About Jo

DU9A7775_EDIT_CropJo Allen is an award-winning style and image consultant, having trained with Europe’s leading image consultancy Colour Me Beautiful, and is currently a Director of the Federation of Image Professionals International (FIPI).   She is also training to become a Fashion Feng Shui® licensed facilitator.

Her work includes giving advice to individuals and groups, in-store promotional and training work for retail businesses, as well as talks and presentations to business, clubs and networking groups. She has been a contributor to BBC Radio Norfolk and had articles published in the Eastern Daily Press, EDP Norfolk magazine, ‘Coastal’ magazine, KL magazine, ‘Take One’ magazine and ‘Best of Norfolk’. Additional commitments have included judging the ‘Heavenly Hats’ competition at the Royal Norfolk Show and appearing in the CMB book ‘Colour Me Younger’!

Prior to training as a style and image consultant, Jo spent several years working as a Senior PA/Secretary in both the private and public sector. Having completed a Business Studies degree in 1997 as a ‘mature’ student(!), she spent some time looking for the right business opportunity and has never looked back on her decision to retrain as an image consultant. She is also a farmer’s wife and mother of two teenagers, so brings a wealth of different experience to the advice she can offer to clients in her image consultancy role.

“I strive to show you how easy it is, when given the releant personalised colour and style guidance, to feel and look your best and to develop a style that is authentic and individual to you, so that you build up a wardrobe of clothes that you love and feel great in, and which serve you well every day! Whatever your motivation, wherever you are on your ‘style journey’, developing the confidence that comes from knowing you look good yields so many benefits. My aim is to make the process fun, relaxed and relevant, for real women leading real lives, regardless of age, stage, size, shape or budget!”

Colour Me Beautiful is Europe’s leading style and image consultancy, recognised as pioneers and innovators in the field of colour analysis. In 2005 Colour Me Beautiful ripped up the old ‘four seasons’ colour analysis method and created a more sophisticated approach that encompasses every aspect of your personal image. Over 1 million people and organisations have turned to Colour Me Beautiful consultants for advice on how to get the image they really want since the company started in 1983. Colour Me Beautiful has formed commercial partnerships with such names as Wallis, Marks & Spencer, AstraZeneca and Peugeot.
