Vanessa Bestwick has been instrumental in helping me know what works and doesn't work for my style and I cannot recommend her enough if you are looking to rediscover your style. I have zero fashion sense and her guidance has been critical for my confidence.
Abbie Ashfield I contacted Vanessa during lockdown as I was feeling a bit lost with my look, my clothes and just felt a bit blah. Vanessa has been amazing from start to finish, she has helped me understand what colours would compliment me the most, clothes and styles to suit my body shape as well as giving my wardrobe a full make over and all of this was done virtually. I can not thank Vanessa enough for helping me! I still struggle to choose what to wear but this is due to having too much choose and loving my clothes rather then figuring what will hide me the most. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!
Sharon Chapman 'I will admit I was a bit sceptical about a colour consultation, after all I'm nearly 50 so surely I know what colours suit me by now. However a session with Vanessa was well worth it. She showed me how different colours made me glow or made me fade. Colours I'd worn for years actually needed to be a tone lighter or warmer. It's transformed my shopping. I now carry my colour cards with me & have been buying colours I never thought I'd wear. I always thought I suited cool colours but I'm actually a warm & light with colour me beautiful. Vanessa even gave my make up an update as I had eye shadow I'd used from my teens still in my make up bag. I look healthier, brighter & I'm definitely more confident. I've always loathed clothes shopping but now I enjoy it so much more. I am confident in my choices now & buy clothes to last. I would highly recommend Vanessa. She is kind & considerate. You really feel she wants you to look the best you can and it was so much fun. We laughed a lot.'
Emily Deacon My parents paid for me to have my colour and style analysis done for my birthday! My mum and I spent the morning with Vanessa on Saturday and she has changed my perspective on everything. Before Saturday I really struggled and didn’t think about what I was wearing but now everywhere I go I’m thinking oh that would look nice on me or oh no that wouldn’t be right. I’ve wanted my colours done for years and now it’s done I’m so happy! I would recommend Vanessa to anyone. She is so lovely and welcoming. I was a bit nervous when we first arrived but she was so kind and made me feel so comfortable. Such a lovely girly time. Thank you for everything.
Sofia Fidler 'WANT TO FEEL CONFIDENT IN YOURSELF AND LOOK AMAZING?? THEN BOOK IN WITH VANESSA. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE! I visited Vanessa on a personal recommendation. I previously had both colour and image analysed over a 15 year period and decided I needed an update as I was approaching 50 and had changed my hair colour and lost weight. We sat and chatted with tea in Vanessa's lovely studio. She put me completely at ease throughout the whole process and listened to what I was looking to gain from the experience. It was enjoyable, fun and I learnt more about my body shape, skin tone and style and came away feeling empowered and confident. When I shop, I choose the right shape clothes for my frame according to the booklet Vanessa gave me for styles that suit and a swatch of colours, primary, secondary and tertiary that help me choose clothing so much easier!! I also don't make financial mistakes with buying the wrong clothes! Thank you Vanessa x'
Aly Stott 'Vanessa is a lovely, warm lady who clearly wants women to feel great about themselves. She took her time showing me how to make my colours work for me especially as I don't like my palette very much. I left feeling better equipped to put outfits together in a way that suits my colouring. It was great fun spending time with Vanessa doing this. I'd highly recommend her.'
Beckie Hamilton 'Just had my colour analysis and make up done by the lovely Vanessa Bestwick. What a fabulous couple of hours spent in a friendly but professional environment with a lady who definitely knows her stuff. I came away inspired to make a couple of little useful tweaks and excited to go clothes shopping. I absolutely love my colour pallet. I can personally highly recommend Vanessa. Go ahead ladies and treat yourself - it is well worth it x'
Beckie's mum also came along to have colour analysis and personal styling in celebration of her 80th Birthday and we had a fabulous time. Colours, make-up, clothing, flowers, lunch, cake and lot's of laughing and smiling. Oh a a glass of bubbles!
Michelle Leonard I had a colour consultation last week with Vanessa and was amazed at how much I learned. The whole session was so interesting and I felt really pampered after my full make up application. The colour analysis is so thorough, I feel really inspired, It’s really motivated me to try new colours. There are so many colour combinations for me to wear ones I would never have thought would suite me and some colours I have worn for years that really did nothing for me. The right colours really do make you look healthier and younger. The make up is fabulous and really transforms me. I’ve booked my style consultation and I can’t wait. It’s all so refreshing and time just for me.
Judy Kale 'I have known Vanessa for many years, going back to the days of when she was an aerobics instructor. I had always wanted by colour done, so finding out Vanessa had become a stylist, and knowing she is highly qualified and very professional, I jumped at the chance to book with her. Having my colours done with Vanessa was brilliant. I learnt my dominant, secondary and tertiary colours and received my personalised colour wallet which stays in my handbag for shopping. I also had a style consultation, where I really enjoyed learning how to dress to suit my body shape, how to make my legs look longer and how different clothes can bring out your best bits and disguise areas your not so fond off! The clothing critique was really useful. Both consultations were fun and I asked lots of questions, Vanessa being so friendly made me feel totally relaxed. Vanessa is a natural and so knowledgeable and her studio is the perfect setting. I loved every moment!' I would highly recommend her.'
Sarah Austin 'I had a fabulous 2 hours with Vanessa. She took such time and patience to really look at all the different options and what suited me. I was quite shocked by some of the results but when she showed me the colours that worked I was blown away by some of the subtle differences and what impact they had. She was extremely professional but made me feel comfortable and relaxed and her studio was a perfect environment to spend the morning in. The makeover was a real pamper session and I learned such a lot. A fabulous experience all round.'
Emma Howes 'I had such a great time, Vanessa was warm and friendly and so, so helpful, and I left feeling amazing! I had a colouring and a style advice appointment. She told me what colours suited me and then did my makeup according to what would looks best on me, and I left looking beautiful! Would definitely recommend.'
Louise Bradley 'A massive thank you to Vanessa for my colour consultation a couple of weeks ago. She was so generous with her time and expertise I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone. I was seeking a little direction on colours and styles suited to my skin tone and lifestyle - I feel Vanessa got it spot on and I’m having compliments on my new pieces I’ve purchased since my consultation.'
Wendy Curtis I had a fantastic time having my colours done by Vanessa. She has a natural talent for this and is so knowledgeable. She showed me the best colours to wear and which ones to avoid and taught me how to use my colour palette to create nice outfits. We discussed my wardrobe and how use my colours to create a capsule wardrobe. Vanessa really took her time to explain everything to me in detail and answered any questions. Her studio is lovely and conveniently located in the town centre. I’m thrilled with my colour palette which I keep in my handbag to take shopping. This was such a fun and interesting experience. I wish I’d done it years go! Best money I’ve spent in a long time. I can’t recommend Vanessa’s services enough.
