The Early Autumn color category (also called Soft Autumn in other systems) encompasses the very beginning of fall. The natural coloring of the individuals in this category as well as the colors in the palette are reflective of this time of year. People who fit into this category are often mistaken for a Summer because their coloring is more subdued than other Autumns and appears to be more neutral.

Coloring Characteristics

Skin Tone

The skin will have a cool (blue/violet undertone) and often appears very neutral and may have soft freckles or a golden overtone. Skin tones in this category range from very pale to medium and are soft or subdued. 

Eye Colors

Eye colors are warm and soft. Blue, blue-green, blue-gray, gray, green, hazel, or brown. Brown-eyed Early Autumns may have eyes that are several shades deeper than their hair color, which creates a very striking look.

Hair Colors

The hair is medium-light to medium-deep and warm or neutral. Dark golden or neutral blonde, soft strawberry blonde, light to medium-deep warm or neutral brown, soft light to medium auburn, soft chestnut brown. The hair has a soft or subdued look. As Autumns age, their hair will turn soft gray, yellow-gray, pewter, and eventually a warm white.
