What colors make you look healthier, younger and more vibrant? I use the highly individualized Color Alliance system of color analysis. This computer-assisted analysis is based not only on your color "season" but also on the specific colors of your skin, hair and eyes. The result is not one of four seasons, but one of approximately four million possible color combinations--nearly as unique as a fingerprint. Your personal color palette will provide you with flattering choices of clothing colors to benefit you throughout your life.
What will your palette look like?
There are 372 different Color Alliance names, but ten thousand times more possible palettes!
You have your choice of different palette styles. The first, more individualized palette is the Color Alliance Lifestyle Palette, shown above. This palette of forty colors is compact and comes in a handy zippered case. A foldout brochure explains the colors in more detail.
The Professional Palette is designed for the businessperson who needs a more conservative wardrobe. There is a greater emphasis on neutral shades appropriate for the workplace. Its forty colors are divided into four distinct groups. The men's palette includes Suits, Shirts, Ties, and Sports colors, while the women's divides into Basics, Lights, Basic Brights, and Accents. Each Professional Palette includes a useful guide with tips on wardrobe planning and choosing colors for their psychological impact.
During your color consultation, I will compare different color drapes to determine the warmth or coolness of your skin and will match coded color coordinates to your skin, hair and eyes to determine your unique color harmony. This computer-assisted process will result in your unique clothing color palette and personal recommendations for makeup colors. The optional complimentary makeup lesson results in a convincing "before and after" transformation.
Plan on about two hours for your individual consultation. Small group classes can also be arranged.
Signia (for Men or Women)
Discover the best clothing, accessories, eyeglasses and hair styles for your face and body shape. Learn how to enhance your best features, de-emphasize figure flaws, and add or minimize height and weight. Learn what clothing qualities to look for, and how to coordinate a versatile wardrobe. You will receive a personal guidebook written for you about you and a lesson to help you use it. Considered accurate for up to a 15% weight change.
Personal Style Expression
Choosing your best personal style is not only a matter of what you like to wear, but also what looks most like you. Your facial features, body lines and contours, your height and your preferences all help determine your best styles.
Style advisors offer from 4 to 10 categories in personal style with varying names and descriptions. We feel six choices give you enough variety, yet sufficient difference of expression, to be most helpful.
All styles stem from the Classic Personal Style Expression. It is a timeless look with tailored, simple lines. The Dramatic PSE is a stronger look with an exaggerated style. It is considered High Fashion. The Town & Country look is more casual with texture being added. The Romantic PSE is more feminine. Softer fabrics and added feminine details. The Natural PSE is more sporty. Scale down to medium texture. Delicate is more of an ingenue look. Scale down the patterns and add frill and lace.
Perhaps your best look is a combination of two of these styles. Find out how to make your wardrobe more interesting and in tune with you. Both are offered as individual consultations (see price list) or as small group classes.

It's a real challenge to pick out eyeglass frames if you can't see what you're doing. Even if you also wear contacts, you may find the assortment of frames at most opticians bewildering. Let me help you find the most flattering frame for your face and eye shape, coloring, and personality. To begin with, why not check out my videos on selecting eyeglasses?
Adolescent girls like to experiment with clothing and makeup with sometimes startling results. Why not start her off on the right foot with a color and makeup party for a few friends? A two-hour party is usually enough time for seasonal color analysis and a low-key, age-appropriate makeover lesson for four to six girls. It's a great idea for birthdays and graduations!
