What Some of my Clients Say About Me:

 

 

Creating powerful first impressions and assisting clients in attaining their personal and professional goals is what I am most proud of in my work, but don’t just take my word for it, read what my clients say about me (Most Recent Clients First): 

"For years I have pondered over many fashion dilemmas. What colours do I suit, how do I put a smart casual outfit together, is it fashionable to have a different coloured bag than shoes? to mention but a few. Well thanks to my wonderful afternoon at style me flawless I have all the answers. My apprehension beforehand was quickly diminished as soon as Numba welcomed me inside. I had a fabulous afternoon discovering how easy being fashionable can be. I now know all about colours and what works best for me. Numba made me feel very special and shared many fashion tips that can easily be put into practice to make a difference to my wardrobe. My daughter gave this to me as a lovely gift, however I totally recommend this as a treat for anyone at any age. It will transform the way you look at clothes and colours. Thank you Numba."

"Dear Numba

I have been having a major trying on session this evening & having such fun mixing & matching! Loving all my new clothes. Lots of approving noises from the family I am glad to say!  Thank you for a fantastic shopping experience yesterday. You were so relaxing & fun to shop with & you're SO good at your job! 

I have definitely learnt huge amounts over my two days with you & feel quite the new me!!" 

Sam G- Peebles,  Peebles

Personalised Package (Style + Colour + Personal Shopping + Hairstyle + Make-Up Consultation)

"I recently attended the eagle package consultation with Numba and it was brilliant! Numba is an extremely friendly and knowledgeable stylist. I learned so much and really appreciated the well thought out approach of the day.


The shopping part was very enjoyable and I came away with a great range of items for my wardrobe. When I returned home, I went through my current wardrobe and was able to follow the principles Numba taught me and pick out items that hadn't really worn before to create an outfit that I loved.


I was quite taken aback and it made me realise that I'm very glad I chose to do this now. I now see that the benefits of dressing stylishly at any size. So thank you Numba, so much for your help. It's made a real difference to my confidence and my outlook of my weight."

"I just wanted to say thank you for my consultation yesterday. I really enjoyed it  and you made me feel completely at ease. The content was brilliant and I now have a clear way forward. Today, I decimated my current wardrobe (for the better!) and have already begun to think through my outfits based on your consultation. Of course, that will now involve shopping with more focus and ensuring I invest in items that enhance me rather than detract from me. Thank you."

Keith M- St Andrews, Scotland

"I recently attended the 'Peacock Package' with Numba for a colour consultation, style consultation and make up advice.  It was absolutely brilliant!!  I have learned so much about the colours that suit me, how to build colour into an outfit, including the use of accessories.  The style element of the session was very helpful and I learned a lot about the right clothes to wear for my body shape.  From the make up session, I have learned how to use make up to enhance features and create a polished look.  Numba explained the 'theory' very well whilst also providing lots of practical advice and examples of colours and clothing that would work for me.  I now feel I have the knowledge to make better choices and build a stylish wardrobe!  Many thanks Numba for your fantastic advice and for a really fun day."

Zoe R- St Andrews, Scotland

"Hi Numba, thanks for a great day – I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and have been re-invigorated about my clothes, my style and even a wee bit of make-up.  It was just the boost that I needed!

The bags of weeded clothes have gone to the charity shop and recycling, and the remaining pile is waiting for me to get organised with getting it on eBay.

I had a short wander round some shops and was amazed at how my approach has changed – there were rails and rails that I didn’t even bother looking at because they were the wrong colour or not the focus of my shopping list.  I’m on a mission to find a great navy blazer and after trying on some coloured jeans in M&S – wrong colour though - I have bought the same in purple on-line.

Thanks again, I need lots of practice but it is great to find that clothes have become fun again! Best wishes"

"I’ve wanted to do this for so long and I’m really pleased I found you. I learnt a LOT and you totally blew my perceptions of what suited me out of the water. Colours and a style I would never have thought would have suited me! I’m excited to try on my new wardrobe and take all the advice you’ve given me to put outfits together. I’m even looking forward to going shopping for clothes to see if I can take my new found knowledge out and about. I enjoyed the whole day of learning and then heading into Glasgow to go shopping. And the fun of getting really good sale deals! I usually avoid sales. 

