Learn the Seasonal Twist™ Colour Analysis method from your own home. 

For those who want more choice than the traditional 4 seasons method which they find limiting and less than the traditional tonal method which they find overwhelming.


3 highly effective steps to colour analysis success every time, guaranteed.


In the good old days and still too much even today, there was/is one way of draping clients which makes it difficult to identify skin tone and level of colour. Having really struggled with this way of using drapes Sue a better way was needed. Also laser focusing on eye and hair colour was just plain daft in most cases because it stopped you seeing what the drapes were telling you.

For Sue and hundreds of fellow and wannabe colour coaches, there had to be an easier way of doing colour analysis. An easier way with clear starting points that make deciding warm or cool skin tone easy and an easier way to determine the level of colour whichever method you choose to use.


As a training company helping you to understand that hair colour does not put you into a specific season. This causes no end of struggle for many people who have been taught that this is truth. It is NOT. Due to genetics (body make up) clients today can have for any colour hair for a season and that includes red. Eye colour is the same too.

” I just love how Sue incorporates the modern with the traditional, showing us apps and products and not being salesy, but showing us how when we are ready, that they will really help us in our consultations whether virtually or in person”.


What colour anaylsis isn’t – the original and very true experience Sue had

When I had my colours done many years ago, it was as though I’d entered a clinical trial in a very sterile atmosphere as the consultant wrapped me in a white cape, put my hair in a white shower cap and removed my make up and then sat me right by her front room window so that those walking by could see me!!!!!….can you image that!!! which didn’t exactly leave me in a relaxed state!!! Actually I wanted to bolt from the house but felt glued to the chair, the consultant then put on a white doctors coat (which really alarmed me, I was half expecting plastic gloves to be put on next) and she then proceeded to swish hundreds of drapes around my jawline at high speed!!! This was not the experience I thought I was going to have!!

When the consultant had finished draping (or so I thought) some some make-up was applied…..OMG……..lets just say…not my look at all!

And then unbelievably more drapes were swished under my jaw line. I’d lost the will by then and just went into some sort of trance (basically i switched off completely). I was identified into a season, given a swatch which identified which wow colours I needed to wear for ever and shoved out of the door as another customer was due. 

I was in total shock, please don’t let anyone be around I prayed as I bolted for my car (luckily there wasn’t) and I drove home, stunned at the experience I’d just had.

What colour analysis is

  • Its all about the client, what they FEEL good in, it isn’t about you. 
  • Its about discovering together what is right for them whilst allowing them to turn the volume up and down on the strength of colour if they so wish.
  • It is about discovering together which colours and the corresponding energies work for the client and how to be aware of the ones that do not.
  • It is about taking our techniques and adapting them so that every client you see has an interesting and enriching experience.
  • We give you the language templates…for example, we suggest the wording bright or soft of each season, this is so that you can grasp the techniques quickly and easily. They are words that clients understand easily too….it is up to you whether or not you use these words or use your own. Your clients will be mini versions of you, so the words and ways you work will be a match.
  • It is about the client understanding what looks good on them and giving them some guidance on this, it isn’t about you wafting a load of drapes under the jawline thinking it will make you look good.
  • It is about giving your client a few colour options and letting them discover the world of colour at the shops.
  • It is about explaining that the swatch is a guidance tool NOT a these are the wow colours you must wear for the rest of your days. That blocks clients in, it is important to give them the freedom of choice under guidance.
  • It is about defining your clients skin tone easily and advising them of this; it isn’t about looking at their eyes and hair and without so much as a courtesy drape or wand stating that you think XYZ!! The drapes and wands guide you not your guess work. 
  • It is about giving guidance on the level of colour along with the undertone of the colour that is a match for each client, it isn’t about saying you are a ‘bright’ or a ‘soft’ so you can wear both warm and cool colours. This is  misconception and confuses clients who would go away muddled because we all know that we have either a warm or cool skin tone (yellow based or blue based) and due to genetics sometimes a mix so its about finding the dominant one.


Sue learnt the traditional way by placing the drapes in front of you and comparing 4 sets of the same colour together and she very quickly found that it wasn’t as easy as she thought. She struggled to find a starting point and sometimes would be 4 colours in before she found it, which made her extremely tense. Clients couldn’t help either as they couldn’t see enough of a difference in their skin tones when doing the draping and you couldn’t say to them can you see one that pops out at you? That wouldn’t have made her look very professional. For a while Sue actually stopped doing colour because she thought she was useless at it. It was only after having conversations with many other colour consultants at a conference who had also stopped doing colour because they couldn’t get started and found the traditional process difficult that Sue realised that it was the traditional draping methods that were not working for today’s clients, not the consultants themselves.


And also because of one of Sue’s first lovely customers who, when she was struggling to remember certain words that she was ‘told’ she had to use, her customer said “Sue, all I want to know is what undertone I have and the level of colour that I need to wear. That’s it, just please give me that”  WOW, Keeping it super simple.

Loved that……….Keep it super simple

So having figured this out, Sue set about creating an easier way of working doing colour which gives clear starting points, a re-checking point and breaking down the need to compare zillions of drapes in one session. What Sue has created are 3 proven steps to colour analysis success which incorporate the need to clearly help identify a clients skin tone with ease.

Identify the colours and their corresponding energies that we wrap ourselves in daily….some match but many do not leaving us feeling out of sorts. 

We’ve developed the best ways of draping clients easily, no stressing, no worries and no mistakes. Just 3 simple steps to colour analysis success, guaranteed.



The Seasonal Twist™ colour analysis method offers you a simple, yet highly effective way of using drapes in a better way that empowers the colour coach and helps the client to understand colour in a much easier way.

It is based on 4 warm tones and 4 cool tones, which are:

Warm tones: Bright Spring & Soft Spring and Bright Autumn and Soft Autumn

Cool tones: Bright Winter and Soft Winter and Bright Summer and Soft Summer

  • Learn to use your drapes in a much better way.
  • Discover how easy it is to determine warm/cool skin tones
  • Discover how easy it is to determine the  level of colour your client can wear

We have people learning with us who are using the traditional 4 seasons and tonal methods because our techniques are adaptable for any method of colour analysis.

Taking nature as our example and guide, because clients relate to the seasons and colours associated around them



taking them from colour oblivion –  energy-less and starkness



into the wonderful world of colour in all its glory and energy because clients understand and resonate with the ‘feel’ of each season and we expand it out into tones and hues






and introduce each client on their own journey with colour, the impact of which they will feel from the inside out through energy and looks.
