Personal Sylist / Colour & Makeup Consultant

My name is Helen Turnpenny and I am personal stylist and colour and make up consultant with Colour Me Beautiful, based at my studio in Hythe in the New Forest.

Helen Turnpenny - personal stylist in the New Forest and SouthamptonI always used to be in a complete fog about what suited me. I hated shopping because I never knew where to start and often came home with things that went into the wardrobe and stayed there!

I was given a colour consultation as a gift and it was a complete revelation. suddenly it became completely obvious why some colours looked great on me while others made me look ill. I left the consultation with my colour wallet and never looked back!

Since then I have loved being able to go shopping and knowing as soon as I go into the shop where to start looking! It has saved me so much in time, money and sanity!

I began to get a real insight into how wearing the right colours can change how you feel about yourself, and, after a professional career as a therapist and trainer within the NHS, I decided to have a complete change of direction and train as a personal stylist and colour and make-up consultant with Colour me Beautiful, the world's leading Image Consultants. The style component of the training was another revelation for me - and taught me how to help women make the best of the body they’ve got, rather than being dissatisfied with it, as many are.

The change was the best thing I ever did - I can't describe how lovely it is to have people leave my studio looking and feeling great, armed with the confidence and knowledge to look the best they can without spending a fortune.

I have two grown up daughters, and love working with clients of any age, so if you're looking for your best image for that new job interview, going to a special wedding, or just feel like treating yourself, then I would love to see you for a consultation.
