Enjoying vibrant color with grey hair


I have silver hair with slightly golden streaks, light brown eyes, medium coloured skin which tans in summer and I'm aged 74. What season am I and what are my best colours?


Hello Pamela

I'm afraid it's not that easy for me to tell you your Color Family.

Take a look at the Free Color Analysis Quiz which should give you a pretty good idea of color direction.

Or take a look around the Color section of the website there's lots of information about Tonal and Seasonal Color Analysis. If you can decide Warm or Cool it's a big step towards finding your Season.

If you want to identify your coloring properly (whether it's Tonal or Seasonal) then I would suggest an Online Color Analysis which requires a questionnaire so I can understand your background and of course photographs.

Both I and the majority of the ladies on this website are what you would call 'mature' because when natural coloring starts to change it's often the time we need a boost of confidence.

Age doesn't detract from enjoying beautiful colors and there's no earthly reason why you shouldn't enjoy a wide color palette.

Color Analysis will prove to be a sound investment and and comes with a 100% guarantee of satisfaction so you have everything to gain.

kind regards

A Season's undertone is genetic...
by: Pamela

You can't change Seasons because each has a genetic undertone. Spring and Autumn are Warm; Summer and Winter are Cool.

Each Season is a blend of 3 specific color characteristics (Tonal groups) and what I've found is that as pigment fades in hair and skin (loses color) the balance between the 3 characteristics CAN change.

For example, Spring is Warm, Light and Bright but as color fades warmth can be lost and sometimes LIGHT can become the most important element. In this case the person may be more suited to the LIGHT color family.

So I've found that a Season can become a Tonal color family but not a different Season. Important to always keep an open mind though and personal feelings have to be considered.

If someone changes their hair color voluntarily it doesn't change the natural coloring in eyes or skin so it doesn't change the undertone but can perhaps affect the intensity of the colors that suit.

Graying beautifully!
by: Mary from the USA

Pam, this is a great example of a lucky woman grayed beautifully. For some the transition to gray is a bit awkward and we turn to a beautician for help.

Which brings me to a question. In your experience, have you had a client who colored her hair and changed seasons? The client could be any age, even younger with little or no gray.
