Why Color Code Is Important
My color analysis will identify the colors that make you look your best. Once you discover the best neutrals for your coloring, then you build your wardrobe around those neutrals. Included in that foundation is whether you look best in white or ivory or can you wear both and look fabulous? Does your skin tone lend to silver or gold jewelry? Gold jewelry and hardware on your glasses can make your skin look sallow or can enhance your coloring.
Wearing too much contrast in your outfit can overwhelm your features (when the outfit wears you). On the other hand, wearing not enough contrast can wash your features out.
Too many colors at one time in an outfit is another risk of overwhelming your face. When wearing too many colors for your own coloring, the visual effect is a head separated from the body. Everyone wants to avoid that. The goal is a fluid look from head to toe, all harmonious, looking like the head goes with what is below the shoulders.
So color analysis is much more than which colors to wear, but how to wear them.
Change Your Hair Color, Change Your Color Code
If you had your color analysis done in the ’80’s as a season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) it’s likely time for a re-do. Your hair is probably a different color by now, and hair color can be the most significant element of your color analysis. In the ’80s they didn’t even consider hair color in the color analysis. I use six color categories and there were only four “seasons” from the ’80s color analysis.
It’s Complex, But I Can Help
The six color categories based on the coloring of your hair, eyes and skin tone are deep, light, warm, cool, soft, clear. Think of the number of combinations of hair, skin and eye coloring.The variation of each feature combination is a complexity that adds to our individuality and beauty. It also affects the result of our color analysis.
For example, Deeps (dark brunettes with medium to dark skin with dark eyes), who heavily highlight their hair technically can have all the coloring for wearing Deep colors except for the hair which is more of a blonde/brunette mix. If they wear colors for a deep when they have these heavy highlights, the colors may look too bold and heavy because of the highlights, yet the soft muted colors suited for the lighter highlights may wash her out.
It’s complicated. But I am a trained stylist and I can analyze your colors.

Below are a few examples of women for each of the categories.
Deeps generally have dark hair, dark eyes and medium to dark skin with not much contrast in those color tones, and they look good in rich, “deep” jewel tone colors. Think you might be a Deep? See some great outfit color combinations for Deep Color Codes here.
Lights usually have very light blonde hair, light skin and clear eyes of most any color. They have very little contrast in those color tones, and they look good in light to medium intensity colors. Think you might be a Light? See some great outfit color combinations for Light Color Codes here.
Warms are redheads. But they can also be strawberry blondes and brunettes with reddish undertones. They have warm orange or golden skin tones and may or may not have freckles. Their eyes are usually green, blue, brown, or hazel eyes. Warms look awesome in the deeper, richer fall colors. Think you might be a Warm? See some great outfit color combinations for Warm Color Codes here.
Cools have 50% or more gray hair, at least around their face (even if they have less than 50% gray away from the face). They look good in royal colors like pinks, blues, and purples. Think you might be a Cool? See some great outfit color combinations for Cool Color Codes here.
Softs most often have light to medium brown hair, dark or mousy blonde hair, and light to medium skin. Their eyes are usually a medium intensity hazel, brown, blue or green. Very little contrast in the tone of hair, skin and eye coloring is why muted, ‘soft’, medium colors are best. They should not wear colors that are too bright because they will dominate. And if the colors are too light a Soft will look washed out and pale. Think you might be a Soft? See some great outfit color combinations for Soft Color Codes here.
Clears have the highest contrast with very dark hair, very light skin for their ethnicity. They have clear, bright eyes of green, blue or hazel. Some Clears have very dark almost black eyes. Think Snow White. Clears look best in bright clear colors. Think you might be a Clear? See some great outfit color combinations for Clear Color Codes here.
If you have changed your hair color in the last few years (or decades) it is time for an updated color analysis.
