    Don't believe us? See for yourself.

  • Do you have any color swatches?
    We understand it can be difficult determining your perfect color match from a computer screen. Screens will vary slightly in color and you may think that you're a close match between both Dark Brown and Chocolate Brown. If only you could see the two colors in person to feel absolutely confident with your purchase! We're now happy to offer a maximum of two color sample swatches to our customers within the U.S. and Canada for a flat rate of $10 (shipping only). Dreams do come true.

    If you place an order for a sample swatch, you will receive a small lock of hair that is dyed perfectly to reflect the colors we offer in our full sets. Kindly note, these swatches should be used for color comparison purposes only and are not offered in Classic or Seamless as the base of the weft is not included.

    If you are interested in sampling a couple of our swatches, please email us at info@luxyhair.com and we will pass along our unique link to shop.

    To interested customers who live internationally, kindly note that all Luxies come with a tester weft available in the bottom compartment of the box. This weft can be used to determine whether or not the shade is the right match for you. If it's not an ideal match, we're more than happy to accommodate a return or exchange on unopened items.

    Also, we're happy to help you select your ideal Luxy match. Please send over some photos of your hair taken in natural lighting where we can see it fully to info@luxyhair.com, similar to the photo below.

    Meanwhile, if you haven't already, we suggest to watch our video below on how to select your perfect Luxy shade, which we believe you will find very helpful.

  • What lengths do you offer, and what do they look like on?

    Luxy Hair extensions are available in our new 16" Classic collection, as well as our standard 20" Classic & Seamless collections. We also offer a longer length in our 24" Seamless Blonde Balayage set.

    Why do they look longer on some people and shorter on others?

    Great question! This is because Luxy Hair extensions will appear different in length on every person, as we all have different torso lengths. If you have a longer torso or are quite tall, Luxies will appear shorter on you. If you are more petite or have a shorter torso, Luxies will appear longer on you.

    How long will Luxy Hair extensions be on me?

    In order to determine how long Luxies will be on you, we recommend measuring either 16 inches or 20 inches down from the top of your ear with a measuring tape, as most wefts will be applied around the crown of your head.

    What if Luxy Hair extensions are too long on me?

    Since Luxies are made of 100% remy human hair, they can be cut or trimmed to any desired length by an experienced hair stylist if you are interested in a shorter length. If you decide to get them cut, we recommend having them already clipped into your hair during the haircut. We also recommend coming up with a numbering system for the wefts, so that you know exactly where each weft is supposed to be clipped in for the future uses.

    What if I want a longer length?

    If you have medium blonde hair, you can opt for our exclusive 24" Seamless Blonde Balayage set. At this time, Luxy Hair does not offer a longer length collection, however, we are always open to feedback. Should you be interested in a length, color, or other option for hair extensions that we don't currently carry, kindly send us an email at info@luxyhair.com, and we'll be happy to keep your suggestion in mind for future product considerations.

  • Luxy Hair Color Guide: How do I choose the right color of hair extensions?

    Luxy Hair extensions are offered in 20 beautiful shades ranging from Jet Black to Platinum Blonde, and from Ombre to Balayage. Our extensions are made with a multi-tonal adapt coloring system, which means that there are subtle highlights and lowlights, lighter strands and darker strands throughout each set. This gives the shades movement, dimension, and depth. It also ensures that the extensions blend with your natural hair even if your hair color is a few shades off.

    Below is a comparison guide that shows the level and undertone of each of our Luxy Hair colors. It also offers a general comparison to popular hair dyes on the market.

    Disclaimer: We do not guarantee an exact match when dyeing your hair to match your Luxies. Applying a certain hair dye can yield different results depending on the starting color of someone's hair (and other factors). We recommend having the extensions dyed by a professional. If, however, you choose to do it yourself, a test strand is always recommended.

    Once you receive your Luxies, there will be a sample weft located in the bottom compartment of the box - try this weft first prior to opening the main compartment because you can still return/exchange your set if it’s not a good fit.

  • 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 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 Blonde 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 opt for our 220g Classic set.

    • How do I choose the right color of Ombre extensions?

      What is Ombre?

