What is a Personal Colour Analysis?
A personal colour analysis is a methodology used, based on 12 season* (yes, 12!) colour groups that will help you determine the best colours you want to be wearing to look, feel, and emote your best!
A personal colour analysis really helps you figure out what colors make you look radiant, feel happy, and perform more confidently in anything you do.
During your lengthy session, we will utilize a draping method of comparison to eliminate colours that don’t work for you and to identify the season of colours that are ideal for you. You will learn a lot along the way during this process as well!
Once we go through this extensive draping method and education on the process, then we spend time on how to use your new colour palette for success with make-up, clothing choices, shopping tendencies, mixing and matching, etc.
We will end with a Q&A session where you feel educated, empowered, and ready to tackle colours in your life with new energy and confidence!
A personal colour analysis is more than just finding your colours. It’s finding your confidence, your sparkle, your inner glow through your colours, which in turn offers such benefits as:
- Looking younger and more radiant
- Looking slimmer with more defined features
- Looking comfortable and more yourself
- Looking capable, confident, and credible
- Looking stylish and elegant

*It was very popular in the 70’s and 80’s to do a 4 Season Personal Colour Analysis. However, over time it became clear that only about 25% of the population identified with one of the 4 seasons, so a 12 Season System was created to be more accurate and inclusive in the approach to Colour Analysis.
Which service do you recommend starting with?
This is a great question and one I receive often.
If you haven’t had either a colour or personal image analysis, I recommend starting with your colour analysis.
The colours that we wear are so impactful, that it accounts for about 80% of our style. A beautiful and expensive outfit that flatters your body, will still look terrible if the colour doesn’t work for you.
My clients find the most success and value when completing their colour analysis prior to their image analysis.
Interested in purchasing both services?
That’s great, and a common choice! We do offer price breaks for purchasing both services.
How long is a session?
An image or colour analysis is more about the experience you receive than it is about the time on the clock.
The length varies according to your questions and what you want to get out of it. You aren’t rushed out the door after a certain time. I’m here for you to maximize the most out of your session.
That being said, I recommend clients plan for 3 – 3.5 hours for their personal colour analysis and 2 hours for their personal image analysis.
What type of clients do you work with?
I often work with these types of clients on their colour or image:
- Corporate women or men looking to improve their professional wardrobe.
- Women or men re-entering the dating scene and wanting to freshen their look.
- Women in their 40s+ who feel they gravitated to the same styles and colors in the last 20 years.
- Those going gray who want to look current and refreshed wearing your best colours. Gray hair doesn’t have to be aging when you’re wearing colours that you rock!
- Savvy shoppers who are excited at the notion of spending both less time and less money finding what looks good.
- Influencers and on-camera personalities who want to look their best.
- Those who had a four-season colour analysis done years ago, who don’t feel empowered or informed by that process.
- Individuals who are simply curious and want to see what’s possible for them.
- Adults who have set goals for their professional or romantic lives and want to use colour to their advantage in achieving those goals.
Are your services in-person or online?
It depends on the service. All in-person services are available in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

A personal colour analysis is in-person only.
However, once you’ve had a personal colour analysis, I do offer follow-up consultations at an hourly rate for both in-person or virtual sessions.
Personal Image Analysis
A personal image analysis is an online service conducted through a private zoom meeting.
Closet Concierge Services
This is available as an in-person service only.

Does a colour palette change over time?
What if I have a deep sun tan?
What is your cancellation policy
We understand that sometimes life can get in the way and that an analysis may need to be cancelled or rescheduled.
An analysis may be cancelled up to 24 hours prior, with 0% balance due.
However, if cancelling without the intent to re-schedule less than 24 hours prior to service, a $50 cancellation fee is required.
Thrive in the world
The work I do is not just about colour and style – it’s about empowering you to have access to your best self and best life.
The smart shopper
My system for colour and style provides complete clarity about what works and doesn’t work, right down to the details.
Be your own version of beautiful
True style arises when our clothes are a natural and authentic expression of ourselves. When our inside and our outside match there is harmony, power, and freedom.
Dare to go after your dreams
Some of the best and most courageous actions taken arise on days you feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful. I strive for this every day.
Learn, grow, and live your best life
When we are expanding we naturally open doors that were previously closed. I try to live my life full of aliveness and expansion in all ways.
