Tonal or Seasonal Color Analysis?

What's the difference? Which is the best?

TONAL or SEASONAL COLOR ANALYSIS - do they have you puzzled?

Lots of people tell me that the SEASONS don't feel right for them and they're right, they don't work for everyone.

Your natural coloring is defined by your individual color characteristics. Sometimes these characteristics will show that you're a SEASON but, if not, you will belong to a TONAL Color Family.  

The systems complement each other. There is NO difference because whatever your Color Family there is a glorious color palette waiting just for YOU.

The TONAL system is not so well known in the USA but I use both systems to ensure that you get the best individual results.

Considering COLOR ANALYSIS then choose a consultant who understands both systems to get the best result. Or pop over to Color Analysis right here.

6 Tonal Color Families - if you have 1 characteristic

TONAL Color Analysis works well if you have one primary Color Characteristic

This is easy to understand because Colors are grouped together just the way we describe them - LIGHT DEEP BRIGHT MUTED WARM or COOL. 

It's reasonably easy to identify the first impression that we get from your coloring. Do your own Color Analysis to see if you have an obvious primary characteristic. 

If you do not have ONE obvious color characteristic then you may fit more easily into the Seasons - each of which has a mix of THREE characteristics in more of less equal quantities.

4 Seasons - if you have a mix of characteristics

SEASONAL Color analysis also uses Color Characteristics but each Season is made up of a mix of THREE color characteristics.

This was the first system to be developed and, since then, the Seasons have been redefined and are (officially) quite precise. Sadly this is often not adhered to and people are sometimes mis-determined. 

The Seasons have fabulous color palettes but if you do not fit into the specifics it's better to look at the Tonal color families and identify your ONE primary characteristic.

Whatever your Color Family, the most important thing is how you FEEL


So whether you're looking at Tonal or Seasonal

When Color Analysis became fashionable way back in the 70's and 80's, it acquired a bad reputation because it was very dogmatic. 

I like to sweep away the old fashioned attitudes and put back the fun, the flexibility and the common sense into what is a magical medium.  

COLOR is here to be enjoyed not to get HUNG UP on. Even if you find your COLOR FAMILY, you probably won't look good in every shade of your swatch - it's all very individual as are we.

Color Analysis is a guide to help find the best look for you, IT IS NOT written in stone.

And as Coco Chanel always said

'The best color in the world is the one that looks good on you!'