Numba was really friendly and easy going which made the day more enjoyable. Thanks so much Numba!"

"Thank you very much for the styling session last week, I really enjoyed it and it cleared up a lot of things.I went for a little shopping and also shopped online and it’s interesting to see how it changed my perspective on certain items. I noticed some clothes or scarfs that came in different shades - Knowing my personal shades was very interesting and offered less choices for me to make. I look forward to spring and summer and how I will shop differently for those seasons as well.

"I was a 52 year o/d menopausal woman who was stuck in a style rut!

Working from home had made me very lazy and I was wearing work out gear almost every day. I had a wardrobe full of clothes but was incapable of putting an outfit together and was a slave to wearing black. I loved my session with Numba- she has such a lovely manner and made me feel so at ease. Her approach to styling was so logical and easy to understand that I now look forward to shopping for clothes whereas before I loathed it as I just did not know where to start. Now I know what colours and styles to go for and feel so much more confident in my purchases. Numba has given me a new lease of life and renewed confidence. I can't recommend her service highly enough."

Catrina M - Glasgow

(Eagle Package- Style + Colour + Personal Shopping).

"Very pleased indeed with the complete Style Me Flawless (male) makeover package that I undertook recently, consisting of four very different (and enjoyable) sessions.  Numba Pinkerton, the Image Consultant, was friendly, informative, and extremely professional in all her dealings with me.  I particularly loved the personal shopping outing, out of which I emerged with virtually an entire wardrobe!  Numba suggested styles and colours I had never really considered (although some were perhaps already part of my existing wardrobe), and made me look at myself in a totally different light.

 

Now bearded (which has been greeted very positively by most of my friends and family), I have gained a lot more confidence in my ability to dress well and also what skin and hair products I should be using (and how) to make myself look as good and healthy as possible.  It's now up to me to continue with my set morning/evening regime, but I've certainly been pointed in the right direction.  Thank you, Numba!

Paul  K- Edinburgh

"Having long thought that the stylish gene had escaped me, I was immensely relieved to find myself in Numba's studio being assured that not only was it completely possible to look stylish but that it could actually be relatively simple! Numba has the perfect blend of being able to deliver lots of factual material whilst retaining a real warmth, gently guiding me away from a penchant for somewhat shapeless black tops! 

 

Now armed with some colour and style insight, I'm looking forward to shopping with confidence. I would thoroughly recommend the style day; it's given me some easy to follow steps and a toolkit I can refer back to. Numba has also been quick to respond in answering any questions that have cropped up post appointment which has been a real help. "

“I am living my new found freedom with clothes and style and my friends can’t believe I am the same person.

"Thanks so much for the session I really really enjoyed it, I just feel more confident shopping now. Straight after your session I was in Ireland on holidays and then travelling for work but this weekend I did a big wardrobe detox, your session really gave me the confidence to throw away clothes that just don't suit me. I also look at my wardrobe differently and can identify key pieces I'm missing. I'm also looking into buying some sports and hiking gear, when investing in things likes that its good to know what colours I can mix and match and what suits."

I" enjoyed our session enormously and still feel excited about all the things we discussed.  My hairdresser was delighted to hear that you had persuaded me to go blonder, and stage one is complete and lovely! I am searching out beautifully coloured clothes, which is not quite as easy as I would like, but I am getting there."

"Great to work with you. I'm getting on well , I've stuck to wearing the pendant and having scarves around my neck and that's going well so I think the whole nothing near my neck issue is fading :-) 

As for overall style - definitely a change - I am more confident mixing colours , remembering the mantra you taught me!

Hair is getting there , I've gone more wavy and it's just the frizz that's bugging me now . I bought the elasticizer product so we will see how that goes and I will check out other ways to dry my hair to get more style and less frizz."

“Working with luxury brands requires high expectations being met so when developing a unique induction programme for a discerning client with global positioning required the best team possible. Numba provided me with all the professionalism, expertise and polish I needed and much more.  A real positive resource that complemented my approach and vision.  Always enthusiastic, full of ideas and questions, great at understanding the brief.  She is also a great team player with the ability to think independently.  Her contribution to this project was exceptional and I am already looking forward to referring her services and using her again in future delivery teams for my clients.”  

