Fully Embrace Your Colour Palette!!!
Fully embracing a colour palette and stepping into a season is different than just experiementing with different seasons. There is a certain level of commitment that comes with fully embracing a new look persona. In welcoming back the warm/true autumn palette, I decided that I wanted to celebrate this new 'colour commitment' with a hair colour change. My hair has always had a subtle warm/slightly golden undertone, but I wanted to step into the copper/copper-blonde and uber-warm brunette shades. The stylist I went to see had such a great eye for colour and she literally read my mind. She knew I wanted something warm, rich, but leaning towards the copper family. She and I discussed a new base and we went with a medium toned copper-brown base. The highlights she did were in the copper-blonde family and she mentioned that they would morph into a warm pure light copper shade. The photo here is day after I got the colour done, so the highlights appear slightly lighter then how they will eventually look. I can't help but ask myself why I waited so long to do this? Embracing the wamrth of my palette and truly bringing it to every aspect of my style persona has been the missing peice of the puzzle. WHen all the emelents come together in colour harmony/unity, you really get to see the full effect of colour analysis. Its about wearing your colours in your clothes and accessories choices, finding a harmonious makeup look in your colours and embracing a hair cut/style and colour that brings everything together. Adding elements of personal style to your colour persona helps this harmony fuse together so perfectly. If you know your colour season and already have some clothes/accessories/makeup put together, don't stop there - embrace a hair colour that will compliment your palette, literally bring your palette to life head to toe - you will see the effects of truly embracing your season!!!
