Why Choose True Colours

Choosing an image consultant is a big decision whether it’s for yourself, a gift or for your business. You need to trust them and be confident they’ll do what they say. Here are 8 reasons why you can choose us and know you won’t be disappointed:

1. Worldclass Expertise – you can trust

We are a team of 3 highly trained, professional image specialists including two Masters of the Federation of Image Professionals International –  which is the most rigorous image qualification worldwide.

We all do colour and style sessions and also specialise in different areas: Jane Chapman is our business and men’s image specialist; Adelle Aderhold is our make-up and bridal specialist; and Jane Fardon is a respected trainer of image consultants.

2. We work from our hearts, not just with our heads – you’ll notice the difference

We all have so much more going for us than we realise and part of our job is to help you see how fantastic you can look. We want each of our clients to enjoy being who they are. Wearing colours and clothes that help us look and feel good is a key part of that.

True Colours is much more than just a business, or job we do to pay the bills. We love what we do and bring a special level of care and commitment to each session that comes with working from our hearts, not just our heads.  You’ll see the difference this makes to your session.

3. Experience – you can draw on

Some things you only learn from experience and we’ve got a total of over 30 years spent in image consultancy. Plus, we’ve each come into image consultancy because we’ve been there and have our own stories to tell.  So we empathise with your clothing dilemmas and know that there is always a solution because we’ve seen it work ourselves.

4. Over 90% of clients come via personal recommendation – so you can be confident

That’s the best endorsement any business can have!  Since we opened in 2005 we’ve helped over 2000 men and women dress in ways that bring out the very best in them. Click here to read testimonials.

5. Longterm customer service and support – we’re with you for the journey

We look after you like we would want to be looked after ourselves!  We stay in touch through follow up calls and newsletters, and are always happy to answer questions as you put your new skills to work.

Three times a year we hold free events for clients and friends with drinks and nibbles and a short talk. Plus we have Open Studio one Saturday morning each month, when you can drop in for coffee and a bit of advice.

6. Excellent value, in-depth consultations

We don’t just “scratch the surface.” Each of our sessions is carefully designed to give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to go away and do it for yourself. They are so thorough that you’ll never have to repeat them.

We include all the detailed information you need and then summarise this into key personal colour and dress principles for you to use every day. You can relax about how you’ll remember everything covered because we provide top quality supporting materials and colour wallets too.

Here’s an example to show how thorough our sessions are compared to those of other image consultants – our 1to1 shape and style consultation contains what some others cover in three different sessions, and ours lasts around 5 hours compared with only 2 hours with one of the large national companies!

7. Flexibility – you choose what’s best for you

We are an independent image consultancy which means we can be flexible, innovative, and client focussed in how we work. You can choose what’s best for you:

What – choose from our menu of services or ask about a bespoke session.

Who – we discuss your needs with you and agree which consultant will be best for you.

When – we’re open Monday to Saturday, daytime and some evenings.

How – we offer 1to1, small group sessions of 2 or 3 (where you book together), or larger workshops, events and training sessions.

Where – We usually see you at our S10 Studio, but if you need us to, we’ll come to you. We’re also happy to deliver in-house training and workshops.

8. A very special experience – your session will be a real treat

We respect the trust you place in us and always work in a positive, sensitive and relaxed way – so that you feel at ease and really enjoy your time with us.  You’ll enjoy our large, contemporary Studio in Broomhill, S10 and be treated to lovely refreshments during your session. We want you to leave feeling inspired, encouraged and special.
