Fabulous ways of draping – 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 created better ways of draping that allow for a much easier and clearer way of working with the drapes whichever method you use. 

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. And also understanding that due to the genetics of today….meaning the mixing pot at our creation into the world….hair colour and eye colour can and will be any colour for any season.


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. 


“Sue’s energy and passion are electric….it is so lovely to have a coach and trainer like this”

About You 

  • You want some great tips that work and help you
  • You want an interactive learning experience
  • You want live lessons
  • You want to see in a live session how to use drapes
  • You want to see what happens in a live colour analysis session
  • You want to be able to see a recording of the live lesson because sometimes you may not be able to be there live




Sue used to think you could only learn colour analysis in person

Oh how times have changed.

Now it is possible to watch Sue draping a client in her front room whilst you sit in your home observing, interacting, asking questions, getting answers as the colour session unfolds. Its brilliant.

Now you can clearly see what happens to a models facial features as different drapes (and colour wands) are placed around their face and the models skin interacts with the undertones of the colours and decides which ones it likes. You get to see and witness it all happening in real time plus all sessions are recorded live so if you can’t be there, you’ll feel like you’re there when you watch the recording.

And having experienced these live classes you know exactly what to expect and experience for yourself.



Sue is very passionate & intuitive about colour analysis and having ways of working that work across genetic lines of today’s clients. As you will see she totally loves demonstrating colour in ways and methods that ensure individuals who are equally passionate about learning colour analysis to have as much fun and joy doing colour too. Sue has such a good time which relaxes everyone so that lots of learning takes place. 

“That calm practicality combined with a wicked sense of humour is just what’s needed to stop you in your tracks and point you in the right direction again. I can’t thank Sue enough for the advice I’ve had”


On the new live classes on our models, we look at and work with the 4 seasons, the seasonal twist 8 tones and 12 tones and see how they work with each model and it will give you an idea as to which colour method will work for you. You do not need to have purchased drapes before starting. 

The 4 Seasons method offers the most simple way of doing colour analysis.

The traditional 12 tones offers lots of choice…. with some sections offering colours that are almost identical. Would you find this is it too much choice for you?

Sue created The Seasonal Twist™ colour analysis method which sits right in the middle of the 2 most common methods of colour analysis.

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


Every model experience is different and every model relates to colour in their own way. Seeing this happen in real time and on the recording is priceless. Then you get to experience it yourself with your own clients.

Foundational principle 2: How to use the colour analysis wands to identify and confirm cool and warm skin tones/dominant skin tone and the level of colour/season that matches your clients’ skin tone.

Foundational principle 3: Using your drapes, using words that connect with your client and identifying great colours for your client without limiting them.

Foundational principle 4: Using your base colours to give your client a superb colour analysis consultation. The best gift you can give your client is to show them wonderful colour combinations that will work for them in any given social or professional situation. Bringing consultations to a close with a WOW.
