This is something that's first on my clients FAQ list, so what is it?, what does knowing it actually enhance? Is it simple to learn and to practice? All these questions plus many more you can find below.
First impressions allways count and for none other colour more than anything else creates the
first visual and most noteable impression. So naturally you can understand why knowing
“your colours” can be so important. Colour is a component of light, and
this energy travels at vibrating waves at over 186,000 miles per second.
It is meant to affect us physically, psychologically, and emotionally.
It can propel us into action, motivate, or soothe us. However, it can
also repel us too. People make split second judgments based on
first appearances. So learning how to use colour is one of the most
powerful things you can do.
Colour Analysis is the process of taking a
look at your complexion, eye colour, and hair to accurately determine
the exact colours that make your features stand out. Most people associate
this type of colour science with four seasons to categorise human
colouring. While a great start, it only got us so far and was incomplete.
Initially, it was assumed that all skin tones were either warm or cool.
But in many cases, colour analysts found that warmth or coolness of hue
was not definite. In fact, most people fall somewhere in between, which
is referred to as neutral. So within each seasonal category, two
additional tones have been added to allow for the expansion of the
seasons to 12 tones, including all variations.
When someone says to me, “I can’t wear red,” it is because they don’t know exactly what kind of red they canwear.
Every single person can wear a representation of every colour in the
spectrum, but the colour varies in hue, shade, and saturation. There may
be some colours that look better on you than others, but this is revealed
during the initial draping session, which will show us where you fall
in the 12-season system. The purpose of this system is to have all the
colours of your adornment – clothing, hair colour, accessories, and shoes –
all in harmony with you and your personal colour tone. This is an
excellent way to ensure a fantastic first impression. This is why I use
colour analysis as the FIRST step in revealing your style prescription.
