FIRST color check & advice is free! You actually needn't book this offer, we have just listed it here to give you important information for a successful color consulting.
Naturally you can also use the picture color charts in each hair piece offer to check the colors needed for your hair piece. The photo hair color check is an alternative if the online color charts are not sufficient for you. Please e-mail your picture to [email protected]!
A photo color check works despite your hair looking different in different kinds of light, because the hair piece will change like your hair if we match colors in neutral light! So please take a picture according to our instructions further below, to ensure neutral light!
We love investing the time to help you with your perfect color-match, but we need you to provide the right picture, so you find all important details and some background information here in this listing. Please use this advice and contact us if anything is unclear, because we must charge you for further consultings (second color advice listings in all hair piece sections).
We hope that everyone reads this information carefully, so second color advices won't be necessary at all. This saves time and money and you will get your hair piece much quicker!
Important information about hair colors, please read!
Your hair color can be matched perfectly including highlights, lowlights and all shades, because all our hair pieces are made to order exclusively! One's own hair usually contains 2-3 colors, only dark hair (colors 1-6) often consists of 1 color only. Hence we include up to 3 colors in the price for most hair extensions and you can add additional basic colors at little extra costs if needed. The only exception are our extra long hair pieces, 60-100 cm/ 24-39 inches long. Here only two basic colors can be mixed due to technical reasons with this extremely long hair.
In many cases one of our basic colors is close to your hair color, so we would pick it as the basic color for your hair piece as well. Additional colors will make your hair piece look real, because they add shades, nuances, highlights and shimmer of your own hair to the hair piece. If your own hair is right in between two basic colors, a fine blend of these two colors will be the basic mix for your hair color. We might need to add additional colors for highlights or a shimmer in this case, too.
How we make your color mix
We have developed our own techniques, because working with synthetic hair differs strongly from having your hair dyed at your local hairdresser's. Your hairdresser blends the liquid color and applies it to your hair. We take bundles of hair in the basic hair colors we need for your hair piece, part them and put them together again until we have the desired mix.
This time-consuming work by hand enables us to make thick streaks up to fine highlights. Or to get a fine blend which actually is a new color and you cannot recognize the single basic colors in this mix any more.
So the technical side differs strongly from hair coloring at the hairdresser's but we get the same result! Just to give you an example: When we blend two fair shades of blonde and a copperish shade, we get a new shade of blonde with a slightly copperish shimmer.
Process of photo-color-consulting
Mail us a picture of your hair (please pay attention to instructions further below!) we check for basic colors and mail or call you with the basiccolors you need. We will let you know the numbers, the proportions for each color and the kind of mix (highlights, fine blend etc.) we propose an you can check them in our picture charts online.
Then there are 3 options:
1. You agree with our advice and we make your hair piece accordingly.
2. You let us know which details of your advice you want to change and we make your hair piece accordingly.
3. You check our advice live by ordering color swatches. There are offers in all hair piece sections in our shop.
Why is there a non-free offer for a second color advice as well?
You indeed should need the first one only, if you mail us a perfect picture according to our instructions straight with the first one.
We all have pictures on our phones and laptops, so our instructions are often skipped and customers send us pictures from their library. In most cases these pictures are sufficient for narrowing down the choice, but we cannot determine the exact mix with all details with them. In these cases you either have to determine the details we need for your hair piece yourself or book a second consulting at extra costs and send us a clear picture according to our instructions.
Instructions for taking a high quality picture for color regocnition
Device & resolution:
You can use your phone or a regular camera, but we need a large picture, minimum resolution is 600 px for shortest side, the larger the better! Don't use a flash!
Natural daylight, no extreme light conditions light full sun or deep shade, a cloudy day is perfect. Take the picture with the stream of light! Your hair color looks different in different kinds of light, your hair piece should change the same way, so we must match it in this most neutral light situation!
Your entire open and dry hair (any close-ups or details shots of a strand only, any pictures with hats or fascinators, braids, updos, pony- or pigtails!). You must be the only person, any party or group pictures!
Take the picture from the side or the back, you should be seen from the top of your head until the middle of your back, different color shades can be recognized much better from a little distant perspective. If you can't but take a selfie, use a selfie stick!
Number of pictures:
If you wish to send us several pictures, please add which one we should use for our advice and which ones serve as additional information only. This is necessary, because only you know your real hair color so only you can determine which picture reflects it best.
Mail your picture to [email protected] !

My braids came perfectly matched to my hair and for years I’ve had others asking me if they’re real. Fabulous work!
Melanie did an amzaing jobe with the custom colour match to my naturally greying hair, from just two pics...I could never have done it as well as she did. VERY PLEASED! THANKS EVER SO MUCH!
Exceeds my expectations!!!! Picture coming up next week!!!!!
Melanie, oh my goodness! I'm speechless!
I had high expectations, but you have exceeded them. Over the last fifteen years, I've custom ordered many hairpieces, including kanekalon, and yours is the first that is an absolutely perfect match in color, texture, and even in sheen. Absolutely amazing and unachievable with human hair.
I'm going to immediately place another order from you, and will tell everyone I know. Please, promise the next one will be exactly like this! Because now I have very high expectations. Magic is right!
Feel free to use this as a testimonial if you like. It will take some practice for me to become good at putting in the extensions but once I achieve it, I'll get a photo for you. I still can't get over the perfection of this color. You have an artist's eye, and a lot of patience!
Many, many thanks for my wonderful, magic hair,
Super service. Great quality product. Repeat purchases and very happy.
I definitely wish to express my praise to Melanie. She takes her work very seriously and she is patient and therough. My hair color and texture was matched perfectly.
And she catches my mistakes!!! Lol. So I get the perfect product every time. I'm a repeat customer and Melanie's hair braids and head bands make life fun.
