Let me introduce myself, I’m Kim Bolsover, with over 35 years experience as a consultant, trainer, coach, and mentor to image consultants and business owners worldwide. Over 35 years? What a frightening thought! I’ve been working with colour & style since 1980 and back in those glory days, we were pioneers in a new industry and none of us had much of a clue as to what we were doing.
I was bored to tears at my day job in the computer industry and answered an advert in the local newspaper looking for ladies to sell skin care and colour-coded make-up. At the time, I had no idea what colour-coded make-up was but it sounded interesting enough to make the call.Read more
So what is image colour & style really about? It’s about confidence. No-one comes to you just for colour or style. They’re coming for confidence – the confidence to look good and feel better about themselves. Colour is just one of a number of tools that you will use to help them achieve their goals. It’s about building up your client’s self-esteem and confidence; creating a rapport with your client so that she trusts you and the advice you dispense; feeding your soul, your own satisfaction with a job well done.Read more
The colour personalities – Spring-linked, Summer-linked, and so on, are based on psychological profiling methods taken directly from Carl Jung, Myers-Briggs and Keirsey. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. If you’re really interested, then read ‘Gifts Differing’ by Isabel Briggs Myers. Her description of the difference between introverts and extraverts totally saved me from impending brain failure and helped me understand my own personality!
Style personality is totally from the world of image and colour, although before Scott Cornwall sends me a grumpy email, I need to include the world of hair here too! There are loads of different approaches around and I have used virtually all of them over the years. At one time, we had about 73,000. Well, it certainly seemed like it at the time! The problem is that the more ‘types’ there are, the more chance your client’s eyes will glaze over as you blether on describing each one.Read more
You are your unique selling proposition, after all, no-one comes to you for colour or style; they’re coming for confidence. They could just as easily go to Ermentrude down the road for colour analysis, and to Brunhilde for style, but if they choose to come to you, it will be because they relate to YOU and your personality.Read more
