FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) What is Japan Personal Color Analysis (PCA)?
The goal of a Personal Color Analysis is to identify your natural color tone and to accurately place it into one of the scientifically organized 4 seasonal tones.
Your analysis will be conducted by Tiff Chan, Japan Certified Personal Color Consultant. Your skin will be assessed through a logical and systematic test color draping process with calibrated drapes. We will see the different affects created on the skin, hair and eyes by the progression of the various test colors. You'll begin to see what colors enhance your natural beauty and which ones oppose you. This process is tried and proven and your suitable/unsuitable color will be accurately determined by the end of the analysis.
I'll discuss your colors and how to use them when you're shopping or in your closet. You will walk away from your THEO experience with the confidence and clarity you need to utilize your unique color palette to your advantage.

What type of PCA it is i.e. Japan Four Seasons or other color system in 12/ 16 types. TTS is providing Japan 4-season Personal Color Analysis, which is widely used in Japan;

4) Which option is best for me? Online or In-Person is better?
If you are someone who will want to know in significant detail how I complete an color analysis, the color analysis process in general, significant details about each undertone option, seasonal colour palette and enjoy the fun practise exercise with me, I recommend you reviewing the In-Person Personal Color Analysis as this option may be a better fit for your color analysis and information needs.
If you can hardly spare few hours for the analysis but you want to learn your color palette and general color matching skills by a professional at a cheaper rate, online PCA can fulfill your needs.
5) What is the difference in Online Color Analysis and In-Person Color Analysis?
The major difference for online color analysis is you do not experience the colors on you, sometimes it's tricky for you to visualize without a professional walking you through the whole experience. Also, lighting variations in pictures happens therefore I do have special request on the photos you submit.
