A small closet and clothes

I am going to organize my first closet for a client in a couple of days.
I know that you purge first but when you are organizing a small closet of mostly clothes do you purge and then sort what you are keeping into piles and then put them back into the closet color codes, etc?

    If it's a smaller closet, it should be easy to take things out in sections, lay them on the bed and go through each piece, the you can start hanging back the items the client wants to keep into categories in the closet. Once all the purging has taken place, you can fine tune everything.

    After my consultation I gave her a homework assignment before I come back to organize and told her to try everything on to see if she is going to keep it based on certain criteria, because she kept saying "Oh I don't wear any of these anymore." Then I told her just to put all of items in donation boxes so it would be easier for her to remove. I had her buy the Joy brand hangers for my next visit but here is my question:
    Do you take out the section and then put the section back on the new hangers or is it better to hang everything back and do the hanger swap last of all of the areas? I am probably over thinking this one?
