What is Personal Color Analysis?

In the makeup and fashion industry color analysis also known as skin tone color matching or personal color matching, is the process of determining which colors will look best on an individual based on their natural coloring. It is used as an aide to wardrobe planning and style consulting.

A trained professional image consultant is educated on how to spot the undertones in their client’s hair, skin, and eyes.  This is usually done by conducting a number of tests such as draping the client in large pieces of fabric in many different colors, applying cosmetics, etc.

Why Hair Color?

Color & Fashion Guides

Each person is born with their own distinct and individual coloring. This coloring is most pronounced in your hair. Think of it as the icing on the cake. Your skin tone and eyes naturally coordinate with the undertones in your hair and provide the beautiful details that make you look like you.

Not only does your hair cover and represent a large area of visible color, it usually remains fairly constant. Although, for some people their hair changes naturally a few times throughout their lifetime sometimes quite dramatically (blonde as a child, dark as an adult to grey or white later on in life) and sometimes not so naturally through the use of hair dye. This system is designed to work with these changes.

No matter your skin tone or eye color.  The colors mapped out in the AD Color System will harmonize and help you to look your best.  No draping or expensive consultation required.  Just beautiful easy to use color guides, cosmetics lists, and fashion guides.
