Testimonials

Niki completed the colour analysis with over 30 of the Wilkinson Sword team. Everyone got great value from the session and its great to see the positive impact Niki has made. I was delighted to confirm that I was an Autumn and its already made me think before I buy new clothes and my wardrobe is already looking more autumnal!!
"A positive impact on the Wilkinson Sword team"
Had a session with Niki in December and found it extremely useful to better understand which colours fit my look – every time I go shopping I take the colour booklet with me so I can pick clothes which suit my look. Would recommend this!
"I would recommend this "
Not just for women... as a man I really enjoyed the session, found it really interesting gaining deeper insights about myself (I’ve always liked people psychology type stuff), many of my favorite things actually match my winter palette anyway… even beyond clothes, i.e. cars, motorbikes, furnishings, etc. My wallet is not so keen on the fact that very few of my work shirts are the right colour!... but I guess my past view of them was that they were functional clothes and I wasn’t supposed to like them!
"Not just for women!!
Following Niki’s colour consultation with me, I took a good look at my wardrobe and had a massive clear out of items which frankly I never wore, simply because the colours did nothing to enhance my complexion! Now armed with my new colour swatch (I am a “Winter”) I can instantly rule out certain colours when shopping for clothes on line, in boutiques or department stores, thus making shopping for clothes so much easier and more successful than before. Niki’s colour guidance also extended to my makeup colours and again, I am now daring to wear lipstick and eyeshadow in colours I would never have tried before. Thank you Niki for your genuine, kind and caring guidance, I really am pleased with the results.

I had a lovely couple of hours having my colours and makeup done by Niki. I didn’t know what to expect but Niki made me feel at ease straight away. It has been great to find out which colours are best for my skin tone and it really makes me think when I’m out shopping now. The little swatch book is great as it is small enough to keep in your handbag! Thanks for a great experience Niki!

I recently had my colour,style and make up analysis done with Niki Hall. If you are looking to treat yourself or to get a gift for a friend I can really recommend the experience. It was very relaxing,fun and you definitely learn things to do with colour and shape to suit your skin tone and figure that you never thought of before. Niki explains everything in a way you’ll easily remember – You even get a report so you don’t forget. It will certainly make you want to experiment a bit more.Thank you Niki xx”

I had a style analysis session with Niki in January. Having had my colours done quite a few years ago it was good to confirm that I was choosing the right colours, but I was unsure about which styles suit me and why. Niki spent time looking at my body shape and proportions, as well as finding out about my lifestyle and what kind of clothes I like. We has a look at some of my clothes and Niki helped me understand why some suit me and some don’t (and funnily enough the ones that don’t suit me I don’t particularly like but have never understood why). After the session Niki produced a comprehensive personalised style guide with advice on clothes, shoes and accessories, as well as suggestions as to which shops might stock clothes that are my style. Niki is warm, friendly and made the session fun, and I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Took my 15 year old to have her colours done by Niki. It was a great experience and lovely to see her face lit up by the right colours. Although my daughter is still wearing a lot of the obligatory teenage black and grey she now knows what suits her and is much more aware what to wear when she wants to make a good impression.

I didn’t know much about it before I went and wasn’t sure what to expect. Niki was really thorough in her analysis and explained the whole process as we went through it. When I commented that I was surprised by the results, Niki took the time to go back through the swatches and reassure me. I couldn’t resist buying the ‘spring’ scarf to wear straight away! The makeup Niki used looked and felt great. It was a lovely, indulgent couple of hours that flew by. I can’t wait to hit the shops with my swatches! Thank you Niki.

I have very recently had my colours done by Niki, after several years of wanting them done! Niki made me feel completely at ease and explained how it all worked. After establishing what my colours are, I came away feeling much more confident in myself. I immediately sorted through my wardrobe and plan to have a big spending spree in the not too distant future. A very BIG thank you Niki.

Niki has kindly completed my colour analysis recently! It was a brilliant experience and the time flew by! It was a relaxing and fun session. Niki explains everything wonderfully. She really knows what brightens your skin tone and guides you in order to help you dress to the best of your best. I can’t wait for my personal shopping experience with her next! Thank you Niki xxx

Niki recently did both my colour and style and it was a fun, enabling and exciting experience. I learnt a lot and Niki made me feel good about myself all the way through. It was great for my self-confidence and I am now enjoying putting into practise her thoughts and clear, personally tailored advice. Shopping has become quicker and cheaper as I know exactly what will work before I get to the changing room. If you are thinking of finding about how to make more of yourself and want to enjoy the process then Niki is a great find.

