"My Color Analysis!!! This is a custom color palette...if you look closely you can see how the colors of the swatches are found in my skin, hair and eyes. So cool! ... I highly recommend taking a look at Jane Reka's blog."

"Jane is such a joy to work with and provides a fabulous analysis! I am thrilled with the results of my analysis and love the color fans that I received! I had the pleasure of seeing her in person and was very pleased with her thoroughness. Jane provided me with a lot of information that has helped me find my own style and she has continued assisting me with my color and style journey. Finding your own colors is a very personal and individualistic process and I really appreciate Jane's ability to listen to my perspective while simultaneously providing her professional, masterful opinion. I highly recommend hiring her! Thanks again Jane!"


Nature is never wrong. All of the colors of your body - hair, skin, eyes, etc. - are wonderful and perfect. Fall in love with your colors and fall in love with yourself!

 I have been working with finding complementary colors to body colors, such as hair, eyes, romantic, etc. What I have been finding is that those complementary colors are often in the person's body already. How wonderful.

Having your personalized colors done is not only aesthetically pleasing but also healing.  You find your true self in your true colors.
Palette Purpose

When you get a palette based on your body colors, you can build a wardrobe that has colors for different intentions.  You can read about this in David Zyla's book, but also in Jane Segerstrom's and others.  Jennifer Butler also uses this model and it must come from Suzanne Caygill.

The colors in your hair and eyes provide a grounding effect when worn as your neutrals - for suit separates, handbags and shoes.  Your neutral colors are for formal and informal use.

The colors in your eyes -- particularly the lights of your eyes - used as your neutrals, provide a balancing and stabilizing effect when worn.

analogous and complementary colors to hair and eye colors:


Your skin tone colors are worn to express vulnerability and connectedness, especially in building relationships.



Most people will wear an off white that is in their season's chroma.


The colors found in your veins are your natural dramatic colors. These can be used for when you are making presentations or negotiating and you want to make an impact.
My veins are blue/teal and purple.




The color that you blush is your Romantic red.  This color's purpose is creativity.  It is also wonderful for celebration.  Wear responsibly as it can excite passion.
