There is no universal agreement or standard with regards to “best colour”. There are also no “wrong colours”, but rather more logical and better suited colour-combinations.

Everyone agrees that response to colour is subjective, therefore assuming it should be unpredictable. But it doesn’t work like that! Response is subjective but when the study of Colour Harmony is combined with the science of psychology, reactions cán be predicted with astonishing accuracy.

Neutral functions appear calmer when frequencies are not in wave categories that are too long or too short.  This will introduce any shade between black and white as a neutral option.  Further, *Green, *Blue, *Yellow, *Violet, *Orange and *Red will all have a neutral comparison as long as it covers the medium wavelengths and not have a shade towards Black and White.

You already have the 4 Neutral shades on the Shades of Soul-Book where two of them, the Grey and Brown stripe, indicate a Medium Wave length (considered Neutral) option and the Black or White shade in most cases a *Contrast 0r *Intente option.

The diagram below illustrates the above neutral shades in contrast with *Harmony, *Contrast and *Intente:

Shades of Soul has a similar meaning when translated to Hair Colour’s basic shades. The same natural hair colour number system that is used internationally will apply to the bases of the Natural Eye Colour number system that Cornel Hough created. Starting with 0.10 being the darkest eye shade matching neutral no. 1 also referred to as Black moving lighter towards 0.90 eye shade that would be applied as Light Blond.

Understanding this will explain the significance of the Grey-scale and how general colour’s Value and Frequencies match. This simplifies the concept of how colour solids could be aligned in a 3 dimensional sphere.

Minimal differences might be observed when working from hair-colour-charts that starts with Blue-Black or China-Black as their no.1 choice.

Hair Colour will take on the same principles when you match the eye shade deepness. *Harmonise, *Contrast and *Intente will have similar scaling and number differences. The jump from *Harmonise to 3 shades from the base, remains relevant as well as *Contrast and *Intente, in that order.

In the past any colour that was not called a natural colour had the intention of a contrast colour. The new Shades of Soul principles proof that, the exact matching of Eye Colour Depth versus any colour in that same field of depth, can *Harmonise and as proven, the *Contrast Depth as well as *Intente depth.

This encourages you to fantasise about any hair colour, not just the naturals, to appear natural in a *Harmonise effect hence the principles of *Contrast and *Intente.

Shades of Soul: Using Hue, Value or Chroma

The end result expected is that colour will have a definite undertone and that it used to play an important role on colour choices. The fact that frequencies with undertone limitations are well recognised does not have such a major effect anymore.  Eye-colour-depth is the primary solution. Proving that the deepness of colour-matching is far more intensified by your choice than a minor undertone defect as such. This will always prove that the colour’s undertone is more of a slight contrast option than an alternative specified shade.  One type of Hue might still be considered a better option than another but will not be considered as a wrong colour. The one type of Hue might still compliment the secondary colour option and when seen as a full picture, have better results.

Starting with the deepness comparison you should refer to the Value therefore the eye colour match will take care of the *Harmonising factor.  As mentioned, the Hue will work either in the *harmonising concept or be a *Contrast undertone.

In retrospect the Chroma factor is similar as recognising the Hue of a colour. The fact that an *Intente shade could have more Chroma abilities like in choices of Hue, does not change the first intention. The deepness of a colour selected is the most important step in Shades of Soul.

The Clarity or Brightness of a colour in principle, is shift in impression of how the individual chooses to experience it.  The percentage of how the individual wants to apply *Harmony, *Contrast or *Intente, is already explained in Shades of Soul Active and it depends on the individual of how strong he/she would carry it off.   Your total look will *Harmonise if it consists of more than 50% of *Harmonising Shades and the same for *Contrast and *Intente shades.

Wellbeing consists of being aware of your natural character as well as finding peace in the fact that one can only change what is in your control.  Appreciate who you are and you will most likely excel in what you dreamed of. Natural character is to some extent finding your inner and emotional part but also finding a balance between the understanding of your skin tone and your physical body shape.  The science of colour brings back the feel-good-aspect and assists you in finding the correct proportions.

An individual’s expectations are still put to test when investigating added colour and finding the proportions versus placement and creative texture.

Bold & Intente

Bold is descriptive of Intente, selecting more than 50% of your all over look from the *Intente Shades.

Spicy & Contrast

Spicy is descriptive of *Contrast, selecting more than 50% of your all over appearance from the *Contrast Shades.

Comfort & Harmonise

Comfort is descriptive of *Harmonise, selecting more than 50% of your all over appearance from the *Harmonise Shades.
