Norma Virgin was the originator of the Color Alliance system and the original CA company, Beauty For All Seasons. "From http://garderobe33.com/

Color Alliance ® (CA) Also known as Beauty For All Seasons  - (which no longer exists, actually now it is used in conjunction with Color Me Beautiful/Color Me Direct).

How to find an analyst that does this system: http://inside.colorme.com/FindConsultantCMB/index.aspx



These fans are actually made by Jeunique, Beauty for You, Color by Dezine.

In September 2001 after 50 years in business, Jeunique International Inc (USA) closed it's doors after the death of the founder and president Mr. Mulford J Nobbs, much to the sadness and disappointment of Consultants and Customers worldwide. The company was taken over by Clear Tree International who traded for 10 months and in October 2011 the company closed its doors finally. We have been associated with the company since 1972 and opened Jeunique Pacific Ltd for the International Company in New Zealand, November 1999. Also taking over the management of the Australian Company 2001. We purchased Jeunique Pacific in July 2004 from the International Company and changed the trading name to Beauty for You Ltd.



It is one of the modern and attractive color analysis methods addressed both at men and women.  It was developed by Norma Vergin, an American mathematician, color theory expert, founder of “Beauty For All Seasons, Inc.”. The method consists in a more precise color measurement that eliminates the margin of error, normally related  to an individual analysis by the advising analyst. The CA method defines also one’s personal color palette, and this theory led to a major breakthrough in color analysis.

Each of the four seasons of the year had from a few dozen up to a few hundred subtypes singled out. For that aim a software was applied which is used for allocating harmonious shades of colors to skin, hair and eye color of the person in question.

Therefore the color advisor gets a tool that supports his very often subjective color assessment, and the customer – a highly individualized palette of colors  (it’s possible to choose between “Lifestyle Palette”“Professional Color Palette  for Women”, “Professional Color Palette for Men”). 

The CA method provides for subtle differences in the tone of skin, eyes and hair. In practice that means that every color palette prepared corresponds  to the person only, for whom it has been prepared. Instead of a small number  of colors characteristic for every season of the year we have an abundance of shades  in harmony with the specific color type. It is also illustrated by the three word names  of the palettes, e.g. “true quartz summer”“contrasting royal winter”  or “vivid velveteen autumn”. What made this plurality of combinations possible  is an arrangement of a vast number of tones and colors selected in such a manner 
so as to highlight the natural inner beauty of every single person."

  1. My skin is very pale, hair very light (base 9), and eyes medium-dark (value 2 or 3), gray and brown - all warm. I guess the skin is neutral-warm.
    What should it be according to this theory?
