Cool vs. Warm

Is your Dominant characteristic Warm or Cool?

Remember it's not just your "undertones" that you are looking for, like you may have been used to doing in the old color analysis system.

To qualify to be a "Cool" season (cool being your dominant trait), all 3 of your hair, skin and eyes should be cool.

Likewise, your hair, skin, and eyes must should be warm for it to be considered "Warm" as a dominant characteristic.


Cool seasons come alive in pinks and blues and cool reds.

  • Eyes: Blue is most common. Hazel and blue-grey are also seen.
  • You may have a definite natural pink ‘glow’ to your skin.
  • Often times, though, you simply show no signs of warmth, rather than looking "pinkish".
  • Your hair can be ash blonde, or ash highlights; or rich chestnut brown with no reddish hightlights or true black.
  • Warm earthy colors, particularly golden yellow can make you look sick.

Warm Seasons will often have red or auburn hair, though warm brown is seen as well.

  • Green eyes are common but so are hazel and warm brown. Eyes will often have golden flecks or a starburst around the pupil.
  • Blue eyes can be seen in warm seasons (fyi: blue is found in All seasons).
  • Skin may have a peachy glow to it (as opposed to Pink) and your overall look is a ‘warm golden glow.'
  • Freckles are common.
  • Cool colors look artificial on you.
