Monmouthshire & Torfaen
I’m Siân, your Personal Image Consultant at House of Colour in Monmouthshire & Torfaen. I believe that everyone is uniquely beautiful and this should be celebrated and cherished. Everyone deserves to be appreciated and valued for being themselves.
What I do isn’t about following fashion and trends. It’s about helping you to express who you are with confidence and ease. Knowing what works and what doesn’t is enormously empowering and saves so much time and money because you’ll no longer buy clothes that don’t have a place in your wardrobe or on your body.

Look fantastic and feel great!

Get used to receiving compliments – you’ll be getting them all the time!
You’ll find information about all of my services below. If you have any questions at all, please get in touch.
The Transformational Experience
The key to unlocking your individual style formula is the combination of a personal style session, colour analysis and make-up tutorial. You can read more about the three elements below.
This is an exclusive one-to-one experience arranged to ensure you learn everything you need to know to put your individual style formula into practice. I tailor make this experience to suit your needs, and it can be delivered in one day or over an agreed number of sessions.
In your Personal Style session, we look at your body architecture and proportions to understand how to dress to accentuate your strengths and create those optical illusions around the bits you’re not so keen on.
We also make sure that you know how to express your personality through your clothes and accessories, so that your look is authentic and polished. This information helps you understand what style of garments to choose, how to wear them, and what fabrics and accessories to go for.
At the end of your consultation, you’ll have a personalised workbook with all the information you need to start creating a wardrobe that not only shows the world who you are but also works for your lifestyle. Go on to have a colour analysis session and you’ll have the complete picture.
Personal Style can be delivered virtually – please send me a message to discuss this option.
Understanding what colours suit you is the underlying secret to getting your clothing (and make-up) right. There is a whole palette of colours that suit you, bring you into focus and make you look amazing. Colours that draw out the right contrasts in your eye colour, your hair colour, your skin tone and so much more. This is what you learn in a Colour Analysis session. You’ll see for yourself the difference the right colours make.
At the end of the session, you’ll have all the information you need to start building your new colourful wardrobe. You’ll take away a leather wallet containing swatches of all the colours in your seasonal palette, as well as a personalised workbook containing everything you need.
Accurate colour analysis has to be completed in person, in natural daylight. I’ll welcome you to my Studio for your session.

Make-Up & Skincare
In this session you’ll discover the perfect natural skincare products to take care of your skin. You’ll also practice simple and effective make-up techniques encompassing both a daytime and evening look. You’ll take away a useful workbook capturing all the tips you learn throughout the session, as well as having the opportunity to purchase any of the products that you try.
The House of Colour make-up range is perfect. From foundation that is perfectly matched to your skin in natural daylight, to blusher, lipstick and eyeshadows that are the perfect colours for your seasonal palette and your skin. I use the Natural Elements skincare range, which is truly natural, 100% vegan organic skincare. All the products are designed to be as gentle as possible so you can keep your skin naturally beautiful.

If you find the thought of sorting through your wardrobe daunting or you just don’t know where to start for the best, help is available.
I’ll show you how to go shopping in your wardrobe to find the items that work perfectly with your personal style and colours. We’ll assess your wardrobe together and clear out what you don’t need to simplify your life and refresh your style.
We’ll also organise your wardrobe so you can effortlessly put together an outfit for whatever occasion you’ve got. It’s a great way to utilise what you already have. We’ll make a record of any new outfits and create a list of missing items as we go.
Whether you want some expert company when you go shopping with your new style and colour knowledge, or you’d like some advice on an outfit for a special occasion, then we can do it together.
The shopping experience takes place in Cardiff city centre and lasts up to three hours. This includes time for refreshments, as staying hydrated is really important to have an effective shopping trip.
We’ll have a chat before the trip to determine what you’re looking for and discuss your budget.
Not a fan of the shops? You don’t need to be. If you’d like to have some advice for online shopping, it’s no problem.
This service takes place in three sessions that cover: defining what you need; recommended shopping list; purchase review.
Once we have defined what you need, you will receive a tailor made a list of recommendations. Then it’s simple. You order what you like and when it arrives we will review it together to make sure it deserves its place in your wardrobe.
The sessions take place via Zoom.
Wearing the right colours from a young age really helps with self-esteem and confidence. Your colour season doesn’t change with age, so there is nothing to stop you from understanding your best colours early on.
Colour Analysis is available for children/teenagers, usually between the ages of 7 and 14. They will learn what colours they look amazing in and how to use this knowledge when they go shopping, whether mum is with them or not
If you had your colours analysed with House of Colour a while ago, why not consider booking a Colour Re-rate?
Whilst your season doesn’t change, how well each of your colours works for you may do as you get older.
We will take a fresh look at your colours and see how they work for you now.
If you’re looking for a special gift, then you’ve come to the right place. Not only will you be giving someone special the gift of style and colour, you’ll be giving them invaluable knowledge that lasts a lifetime.
This is also a great and unique way to give a corporate gift or individually recognise your employees for their contribution.
Personalised gift vouchers can be purchased for a particular session, or for a specified value to be used towards the session of the recipient’s choice.