      Ombré is a French word, which means "shadow"—it's a process that dyes the hair in a gradation from dark to light. The outcome is usually darker hair from the roots to the mid-shaft and a transition to a lighter color from the mid-shaft through to the ends. With Ombré, there is a noticeable color blocking from dark to light, with a smooth transition in between. This technique is meant to look like the hair has been dip-dyed.

      How do I match my hair to the right shade?

      In order for your Luxy Hair Ombre 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.

        FAQ

        I have a solid hair color. Can I still wear Ombre?

        Yes, your hair can be a solid shade! Ombre extensions are a damage-free way to add brightness to your hair color.

        Can I wear Ombre if I have highlighted hair?

        We recommend opting for one of our 4 Balayage shades to further accentuate your highlights.

        Will it blend if I have short hair?

        Yes - we recommend that your hair is at least 9 inches or shorter and that your hair color is a solid shade from root to end. This is because the transition of the Ombre starts 9 inches down the length of each weft. If you have lighter pieces, the extensions will be noticeable and hard to blend.

        If you have fine hair and not a lot of it, opt for our 160g set. For those with a blunt haircut/lob or an average - thick hair type, opt for our 200g set.

        This is because you will need the extra hair and wefts to achieve a natural transition where your real hair ends and the extensions begin. If you choose a set that is too thin for your hair, the ends will look stringy and unnatural.

        Will it blend if I have thick and long hair?

        Yes - our Ombre extensions will look like subtle highlights in your hair instead of a noticeable color blocking at the ends.

        The Ombre transition starts 9 inches from the base of the weft.

      • How far down the weft do the balayage highlights start?

        The balayage highlights start 6 inches from the base of the weft.

      • Are your Balayage colors available in sample swatches?

        No, we do not offer our sample swatches in our Balayage shades at this time. Please be sure to check out: How do I choose the right color of Balayage extensions?

      • Will Balayage extensions work if my hair is short?

        Our Seamless Blonde 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 opt for our 220g Classic set.

      • 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.

        All Luxy Hair extensions come with a sample weft, therefore, you can take out the weft and hold it up against your hair to see if you’re happy with the blend. If you feel it’s not a good fit, we’ll be happy to accept your package back for a return or exchange.

      • Will Balayage extensions work, even if my hair isn’t balayage?

        Yes. Clip-in extensions are a great way to experiment with color, without the full-time commitment or damage to your natural hair. In order for the extensions to blend, we recommend ensuring that your hair matches the root color of the extensions.

      • What collection are the Balayage extensions offered in?

        All of our Balayage shades are offered exclusively in our Seamless collection. They come in a standard weight of 180 grams.

      • What is Balayage?

        Balayage is a specific coloring technique. It was derived in France and is translated to ‘sweeping’. Balayage is a beautiful, dimensional look that includes highlights throughout the hair, with a higher concentration towards the ends.

      • Can I use the Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush on all types of extensions?

        Yes, we designed our Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush to be used on all different types of extensions (including wigs), as well as synthetic and natural hair.

      • How flexible are the bristles on the Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush?

        The bristles on our Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush are very durable and flexible. The advantage to having flexible bristles means that it will be easier to brush through your hair and over the wefts, and will be less harsh on the scalp when detangling. It will also be easier to clean as well.

      • What is the benefit to using a Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush on my extensions?

        Using a Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush on your extensions will actually prolong the lifespan of your set, as it will not cause any damage to the wefts, which you may otherwise experience with a regular hairbrush. The Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush has unique nylon loop bristles that easily glide through the hair and removes tangles without snagging on to your extensions, so you don’t have to worry about brushing carefully or avoiding the roots area.

      • What is the Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush made of?

        Our Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush body is made of 100% natural FSC-certified maple wood with a white soy-based paint dipped handle.

        We specifically chose maple wood as it’s a highly durable and sustainable material, maple trees grow really fast which means that as trees are harvested, new growth can quickly take its place.

      • How is the Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush different from a regular hairbrush?

