What makes the Impression Strategies Institute different from all the rest? (watch video)

When it comes to Image, COLOR IS KEY. Sandy Dumont’s 30 years of research and experience has led to the Never Fail Image System®: the world’s first and only color analysis system that works every time – for all ages, all ethnicities and all personalities. You will become the finest Total Image Consultant possible, because you will learn everything about color and image from head to toe - and you'll be able to do image and fashion consulting for men and women. (See Before/After Photos)

If you want training to learn how to become an image consultant, you need to know that color is the cornerstone of image consulting. Most image consultant associations currently recommend several different color analysis systems that, in fact, conflict with one another.  More often than not, each system yields conflicting results for the same person!  Different systems rely on everything from eye color, eye patterns, and hair color to contrast or to personality to decide which season is best. All of these systems fail to yield consistent results from one image consultant to the next.  Some consultants even rely solely on “instinct” or “taste” without first mastering the all-important rules of color and line. Sandy’s ground-breaking discoveries in the field of image and color psychology provide consistent results. The Never Fail Image System® won’t just make perfect sense to you; it’ll make perfect sense to your clients. 

Unlike other systems, you will learn to truly “see” color and the effect it has on each client’s face, hair, and overall persona.  Sandy shows you step-by-step how to educate your clients – how to train their eyes as yours will be after this course – so that your client, not you, will decide which season fits best. Your clients will love you for giving them image advice they can trust and use from Day One, and The Never Fail Image System® guarantees that your client chooses the right color season the first time, every time (read here what a recent client of Sandy says)

"What I’ve learned in five days is priceless! Sandy Dumont’s eye for color is like no other, and her expertise in color is amazing! The training is informative, easy to understand and very logical. Sandy is professional, consistent and patient. Thank you, Sandy, for passing on your knowledge and for changing me from “dull” to “dynamic.”

LaVoria Price
ISI Graduate, Suffolk, Virginia

"Hands-on training for color can never be replaced by computers. Your training has been expertly developed with clear and concise detail. I was terrified that I would never understand color theory, but your step-by-step Never Fail™ method trained my eye so that I no longer fear color analysis. "

Pat Roland
ISI Graduate, Cedar Rapids, Iowa

"You are a true professional and in a class all by yourself. Everyone in this field claims to be an expert. You are, in fact, a master. There has not been one image consultant who has understood the true principals and concepts of color and color psychology."

Toy Tigani
ISI Graduate, Herndon, Virginia

"There is no other image consultant training that provides an artist's point of view to color, which is necessary to allow us to learn how important color is in creating a powerful personal presence. Having this foundation in color will allow me to serve my clients at a much higher level. Thank you for sharing your knowledge."

RoJean DeChantal
ISI Graduate, San Francisco, California

"This class - AND Sandy - was everything I expected AND MORE. The precision and expertise of the Never Fail Image System leaves nothing to chance or opinion. It's evident that Sandy's 30 years as an image consultant has been an evolution of study and research. Confidence in the system will be the keystone of my business. Thank you, Sandy, for your passion and perseverance."

Terry Myers Shuster
ISI Graduate, Cortland, Ohio

“Sandy Dumont’s diploma course provides the true hands-on lab for students to learn how to work with clients from beginning to end. I no longer fear color! I feel competent and confident! In her diploma course, Sandy taught me her totally unique color system. She empowered me to help future clients to find their true best seasonal color category with logic and reason without ever sabotaging their true persona- which is the true test of any image consultant!”

Bonnie Rogers
ISI Graduate, Charlottesville, Virginia

"Sandy, Thank you so much for teaching me the science of color. I’m so grateful that I trusted my instincts about you when choosing from so many other image consultants. Because of all the misleading information out there, I thought it would be difficult yet you made me realize it can be so simple with your system and expert training. I am so excited to share what I have learned from you with others.”