 Victoria Russell, Management Consultant- 2016

 I have had the pleasure to work with Numba with corporate clients groups. In such events it's always most effective when people can witness a professional who believes in her work. Numba displays an elegant confidence as she runs her workshops. She has humour, insight and understanding and makes an impact on so many levels. I always enjoy seeing the results.

"As a man, my whole experience with Numba of Style Me Flawless was great. Great consultation, great connection, great day out and great lunch / chat. 100/100 result for me. Personal shopping went excellent, purchased lots of items in the city that compliment me perfectly. My confidence and style has improved immensely! I now walk into a shop and can see within seconds what colours suit me and what don’t, then I just walk out! or buy! I feel great walking down the street or driving my car seeing the new attention I never had before. I now have swagger, I now have my strut back! Being a real man with real style now makes such a difference and opens so many conversations now with anyone of any age, when out and about socially. I would highly recommend Style Me Flawless to anyone looking to make the best of their lifes! Numba is a “salt of the earth person” and is very friendly, I now have a friendship with her and can call her anytime when shopping which is great! Go for it!

"My consultation has really changed me! I now wear makeup every day and really do my eyes up. The green eyeliner trick is ace winner. I also bought proper make up brushes! With regards to my clothes, I had a huge clear out and also pairing stuff together that I would never have before but the biggest surprise is that my only purchase has been an orange top from Zara! I have stopped buying for the sake of buying... Today I have a 'sunny' blue scarf on with a faux fur coat jeans and a fitted grey top... I've also started looking in shops that I would never have done before! I'm feeling a bit more inspired by looks that I see and planning my Christmas wardrobe. Also bought costume jewellery big diamond stud earrings. They rock with short hair....About the hair... Have gone really really short and spikey! Been getting loads of compliments about it. I do feel very inspired!

"We organised a fashion and beauty event in October 2015 for our client Princes Square and recruited Numba Pinkerton to introduce the centre's shoppers to the art of colour matching. Numba hosted a number of one-to-one drop-in and booked sessions for shoppers, providing expert advice on what personal shades and styles to wear in autumn / winter 2015.

Numba was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about style and colour matching, and made shoppers feel welcome and at ease at their appointments. The event received a lot of positive feedback from shoppers, with many saying it had helped to boost their self-confidence. We would highly recommend Numba for similar events.”

“I have worked with Numba Pinkerton of “Style Me Flawless”, on a number of occasions.She runs a very successful business, is so professional and has a lovely way of attending to her clients, which is engaging and informative. We have used her services for Corporate Events, working with groups of ladies during events. One of our recent clients includes Investec (Glasgow and Edinburgh Offices).She was really easy to work with, knew her stuff and invested a lot of time in helping make sure the session was pitched right, given the diversity of the audience.

We have also booked her to work for us at Shopping Centres on our ‘Style Labs’, again she is the one always busy, as she immediately engages everyone with her approach. Numba makes everyone feel at ease and the shoppers always feel better about themselves and their self-confidence after speaking with her. Our Clients have been so impressed with her, that they asked us to re- book her for their other events. I look forward to working with Numba in the future.”

"The day-after report: Yesterday I had consultation with Numba and hair appointment with Ramilia. Today I went to my monthly yoga day with about 30 people. Firstly they didn't recognise me. Secondly EVERY SINGLE PERSON came to me to say how beautiful, sexy and gorgeous I looked!!! I have never ever heard so many compliments in such a short period of time in my life! They said my hair was lovely and the colour complemented my eyes. I feel fantastic, it boosted my confidence and you cannot imagine how grateful I am for all you have done ( and I was apprehensive about the proposed hair style, and, mainly, the colour! - unbelievable! ) Anyway, I told them about my appointments on Friday and my friends would love to give you a call. I Hope you don't mind me passing your details on. Wishing you all the best Very greatful Anita"I had a great holiday and dressed with far more confidence than I would have in the past - loving the shirts! Have cleared out a bunch of clothes from my wardrobe and am loving the new shampoo and conditioner.Next purchase will be shoes I think but may wait a few weeks before another spending spree! :-)Thanks again for your time. A life changing day!"

