The C Color™ Theory Explained

Author: C Color

You know the feeling, when someone compliments you on your appearance; “That color looks great on you,” and you are instantly more confident or you walk into a beautifully decorated room and feel happier or when shopping, you gravitate toward certain items that you find more appealing, than others. What is the cause of those situations?

The Impact Of Color

Color is a part of every aspect of our lives. Color choices are made daily; from ensembles and food, to interior design and lighting and more and these choices create profound statements, influence moods and enhance spaces, therefore, the optimal colors are paramount to your well-being.

Why It Is Important To Wear The Colors Within Your C Color Spectrum

Color is a powerful tool that is utilized continually, however, we rarely take the time to think about our color choices. Choosing the optimal colors can have a huge impact on your life.

How often do you pause to consider the selections that you make, regarding color and how do the colors transform your life?

When you wear the colors that comprise your C Color Spectrum, your complexion will appear flawless and glow. In addition to looking your best, you can think, feel, act, learn and heal your best.

On the other hand, if the colors are not within your C Color Spectrum, then the colors will wear you, that means that others notice the hues, not you, as the colors will drain the life from your skin.

The C Color™ Story

Color theory is a part of the Perception Management field and is brought into play in industries all over the world.

C Color Founder, Lynette M. Hayde discovered the C Color Ideology, shortly after she hosted a color party for friends years ago. After a Color Consultant draped her guests with fabrics to identify their “seasons,” Lynette observed that her friends never followed the color advice that was imparted.

Lynette also began to be acutely aware of color and realized that she recognized the nuances in colors, that the average individual did not notice. Within months of this observation, Lynette understood why previous color theories missed the mark. A person’s signature or category of colors is not based on a season or outward appearance. The preferences are intrinsic; hence, we embody a color gene, within our DNA. 

There are 16.7 million colors in the world and Lynette has devised an innovative Methodology to determine a person’s C Color Spectrum, with a simple C Color Quiz.

C Color is the first and only company to quantify intuitive color preferences. Quantifying intuitive color preferences is the specialty of C Color and that Ideology and the C Color Methodology will instruct you how to live life in your optimal color environment. 

Most people have an appreciation of colors, but are unable to choose the correct hues for their environments or choose colors that are appropriate to wear. After years of color theory research, consulting, and testing, Lynette created C Color, to assist clients in utilizing the colors within their C Color Spectrums in their daily lives.

The C Color™ Theory

There are four C Color Spectrums and the predominant base of each C Color Spectrum is one of the primary colors of blue, yellow or red. Every individual is born into one of the four C Color Spectrums and that does not change. The predominant base of the color is what matters, not the intensity or value.

As stated, a color gene is a part of your DNA, consequently, you are born with innate color intelligence. Unlike previous color theories, your C Color Spectrum has nothing to do with your external appearance.

Below is a brief breakdown of the four C Color Spectrums.