I recently booked Niki to do a style analysis, wardrobe oomph & personal shopping experience. I had my colours done when I was a teenager, but Niki went through them to check they had been done correctly & remind me of the colours I should be wearing. I have been meaning to treat myself to this sort of experience for some time now, as always look into my wardrobe & feel I have nothing to wear, even though it is full of clothes!! I have found it even harder after becoming a mum & finding outfits that suit you, but also the lifestyle of being a mum as well as having a full-time job. During the wardrobe oomph, Niki discovered that whilst my wardrobe was quite full, it really was lacking most of the essentials!! We made a long list of items for our shopping experience & it was a long list!! Whilst I normally hate clothes shopping, the shopping experience was an absolute pleasure & I think I bought more in 1 day than I have over the last 10 years!! And I have the re-assurance that they all suit me & co-ordinate together. We mainly concentrated on my work wardrobe & I can honestly say, when I open my wardrobe now, I have the dilemma of which outfit to choose … a nice dilemma to have!! Not only that, my new outfits have made me feel much more confident going into presentations at work. Even my daughter, probably my biggest critic, said “can I borrow your new clothes, mummy!!”. Niki is so easy to get on with & I have enjoyed the entire experience & now feel much more confident when clothes shopping by myself. Would thoroughly recommend Niki to anyone who feels they have nothing to wear!! Thank you.

I was a very lucky lady to win a colour analysis via Facebook and have just had the most amazing morning with the lovely Niki. Such a lovely lady, she puts you at your ease, invites you into her home & then transforms your life, can’t say this enough. What a revelation… I’ve been wearing the wrong colours all my life! Who knew one shade of lilac/mauve/purple was different to another, & I thought I knew about colours. After a very leisurely morning of talking me through my colours & applying my make up, I felt I looked younger! No face lift involved. If you need a testament to what she achieved in a morning, when I came home my husband actually noticed a difference & commented on the lipstick, when do men ever notice your lipstick? And also said I should wear make up more often! Not quite sure about that bit! I can see there’s a big shopping spree on the cards. I really can’t recommend Niki enough, just sorry I talked too much, she had trouble getting the lipstick on!

I recently had my colours done, which I really enjoyed and found a complete revelation! I was not at all what I thought I would be and loved seeing how much better my face looked when the right colours were placed on me. No more hours of shopping and coming back with clothes that are not quite right for me and with the little colour swatch choosing colours has been made easier. Nicki is lovely and made me feel at ease, so apart from it being really interesting and very helpful, the experience itself was fun! I highly recommend it and will have style analysis done too.

Yesterday I went shopping with Niki. It was a great experience and so good to have a knowledgeable and friendly expert with me. Before we went she had asked me what I was particularly looking for and had spent time reviewing collections so that when we got there she knew where would be best to take me. One great bonus was I went to shops I have never been to before. I bought better things with more confidence than I ever have. There were several items that I would not have taken from the rail that when I tried them on were great. Thanks a lot Niki – a great shopping experience ( I never thought I’d say that!).

Many would go to see an image consultant for themselves. However, I decided to take my bridesmaids with me to help make my dream wedding a reality using colours and styles I like that are best suited for my girls! It may not be something you’d think of doing, but this has been a truly inspirational, fun filled girly day out. It’s a weight lifted knowing that my bridesmaids who are all different shapes and sizes will be happy, confident and comfortable in colours and styles best suited for them. Reassuringly, I know that my bridesmaids can now give me – the bride – as much attention as required on one of the biggest days of my life!!! happy bridesmaids makes a happy bride

I booked Niki for a colour session for my daughter Lucinda and myself as part of her 18th birthday present… a lovely mother daughter experience on her birthday! Niki welcomed us with a big cheery smile, birthday bunting and message on the mirror… a lovely touch making Lucinda feel special! We launched into the Style Hall process of colour matching which was fun and informative and was interrupted only by a tea break with a birthday cake…made by Niki..!! The colour experience was fascinating and Niki was aware that Lucinda is young and therefore will have her own ideas, but by showing her how the colours compared it was easy to see which tones were best on her. We both found the experience relaxed and informative, we came away with our swatches of colour Spring for me, Winter for Lucinda… and I hope it will save us a lot of time and money buying outfits which are ‘not quite right’. Niki’s personal touches made the afternoon special and I would recommend this bonding experience to any mother & child or indeed friends.