"When I returned from our 'shopping expedition' I was shattered. It had been a long but enjoyable day. I must confess I didn't feel particularly excited by them but this was probably more to do with how I was feeling physically. When I eventually got round to looking at what we had purchased, and to giving Paul the 'fashion show' of our purchases, I was pleasantly surprised at how things had turned out, and putting them all together as outfits worked well in almost every combination. Paul liked everything we had bought, and he thinks you've done a good job in trying to raise my image and make me look a bit more polished."

"I've been on a few shopping trips since our consultation. Oh my god I am seeing things so diifferently!

It has made me more picky as I want to get my colours right & not just buy something for the sake of it!

It's made a huge difference. I actually walk along the street looking at people's clothes shouting warm & cool in my head haha! I can't thank you enough! I really enjoyed spending time with you & have learned so much! You are very talented & I have been talking to anyone who will listen about it!"

"I cannot even begin to say how amazing the whole experience was. You are an amazing person and so skilled at what you do. You made me feel so comfortable and I absolutely loved every minute of my 2 day consultation with you. 
I have already put loads of it into action. I followed your expert advice for my hair and I've had no end of compliments and I'm now a convert to (the right) colour and skinny jeans in my wardrobe which I'm building up little by little. It's also given me the confidence to feel good about myself inside and out which is just what I had been hoping for.Basically it was one of the wisest investments in myself that I've made in years.I hope you're doing amazing and that your book is coming on. Best wishes!

"I have been quite excited with my new colours and I've been trying new  things out non stop! It's actually fun to see how some dark colors make me  look less pale and I'm working hard to give up on all the grey clothing I  have accumulated over the years :) I realised that dyeing my clothes has  solved me many situations where I love a piece of clothing but I now see  it's the wrong color for me!

I'm quite happy with  the off-whites, khakis and greens and to my great surprise also chocolate  brown is a new favorite. I even made a pinterest board to familiarize myself with the new colors. :)

Kirsi K-Edinburgh- Student

"I was slightly nervous having booked the ' Men's Hairstyle Consultation, Skincare & Grooming Package',  (initially I thought it was only hair & grooming) I was pleasantly surprised to learn that skincare was involved as well. Numba removed any nerves and doubts within seconds, she is both highly professional and extremely warm and inviting. I like many guys had the same haircut from about the age of 12 and was looking for a change. Numba helped identify many elements I hadn't considered (face-shape etc), and gave numerous products and styling advice. This was the same with the skincare and grooming, although I previous thought I had a good skincare routine, Numba proved I was sadly mistaken. She provides both profession advice and opinions to help inspire a sense of confidence in your new look. Would definitely recommend, the earlier the better."

"Thank you very much for yesterday, the girls seem to have enjoyed your consultation very much. They were already planning on a make up shopping trip for next Saturday.  They loved you… Thank you for making them at ease very quickly. Very best."

Sara S- Bishopbriggs

(Teen Make-up and Skincare Group Class for 3 teenage girls)

 

"I booked a full style and colour consultation as I was feeling that I had too many clothes and accessories that I never wore. I genuinely struggle to know what suits me so I have ended up buying things just because I like the pattern, etc. Numba showed me what colours make me look my best and the styles I should wear to flatter my shape. She also introduced me to make-up colours that I would never have thought to try, but that made me look a lot healthier and younger. I have since had the courage to de-clutter my wardrobe (three bin bags!) and have bought a few key pieces that I know will suit me. I feel a lot more comfortable and confident, and have a good idea what to avoid when shopping now. I know that meeting Numba will stop me from making bad decisions, wasting money, and feeling guilty. She's professional, friendly, helpful, and the after-care I received has also been useful. I recommend Numba to anyone who's stuck in a style-rut and needs a bit of a confidence boost. Thank you, Numba!"

"Since I have been wearing the colours and styles you recommended I have been asked on numerous occasions if I have changed my makeup as I look great. I have also been told I look really refreshed and no longer tired and although I do occasionally wear the odd black item I accessorise to lighten the look. 
Carol P- Glasgow (Style and Colour Consultation + Personal Shopping)

 

"I had a brilliant time. I learned so much about myself and what suited me. Numba is lovely and we had a great laugh. I would highly recommend the service and will consider doing a personal shopper experience. If you are not sure, just go for it and you will not be disappointed.Thank you so much Numba." 

