Hidden Gems: Meet Heather Hope of House of Colour

Today we’d like to introduce you to Heather Hope. 

Hi Heather, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I’ve recently marked 2 years as the Denver franchise owner for House of Colour, and a milestone of serving 300+ clients with our personal styling and image consulting services. I’m a Colorado native with 20+ years of PR and marketing experience, which I now translate into personal branding.

I love to celebrate my clients by showing them the colors in clothing and makeup that suit their natural coloring. And by helping clients develop a unique and enduring personal style that reflects their personality and honors their body architecture.

I discovered House of Colour services after I had my 2nd child and celebrated my 40th birthday. My body had changed after years of pregnancy, nursing, and sleep deprivation. I was blessed with two healthy and happy children (now almost age 5 and 7), but I also had new bags beneath my eyes and a closet full of ill-fitting and outdated clothing. I was attempting a “DIY” wardrobe redo when House of Colour found me. My experience was so positive and powerful that I wanted to share it!

I realized that—despite a lifetime of dressing myself each day, and thousands of dollars spent on clothing—I really didn’t understand the best colors and shapes to suit my natural coloring, personality, and body architecture. That all changed, thanks to House of Colour.

I’m thrilled to share the proven and transformative House of Colour methodology with my friends, neighbors, and professional contacts in Denver. I’m inspired to help them see themselves in a new light.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
My House of Colour business was closed to in-person clients for 1/4 of 2021, because of the global pandemic. Our color analysis process must be completed in-person and using natural vs artificial light.

Luckily the franchisor helped owners pivot to provide our in-depth style sessions online. We updated our online tools and visuals and rolled out a gorgeous new workbook to mail to clients, and actually benefited from being “in” client closets during the pandemic. Many said our services were a saving grace during a very dark time.

As we started to emerge from the 1st stage of the pandemic last spring, clients felt renewed confidence in our in-person color services and bookings really picked up. I’m seeing a lot of people who are tired of looking at themselves in online zoom meetings and want to refresh their look. They are ready for the color and style tools that will help amplify their beauty and make them feel more authentic and visible. Others have had changes like weight gain or more casual dress codes, and they need my help to navigate those issues. I think many of us are seeking to emerge from this time with renewed confidence and energy.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
House of Colour is a UK-based franchise that provides science-based color and style analysis services. We have been in business for 35 years in the UK and have grown exponentially in the US over the past 2-3 years, with 100+ franchise owners and associates based here.

Our brand has evolved to serve women and men alike. The process is transformative and our services give clients the tools to last a lifetime.

Color Analysis Service – A personal color analysis consultation is a 2-3 hour in-person service designed to discover and celebrate you, using a sophisticated process and principles of color science. House of Colour consultants use a time-tested color analysis process to discover your color palette. For women, we  match mineral powder and blush to your personal coloring, and then help you find your perfect lipsticks. This very personalized service is part of what we call the 90 Second Makeup miracle. You will leave with a palette of colors personalized to you and with a new confidence in yourself.

Personal Style Service – I’m here to help you discover your personal style. In this 5-hour online session, you will discover how both your body architecture and your personality inform the clothing styles and fits that will look best on you. These simple guidelines will unlock the mysteries of your closet and free you from style confusion. This life-changing session teaches you how to create a wardrobe that allows you to look your best every day. Using Carl Jung’s basic body archetypes, you will discover how your body architecture helps dictate what style of clothing will naturally look better on you. At House of Colour, we also take personality into account because authenticity is part of creating a wardrobe that reflects confidence, trustworthiness, authority, and beauty.

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
Yes! Too many to name!
#1 – Life is short and doesn’t go according to plan. We have less control than we think; we can control our attitude and response vs. the situations or challenges we face. I was so fortunate to have great business coaches and colleagues to help me navigate this crisis on the professional front.

#2 – Family and friends are the most critical. We must show up and bring our best selves to our relationships. I was also fortunate to have encouraging friends and the most amazing spouse and partner to help manage this uncertainty.
