    Color 1 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 it's 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, robins 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 toned-down, muted looking colors.

    No One is equally enhanced by 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

    The Color 1 principles of shade and clarity are extremely important to image enhancement, yet, there is another vastly essential principle - 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.

    I'm not talking about the simple "beige goes with brown and you can wear yellow and blue together" color combinations, I'm talking about what specific color combinations are flattering, or unflattering, to your natural body coloring.

    The right color in the right clarity used 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! Call Color 1 Associates today for your consultation.
