Previously I referred to these as your Dominant Color Category but the higher-ups realized that terminology could be a bit confusing so now we refer to them as your Color Code (Light, Deep, Soft, Clear, Warm, Cool).
Your Color Code
For the next few weeks, I’ll be updating some Pinterest board descriptions and blog posts to reflect the new Color Code verbiage but I’ll put it all here for you as well.
It’s worth noting that unlike the seasonal system, we only have SIX Color Codes to keep things simple. You might be in need of an update if you think your “type” was wrong or is outdated.
This NEW cheat sheet might help narrow it down, finding your Color Code based on your hair color.
There are six categories (or codes) each with a link to the Pinterest board:
Naturally blonde or white hair. Fair skin tone. Light to medium eye color.
Medium to dark brown or black hair. Medium to dark skin tone. Hazel, brown or black eyes.
The DEEP Pinterest board.
Light to medium brown hair (or ‘mousy’ or ‘dishwater blonde’). Light to medium skin tone. Medium intensity eye color like hazel, brown, blue or green.
The SOFT Pinterest board.
Dark medium brown to black hair. Very light or medium skin tone. Bright eye colors (green, blue or hazel) or dark brown.
Red hair or golden blonde or brown hair with reddish highlights. Any skin tone, sometimes with freckles. Green, blue, brown or hazel eyes.
The WARM Pinterest board.
Silver, gray or ash brown hair. Light to medium skin tone (often with a pink undertone). Blue, green, hazel or brown eyes.
The COOL Pinterest board.
7. Reverse Clear.
Dark eyes and light hair, typically with fair to medium skin. The reserve of Clear, which is dark hair and bright or light eyes.
This code is quite rare but can also happen when a brown-eyed lady’s hair turns white with age. It’s a gorgeous look! Like a Clear, they look great in bright colors and high contrast.
