6 Levels of Intensity

Understanding your level of intensity is the signature concept of Your Color Style™. Your level of intensity drives the types of colors you should wear and HOW to wear your colors to enhance your natural beauty.


This is probably the most important section of this guide. Your level of intensity will not only drive the type of colors you wear, it will help you understand HOW to wear those colors. We won’t go into too much detail in this guide on how to wear your colors, but I’ll refer you to a few resources at the end of this guide.

To determine if you are soft or bright, let’s consider your natural intensity. If you have a high intensity in your coloring and tone then you are bright, and if you have low intensity then you are soft. But it’s not so black and white because not everyone fits in these extremes. You may be somewhere in the middle. There are a total of six levels of intensity. You will fit into one of these levels. Once you identify with a level, you will know if you are soft or bright.

I’m going to list each level of intensity with descriptions. Read through each one and pick the level that best describes you.


Bright Level 6

Bright with extremes. Your eyes have a high intensity. They may be sparkly bright blue or very deep and dark.

Your hair is likely deep and shiny. You may fall into this high level of intensity with bright white or silver hair (not grey) but your eyes or your skin must be deep. If you have silver or white hair with bright light eyes, see Bright Level 4.

As a Bright Level 6, you have a high contrast between your skin, eyes and hair. You may have fair skin with deep hair. Bright light eyes with deep hair. Very deep skin with bright whites of the eyes.


Bright Level 5

Bright with depth. Your eyes have a high intensity. They may be sparkly bright and light or very deep and dark.

Your hair has brightness. It may be deep and shiny, silver, bright red/auburn or medium brown.

The greatest difference between a level 5 and level 6 is the contrast. You fit here if you have medium contrast between your skin, eyes and hair. You don’t have the extremes like the level 6.


Bright Level 4

Bright and light. Your eyes may describe your eyes as “bright and sparkly” or “light and bright”. Your hair has brightness and will likely be light. You have a low contrast between your eyes, skin and hair.

Soft Level 3

Soft with depth. Your hair is typically dark. Your eyes may be medium to dark brown or a soft hazel. Soft hazel may be a mix of browns, golds and blues or maybe greys, greens and blues.

Your hair is likely dark. You may be a Soft Level 3 with blonde hair but your eyes must be darker. You may also fall into this higher level of intensity with salt and pepper hair but your eyes must be darker (not light). If you have salt and pepper hair or blonde hair with lighter eyes, see Soft Level 2.

As a Soft Level 3, you have a medium contrast between your skin, eyes and hair.


Soft Level 2

Soft and neutral. Your eyes are soft. They may be a soft light hazel or soft grey-blue. You may feel that your eyes are a bright, but the colors in Bright Level 5 and 4 feel way too strong.

Your hair is soft and ashy. It may be ashy brown, dirty blonde or a mix of browns and greys.

The greatest difference between a level 2 and level 3 is the depth. Level 3 has darker hair, where as a Level 2 is more “flat” in contrast.


Soft Level 1

Soft and light or soft and grey. Your eyes are light. Your hair is soft and light. You have a low contrast between your eyes, skin and hair.  You likely are dominantly grey.