        The biggest difference between our Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush compared to a regular hairbrush comes down to the bristles. The Luxy Loop Hair Extensions Brush was designed specifically for the use on all different types of hair extensions, as it has unique nylon “looped” bristles which easily glide through your hair and removes any tangles without snagging on to your extensions at the root. This, in turn, can prolong the lifespan of your extensions as it will not damage the wefts. This brush will also not create any discomfort during your regular brush routine as it will not pull or snag on your hair.

      • How much is human hair?

        For human hair, you can expect to pay anywhere between $100-$500 USD.

      • What does Remy mean?

        Remy hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other non-remy hair extensions. Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.

      • Which human hair is the best?

        Remy human hair is the best hair to use for clip-in hair extensions, as it’s the highest grade of real, human hair and achieves the most natural look because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other non-remy hair extensions.

        Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.

      • Do hair extensions work for thin hair?

        Yes, hair extensions are a great way for adding thickness to thin and fine hair, without causing any damage to your natural hair or hindering hair growth in the meantime.

        Our 120g Classic set is ideal for fine hair types and those with a small amount of hair, as it’s our lightest weight. If you are looking for an extra voluminous look, you may consider opting for our 160g Classic set or our 180g Seamless set.

      • Can clip-in hair extensions damage your hair?

        No, clip-in hair extensions are a very safe way to achieve longer and fuller hair, as it’s a temporary solution that is applied and removed daily from your hair.

      • What hair extensions are best for your hair?

        Clip-in hair extensions are best for your hair, as it is a temporary solution to longer and fuller hair. The clips are applied to the roots of your hair and do not cause any damage or hinder hair growth during wear, unlike other hair extension alternatives.

      • I have short hair. Which set should I pick?
        Clip-in hair extensions are a great resource for short haired ladies who either got a haircut they regret, have difficulty growing out their own natural hair, or just want to have the option to rock both long and short hair whenever they want.

        As a kind reminder, we recommend for your hair to be at least 6-7 inches (this is around shoulder length) in order for clip-in hair extensions to blend naturally. If your hair is any shorter, you may experience some trouble with hiding the wefts in your hair.

        So, which set should I pick?

        Which set you opt for will largely depend on your hair thickness, however, generally speaking, we always recommend to opt for one of our heavier sets. Why? This will help ensure that there are enough wefts and hair to create a seamless and natural transition where your real hair ends and the extensions begin. Otherwise, opting for a set too lightweight will result in the extensions appearing stringy or unnatural looking – like below. This is, arguably, every girl's nightmare.

        If you have short and fine hair...

        If you have short and fine hair (both in strands and in amount) you should opt for:

        If you have short and medium/thick hair...

        If you have short and medium to thick hair (this includes those who have fine hair strands but a lot of them) you should opt for:

        Naturally, those with short hair will have to put in a bit more work in order to have their extensions blend in naturally than say, someone with long hair who is simply looking for volume over length. A big misconception a lot of our short-haired customers have is that they can simply clip in their Luxies straight out of the box and it will look natural. While some ladies can pull this off, we typically have to remind our short-haired customers that they will have to put in a bit of work to ensure their extensions look as natural as possible.

        How, you ask? We'll share a few of our tips and tricks that have worked best for many of our short-haired customers.

        If you're a visual learner, check out Milana's video below where she shows how to clip in, trim and layer her 220g Ash Blonde Luxy Hair extensions which she's had custom-toned to match her hair color perfectly.

        • Trim and/or layer your extensions. While it may seem like a waste to cut off hair that you've purchased, it is so important to achieving that natural flow so it's not obvious where your real hair ends and the extensions begin. We also recommend to have the extensions cut by an experienced hair stylist while the set is in your hair. It will also be helpful for you to number the wefts so you know exactly which weft goes where.
        • Pick the right color of hair extensions. Well, obviously! Ok, ok – the reason we have this point in here is mostly for the ladies out there who are rocking an ombre or balayage trend. If you have multiple different shades in your hair, it's best to opt for a color that matches the ends of your hair. Even if you have a darker root color, majority of the wefts will be applied at the crown of your head. So, if you have blonde ends and you're eyeing our Ombre Blonde shade because you too also have dark roots – our Dirty Blonde shade may actually be a better fit. Not sure?