Emma A- Glasgow

I had a colour, style and hairstyle consultation done today that I really enjoyed. To be able to see the difference wearing the right colours and styles made to my body shape was an eye opener. It has helped me understand what works for me, my body shape and lifestyle. Thanks Numba! The whole process was made fun as well because of Numba’s personality and viviciousness. I recommend a consult for those looking to simplify their wardrobe and get the best out of their clothes.

Diana A- Australia- Project Manager

I booked a Men’s Image Consultation and Personal Shopping experience. It was an awesome experience. Now I know how to choose and mix and match various clothing. I got rid of the trouble of  seeing huge amounts of clothing in a shop and not knowing what to choose. After the consultation, I bought many items of clothing and accessories, including a suit for my graduation ceremony. I wore the suit attending the ceremony and a smart casual outfit for going out later with friends. All my firnds said I had changed and looked very handsome! I would highly  recommend the service.

"I felt very comfortable with Numba and she firstly discussed what was going to take place. Putting together outfits was really good as I had not thought about it before and it takes be ages to decide what to wear! Going away with new ideas is very exciting. I am now looking forward to the new me!

"You are a true professional and covered many aspects that I will find useful and life-enhancing. Even in the couple of days I have been following your advice on colour and style, I have received many compliments and everyone says I am looking well."

Sue M- Edinburgh

"I completed the ‘Men’s Image Consultation (Style + Colour) + Half Day Personal Shopping Trip’ with Numba.  She has a very warm, sociable personality and created a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere, where I was made to feel totally at ease for the duration of our consultation.

The knowledge that Numba shared in the colour analysis session was very informative and allowed me to grasp a comprehensive understanding of the colours that suited me best and those that I should avoid in order to look fresh and youthful. The section on style was also very clear and tailored exactly to my needs. 

The personal shopping session afterwards was equally useful as I was able to put into practice immediately all of the information that I obtained on colour and style. Numba was able to guide me towards my recommended colours and the styles that suited my body type best. It was extremely beneficial as she was able to select styles that were well suited for me but I would not have selected on my own. All in all, it was an excellent session and one that I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone!"

Kern R- Aberdeen (Men’s Image Consultation (Style + Colour) + Half Day Personal Shopping)

 

"I would totally recommend the hair consultation with Numba. It was so helpful to have someone talk and advise me through what face shape I am, the right cut, the texture and type of my hair, the best colours and how to maintain my hair. Numba is just LOVELY and so knowledgeable. I felt completely at ease and feel that I have learned a lot which will help me advise my hairdresser to ensure the best cut for my face shape and colouring and my hair texture. I also hopefully know a bit more how to look after my hair and style it at home. I had a great time! If you are debating whether or not to have this consultation, just go for it - it's worth every penny!"

Lindsey- Edinburgh

(Hairstyle Consultation)

 

"My style and colour consultation was fantastic, Numba was great at  making me feel relaxed, she was so friendly and made it a very personal  experience for me. Before I left I had a good understanding of what I  had been doing wrong with both my style and colour. I then booked a  personal shopping day and couldn't wait to get started on my new  wardrobe, I was so excited!

Numba made my personal shopping day so enjoyable, she started of by  giving me a beautiful birthday card with a personal message. We set off  and before long I had various new items of clothing, some which I would  have said were completely out my comfort zone, but felt fabulous. We had  a lovely lunch while getting to know each other better. Numba had made  a list of what I needed, we reviewed this list and got to work again in  the afternoon. I wasn't exhausted like I am normally after a days  shopping, and I went home with lots of new clothes that I love, not  clothes that don't fit properly that I would end up taking back or would  lie in my wardrobe unworn.

I have so enjoyed wearing my new outfits and feel much slimmer, more  comfortable and much more stylish, I cant wait to book my next personal  shopping day with Numba, and I now have a new friend, " Your a Star  Numba!" someone who truly passionate about her work."

"I enjoyed the consultation session. It was eye opening and very interesting. Numba is friendly and makes it a very personal experience. I look forward to trying out my colour swatch when shopping. Thank you!

