Fettercairn resident, Hilary Hayes, is to step aside from House of Colour at the end of the summer.
However, she has now been joined by her successor, Rosee Elliott.
Rosee was introduced to clients at a sparkling afternoon tea held at the Raemoir Hotel, near Banchory, last Sunday.
The event involved a fashion show and also the official handover from Hilary to Rosee.
Hilary has been an image consultant for the past 12 years .
Working from her conservatory studio in Fettercairn, she will retire at the end of September.
Until then, the pair will continue to work together at the studio, offering a whole range of services.
