Spring personalities were put on Earth to make the rest of us smile. Louise and I work together ( she is a veterinarian too) and I am grateful for it every day.
Although Louise gets the credit for making me laugh, her husband David is a pro photographer. He took this picture as well as the breathtaking pictures of Louise that follow.
A quintessential Spring, Louise can talk about any topic under the sun. She is always open and friendly, assertive, sincere, optimistic, and finds the humour in life. As she says, If you cannot look on the bright side, what is the point?? For Take-Your-Child-To-Work Day, my kids want to be with Louise for the day.
Light Spring’s are ice cream dessert colours. They are happy and spontaneous.
Colours may be sporty but more so, they embrace movement. The relaxed, informal personality looks natural in jeans and comfortable textures. With the Summer feminine blend and the light delicacy of the colouring, this could be an ultra-feminine person, but Louise is the easy and casual type.
Many Springs are fascinated by the natural world. They jumped into the puddles as children, not over them. Louise is never happier than in her garden. She looks great in beautifully coloured fleece, her yellow nylon jacket, and her shiny rain boots. As you can see, she can also look elegant and poised.
You might see the medium ash brown (it is lighter and cooler IRL) , and say:
- She is too dark to be a Light Season. > Hair colour is relevant to final appearance but not to deciding Season. It is hidden during the analysis so that we avoid the mistake of using it to predict Season or match what we think it is to the drapes.
- Her hair is too cool. Springs have golden hair. > The hair may seem cool but the eyes are yellow green. The skin colours are harmonized by warm-neutral colours, not the cooler neighbour on the Summer side, or the warmer True Spring.
Meet Stevan. He and Louise share the same personal colour palette. Warmer looking than Louise, but with bluer eyes. Because his overall appearance is more yellow, he might borrow more from the True Spring, but his overall colour reactions and boundaries are the same as with Louise.
He is as handsome, sunlit, and friendly as he appears in this picture. Stevan smiles easily and is genuinely interested in others, the hallmark of a Spring. His hair is as golden as his skin tone and his character. (Before anyone asks, Stevan is the bigger one, but that so-cute baby has golden potential.)
I admire of natural contrasts. When cool hair is paired with warmer skin, as we see in both of our models and many Neutral Season individuals, the effect is striking and intriguing. The one is a showcase for the other.
You might be inadvertently matched to the degree of warmth/coolness in hair or eyes if the salesperson looks at single features. They have little choice. Without the measured comparisons of a colour analysis, it is impossible to understand the true degree of warmth/coolness of skin tone.
Despite cooler looking hair, Louise chooses apricot, salmon, and warm pink. Her Spring colouring reminds her to avoid dusty or cool colours. She looks for clear, warm, and light.
We are individuals even within our Season. Louise would choose a darker, cooler highlight. If Stevan were to highlight his hair, he would use a warmer, lighter yellow than Louise, respecting the clear, pale golden warmth of his natural colour.
Louise has replaced all her black, now that she knows her better choices. She has many beige and gray tones, as well as deep emerald turquoise, Chinese blue, and a gorgeous violet. They are sophisticated with the incredible neutrals of champagne, cameo, and seashell.
When the colours you wear, repeat the colours you are, you have a secret weapon.
