But, as every wise FOF knows, just because a color is en vogue, doesn’t mean that it’s flattering on every FOF. Here, Hollywood’s “guru of hue” Jill Kirsh takes a closer look at this season’s 10 coolest colors and matches them with the FOF celebs they flatter most.
Jill, has a color theory system based on hair color, and believes that any FOF can look younger, thinner and more radiant when they are wearing their best shades. Read more about Jill’s color system, here.
