12 SEASON COLOUR ANALYSIS

Sometimes Basic Colour Analysis may not represent some of us because there are other combinations that this analysis could not cover. For example, you may have cool skin but warm eyes and hair colours. Therefore, a more in-depth seasonal colour analysis has been developed, which consists of 12 or 16 different colour plates. We will cover 12 Season Colour Analysis here.

This analysis focuses on one additional dimension to the basic one called Saturation. Saturation is the intensity or purity of the colour. Low saturated colours have more weak, muted, and greyish; high saturated colours are brighter and more clear.

1.Temperature /Undertone : WARM-yellow based or COOL-blue based
2.Value/Contrast : DARK/DEEP or LIGHT
3.Saturation : BRIGHT/CLEAR OR MUTED/SOFT

Colour Dimensions Explained For Seasonal Colour Analysis

SPRING and WINTER colours are bright and clear while SUMMER and AUTUMN colours are soft and muted. Adding one more dimension to colour analysis results more accurate 12 season colour analysis by allowing the seasons to overlap and flow with each other. Therefore, this is also called "FLOW THEORY”.

Seasonal Colour Analysis Flow Theory

Every primary season is divided into 3 subcategories where the main Seasons overlap, and the new season is created. For example, Soft Autumn is between Summer and Autumn which has warm features of its main season but also has intensity characteristics from Summer.

How are the colours determined for each season?

Seasonal Colour Analysis Colour Dimensions
  • SPRING colours are warm, light and clear (yellow base)  and have tinted variations.
  • AUTUMN colours are warm, deep and muted (more yellow and less blue base mix) and have shaded and toned variations.
  • WINTER colours are cool, deep and clear (blue based) and have shaded and tinted variations.
  • SUMMER colours are cool, light and muted (more blue and less yellow base mix) and have toned variations.
