I have recently had my colours analysed and I am a summer. As I have a wardrobe full of black and brown, I am looking to buy a few things in 'my' colours. I was wondering if anyone who is a Summer had seen anything in the shops/online that might be suitable? My 'best' colours were slate grey, raspberry, cherry, light blues (delf) and jade. I have looked at Kettlewell, but it is ££ when I am just starting to introduce colour!
Also, I have a hair appointment soon and I usually get my hair coloured red. My analyst did show me some pics for possible hair colours but if I had something to take to the hairdressers that would be great. Any ideas?
Not sure I can help, as I got mine done in April and am also struggling... sounds like our "best" colours are the same too, and I get my hair coloured red, so I think you might actually be me . I was a bit taken aback by the girliness of the palette - there are a lot of pinks, and I avoid pink/red like the plague.
I have been shopping a few times and there doesn't seem to be much out there. Hobbs is good for the colours but too pricey if I try it and am too scared to wear it!
For my hair, the consultant shook her head at my faded orange and suggested burgundy or aubergine; both of which are a bit too strong for me I think but might work for you?
