Colour clients obviously take great pride in their appearance and will want to know more about what suitsheir hair

Clothing and make-up play ae in someone’s appearance, and getting it right is not something that comes naturally to everyone. So, to help you advise your clients on what colours they should be wearing, top make-up artist Rupert Kingston, creative director of new id cosmetics, shares his knowledge, as does leading clothes stylist Sallyb Gallagher, on what colours your clients should be opting for. “The key to understanding the clothing colours that suit your clients perfectly, can be unearthed by the use of four simple category types:cool, warm, light and deep”, advises Sally. However, getting the perfect colour match is about much more than simply looking at your clients existing hair colour. “Judging your client’s colouring on their (current) artificial hair shade can be a disaster. We can all achieve different hair colours on ourselves – but that doesn’t mean they always suit us”, explains Sally.

SALLY’S TOP TIPS TO UNDERSTANDING YOUR CLIENT’S COLOURING…

Perfect partners
  • Check the re-growth and eyebrow shade. Is it predominately cool or warm, light or deep?
  • Observe your client’s eyes. This is an excellent indicator. Do they look cool or warm, light or have depth? As a general, althougg not exclusive rule, greens and hazels can denote warmth, while grey tone indicates cool.
  • Study their skin tone. Does it have a pink or dusky undertone ore is there definite warmth – usually indicated by freckles and rosy cheeks? Don’t be fooled. Sometimes pale skin can actually indicate warmth. The archetypal copper (think Julianne Moore or Sarah Ferguson) can look pale under some harsh lights (particularly salon lighting) and can have bright cool eyes. The secret is to check the re-growth colour and ask the client what their original colour is, especially if they have since gone predominately grey.
  • Beware of fake tan and foundations. These will be your enemy and coupled with an artificial hair colour can really fool the expert. If your client is wearing fake tan or excessive make-up – always make your decisions by observing the eye colour and natural hair colour (albeit from the eyebrows).
  • Never trust the salon lights. Some salon lighting can mute out subtle tones found in the skin and eye colour. Therefore, to get a thoroughly accurate diagnosis – take your client into natural daylight.

    MAKE-UP…

    • The first mistake many women make is when they turn their hair darker, they feel paler and often opt for a darker foundation. The skin can always be warmed up with a bronzer.
    • with darker hair you can afford to go for heavy, dark smoky eyes – think Cheryl Cole.
    • The alternative to dark smoky eyes is to go for vampy lips and natural eyes, such as burgundy, plum or red lips. The key is heavy eyes or lips, but not both.
    • In personally prefer bronzers as opposed to blushers for brunettes. A light dusting of bronze is perfect for accentuating the cheeks.
    • The safer eye colours for brunettes are lilacs, plums and blue tones. Avoid reds, corals and oranges.
    • For lips, nude colours are fantastic.
    • Don’t forget to pay attention to eyebrows and pencil them in, particularly if they are lighter than the hair colour.
