Today, Glowing Color features Janet. Janet writes,

Hello Gem, I think I might be a soft winter, though I am not typical, as is your analysis of Kaetlin.  I have dark blonde changed to medium cool brown hair (and now soft salt and pepper grey) and strong blue eyes/fair skin.   I recently have been analyzed as Light Summer and Cool Summer by top E Color Analysts (by their ratings on Google).   But I feel blah in these colors (actually depressed in Light Summer) and I want to feel radiant.  Could you help me?  Best, Janet

Now, let’s look at Janet in warmer colors.



As you are looking at these, keep in mind that she has added golden highlights and her natural hair color is shown in the underside of her hair. Janet is a Winter. Janet was correct in her assessment in her original e-mail to me that she is a Soft Winter. Soft Winter does NOT equal Summer, which explains why she feels depressed in Summer colors. Soft Winter just means she can wear SOME lighter, softer colors but she truly glows in the bold Winter colors. For example, the teal she’s wearing is soft. The light blue she’s wearing is too light for her. Soft Winter equals soft, not pastels necessarily. I go into further detail in her Color Shopping List.
