The soul and appearance of each person have a unique individual set of parameters, which may be compared to the shapes of snowflakes, always unique. This individual characteristic frequency represents the essence of an individual human soul and body. I will not elaborate further on that, I will just say that I adhere to the following philosophy – it is better to wear colors, lines and prints inherent in our looks, in this way our essence will be brought out and shine.

I started a series of posts dedicated to the description of the palette, i.e. color harmonies that we create for customers. It is a fan consisting of various swatches (see an example here). The effects of your eye related color and your “rose”, in other words your romantic color were already discussed. In today’s post I would like to discuss your hair color.

Hair color is a name for your casual neutral color, which in many cases should not reflect hundred percent the true color of your hair because  often case your hair color is not even, there are variations and highlights. Your hair color should be also in accordance with the rest of your palette. Remember, we are creating a color harmony where every color works with each other.

To get a harmonious effect of your look you may repeat the presence of your hair color in your outfit. In the picture below it is the black belt and the black ribbons that match her hair color. A little bit of the hair color in the outfit of the “Elegant au sofa” settles the entire look.

You can have trench coats, sweaters, dresses in that color. In most cases it gives a casual effect and it settles your look. To illustrate the point I provided few images below. You may observe lots of examples in everyday life. I wish you to have fun and interesting discoveries.
