Personal Colour Analysis

Reinvent yourself
with colour

It is so easy to choose the wrong colours for our clothes. Why? Because you don’t really know what your ideal colours are and you go with what’s in stores that season. Overtime you can get very disconnected from your best colours. You wonder why you don’t feel good in a lot of your clothes or you put them on and take them off again.

On average I find most people are wearing between 0 and 3 of their best colours. That means that most people are wearing colours that are working against them on a daily basis. As opposed to having access to 65 of your ideal colours through a 12 Season Personal Colour Analysis and feeling confident, comfortable, and radiant inside of colours that work for you.

After the transformation

Finally, a red dress!

Kathleen always wanted to own a red dress, but every time she tried one on, the colour didn’t look right on her. She had always assumed that she couldn’t wear red because she’s a ginger and stayed away from it in her wardrobe, much to her chagrin. Kathleen now knows which red is ideal for her, and she’s free and confident to have that red dress that she’s always wanted.

Wow, you!

Kathryn was initially uncomfortable wearing her “wow” lipstick because it was bolder than anything else she had ever tried. But once she sat with it for a few minutes, she acclimated to it. In fact, it’s now her go-to lipstick! Every time she puts it on, she feels elevated and beautiful.

Born to wear colour

Nancy was enthusiastic and giggling with delight when she saw her palette of beautiful colours that she loved. She couldn’t wait to go shopping. I found a fuchsia statement coat that was perfect for her colouring and scale, which she bought and wears every chance she gets. She feels like a million bucks in that coat, and everywhere she goes, people tell her how exquisite it is.

Beauty and confidence

After her Personal Colour Analysis, Jennifer had an absolute blast shopping in Mexico and sporting all her new colours confidently. And she felt incredibly validated and seen when the compliments started to roll in. Jennifer is looking beautiful and happy in her new colours, and she is a die-hard believer now in the power of colour.

The perfect red lipstick!

Erin wanted to go on a shopping spree and smartly invested in a Personal Colour Analysis before she did. She wasn’t wearing most of her best colours, and she was excited to try out some beautiful navy and reds once she saw how alive and beautiful they looked on her. And her “wow” lipstick was stunning on her. She laughingly said, “I might not ever take it off!”

Bold and bubbly

Szara wanted to add some colour to her black wardrobe because she could sense that there was a mood that her mostly black clothes were creating. Afterwards, she felt more beautiful and energetic in her colours. Now that she is clear about her ideal colours, Szara is more confident and at home, including some bold colours in her life. The more vibrant colours are a perfect match for Szara’s bubbly personality.

Q & A

1) What is a 12 Season Personal Colour Analysis?

This is a methodology based on 12 seasonal colour groups that include 65 of our best colours. It uses a draping method of comparison to eliminate colours that don’t work for you and to identify the season of colours that is ideal for you.

2) Who would benefit from Personal Colour Analysis?


Basically, anyone who wants to elevate how you look and feel would benefit. A Personal Colour Analysis will enhance your credibility and sophistication. Wearing your ideal colours will have you stand out in a sea of competition whether it’s at work or dating. Colour is the most critical element that will make or break your style. I recommend this as the first step in elevating your image.

3) Is Personal Colour Analysis an in-person service?


Yes, it is in person. I live in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

4) What if I’ve already had a Personal Colour Analysis?


If you’re not satisfied with your relationship to colours and you want to revisit Personal Colour Analysis, then I invite you to do so. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your Personal Colour Analysis and you want a refresher it can be a great pick-me-up to revisit it. Book your session with Joy here.

If you are already confident with your ability to navigate colours in your season, then I encourage you to consider Personal Image Analysis. Find out more about Personal Image Analysis here.

5) How much time should I plan to spend on my Personal Colour Analysis?


The length varies according to your questions and what you want to get out of it. I recommend that you plan for 4 hours and that you not plan anything right afterwards so that you’re in a position to take full advantage of the experience.

6) Does my colour palette change overtime?


Your colour palette typically stabilizes around 15 years of age. However, your best colours within your palette do change as your skin ages and your hair greys. Reviewing your Personal Colour Analysis can be very helpful in supporting you to continuously choose your ideal colours and to reinvent yourself over time as your skin and hair colours change.

7) How much does a Personal Colour Analysis cost?


For more information on pricing and availability, contact Joy here.

8) How do I book my Personal Colour Analysis?


For more information on pricing and availability, contact Joy here.

9) What do I need to know before my Personal Colour Analysis?


 You will be sent full instructions once you book your Personal Colour Analysis. Please come wearing NO makeup or plan to wash your face when you arrive. Allot yourself 3.5 hours so that you can be available to get the maximum value. Try not to plan anything right after your colour analysis in the event that you have more questions.

10) What if I don’t like the colours that Joy recommends?


