Picking the right color of hair extensions is the most important step in getting a natural, flawless look. Although it might seem like a daunting process, especially when you look at colors online, matching the colored hair extensions to your own color is really not that hard. Besides we have a lot of tips to help you in your journey towards amazing hair.
Our complete guide to color matching your hair extensions comes with 4 easy tips to help you find the perfect color:
What happens if you missed the tips above and already ordered a color that you're not sure is the right one? This is where the tester piece comes into play. The tester piece is a 2 clip weft that comes in a separate section of the packaging so you can check the color match and the hair quality. You can take it out and easily compare it with your own color before committing to the entire set (IrresistibleMe has a 30-day return policy if the color is not a match, so no worries there).
The first step in choosing a hair extensions color is to find the hair color group you belong to.
Human hair extensions are colored using a multi-tonal adapting technique. This means that lighter and darker strands of the same color (basically high-lights and low-lights) are combined to ensure perfect blending, depth and dimension. This guarantees that the final color will work with a wider range of the same shade.
You will fall under one of the following categories of hair colors:
#2 Chocolate Brown (0:35 in the video) - the darkest shade of brown we carry with a slight hint of red undertones. The combination of warm red and cool brown undertones creates a rich brown shade that works great with dark-tone brown hair colors.
#4 Medium Brown (0:55 in the video) - warm mid-tone brown with red undertones. If your hair color is not quite as dark as Chocolate Brown but it's still a dark shade of brown, then this rich and full color is likely the one for you.
The next step is to focus on the tone of your hair color: warm or cold. Always take into consideration the undertones of your natural hair when choosing the right shade of color. The undertones of your own hair should complement the undertones of the extensions.
Your skin tone can also be a guide, as warm or cold hues complement different types of skin colors. For warm skin tones choose natural hair extensions with a rich golden or red base and for cool skin tones choose extensions with a neutral or blue base.
Match the color of the hair extensions to the ends of your hair, not the roots. Why? Because your own hair will sit on top of the extensions and they need to blend perfectly together at the bottom. Also, your roots will always have a darker color then your tips, so avoid choosing the color of your roots for your clip-ins or tape-ins, as they will never blend in nicely with the tips of your hair.
If you want to see the colors before making a purchase you can always order a color ring, which can be helpful to easily find the best color match for you.

@Angela – If you want to custom-dye your hair extensions, we recommend getting the lightest shades of blonde – especially the White Blonde or Platinum Blonde, as it will serve as a clean slate for your dying process. If you color them multiple times, don’t forget to show them some love and use some color-protect treatments to ensure that they don’t lose their shine and strength.
I often change my hair color… Not sure which shade to pick from the blondes so I can dye them!
MARY – Our Platinum Blonde is a light shade of blonde with yellow accents, but if you already opened the package and can’t return it, we recommend toning the extensions with purple shampoo. The purple will cut into the brassiness of the yellow and will render the color more neutral and hence, closer to a whiter blonde. Hope this helps, let us know how it went!
I ordered the wrong color!!! Thought the Platinum Blonde was whiter, but it doesn’t suit my hair color, what now?!
TANYA LU – First of all, we’re so happy to hear that you’re pleased with our product! And secondly, YES, you can custom-dye your hair extensions so that they perfectly match your hair color. We don’t recommend bleaching them from a dark color to a lighter one, as they’re 100% real remy human hair, so they react as your hair would to the bleach… But otherwise, you can always color them darker to make them blend with your natural hair, or you could always opt for a balayage/ombre look!
I can’t believe I can customize the color of my extensions to match my hair! Are you sure you can dye them whatever color?! I don’t want to ruin them, I really love them but the color is off…
LILY – Thank you for your interest in our color ring! The samples on it are 100% the same colors and quality as the hair extensions we sell, so we encourage you to order it and see what shade suits you best! And if you’re still anxious about ordering the right color, don’t be shy and write to our experts at email@example.com – they will guide you through so that you end up buying the perfect color!
Are you sure I can order the right shade from your color ring? I’m afraid the colors will be off?
