Choosing the Right Shade for Your Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are a great way to add length, volume, and colour to your hair. But choosing the right shade for your extensions can be challenging, especially if you're unsure about the different colours and tones available. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of finding the perfect shade for your hair extensions.

  1. Consider your natural hair colour The first step in choosing the right shade for your hair extensions is to consider your natural hair colour. Take a close look at the roots and ends of your hair to determine the base colour and any highlights or lowlights. You'll want to choose an extension shade that closely matches your natural hair colour to ensure a seamless blend.

  2. Take into account the lighting Lighting can greatly affect the appearance of hair colour. So, when selecting your extension shade, be sure to consider the lighting in the room. If you're shopping for extensions in a store, take advantage of natural light by standing near a window. If you're shopping online, try to view the colour chart in natural light for the most accurate representation.

  3. Don't be afraid to ask for help If you're still unsure about which shade to choose. You can book a consultation at one of our three salons or via mobile. If you aren't located in the Toronto area you can send in photos of your hair in natural lighting to One of our professional technicians can give you a colour recommendation. Alternatively, you can also purchase a colour ring from us.

  4. Choose a shade that complements your skin tone Your skin tone can greatly affect the way a hair colour looks on you. For example, cool shades like ash blonde and platinum tend to look better on those with cool skin tones, while warm shades like golden blonde and honey tend to suit those with warm skin tones. If you're not sure about your skin tone, try holding different shades of hair next to your face to see which one looks best.

  5. Consider your lifestyle Finally, think about your lifestyle when choosing the right shade for your hair extensions. If you have a busy lifestyle and want low maintenance extensions, consider going for a shade that's close to your natural hair colour. This will help you avoid frequent trips to the hair salon for touch-ups.

In conclusion, choosing the right shade for your hair extensions is an important part of the extension-buying process. By considering your natural hair colour, lighting, skin tone, and lifestyle, you can find the perfect shade that complements your look and makes you feel confident and beautiful.