Liz- (Bride-to-be) Glasgow ( Style and Colour Consultation)

 

"I signed up for 5 sessions with Numba, covering everything from colour analysis, the styles of clothing that suit me best for my body shape, to hair, make-up and personal shopping.  The experience was a real education for me and one that will stay with me now throughout the rest of my clothes shopping days!  Knowing that Numba is also a model prior to my sessions, I felt slightly apprehensive prior to meeting up, as I know the reputations that some models can have!  My fears were put to rest however, as Numba is such a positive, friendly and outgoing person who is very easy to get along with.  Her infectious laugh and smile made the sessions an absolute pleasure.   Her knowledge of fashion, colours, make-up is excellent and I particularly enjoyed the personal shopping day.  Numba got me out of my comfort zone trying on new styles that I would never even consider before.  I also brought Numba along to a photoshoot of mine, for promo shots for my music website.  Numba got the styling spot on and the photos turned out incredibly well. I have already been recommending Numba to several friends of mine for her professional and fun approach, and believe a style consultation is something that every woman should have!

"It's hard to know where to start when speaking about my Personal Shopping experience with Numba. First of all it was very relaxed, pretty much as soon as we met each other I felt totally at ease and completely comfortable shopping with her. The experience was really pleasant even from the offset and I can say with total confidence all of the reviews on this website are completely true. Numba is extremely likeable and easy to work with; we chatted like friends the entire time. She seems to radiate a very calming and tranquil energy which is offset with this very strange combination of effervescence; it's really nice to be around. 

When it comes to the experience on a clothing basis it depends what the budget and brands are but personally I did really well for the money I had. Bags, accessories, nearly half a wardrobe of clothes haha! When going through the shops you start to get a little incling of the colours that suit you and stuff though if you were looking for complete knowledge on colours, shapes and prints then it's probably better to book a consultation and then the shopping experience. 

The experience for me really opened my eyes. Beforehand I would just walk into a shop and see clothes, nothing special really; but when I was shopping with Numba she noticed colours, prints, cuts- all the nuances of the pieces that I'd never even taken into account before and gradually I began to notice them too. Before I booked the shopping experience I wasn't sure if it was for me, I've never been the most 'girly' person in the world and shopping always seemed like a bother but this was so different from what I was used to. It was genuinely fun and really opened my eyes. 

My shopping habits and wardrobe habits have changed quite considerably since the experience, I actually enjoy picking out an outfit for the following day now. It's not just a case of throwing something on and walking out of the door. I feel good about myself. 

On the whole it was just a great day for me, we went at our own pace, did our own thing. We sat and had some lunch – which by the way wasn't awkward in the slightest and that's a big thing for me since I'm kind of shy around new people – we shopped, talked, laughed. It's something I would definately recommend not just for the shopping and real joy of it but for the company as well. A great, great day out! :)" 

Emma- Glasgow (Half Day Personal Shopping)

 

" I had a great day and learnt a lot. It has changed the way I dress going forward and the way I look at clothes. The consultation was very personal and geared to me and has taken the fear out of clothes shopping. I will better manage my wardrobe and definitely save money on clothes that I won’t wear. Looking after my skin going forward will save me when I am 40! I will definitely recommend it to others. Thanks!"

Andy- West End, Glasgow (Men's Image Consultation and Personal Shopping)

 

"I found the session informative and enlightening. I enjoyed learning how to combine styles, shapes and colours .Numba is passionate about her subject and was focused on getting the best information across to me, albeit online. I feel confident that I can work my image to my best advantage, witth all this knowledge.

I look forward to working with you again, for the long term."

Ekwy- London (Online Style and Colour Consultation)

 

"I met Numba a few weeks back for styling, colour, weeding and shopping. What an experience! It's taken me a few weeks to write this because I've been so busy shopping since - not bad for a woman who hated shopping before. Numba is a genius! Friendly, professional and knowledgeable. My confidence has been boosted, I find people are reacting more positively to me, my husband loves the new me and I look forward to opening the closet door and picking my outfit for the day. If you find yourself only wearing half of what you have and never feeling great in what you wear then hire Numba now! I've resolved to have Numba help me shop again when the wardrobe needs Autumn updating." 

