We show our clients how to create the personal visual image they want. We instigate change in our client’s behavior by increasing their self-assurance. We change the way the world looks at our clients.
How? By teaching them the Color 1 Concept so they can look great everyday – not just occasionally. No one looks their best without it!
IF YOU LOOK GREAT TODAY, IT MAY JUST BE AN ACCIDENT!
If a person looks great one day and not so fabulous the next, it was more than likely just an “accident” that they looked great at all. When a client understands how to use the concept, they know how to create a fabulous look everyday whether they are wearing workout clothes, a business look or an evening dress.
BE AWARE OF THE IMPACT YOUR IMAGE HAS ON YOUR LIFE. IT AFFECTS THE WAY YOU BEHAVE AND THE WAY PEOPLE BEHAVE TOWARD YOU!
When you look great one day, and not the next, it can be worrisome to those around you and to yourself. They think that you’re having a down-day – not feeling your best, not “doing” your best.
COLOR 1’S CONCEPT IS NOT A SEASONAL COLOR THEORY!
Color 1 Associates instruct their clients in personal color usage in a very unique way. We know that the formerly popular “seasonal color theory” is far too general to be specifically helpful, and often inaccurate. Let me be more specific.
Usually, 50 % of the colors on a seasonal color chart are not as flattering to the individual as they could be. Also, many colors are left off that would look beautiful.
Color 1 Associates create personal color charts that contain the client’s most flattering shades of every color in the spectrum (beige, white, camel, brown, rust, navy, gray, green, blue-green/turquoise, robin’s egg blue/teal, blue, several purples, plum/fuchsia, raspberry, red, coral, orange, yellow and very often black).
This full range of colors allows an unlimited variety of looks; and, because they are all enhancing to the client’s coloring, they are also assured of a great look, not just a great variety!
Seasonal charts often contain both clear/bright colors and tone-down/muted looking colors.
NO INDIVIDUAL IS EQUALLY ENHANCED BY BOTH CLEAR AND TONED-DOWN COLORS!
Color 1 Associates know that all individuals are more enhanced by one specific clarity or another, but never by both. The wrong clarity can make a client look garish and overpowered or, on the other hand, washed out and drab.
THE RIGHT COLOR IN THE WRONG CLARITY IS NOT EFFECTIVE!
Even though the Color 1 principles of shade and clarity are greatly important to image enhancement, the most important principles of all is how an individual combines their colors.
Without this knowledge, a client could be dressed in their best colors and most flattering clarity and still not look great – YES, color combinations are that important.
We're not talking about the simple “beige goes with brown and you can wear yellow and blue together” color combinations, we're talking about what specific color combinations (and pattern sizes) are flattering, or unflattering, to your natural body coloring. Also, please note that pattern size has to do with a client’s “coloring”, not their body size or shape (that’s a separate consideration).
THE RIGHT COLOR IN THE RIGHT CLARITY WORN IN THE WRONG COLOR COMBINATION IS NOT EFFECTIVE!
The seasonal concepts do not address this critical link to looking great in any way, shape, or form.
The Color 1 concept is a way of life for our clients – a beautifully simple “habit” of looking great everyday!
