Episode 38: Season Stereotypes

In today’s show…

We discuss the values and limitations of Season stereotypes, those categories that describe ‘average’ or ‘general’ appearances of persons in each of the 12 groups of natural colouring. Where do they come from,  why do they exist, and how might they help or hinder us with our own colour choices?

    First, I love your podcasts. I was analyzed in 2010 by Lisa Ford shortly after the death of Kathryn who trained Lisa. At the end she could not decide Dw Da. We both choose Da? I often felt my blush looked muddy.? I stopped coloring my hair during COVID. Now I’m Salt and Pepper. Da was NOT working. Changed to DW. I am totally happy. But have to also mention Dark Lipstick does not work. I had read on Terry W blog for mature Dw or Da you may need to tone down your makeup. Listening today is so true. As you learn the process, you can fine tune yourself Also I took a course with Cate Linden on personal style.. So very helpful. Always learning. Lynda Butt

    I’d love to see something on darker haired light springs, they’re the most “stereotyped as (bottle) blonde” season out there. I am pretty sure I am a light spring or close, but my hair is a light coppery brown.
