With over 16.7 million colors in the world, it is no wonder people have a hard time figuring out which ones to buy, decorate with and wear. People are bombarded with color choices daily, that can become terribly confusing.
Working with a professional color consultant could unlock the door to an awareness of the colors that complement you. Knowing the colors that complement you will assist in shopping, dressing and decorating. Usually, a palette of colors is offered at the end of the consultation.
If you have already scheduled an appointment with a color consultant or are considering one, here is what to expect when undergoing a color consultation.
The Color Consultation Process
The most common approach for color prescription is the seasonal color analysis method. This theory classifies individuals into spring, summer, autumn and winter “seasons” based on skin tones, hair colors and eye colors. During the consultation, the seasonal color consultant carefully examines your features and narrows down the seasons until he or she establishes your season.
Here is what to expect what undergoing a seasonal color analysis consultation:
Pre-consultation preparation begins with your skin. It is crucial that you do not spend excessive amounts of time in the sun without sunscreen for a couple weeks prior to your appointment. Red or peeling skin will impede results.
The Big Day
Prior to your appointment, be sure to thoroughly wash your face. Color consultants require clients to be fresh-faced to accurately identify their seasonal colors. No need to be embarrassed or self-conscious of blemishes, blotchiness, hyperpigmentation, scars or under-eye circles. Your personal color consultant is a professional and sees all types of skin on a regular basis. Plus, you may be very surprised when you see the positive changes in your natural skin when paired with a favorable hue.
As proper lighting is necessary, most color consultants prefer conducting consultations at their location as opposed to your home. This also ensures all the essential materials and supplies are at hand.
At the start of your session, you will be seated in front of a large mirror. The color consultant will drape a light grey cloth or cape around you and a light grey cap over your hair. Grey is more neutral than white, and a neutral backdrop is critical to receiving accurate results.
Next, your color consultant will work through various colors to demonstrate how each reacts with your skin, eyes and hair. Throughout this process, some hues will be strikingly bad. Some will be ok. Others will elicit applause.
Once your color palette is named, the color consultant will provide you with an array of fabric swatches containing your hues to take with you. You may further discuss hair and cosmetic coloring, as your color palette applies to these as well.
Ideally, you could observe the world through a different lens and feel more assured with your ability to identify colors for yourself. A closet clean-out will most likely be in order, not to mention a well-deserved shopping spree.
Post-consultation questions are welcomed by color consultants. They want you to enjoy the full benefit of their offering. So feel free to send a text message or email or place a call to your consultant.