Julie- Consultant, West End, Glasgow (Style and Colour Consultation, Wardrobe Weeding and Personal Shopping).

 

"An excellent service which delivered exactly what I was looking for and a bit more. Excellent advice and ended up with some great pieces and the knowledge that I can apply to my current wardrobe. Will be using again in the future and recommending to friends."

Clive- Edinburgh/ Australia (Image Consultation- Style, Colour & Personal shopping)

 

Nice, relaxed consultation and good interesting information. I feel that I have much more confidence going to the hairdresser and happier with my image.I would recommend the consultation, it was great fun and had some interesting suggestions."

Christine- Helensborough (Hairstyle Consultation)

 

"As a result of the consultation, I learnt what colours suit me,the clothes that complement my body shape and the styles that bring out the best in me.i enjoyed the colour consultation the best and hope to start making changes immediately. Other benefits of the consultation are thatit has increased my confidence and I now feel I can spend less time shopping and save lots of money!I would definitely recomend the consultations. Numba is professional and so into what she does." 

Mercy- Glasgow (Style & Colour Consultation)

 

"I really enjoyed the relaxed pace and discovering which styles, colours and shades are best for me. Having my make-up done and explained to me was really nice as I am always in a rush doing it in the mornings. In the future, I hope to be more selective about my outfits, be more thoughtful about my accessories and buy less on impulse. I have already taken my colour samples and colour wheel with me when I went shopping with my daughter! I would recommend the consultation, just to help someone like myself be more selective and thoughtful choosing outfits and clothes."

Dorothea- Ireland (Style & Colour Consultation + Make-up Lesson)

 

"Numba was fantastic. I found her very easy to communicate with and an inspiration! I learnt a lot from each session that would be important in everyday life. I found the training very enjoyable each and every time and looked forward to our next session.In terms of contect and quality, everything covered was necessary and I definitely wouldn't know what to do in my pageant without covering all the topics.  I would definitely recommend Numba as an Image Consultant. "

Laura- Image Consulting (Beauty Pageant Model)

 

“I have learnt a lot about which colours you should match and which colours suit my skin tone. I now feel that I am in a position where I can make informed purchases. The advice wasn't as restrictive as I thought it was going to be. The consultation made me actually think about what to wear and given me so many options as well as working with what I already have. If anyone is thinking about doing the consultation, they should go for it as it is more guidance based rather than rules and restrictions, plus Numba really understands each and every client which makes the whole experience very personal."

Richy-Glasgow (Men's Colour & Style Consultation + Personal Shopping)

 

Very positive on the wardrobe weeding and I look forward to the Glasgow shopping trip. It was also helpful to hear that my current wardrobe got a reasonable rating from Numba and that I had plenty of colour. I can now combine this with the suggested additions and therefore have a more comprehensive selection."

Flora- Edinburgh (Wardrobe Weeding Session)

 

I would say the colour and style consultation is a very beneficial and interesting consultation that comes with invaluable information about how to style and colour the clothes you wear. I had a very good experience, Numba was very informative and easy to work with. I tended to wear dark colours and high colloars which I now know doesn't suit my body type or colouring. I hope to change my overall styling to colours and clothing styles that better suit my body shape and personality.

 

The Wardrobe Weeding Session was very informative and clearly needed from the amount of clothes that did not suit me that were in my closet. It was a good experience to see how to pair outfits and how to combine colours and accesories.

Lisa- Aryshire (Colour Consultation, Style Consultation & Wardrobe Weeding Session)

 

"We all enjoyed the experience very much. It met or even surpassed our hopes which were centred around Kate having a one-off, very positive, confidence growing experience.  Regardless, the photoshoot was a memorable, pleasurable experience which left us with a buzz and a warm glow for the rest of the day!

 

Kate loves everything fashion and the day gave her a taste of a world she'd love to be part of. She had a great time and found her confidence boosted by the experience. Kate would certainly recommend the makeover photoshoot session."

Steve McKenna -WestKilbride- On Behalf of 13 year old Daughter Kate (Deluxe Photoshoot Makeover)

 

"Surprising! Better than I expected as far as colour is concerned! I enjoyed the attention and discovering what worked. Out of advice tailored to my ‘out of the ordinary’ style.  I wish I had done it many years ago in my youth (I’m 56) but live Numba says, it is never too late to learn. The advice on the styles in my magazine were particularly useful.”

