Let me help you to choose a your perfect Hair-extension Color shade
Color Matching “Multi-colored”,
Highlighted or Ombre hair
For hair colors containing two different shades or more: The best color to match, will most likely be the color you have the most of. Hairoverheel Hair-extensions are solid colored, so they will need to blend well with all of your other hair colors. And this also depends on what look you are going for. If you would like to “bring out” a certain color in your hair, that you may have less of, you may choose to match the color you have the least of in your hair already.
You want to clip in hair extensions that will pull all of your hair colors together well, and blend the most natural way possible. This may not always be an easy decision, and I can guide you on the best choice. My suggestions will only be suggestions, and I can not guarantee your perfect color match in any way. You always can buy a Color sample
The suggested way to purchase solid colored extensions for highlighted hair, would be to match your “underneath” shade. You should basically have two shades in your hair, if it is highlighted. Depending on how many highlights you have, you may choose to match one color or the other. And just like with multi-colored hair colors, you may choose to match the extensions with the shade you have the most of in your hair, or the least of.
Remember that the extensions will be clipped underneath your hair, so matching the color towards the bottom often provides the better results. For instance, if you have dark brown hair as your natural color, and blonde highlights on top, you may want to match your natural brown color. What can often happen, is by matching the light blonde highlights, you may end up with a three- way pattern. Light blonde on the top of your hair, brown in the middle, and then your long extensions would be light blonde. If you are adding length with the extensions, remember that any extra length you have, will be a 100% solid color. So any length you add, will only be one color. The only way to add length with our extensions using more than one shade, is to purchase two sets of hair extensions, in your two different colors.
Ombre extensions can be created using solid colored extensions. The best way to accomplish this, is to have your natural hair ombre-colored already. Trying to clip in a different color to your already solid colored hair in a different color, may not give the desired results. When your hair is already ombre, all you would need to do is match the bottom shade in your hair. The extensions will then blend with your bottom color, and your entire hair look will have an ombre effect.
Unless you plan to dye the extensions (which I highly do not recommend) this would be the best way to create ombre with Hairoverheel extensions. I do not advise to dye any human hair extensions. From darkest to lightest in shade. These are only examples, and I do not carry multi-colored extensions. The purpose of this illustration, is to guide you on which color to purchase, based on what fits the needs for your “multi-colored”, or highlighted hair.
- 1 Match the light blonde shade with our Beach Blonde color.
- 2 Match the light blonde shade with our Beach Blonde color.
- 3 Match the light blonde shade with our Platinum Blonde color.
The blonde highlights in the third example, have more of a golden tone in them. But the point is, you are matching the highlights with our extensions, not the majority color in your hair.
