The Power Of Contrast

Do you ever wonder why some people look amazing in block, monochrome colours and others just dont? Wonder no more! Im here to give you a quick contrast lesson!

What is contrast?

Its all to do with understanding colour.  Its a dark to light scale numbered from 1 – 10, 1 being black and 10 being white.  This scale is used in many fields including hairdressing – so 1 is black hair dye and 8 is a blonde (you may have heard your hairdresser talking numbers).

 what is your contrast?

Low Contrast = you could have Light coloured hair, blonde, grey, brown, or dark brown black hair AND your skin is nearly the same colour tone as your hair eg: Blonde hair, fair skin and blue eyes, OR Med brown hair, olive skin and brown eyes.

Medium Contrast =medium brown hair, fair skin and hazel eyes, dark blonde hair, brown eyes, fair skin

High Contrast = Red Hair, fair skin, green eyes, Black hair, fair skin and blue eyes

What does this mean for you?

It means that if you have HIGH COLOUR CONTRAST - then you will look great when you wear lots of different colours as your face can take the extreams of colour.

If you have a LOW COLOUR CONTRAST - then you would look better when wearing more monochromitic colours, it has a more calming effect on your face.

If your a HIGH COLOUR CONTRAST then you can wear more strong contrasting colours . It also means that you can wear stronger patterns as your high contrasting features can carry it off.

If you would like help to know what and how to wear your outfits - call us now and we can arrange a time to meet!
