  • MOONLIGHT SUMMER — (Summer mixed with Winter) Hair coloring: dark ash brown to brunette or silver hair, and double blue skin tone, that could place them in Winter, but they do not drape best in dark Winter colors (though it is possible they could wear black and it can be added to their fan). Their fan may include black or charcoal-gray, best worn with white or cream.  They often have rosy cheeks and a light rose-beige complexion. If hair is dyed too warm, their skin will appear red and patchy.  Eyes are most often deep or icy blue, but might also be light green, medium gray or soft brown (though brown eyes are rare for Summers).  Summer eyes are translucent or mottled with wide band around iris (often gray).  They often have darker eyebrows than other summers. 

Some Moonlight Summers are blonde, perhaps “Classic” Summer

  • SUNSHINE SUMMER — (Summer – Spring) golden blonde highlights in light ash brown hair, dun color, or slight tinge of red.  It is possible that their hair will darken to medium brown.  They are the most believable blond, even dyed.  A touch of yellow may be in the eye pattern, but generally more blue than green (will not look turquoise like spring).  Eyes will most often be blue (maybe green), possibly have transparency of summer, with Spring’s twinkle (and possibly a touch of yellow).  Skin tone has blue undertone, may also have Spring’s yellow overtone, creating a light green cast.

When Seasons Go Gray

  • EYES
Spring              Summer
Autumn               Winter
Other than skin tone, eyes show more about a person’s season than most physical traits. Each season has a dominant feature which is shown in the eye. The SUMMER eye appears as crackly glass, WINTER – spokes on a wheel, SPRING – Yellow sunburst around a gray doughnut shape, AUTUMN – Aztec sun directly around the pupil with specks and dots sometimes.
