What is Color Analysis?
You’ll see the difference instantly. That moment when a color lights up your face, makes your skin glow and your eyes brighten. A color analysis is the start of a deep, natural confidence that stays with you forever.
Knowing the color tones for your hair is information included in your analysis, as well as a make-up application including lipsticks that will look amazing on you, and a guide to finding your best colors in your favorite clothing stores.
About Your Appointment
We see clients in groups: organize with your friends, or request to be added to a warm, friendly, and informative session. You may also schedule an exclusive individual appointment.
It takes approximately one hour per person in the analysis class. House of Colour trainees receive the most thorough color analysis training available and run franchises throughout the world. All associates are trained the same way and provide the same excellent service to every client that walks through our doors.
Developing Personal Style
A separate service offered by our staff is Style Analysis. Through additional world class training from House of Colour, we are equipped to analyze your proportions, preferences, and personality to curate your custom Clothing Personality. This will open a world of possibilities when it comes to choosing patterns and prints, jewelry, silhouettes, hem lengths to put together outfits that accentuate your individuality and highlight all your best features (you have a A LOT, we will tell you all about them!)
Not only will you learn what looks best on you, but also you will take away information on putting together outfits for any work or casual environment. Do you need to show up with added authority to work? We teach you how! Do you want to look creative and approachable? We help with that, too! You will walk away with a guideline to curate your dream wardrobe, so putting together outfits for formal events, travel, and even lounge-wear will be effortless.
ABOUT HOUSE OF COLOUR
When you love your outfit and feel great about your appearance, you will radiate a confident that will help you thrive in your professional and home life!
House of Colour is a UK-based company, and our franchise in Des Moines opened in 2019. There are locations across the US, and if our Des Moines location does not work for you, please check here for a consultant near you. Our extensive training allows us to offer the most in depth color analysis process in the world. We do not use your eye color or hair color to determine your season, instead our precision dyed draping process reveals your undertones and where in our four palettes (called “seasons”) that you sit.
Once we know your season, we can guide you on all the things! Make-up, hair color, jewelry, and shopping guidelines are included in an appointment, you receive a wallet of swatches and book to help you implement what you’ve learned. Support is given through our exclusive follow-up process.
While fashions, trends and fads come and go, the theory of color remains based in science, logic and objectivity; enabling every client to take their individual WOW! colors and look and feel wonderful. Your confidence grows and the journey to empowerment begins!
OUR HOUSE OF COLOR STYLISTS
Our Des Moines team contains four color consultants, two of which are trained in offering our style services as well. In addition to that, we have on-going shopping and wardrobe declutter services will help you celebrate your closet and prepare you for any event that life sends your way.
When you come into Blend and Bright, you will be welcomed and guided to our House of Colour studio. We require color and style appointments to be made in advance. You can also reach out to your consultant to set up a time to drop-in for follow-up help with clothing or additional make-up purchases after your analysis.
PLEASE KNOW THAT WE WELCOME YOU AS YOU ARE AND CELEBRATE YOUR UNIQUE DESIGN.

Having her colors done has been life changing for Desiree. She hasn’t always loved shopping or style because coordinating her closet was overwhelming and did not come naturally. Since having her color and style analyzed with House of Colour, shopping is exciting and no longer a task! Desiree has gained a new confidence in herself and has never felt so good in her own skin.
This process has been such a blessing to her life, Desiree absolutely couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it with others in her community. Empowering men and women to feel their best and explore the world of COLOR like they never thought possible.

With a background in corporate leadership, Alexa began immediately applying what she learned during her color analysis to her business wardrobe. She found the process to be life changing! After wearing mostly black and gray for years, Alexa was blown away by the elevated boost in confidence she felt when she started wearing her Autumn palette. Now she’s the go-to-expert among her friends and family when it comes to House of Colour.
Alexa is responsible for advisor training and development at Northwestern Mutual, and loves her career. She’ll be seeing color analysis clients on the weekends, and some evenings to accommodate our growing demand for those time slots! Working alongside of Ally and attending House of Colour training has been a creative outlet for Alexa, and House of Colour is a dream bonus career! Her commitment to excellence and perfectionism- she’s an Enneagram 1 and offers coaching in all things Enneagram- make her the perfect addition to our team.
In her free time, Alexa loves being on the lake, attending concerts, being active, and spending time with her soon-to-be husband, Archie who has a chiropractor practice in the area.
Winter & Classic Ingenue
After researching the color analysis process, Amy decided to ask for the appointment as a gift. And what a gift it was! She finally understood why she didn’t love her wardrobe. To have the tools to focus on her best colors for everything she wear—from makeup to accessories—was truly life changing.
Amy feels SO blessed to share this gift and teach men and women about the joy of loving their colors! She added to her understanding by taking the style class a few months later—which completed her personal image transformation.
She highly encourages everyone that has their colors done to take the style class. Personal stylists have been seen as a luxury, but it is now more accessible than ever. Amy truly believes that color and style will save you time and money and make the daily ritual of dressing more of a joy!
Autumn & Natural Romantic
Twenty years ago, Naphtali found the beauty industry and it instantly became her passion! She started out as a make-up artist and then entered the hair industry. Naphtali has specialized in hair color and extensions for most of her career.
When she had her color analysis done, she was confident she knew what she was doing, especially when it came to analyzing people’s eyes, hair color and skin tone. But her own color analysis appointment showed her that there were many gaps in her own understanding of personal coloring. It truly blew Naphtali away when she saw the process with her own eyes.
When she saw how powerful, scientific, and extensive the House of Colour process was, she knew that day that she needed to learn EVERYTHING she possibly could about it!
Naphtali loves education and furthering her knowledge of ANYTHING about color. So far, she’s loved every minute of her experience with House of Colour and can’t wait to share it with all of you!

Katie is so excited to join our House of Colour staff. Being a self-proclaimed Neutral Lover, Katie realized the more she wore some of her bright Spring colors, the better she felt and the easier it was to get dressed! After knowing her style and seeing how that simplified life even further, Katie realized that she wanted to bring the life-changing process that House of Colour offers its clients to her friends and family here in Des Moines.
Growing up, Katie always loved fashion and cosmetology, she channelled her love for all things beautiful into a career as a photographer. Her clients knew they would show up to their photoshoots and leave with bright, cheerful images to stay with them throughout their lives (Katie has always taken our House of Colour Des Moines photos!) Now, as a House of Colour consultant, Katie is excited to translate her background in all things color and light into making clients feel wonderful during their color and style appointments! She will bring warmth and energy to every analysis.
Katie focuses on group style classes, but also excels in seeing clients for Color Analysis and then those on-going services that you’ve all been waiting for (in person shopping and wardrobe declutter)!
