How do I choose the right color of Balayage extensions?

What is Balayage?

Balayage means to "paint" or "sweep"— it's a dyeing process that results in natural-looking highlights. There is no clear fade line between the darker and lighter colors like with our Ombre shades. As well, darker pieces are left at the bottom to give the hair that extra depth and dimension. 

Do I need to have Balayage or highlights in my hair?

No, your hair can be a solid shade! Balayage extensions are a damage-free way to add sun-kissed dimension to your hair. 

How do I match my hair to the right shade?

In order for your Luxy Hair 180g Seamless Balayage extensions to blend, we recommend ensuring that your hair matches the root color of the extensions. To determine the right match for you, please read below.

    Have Questions?

    I have Ombre/highlights in my hair. Can I still wear Balayage?

    Yes. Balayage extensions will blend even if you have Ombre or highlights in your hair. If you have Ombre, the Balayage extensions will add more color and dimension higher up. If you have highlights, the Balayage extensions will add more color towards the ends.

    What if I have short hair?

    Our Seamless Balayage Luxies will work for those with a fine hair type and a small amount of hair. For best results, your hair should be about 6-7 inches in length for the extensions to blend naturally (that's about shoulder length). For those with a blunt/lob haircut or an average-thick hair type, you will need to add a Volumizer Weft to your full set. Alternatively, you can opt for a solid colored 220g Classic set.

    What if I want a shorter/longer length?

    At this time, the Balayage shades come in 20 inches, however, we do offer a longer length in our 24" Seamless Blonde Balayage set. Since Luxies are made of 100% remy human hair, however, they can be cut or trimmed to any desired length by an experienced hair stylist if you are interested in a shorter length. Kindly note, the highlights start 6 inches from the base of the weft.

    We're always open to feedback! Should you be interested in a specific length that we don't currently carry, kindly send us an email at info@luxyhair.com and we'll be happy to share your suggestion with our Product Development team for future consideration.