Ann- Dennistoun, Glasgow (Style & Colour Consultation)

 

"Hi Numba, Just wanted to email and Thank You for the time you spend with my mum. Sounds like she really enjoyed herself! Lovely that she now speaks 'fashion' and we can communicate a whole lot better! She was telling me all about 'chunky necklaces' and the colours that suited her. I also saw photos of her makeup which looked stunning. What a difference! You are great at what you do! Really appreciate it! :-) "

Seonaid- Australia (Gift Voucher)

 

For me, it was very good and a very relaxed atmosphere to really hear and see what colours and styles work best according to my body shape. I always go shopping on my own and buy things that “I think” look good, but it was great to hear a different perspective from someone professional and see the difference it makes to the way I look. Overall, I will listen to your advice and start applying what I have learnt. Thank you so much. You are such a lovely, calm and relaxing person.

 Pinar- Glasgow (Style & Colour Analysis)

 

"I found Numba welcoming, relaxing, unrushed, thoughtful and perceptive. Very careful in considering all aspects of the consultation. Very professional. Numba's own appearance, choice of clothes and colours gives me the confidence to know that what she advised for me will be beautiful! "

Pauline McGowan- Milngavie (Hairstyle Consultation)

 

 

"I thoroughly enjoyed learning about types of makeup, the brushes and how to apply make up properly to achieve different effects. Prior to the session I did not have the confidence to even apply foundation! However,  I can now apply three different make up looks including the smoky eye effect. I have had many complements about my new makeup looks.”

Eimear- Glasgow West End  (Make-up Class)

 

"This Style Analysis and Colour Analysis session was very interesting. I learned a lot about my own body shape and about the right clothes, cuts and colours that suit me. Numba was very clear and the session was conducted in a relaxed atmosphere. I think Style Me Flawless are great at what they do. Thanks again for your time."

Barbara- Motherwell, North lanarkshire (Style Consultation, Colour Analysis & Wardrobe Weeding)

 

“I really enjoyed the sessions I had with you. The Style Analysis (and when we went into Glasgow for Personal Shopping) was really helpful, and I've used your tips since then. I might like the look of an item of clothing, but I now know what suits my body shape, so I am buying clothes that look good! "

"I've also had my hair cut - much shorter, a little below my ears, so it can be straightened (for work), or left natural (for weekends), and have had some golden streaks put into it. That in itself, other than feeling a lot cooler on the back of my neck, is far more of a fun hairstyle and feels more like me, rather than trying to look like someone else with long, thin hair.”

Lucy- Edinburgh (Style & Colour Analysis, Make-up class, Hairstyle Consultation, Make-up Class)

 

I found it a very interesting session, as I found out that certain colours would suit me that I'd never pick up on. It's been a very useful experience which will help on every shopping trip I make, as I now know what sort of styles and colours that suit me. I'm sure my mum will be booking a session soon as she feels she needs to find out her colour and style also. Thanks again!

"The consultation was very personal and geared to me and has taken the fear out of clothes shopping. I will better manage my wardrobe and definitely save money on clothes that I won’t wear. Looking after my skin going forward will save me when I am 40!"
 
Andy, Glasgow
 
"Personal Shopping was genuinely fun and really opened my eyes. 
My shopping habits and wardrobe habits have changed quite considerably since the experience, I actually enjoy picking out an outfit for the following day now. It's not just a case of throwing something on and walking out of the door. I feel good about myself."

"I feel a lot more comfortable and confident, and have a good idea what to avoid when shopping now. I know that meeting Numba will stop me from making bad decisions, wasting money, and feeling guilty. She's professional, friendly, helpful, and the after-care I received has also been useful. I recommend Numba to anyone who's stuck in a style-rut and needs a bit of a confidence boost. Thank you, Numba!"

Moira D, Glasgow
 
 
"I would totally recommend the hair consultation with Numba. It was so helpful to have someone talk and advise me through what face shape I am, the right cut, the texture and type of my hair, the best colours and how to maintain my hair. Numba is just LOVELY and so knowledgeable."
