What is PCA?

In short, Personal Color Analysis (PCA) is the process by which we determine which colors best complement your natural skin tone.

According to Munsell, any given color has three dimensions:

Hue and Heat: What color is it? How warm or cool is it?

hue-value-chroma-01

Value: How dark or light is it?

hue-value-chroma-03

Chroma: How bright or soft is it?

hue-value-chroma-02

What we think of as “complementary” colors are those that have the same or similar dimensions. Our goal is to find out what dimensions work with YOU. We do this by isolating your unique tone and observing the effects that different colors produce on your face. Some of those effects may be:

More even skin tone
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
Increased definition of bone structure
Clearer, brighter eyes
Whiter teeth

At the conclusion of your analysis, you will be placed into one of twelve color categories, or “seasons.” Your season is merely the name of your category, and has less to do with your actual hair, eye, and skin color as it does with the observations listed above.
