How do I choose the right color of Highlights extensions?

What is the Highlights collection?

Say goodbye to thick streaky highlights! We're excited to introduce a new color technique to our Seamless collection in 3 exclusive shades. The Highlights collection features thin highlights starting from the root straight through to the ends. This collection is designed to blend into hair that has already been highlighted, eliminating the need to get your hair extensions custom-dyed.

What weight does the Highlights Collection come in?

Luxy Hair Highlights extensions are available exclusively in our 20 inch 180g Seamless collection.

Do I need to have highlights in my hair?

Yes, we recommend this collection for those who already have highlights in their hair as it will complement your existing highlights.

Those with a solid hair color can opt for this collection as well since it will add dimension to your hair, however, please keep in mind the highlights will be very subtle. If you have a solid hair color, we recommend you check out our Balayage collection.

What is the difference between the Highlight and Balayage collections?

The Highlights collection features thin highlights starting from the root straight through to the ends. This collection is designed to blend into hair that has already been highlighted, eliminating the need to get your hair extensions custom-dyed. This is great for those looking to further accentuate their highlights.

The Balayage collection features hand-painted highlights that start 6 inches from the root with darker pieces left at the bottom to give the hair that extra depth and dimension. This collection is great for those who have a solid hair color and are looking for a damage-free way to add sun-kissed dimension to their hair.

I have short hair. Can I wear the Highlight collection?

Those with solid colored short hair (shoulder to chin length) will not benefit from this collection. Instead, we encourage you to look into our Balayage collection to add sun-kissed dimension to your hair. If you have short hair with highlights, you can wear the Highlights collection.