        • Curl your extensions into your hair. This is a great hack. Taking small sections of your extensions and combining them with a section from your own hair and curling them together will help blur that line differentiating your hair from the extensions. Here we have a great selection of tutorials on different techniques of curling your hair and extensions.

      • How do I choose between the 120g, 160g, 180g, and 220g set?

        When choosing your ideal Luxy weight, it's important to opt for a set that best matches your hair type, and not necessarily the type of hair you want to have. Also, keep in mind if you have lots of hair strands or short hair will also need to consider a heavier weight.

        Some common misconceptions we often come across with customers that can sometimes lead to a wrong set being purchased is:

        • "I have thin hair and I want really thick hair, so I should opt for the 220 gram set, right?"
        • "I have thick hair and I want more length than volume – is 120 grams good for me?"
        • "I have short thin hair – is 120 grams good for me?"
        • "I have thin hair with lots of hair strands – is 120 grams good for me?"

        The answer is no to all four and we'll explain why below.

        120 Gram Classic Set

        About

        Our 120 gram Classic set is our thinnest set and is ideal for fine and fragile hair types.

        Set shown in photo: 120g Jet Black Classic Luxies

        This is an ideal set for you if

        • You have a small amount of hair and
        • Your hair strands are fine and
        • Your hair is below shoulder length (medium to long hair) and
        • You are looking to add some volume and length

        You may be able to tell from above that the key word here is "and". The reason why we emphasize this is because if you fit all of the above points, our 120 gram Classic set is ideal for you. If, for example, you have fine hair strands but a lot of them, you will need to consider a heavier weight. Or, if you have above shoulder length (short) hair, you will also need to consider a heavier weight.

        160 Gram Classic Set

        About

        Our 160 gram Classic set is a medium-thickness set and is ideal for thin to average hair types.

        But wait, didn't you say that the 120 gram set was ideal for thin hair types? Good catch—we'll be happy to explain why shortly.

        In the meantime, this set comes with a total of 10 wefts, which is one more four clip weft than our 120 gram set. The difference in each set is not only the extra weft, but also that there is more hair attached to each weft. The hair strand thickness itself will remain the same.

        Our 160 gram set includes the following 10 wefts: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below.

        Set shown in photo: 160g Ash Brown Classic Luxies

        This is an ideal set for you if you have

        Average Hair

        • You have an average amount of hair
          • If you have thin hair strands but a lot of them, this set is recommended
        • You want extra length and volume while still maintaining a natural look

        Thin Hair

        • If you have thin and short hair, this set is recommended
          • Short hair = above shoulder length up to chin length
          • Why? Because you will need the extra hair and wefts to achieve a natural transition where your real hair ends and the extensions begin. If you choose a set that is too thin for your hair, the ends will look stringy and unnatural

        The photo below is of our beautiful customer, Abii Carter, who has naturally short and fine hair and who chose our 160g Ash Blonde set to create the perfect blend to her short hair.

        180 Gram Seamless Set

        About

        Our 180 gram Seamless set is an additional option for those who are considering our 160 gram Classic set. Our Seamless set is a medium-thickness set and is ideal for thin to average hair types.

        Similar to our 160-gram Luxies, this set comes with a total of 10 wefts, but has more hair attached to each weft making the full set slightly thicker than the 160-gram Classic set. The following 10 wefts are included: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below.

        So, what's the difference then? The biggest difference between our Classic and Seamless extensions is how the wefts are manufactured. Our Seamless extensions are made with a thin silicone base which is 50% thinner than our Classic fabric-stitched wefts. They will remain virtually undetectable in your hair.

        This is an ideal set for you if you have

        Average Hair

        • You have an average amount of hair
          • If you have thin hair strands but a lot of them, this set is recommended
        • You want extra length and volume while still maintaining a natural look

        Thin Hair

        • If you have thin and short hair, this set is recommended
          • Short hair = above shoulder length up to chin length
          • Why? Because you will need the extra hair and wefts to achieve a natural transition where your real hair ends and the extensions begin

        220 Gram Classic Set

        About

        Our 220 gram Classic set is our thickest set and is ideal for average and thick hair types.

