How to Color Hair Extensions


We have many colors of hair extensions in several different hair extensions methods. (Check our our Color Ring!) But sometimes there isn’t one that fits you or your client perfectly. One option is to dye the hair extensions. Here are some coloring tips:

  • Strand Test First. Make sure the finished product is going to be what you want by dying a section of hair before doing the whole thing.
  • Deposit, Don’t Lift. If you know you’re going to need to dye your extensions, order a shade or two lighter and add color. Never lift color. The hair extensions have already gone through a dying process, and lifting color will damage them.
  • Stay within 2 Shades. Go darker, but only two shades darker.
  • Color Before Installation. It’s easier on the bonds and on your client’s head.
  • Demi- or Semi- Only. You don’t need the permanent color. Demi-permanent and semi-permanent colors will produce the same effect, but won’t cause as much strain on the extensions as permanent dye does.

Treat the colored extensions like you would your own color-treated hair. Don’t wash them for the first 24 hours, use sulfate-free and color-safe products and avoid chlorinated water.

  1. Ensure that there are no spaces between the tapes. This should help keep the wig set up and furthermore give a characteristic looking hairline.long wigs
