I guess you already heard someone say “she’s a spring” or “I’m a winter” and you probably wondered what it meant. As there are 4 seasons in a year, people could be divided into 4 seasons. I will not go deeply into the topic as there are loads of information to find about it on the internet, books to read and there are people who can explain the theory much better than me. So just briefly, what are the 4 different seasons?


The classic winter example would be a woman with porcelain skin and black hair: very cold and high contrast appearance. Also, these are women with very pronounced eye lashes, eye brows, hair of intense deep colors.

You could say about spring women that there’s almost no difference between the color of their skin, hair and eyes, there’s little contrast. I am spring myself and I guess you often heard my complain about my “transparent” eye brows and lashes, haha :) We have golden/red highlights and a generally warmer complexion.

Summer women are generally also women that have low contrast between their hair and eye colors. Summer women are generally women with more ashy hair and cool skin tone.

Autumn women are the most warm women in their skin and hair color (e.g. deep brown shades with deep golden highlights). These women often have eyes of deep intense colors, all shades of brown and hazel. These are women of low contrast. Your skin can be from olive to dark.

But then again, some people are not “pure spring” or “pure autumn”, you can also be a mix of 2 seasons, a light, cold or warm variation of it. If you want to find out what season you are, do a free test here!
