Our Kylisstof hair extensions come in many different color combinations, most of which appear as solid (though multi-tonal) shades of black, brown and blonde, the rest of which are ombré and balayage combinations of two of our primary shades, and balayage combinations of two of our primary shades.
Choosing your hair extensions color can be a stressful process, which we want to simplify for you. The first thing we recommend is to look at your hair in a well sunlit room (but not in direct sunlight), as that will provide you with the most faithful representation of your hair in relation to the descriptions we provide of our own hair tones.
One thing to keep in mind however is that, whereas there are an infinite number of naturally occurring human hair shades, the majority of hair extension retailers typically only stock approximately 10-20 naturally occurring hair tones. Why is this the case? Because just as your own hair is filled with naturally occurring highlights and lowlights, with golden, red, or silver undertones that jump out when you’re in natural sunlight, so too are high quality hair extensions multi-tonal in nature, meaning that each solid color is actually comprised of a few different hair tones which become more apparent in a naturally lit setting. This is important because, provided you pick the color that most closely matches the color of the bottom 6-8 inches of your own hair (which naturally should be the lightest portion of your own hair), your hair extensions will blend beautifully with your own locks. Remember, as the sun’s radiation hits our hair, it naturally lightens it (sometimes by as much as a tone or two, depending on how much time you spend in the sun). This means that, not only is there a natural tendency for your hair to be lighter the longer it’s been exposed to the sun (which is just a function of how long since it left the hair follicle at your scalp), but that our brains are conditioned to expect this and therefore don’t think that hair needs to be one solid color from root to tip. What it also means however, is that, should an absolute perfect color match with the bottom 6-8 inches of your hair not be possible, you should always opt for the tone that is the next lightest shade, and never the next darkest shade (unless you’re sporting a reverse ombré!!)
In order to help you pick your tone, and to complement the photos and video that we’ve created to assist you in that process, we’ve gone into great detail to vividly describe each tone as accurately as possible. That said however, should you have already bought hair extensions in the past from other companies, and you remember the color number that you used, that should always be your starting point, as the vast majority of companies in the industry use fairly standardized tones, that often vary only slightly from one manufacturer to the next.
