One of the beauty inventions of recent times that piqued my interest is the clip in hair extension. Not only can this make your hair look longer in an instant, it is also incredibly easy to use. You’ll know how it is used just by its name. By “clip-in”, it means that it can be worn in a single snap. Just put a huge part of your hair up and clip it in. With that, you’ll get to have longer hair. You also have the option of clipping in 2 hair extensions for that volumized look.
However, one of the problems with hair extensions is finding the right color. If you don’t know how to buy the right one, you may end up with a hair extension that you will not use. It may be best to follow these tips so that you can choose the right hair extension for your hair.
Buy the Hair Extension before You Color Your Hair
Make it a habit to buy the hair extension before you attempt to color your hair. It will always work this way and not the other way around. If you color your hair first and buy the hair extension hoping to match it, you’ll always end up with a hair extension that’s either too dark or too light for your actual hair color. So if you want the hair extension to completely blend in with your hair, you may need to buy the hair extension before you go to the salon.
Take the Hair Extension to the Hair Salon
Now that you have the hair extension with you, you may want to take it with you when you go to a salon. Why should you do this? This is so for your hair stylist. With this, he or she will be able to color your hair with the same color as the hair extension. Just make sure that you are working with a stylist that you trust. He or she must also be quite knowledgeable with colors. This way, you’ll get the exact color that you need.
Don’t Estimate Your Hair Color
Always seek the expertise of your hair stylist for hair matters. Taking things into your own hands is a grave mistake. If you do this, you will not only risk yourself in getting the wrong hair color, you may even destroy your hair if you apply the color yourself. And since you are dealing with hair extensions, I advise that you have a hair stylist guide you in your hair color. It will be better this way.
As you can see, choosing the right hair color is not that hard. It is a matter of matching your hair extension to your hair and not the other way around.