        But wait, didn't you just say before that the 160g set is best for medium hair types? Which one is it! Noted—we'll clarify this in one moment.

        Similar to our 160 gram set, our 220 gram set comes with a total of 10 wefts. As a reminder, this is the same number of wefts as our 160 gram set, and one more four clip weft than our 120 gram set.

        The difference between this set and our 160 gram set is that our 220 gram set will have more hair attached to each 10 wefts making it thicker and fuller. The hair strand thickness itself will remain the same.

        Our 220 gram set includes the following 10 wefts: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below.

        This is an ideal set for you if you have

        Average Hair

        • You have average hair but want an extra voluminous look (or at the least want the option—you can wear the full set for lots of volume or take out a few of the wefts for a more natural look)

        Thick Hair

        • You have a lot of hair
        • You have thick hair and want length
        • Again, it is important to match the set to your hair type. Even if you aren't necessarily looking to add more volume to your already thick hair, choosing a set that is too thin will result in an unnatural blend with stringy and thin ends.

        Short Hair

        • You have a lob or a blunt haircut
        • You have shoulder length or shorter hair that is medium/thick
        • As before, the reason for this is to ensure that there is enough hair and wefts to create the seamless transition from where your short hair ends to where the extensions begin.

      • Are Seamless hair extensions water resistant?

        Yes, seamless extensions are water resistant. If your set is coming in contact with water for a long period of time (for example, during wash) it is best to let the hair soak in water for no longer than 20-30 seconds. This is because over time, water may seep into the base cavities where the hair comes from, which can make it difficult to dry out because silicone is not as breathable as having a fabric base.

      • Do Seamless hair extensions shed less than Classic hair extensions?

        Luxy Hair clip-in extensions, classic or seamless, rarely experience shedding. While the base of our seamless sets is thinner, they do not shed any more because of this.

        The type of care that is put into your extensions will affect how much it sheds. With proper care, shedding will be virtually non-existent. You can minimize shedding by maintaining your Luxies and gently brushing them with your Loop Brush before and after each use. It won’t cause pulling, snagging, or damage to your wefts.

        To learn how to properly brush hair extensions, please watch the helpful tutorial we created below.

      • What temperature can Seamless hair extensions be styled at? Does heat damage the base of the wefts?

        When styling your seamless extensions with high heat, we recommend setting your tool at 120C/250F degrees or lower. Anything higher may run the risk of damaging the hair, as with any other clip-in extensions. This is because the hair is not being revitalized at the scalp like our own hair is, and over time excessive heat and high temperatures may cause wear and tear to your set, and could potentially loosen the silicone bond with the hair. Generally speaking, heat will not damage the base of the weft unless it is very high.

        One of the best thing about our extensions? They don’t need to be styled at a high heat temperature any way to see results. Our extensions will curl and straighten with ease using low heat.

      • Are there any special care instructions for Seamless hair extensions?

        Just like any set of clip-in extensions (seamless or regular), we advise you to care for your Luxies with love. Watch the video below for our top tips on how to care for your extensions to ensure they live a long and happy life.

        With your seamless set, we recommend to be more gentle while handling the clips because they are stitched onto the silicone base directly. We advise against pulling or pressing the clips with strong force, as it may eventually cause damage to your set.

        As with our regular sets, seamless hair extensions can be washed using warm water and shampoo and conditioner.

      • Where does the hair come from?

        All of our hair is sourced and manufactured in China. We source our hair straight from verified distributors, who depend on their long-standing reputation for ethical sourcing and quality hair.

        We only choose to work with companies where workers are satisfied and happy to be apart of the team. Luxy facilities employ working age staff (mostly middle age women and men) who get a proper salary, normal working hours, weekends off, and holiday leave.

        Also, all of our hair is donated, sold, or exchanged fairly. For example, some of our hair is obtained from temples, where hair is a form of donation and a source of revenue for the monastery/ temple for its own expenses and projects. Therefore, it's a from of meritorious deed for the donor, same as donating money or food. We also obtain our hair from many hair salons, who choose to sell their hair instead of throwing it away into the waste stream.
