Only one person can have there colour analysed at a time as it is an individual process, so you can watch each others session ( I personally find it fascinating) or you are free to use the studio to work on your own sewing project. When it’s your turn in the hot seat you will be asked to remove all make up (it’s best to come without any on to... read more
