About Jo

Jo Allen is an award-winning colour, style and image consultant.  Having trained initially with Europe’s leading image consultancy Colour Me Beautiful, she has also undertaken further professional training with a variety of other industry experts, including London College of Fashion, KLC School of Design, Arden Reece Color and Fashion Feng Shui International.  She is currently the only licensed Fashion Feng Shui® facilitator in Norfolk and is also a Director of the Federation of Image Professionals International (FIPI).

Her work includes offering image, colour and style 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 ‘fun’ 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 colour and style 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 and personal stylist. She is also a farmer’s wife and mother of two daughters, so brings a wealth of different experience to the advice she can offer to clients in her image consultancy role.

“I am passionate about helping women to look their best, and particularly enjoy working with older women.  I firmly believe that, when given the right personalised colour and style guidance, women can, regardless of their age or stage, learn to to feel and look their best through their clothes and to develop a style that is as individual as they are, and in which they feel fulfilled and empowered.   Using ‘tools’ I have a developed over the years and from training with a variety of industry experts, my aim is to show you how to build up a wardrobe of clothes that you love and feel great in, and which serve you well every day, whatever you are doing or wherever you are headed! 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.  Looking great is not the sole prerogative of youth!”

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, not just colour. 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.
