Luxy Hair: How To Choose Your Perfect Shade Of Black Clip In Hair Extensions

Luxy Hair extensions are available in 14 beautiful shades, ranging from pure black all the way to platinum blonde, with 2 black shades: Jet Black, which is a pure black shade with cool, blue undertones, and Off Black, which is a warmer toned black shade with brown undertones that come through in the light.

If you have black hair but are unsure of which black shade is ideal for you, read on to learn more about the differences between these shades.

1. Jet Black

Jet Black is our darkest shade, and is a pure black color. This shade is comparable to if you went to the hair salon and had your hair dyed black. Jet Black has cool, blue undertones, similar to the always lovely Veronica from the Archie comics!

A few (real life) celebrities with Jet Black hair include Katy Perry, Kylie Jenner, and Dita von Teese.

2. Off Black

Off Black is a warmer toned, more natural shade of black. Off Black still reads as a black shade, however, it has warm, brown undertones that usually come through under sunlight. If your hair usually looks black but looks dark brown in the sun, your perfect match is likely Off Black.

Note: If your hair colour has red undertones, our Mocha Brown shade may be a better match than Off Black - see below.

Some celebs with Off Black hair include Kourtney Kardashian, Amber Heard, and Bella Hadid.

Side by side...

As you can see, Jet Black is a cooler toned shade, while Off Black is a warmer toned shade with slight brown undertones. 

Is your hair colour lighter than both these shades? You may want to opt for a brown shade instead. Click here to learn more about the brown colours we offer.
