Until I met Jill Kirsh about 10 years ago, I wouldn’t give a second look to a single item of green clothing. Open my closet now and you’ll see army green tees, olive green sweaters, moss green dresses. Once Jill showed me that many shades of green greatly flatter my face because they work well with my hair color, I became a green girl. Unsurprisingly, clothes in colors I once adored, including navy, gray and red, are far from flattering and have been banished from my wardrobe.
Jill bases her clever color system on the simple premise that since our hair frames our face, the colors we wear will enhance our faces if they work well with our hair. And, if we change our hair color drastically, we’ll need to change the shades of our wardrobe.
As more and more ladies today quit coloring their hair, they’re turning to Jill at jillkirshcolor.com to recommend the hues that look glorious with their distinct shades of gray – salt and pepper to silver.
Each of us falls into one of four hair color categories, Jill says: Golden Brown, Deep Honey Blonde & Red Hair; Warm Blonde Hair; Dark Brown, Black, Salt & Pepper & Silver Hair and Gray & Ash Blonde Hair. And, she’s created customized wallet- size swatch books filled with fabric pieces of the best shades for your haircolor. The shades in the book all work together harmoniously, so you’ll look your best no matter which combination you choose.
LEARN – RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW – WHETHER YOU’RE WEARING YOUR BEST COLORS
I whip out my swatch book even when I’m shopping online, holding it against the image of clothing I’m thinking of buying.
Jill smartly extended her color formula to exclusive makeup, so you also can get the most flattering shades of blush, lipstick, gloss, lip pencil, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara. The mineral pressed blush glides on beautifully to give a hint of color to my cheekbones in a highly pigmented formula. I need only a small amount of mineral eyeshadow to give my eyelids subtle, but noticeable, color. And vitamin E, jojoba oil, and shea butter in the lipstick help moisturize my lips while avocado oil helps make them supple! The products are talc and paraben free. Prices are completely sensible.
If you aren’t ready to splurge on a new wardrobe, consider investing in one of Jill’s hand-painted, one-of-a-kind silk scarves, which you can pair with pieces you own. One size measures a generous 12-inches wide and 60-inches long so you can twirl it around your neck and look like a million. The scarf is a superb example of wearable art.
You can “meet” Jill online for a 90 minute, one-on-one coaching session where you’ll discover all your best shades of every color; get Jill’s masterful critique of a selection of clothes in your closet; discuss what colors would suit you best for gemstones, eyeglasses, leather – and more, and go makeup shopping on her site. Following the session, you’ll be able to contact Jill with questions anytime.
