Virgin Vs. Non Virgin Hair Extensions

Can You Color Virgin Hair Extensions?
If you’re bored with the natural color of your virgin hair extensions, you can get it dyed. The best thing about virgin hair is that it can hold color better since it’s natural hair.
Before coloring your extensions, you need to figure out the right color shade that will complement your skin tone.
Choosing a hair dye shade is an extremely important but challenging decision. The right shade can accentuate your facial features and give new life to your hair. You may not realize it, but your hair color speaks volume about your personality and personal style. Make sure you pick the right color for your hair extensions. Here are some simple tips for picking the dye color for your virgin hair extensions:
Determine your skin tone
Do you have warm, cool or a neutral skin tone? The color underneath the surface of your skin is your skin’s undertone.
If you have golden, brown or peachy skin, you’re likely to have warm undertones. On the other hand, cool undertones appear red, pink or blue and neutral is a combination of cool and warm undertones.
Wash your face to determine your skin’s natural tone. Make sure you’re not wearing makeup, sunscreen or any other skin care.
Analyze your skin color under different lighting
Our skin and hair color looks different under different types of lights. Check the natural color of your extensions and your skin under natural light.
Check your veins
Take a look at the veins in your wrist in order to determine your skin tone. People with a cool skin tone have blue veins, while green veins reflect warmer skin tones.
Gold vs. silver jewelry
Do you look better in silver or gold jewelry? If silver suits you more, you’re cool toned. Gold is a great choice for warmer toned individuals.
Check your eye color
Most cool skin toned people have lighter eyes, such as blue, green or gray eyes. On the contrary, brown and hazel eyes are more common among warm skin toned.
Do a strand test
The easiest way to check whether or not a specific dye color will suit you is performing a strand test. Apply the dye onto a small section of your hair. If you like the end result, you can color your entire hair.
Generally speaking, warm shades, including rich chocolate brown, deep red and warm blonde suit warm toned. However, there’s no one-size-fits-all rule for selecting dye color for extensions. If you like to experiment, why not choose a trendy, fun hair color?
