Your whole face has to wear the yellow, or any colour, so you need to match the whole palette to it. If there are particular colours in your fan that you feel best in, match the yellow to those.
Hair colour? You can take someone back 10 years with hair alone. And of course it matters to final presentation, good heavens. It is simply just not required for an accurate analysis. The skin tells you all you need to know once you know what to look for.
Each one of us came home a better colour analyst, the teachers as much as the students.
