Selecting A Hair Color
When it comes to buying extensions, whether you are purchasing them online or in a store, sometimes, it is not always possible to get an exact color match. So, is that good news or bad news?
We think it is GREAT news! While someone who is obsessive about matching their hair color might not be as enthusiastic about this, it is acutally a good thing. Noone’s hair is going to be a exact match with extensions. In addition, their roots may match perfectly but not their ends and vice versa. The best solution is to buy a shade “similar” to your hair, a shade lighter AND a shade darker. This will help blend all the colors together to create a better match for you. Another option is to buy two similar shades along with another shade that is much lighter, to create natural-looking highlights.
Another tip is to match to your ends, especially if you are buying extensions for more length. Naturally, our ends tend to be slightly, if not drastically, lighter than our roots. The last thing you want to do is have your hair gradually lighten towards your ends with darker tips from the extensions.
And finally, if all else fails, buy a shade much lighter than your own and apply a gentle rinse to the hair to get it the shade you want it to be. If you are using 100% human hair extensions, there is nothing wrong with applying color to them to get them to match your own shade better.
