Who is Fran Muntz?



A Lifetime In The Beauty World 

Fran brings an extensive "total beauty" life time of experience in application, marketing, coaching and business management skills to Beauty for You. Fran started her Career as a hobby at the age of 15, when she enrolled in a deportment and modelling school in Invercargill NZ. This interest inspired her to train and qualify as a hair stylist, beautician and beauty therapist and finally to owning her own hair salon.

Her involvement in the Modelling School continued and as she loved it so much, at the age of 19 and just married, purchased the business and went on to establish 3 deportment and modelling schools in the South Island under the "Belda" banner, personally teaching deportment and modeling classes, developing attendee's to model agencies standards, fashion stylist and image consultants, plus beauty consultant trainers.

Her passion for colour also started here, so trained and qualified as a colour and style specialist, however while working with the system of the day, found that the process of giving the client a limited pre made up wallet of colours - within the 4 seasons of summer colours, winter colours, spring colours and autumn colours far too restrictive, so Fran went about designing and establishing her own personal colour analysis system "Belda Colours", to give clients a much broader personal palette of colours. 

Fran introduced to Belda additional beauty therapy services, colour and style analysis, plus consultancy training academy in colour analysis, wardrobe styling, makeup artistry, beauty care and beauty supplies and the quest began in earnest to develop every "Belda Girl" to be the best they could be and become their own stylist.

During this time and realizing the need to include in the business, skin care, plus, learn how to make up, Fran became a consultant with a leading International skin care and make up direct selling company and quickly rose to a senior field director position. Over the ensuing 28 year period, whilst raising a family of two, achieved outstanding results and every award possible, plus was responsible for building and managing one of the largest consultant groups within New Zealand. Fran has performed thousands of consultations, makeovers, colour analysis and presentations, sharing her natural beauty tips on how to look beautiful naturally and can rightly claim to be an expert in the field of beauty, including hair care, skin care, cosmetics, colour and style and may well be the ultimate makeup guru, as few can claim to have excelled in so many facets of the beauty world.

In 1999 with her husband Neville were appointed (on behalf of US owners) management of a start-up direct sales company in New Zealand and then Australia.

After 5 years operation they purchased the interests of the company and license for the South Pacific Region. The US parent company had already purchased a color company named Beauty for all Seasons, acknowledged as one of the world leading color companies of its time, so Fran's already vast knowledge on color continued to develop, which of course also heightened her passion for it.

Following the death of the US supplier's owner in 2010 and subsequent loss of supplies and license agreement, Fran and Neville established their own line of New Zealand made, completely natural skin care, introduced a colour co-ordinated cosmetics range manufactured in Canada and USA, developed their own Colour by Dezine® personal colour analysis system, developed the "Discover your Colours App" you see on this website, plus changed the company name to Beauty for You to better reflect the new aims and direction. Through the power of the internet Fran can now share her legendary and vast array of beauty tips for women to clients throughout her beauty world, which has now expanded into more than 20 countries. 

Fran continues to extol her "total beauty" message as trainer and coach to new and existing beauty professionals, and consultants, plus keeps her hand in on product application and customer requirements, by maintaining a small personal client base. If it were possible Fran would be teaching colour analysis, style, skin care and make up forever and the beauty of having such an online business as she has, is that she can almost achieve it. A true makeup guru until the end.

Our support marketing team consists of two Bichon Frise puppies, Bella 9 and Cindy (Bella's daughter) 5.

Update unfortunately in 2022 we lost both Bella and Cindy who were 16 and 13 this has been a major loss for us. 



They are an important part of our lives - come with us most everywhere we go that they are allowed  - do not like being left on their own - just love being made a fuss of from our students and clients who enjoy them as much as we do - they have excellent manners and will seldom bark at you!

Why are they part of the marketing team you ask? Well, we get our best inspirations and ideas when taking a walk with them!!

Following the deadly and disastrous Christchurch 2010/2011 earthquakes and losing our commercial building in Ferrymead (it is still an empty lot!), we immediately transferred our business to "home base", which became the new norm in Christchurch. It is however great to work from home (the puppies love it to!) and we were fortunate to have enough room for offices, beauty bar and training room, plus the garage became the warehouse.

So the same great service to our consultants and customers continues on.


Looking good has never been so easy
