Knowledge of colour and the ability to undertake a colour analysis session is a fantastic skill that can be used within your existing business or as the launch pad for your new style business.


Following your colour analysis training you will be able to offer in-depth colour analysis sessions with individuals and groups. Consequently, you will be able to guide your clients towards a selection of flattering colours to suit their natural colouring. Armed with this information, you could help them organise their wardrobe and take them shopping. You would also be able to offer guidance on accessories, make-up and hair colour.

Colour analysis is the recommended first step in any personal style consultation. This is because it quickly makes a big difference to both a client’s wardrobe and their self-esteem. They will start to receive compliments, because wearing a great colour will make them look younger and healthier. Colour analysis works for both men and women.

You could study just the Complete Colour Analysis Training Module, building a stand alone colour business or alternatively it could be part of your Image Professional Course.

We also offer a condensed option – the Essential Colour Analysis Training Module. This module is ideal if you want to be able to quickly analyse a client and add colour analysis skills to your existing hairdressing, fashion retailing, beauty therapy or personal styling business.
