaluable. I truly appreciate the expertise she brings to the table. I will cherish the knowledge gained from this experience for years to come. Looking back, I wish I had embarked on this journey sooner. Highly recommended!

After getting a Colour Analysis from Joy I have new-found confidence shopping for clothing and makeup that I look and feel great in. During our session I learned how different colours accentuate my positives and negatives, how to build a cohesive wardrobe, and even what shades of red lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow work best for me and my season. She is warm and welcoming, and her studio is a clean, professional space. The compliments have come rolling in after following her recommendations. Thank you so much Joy!

Working with Joy was one of the BEST investments I made in myself in 2022. I don't live in Vancouver, so I flew from Edmonton to experience her Personal Colour Analysis & Personal Image Analysis Session.Joy's knowledge about colour/style and scientific-based training, along with her kind and supportive personality is what drew me to her. I didn't want to just hire a stylist who would style me in clothes and colours that they like and wear, but instead, someone who was able to celebrate my unique shape and features, and help me dress for the features I do have!To say this was a transformative experience is an understatement. It's hard to put into words how your perspective on clothes, colours, make-up and yourself changes after a session with Joy.Before working with Joy, I never considered myself to be stylish. I didn't know how to put certain looks together, I would walk into a clothing store feeling overwhelmed, I would spend money on clothes that didn't look great on me (and I didn't know why).Since doing these sessions with Joy, I know EXACTLY what colours, outfits, styles, and materials look great on ME! I feel so much more confident in my clothes and have received so many compliments on my outfits from strangers, family and friends ALL the time! (this never happened before). Shopping is SO MUCH easier (I can easily go into a store and know what will work for me and what won't).I've taken my entire personal image to a whole new level!Yes, it is an investment, but it is one you will never regret making. I feel so much BETTER and HAPPIER in my clothes and I have a closet full of items that I actually wear and love.Thank you, Joy! I am so grateful for this experience and service with you. It's completely changed everything for me!

I had my colour analysis with Joy and it was a wonderful experience. Joy is a lovely person. It was a surprise to find out what my colour season is. It is super interesting to learn that if you use the right colours you can bring out the best in yourself to share with others. I am very happy with the information Joy shared with me.

I went to see Joy for a colour assessment and I was really blown away with the difference having this consult made. I realized, even though I have a lot of items in my closet, very few were doing anything for me. As a result, I shop much more intentionally. It's saved me a ton of money and I was finally able to purge the items from my closet that i 'loved' but never seemed to actually wear. It's really the difference between those 'I love your outfit' comments versus 'that looks great on you' comments. I can't recommend getting a colour assessment profiling from Joy enough, I really wish I did this years ago.

I got so much out of my time with Joy. I left empowered with my body type with new knowledge of what would look great and accentuate my shape and I got to discover a whole new range of colours that look great on me; a new boldness for my wardrobe. This gave me the lift to be brave, playful and self expressed. Really I left loving myself. Thanks Joy.

I took Joy's Personal Colour Analysis and was very surprised at the results. I'm typically drawn by warm tones and so my wardrobe is mostly filled with these tones. I discovered; however, that the best colours for me are cool tones. Joy's step-by-step process clearly showed me that I looked best in cooler shades and I didn't have many clothes in my ideal shades. Even my hair colour was the wrong shade! I'm now excited when I go shopping because I don't have to second guess my choices. I take my little swatch book with me to make sure I'm choosing wisely. I've even gotten good at it online 🙂 As a public speaker, it's important for me to stand in front of an audience feeling and looking my best. Joy's Personal Colour Analysis was priceless for me. If you're a CEO, leader, manager, entrepreneur, do it – you'll be adding to your competitive advantage.

Working with Joy helped me understand what colors/cuts look best on my body type with my coloring (I’m a redhead). Shopping for clothes is suddenly SO much easier, I’m saving money by strategically picking items that work for me, and I keep getting compliments about how I look! Wearing the right colors is subtle but so impactful; I highly recommend investing in working with Joy, it’s well worth it.

Thanks to Joy, I have the least amount of clothes I’ve ever had and the most to wear!! Getting ready to go out for any occasion is so easy. Now that my clothes (and makeup) are in the right colour palette for me I can mix things up, creating many different looks. Friends & family have been very complimentary, which is lovely. If you want to love every piece of clothing you own, save money and time I highly recommend working with Joy. You’ll be so happy you did.

Personal Image Analysis

Reimagine yourself with style.

Have you ever admired a beautiful dress on someone else and later found that it looked terrible on you? Now think about those times when you’ve randomly found a dress that fit exceptionally well, where you felt comfortable, radiant, and confident. 

That’s because everyone’s body has a different line, shape, scale, and proportion, as does every garment. What creates harmony and beauty is when these two elements match.

Instead of rarely and randomly creating outfits that are a 10, you can consistently have a look that you love.

See what tips Joy is posting this week.
Have you ever thought about wearing yellow? 💛

Yellow is a beautiful, vibrant and energetic colour. However, it’s not the easiest colour to wear, either.

So before you go and buy that yellow tank top or dress for summer, listen to these 3 tips!

Tip 1: Wear your BEST yellow from your colour season.
Tip 2: Try adding a bold lip with your yellow outfit to elevate your look.
Tip 3: Yellow does not have to paired with only black. Explore adding yellow with other colours from your season’s palette.

For example, since I am a Bright Winter, Yellow and Red or Yellow and Purple look stunning together.

Ready to discover your best yellow? Book a Personal Colour Analysis today!

Last month, I had the absolute honour of getting to help @MollyBurkeOfficial with her Personal Colour Analysis. She shared with me how helpful this experience can be for any woman, but particularly for anyone who is blind.

Getting to empower people to feel the best in their clothes through the power of colour is why I am SO PASSIONATE about what I do. Whether you identify as a man, woman, LGBTQ+ and regardless of your capabilities or disability, discovering your BEST colours is truly a transformational experience. ✨

Again, thank you Molly for trusting me to support you in this experience. It was such an honour and I can’t wait to see you wearing your Dark Winter shades.

Which colour season looks best on Molly (Soft Autumn or Dark Winter)?

Soft Autumn colours are muted and warm, whereas the Dark Winter season is cool and bright. ✨

How did we determine Molly was a Dark Winter?
→ Ensured her chin looked defined. (hard to see at this angle)
→ Skin looks vibrant and healthy versus tired and sallow.
→ You see the colour of her drapes and her natural features at the same time.
→ Her eyes sparkled and were in focus.
→ Skin pigment glowed versus looking too pinkish or pale.

If you follow Molly, you’ll know that she loves wearing pink as well as pastel colours.
Luckily, Dark Winter has a ton of beautiful pinks and pastels she can choose from.

So which season do you think looked BEST on Molly?
Let me know! 💬

Can you tell if Rose is a Soft Autumn or Dark Winter? ✨

The purpose of this reel is to showcase two contrasting seasons. Some shades from each season may not look too bad on a person. But, when we contrast that with your BEST colours, you can see the difference.

Here are some things we are looking for:
→ Does the colour make you look “tired” or vibrant? (we are aiming for vibrant!).
→ Are your eyes out of focus or sparkling and bright? (sparkling, bright and in focus is the goal).
→ Do your features (eyes, cheeks, lips) blend together or are they being elevated? (let your natural beauty shine).
→ Do we notice the colours first and then face second? (we want YOU and the colours to harmonize).
→ Is your chin blurred or defined? (defined is the goal).

Based on this, can you tell which season looks best on Rose?
Let me know if you think it’s Soft Autumn or Dark Winter! 💬
