You could use a warm or cool fabric, or Gold and Silver foil held against the clients face to ascertain what colours compliment or contrast a client’s skin tone.
Subduing Colour Tones
Using the colour star we can very simply understand how to resolve simple tone issues. By using the colours that are directly opposite each other we can subdue the tone. For example to subdue hair that looks very Red use a colour that has a tone of Green within and so on.
