The coloring and flavor

Each person’s appearance has its own color: skin color, eyes and hair.
The colorist takes them as a basis and finds a palette that is suitable for the individual color and in harmony with it.
Instinctive feeling: does this color suit me or does it not suit me? – becomes conscious. When we talk about the harmony of colors and a suitable palette, we mean a whole that harmoniously combines its own color and accompanying colors
Colorise colors and shades can be grouped according to various criteria. The two most important criteria are: warm and cold. Warm and cold colors, in turn, can be bright and muted. Having sorted according to these criteria, we get four groups of colors. In two large groups, Warm and Cold, we distinguish two subgroups: bright And Muted.
All shades in these groups have common features. They can be designated as A, B, C, and D. But the Type a designation is not visual. Therefore, the colorist calls groups of colors more precisely, referring to the example of nature itself. After all, each group of colors resembles the color of one of the seasons. Thus, depending on your color, you can relate to the range of spring, summer, autumn and winter. Try to compare colors from all four groups with typical landscapes of the seasons! You will immediately see the relationship.
Spring
Imagine a blooming meadow the color of fresh greens and green apples, warm yellowness of crocuses, orange-red tulips, everywhere only warm bright colors!
Summer
Think of the sun, the sea and the beach, the dried grass and flowers. The brightness of the spring is muted, the colors are colder.
Autumn
Its palette is particularly easy to imagine. When we say Golden autumn, we think of autumn foliage, such as bronze, brass, copper, Golden brown, pale green, and olive.
Winter
This time of year evokes associations with clear, cold tones. Not only the temperature, but also the colors seem cold, the same as snow, ice, and frost.
The color of our appearance, which is manifested in the color of the iris, hair and skin color, is subject to classification into four groups of colors. Therefore, colorists talk about the spring, summer, autumn or winter type.
Of course, it is not easy for an inexperienced person to immediately determine their own type of appearance. But compare yourself to other people who have the same eye color as you, for example, blue, gray, brown, or green. You will immediately see that each has its own shade. The same applies to hair color. You discover a phenomenon: for each person with their individual color appearance, there is only a suitable color scheme for them.
Do you think that as you get older and grayer, there is a change in color type? The most interesting thing is that this is not the case. Pigmentation changes, but very individually, meaning your type remains the same. The result of the color analysis remains unchanged. Your own color is constant.
If I hear from an old person: I used to look good in black, now I don’t have or. Now that I’m older, I have to wear lighter colors – as a colorist, I know that black or dark shades were never optimal, and the color’s lack of play was compensated by youth or appearance.
Often, regardless of age, people instinctively feel the harmony between external colors and their own color, but when buying glasses or clothing, they are guided more by fashion or style. This is a mistake!
Always, when you want your skin to tan or you feel that you need to apply makeup or repainted hair in a different color looked good, this is a sure sign of the wrong choice of color scheme. Lighting and style, type of fabric and accessories play an equally important role when buying.
In the following chapters, we will focus more on the General appearance and style of clothing, glasses, hairstyles, haircuts and accessories.
There is no visible connection between the colorist, psychology, and the corresponding tests, although compliments about a good appearance have a positive effect on the psyche. Colorist has nothing to do with color therapy or esotericism.