The majority of people LOVE their colour palette and many experience a “coming home” and a familiarity with it – even if they haven’t been wearing those specific colours. That said, having a Personal Colour Analysis is a highly transformative experience and for some people it can be confronting. The reality is that most people are not dressing inside their colour palette and that can be unsettling at first. In this case, I recommend that you sit with your colour palette and give yourself the opportunity to embrace it gradually as you begin to have success with it.

11) What if my skin is tanned?


If your face is only lightly tanned, which is to be expected in the summer, it still works to have your Personal Colour Analysis. If your face is tanned more than a light amount, it will make it difficult to see your undertone and to give you an accurate analysis. In the case of a more than lightly tanned face, I suggest that you book your session 1 month out. Meanwhile, try to limit any further exposure to the sun. Book your session with Joy here.

12) What is the difference between a 4 Season and a 12 Season Personal Colour Analysis?


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.

Client love

"Before doing my Personal Colour Analysis and Personal Image Analysis with Joy, my closet was mostly black and grey with a little bit of blue. I was so afraid of buying colour and struggled with what would match and look good on me. Discovering the colours that work for me has been a complete game-changer. I'm having so much fun wearing bright colours (I'm a “Bright Spring”) and bright lipstick.

One of the surprising results has been that I've never been much of a shopper but during my recent extended stay in Mexico, I found myself finding fantastic outfits in stores because I'm confident with what colours and styles will work for me. I have friends and clients constantly commenting on how vibrant and good I look. Joy has definitely found her calling and is gifted at what she does."

Corporate and Grief Coach

"Before my Personal Image Analysis, I was always trying to guess what would look good on me. Sometimes I felt good about my choices and other times I felt unsure. During my Analysis, I could really identify with the styles that were best suited for my face and body and I could see myself comfortably wearing them.

I felt at home with the recommendations and I went out shopping the next day for a dress for my son’s wedding. I felt powerfully armed with what I needed to be successful. I found a dress I loved and bought it without any of my usual hesitation. My son’s wedding became even more special because of how beautiful, confident, and happy I felt. And the compliments didn’t hurt either! I feel much more confident now in my ability to create outfits that make the most of my unique features and that’s a BIG WIN!"

Dental Hygienist

"As a redhead with fair skin, before my Personal Colour Analysis, I typically didn’t wear much makeup. I’ve always wanted to have a few bold lipstick shades – especially a red. However, any ginger will know that finding the right shade of red in a sea of lipsticks is impossible! I’ve never been able to find “the right one,” and gave up years ago. In addition, I avoided shopping for clothes as much as possible, as I just find it overwhelming and generally discouraging.

During my Personal Colour Analysis, I learned that I am a “Dark Autumn.” I now have access to an entire rainbow of colours. What’s even more exciting is that I don’t have to waste time trying to figure out the right colours when I’m buying clothes; I can bring my swatch and know immediately if it’s a yes or a no.

Furthermore, during my PCA we discovered my PERFECT shade of red lipstick while wearing the perfect red drape! As soon as I put it on, it was an immediate transformation. Having my colours done has changed my relationship to how I present myself. This was an investment that will save me a TON of time, money, and mental energy for the rest of my life."

Naturopathic Doctor

"After Joy draped me in different hues, I could see the difference colours make. I could see when the colour was leading, when my face was leading, and when there was balance between my face and the colour. My face would light up when the right colour was draped around me.

I got insight into the array of colours that I am suited for and they’re the colours I like to wear. I also found some new colours to wear: forest green and aubergine. There was this one moment where I saw myself walking into a boardroom in a forest green pantsuit and it felt amazing!

I’ve been having fun experimenting with makeup since my analysis, too. It has simplified my makeup supplies as a result. It was a really fun experience. I highly recommend it."

Marketing Consultant

"I’ve always gravitated towards creams, blacks, greys and maybe a touch of dark blue. I went into the Personal Colour Analysis session not knowing what colours actually suited me and felt that this process would be the only way to know for sure. I was very excited to see what my colours would be!

Joy introduced the session with passion, enthusiasm, knowledge and confidence. Now I can say, without a doubt, that I am a Dark Winter. I can see how in some colours I can disappear but in my Dark Winter colours I come alive. Joy helped me see this in a way that I hadn’t seen before. It gives me an extra layer of confidence to know I’m wearing colours that make me look my best. This is the best thing you can do for yourself."

HR Administrator & Senior Project Accountant

"I wasn’t feeling great about my body before my Personal Image Analysis session. The last few purchases that I made didn’t look great on me and I told myself it was because of my body. After my appointment I understood that there was nothing wrong with my body; I was just not wearing the styles that are a match for the lines and shape of my body and I felt instantly relieved.

Joy opened my eyes to seeing how I can dress to feel like my best self. Understanding my body shape and what clothes flatter me brings ease and joy to the shopping experience. I now know why when I look in my closet and gravitate towards certain pieces that I feel confident and really great in, it's because I know that my shape is complimented. Thank you, Joy, for this new me!"
