Each color is a combination of many colors, or facets, for the look of naturally healthy glossy hair. We do not use the standardized color process of only using one tint for our hair. The one tint color process always looks fake; like a"helmet" or a "curtain".
Our hair is like nature intended hair color to be...lots of hairs of different colors producing the desired color! Especially in sunlight, you will see the multitude of colors that are combined to make our gorgeously natural, one of a kind, hair extension colors!
Be assured, L&B hair colors are natural. They are glossy, but not overly shiny like many other hair extensions tend to be. No one likes overly shiney hair extensions because it makes them look fake and like plastic.
Because of our multi-faceted coloring system, all colors blend exceptionally well with one another. Whether you wish to use just one color for your hair extension, or several, you can be sure that all colors will blend and match with any other color in our color ring and... with your own hair color!
Our I-Tip hair for micro-ring installation is packaged with 50 strands per pack. So you may order different colors in increments of 50. For example, you may want 50 strands of #60 lightest ash blond as highlights, then 100 strands of #613 as a base color, and 50 strands of #16 or #27 as lowlights for underneath.

We take ENORMOUS care in photographing our hair colors! For our color chart, we laid all colors in one row, side-by-side, so you can compare the colors against each other in the same light.
This photo was taken with north-facing daylight for the truest color reproduction.
Only natural light and no flash has been used for this photo.
NOTE: When these colors are seen in sunlight or outdoors, they will appear lighter than in this photo. Also, the ends of the hair may sometimes appear very slightly lighter as this is natural. Also please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor, depending on the color settings of the monitor.

Mixed colors are a blend of several colors from our single colors above. This makes matching hair colors easy! Even if only one color in the mix is similar to your color, the blend will look very natural.
These are available in Tape Extensions and Clip-In Extensions.
The Tape Extension mixed colors are a bit more striped and defined. Each stripe is about 1cm wide for an elegant streaked effect when installed.
The Clip-In mixed colors are a bit more blended and subtle.
Ratio of colors in mixed blends:
If the mix has 2 different colors, the blend is 1/2 (50/50%) of each color

Take a good look at you hair in the daylight. Usually we all have slightly different colors on top and underneath. See examples of Two or Three-Tone Coloring here and scroll to the bottom of that page.
As a guide, look at the color of the bottom inches (ca. last 5-10cm) of the top layers of your hair. This is the color you should choose for your extensions. This is usually lighter than the hair at the roots, and will be a better match because this hair will lay on top of the extensions.
See if you have more "warm" tones in your hair, or, more "neutral" tones. If your hair color looks warm, you will see more reddish or warm highlights in the sun. If you are more "neutral" the hair will not have as many reddish highlights in the sun.
Once you see if you are more "warm" or "neutral" you usually want to choose colors in that category to mix together. Please scroll down and you will see the Color Descriptions in terms of which are "warm" or "neutral". Some colors may be both...and can be mixed with any color. Please note that this is not a "strict" rule one "has to" follow, as many also mix warm and neutral colors together for a great look. It is purely individual...Which makes single stand hair extensions so versatile! You can create any hair color!
For example, if you are northern European decent, and were "dirty" blonde as a child, you may have more "neutral" tones. Neutral tones are #60, #613, #16 (can be both), #10, #6 (can be both), #2 (can be both), #1b, and #1. So you may want a #16 or #10 for the colors underneath...and a #16 or #613 for the middle and top.
If you had more sunny blonde, or reddish hair as a child, you may have more "warm" tones. Example, you may want #8 as the darker hair for underneath, and a #27 and #22 in the middle and on top.
The more colors you choose, the more likely it will blend better with your own hair color.
With 200 strands (the average amount used for a full head install) you may choose up to 4 different colors to blend with your own hair color. For Example: if you have brown hair, and do not know which color to choose...choose one of each: For example: 1 pack #10, 1 pack #8, 2 packs #6. The blend of colors will make it match with your hair!
If your hair is shoulder length or longer, your hair will blend with the extensions, making a better match than you think! Just holding the extensions up to your hair will not show you how good of a match a color may be. You must install them to see the difference. Because your own hair will be added to the mix, and a better match will ensue.
Often, only a few highlights on the top layer of your own hair to match the extensions make the extensions blend into your own color amazingly well! For Example: If the extensions seem a bit different, simply make a few highlight streaks (8 to 10) in your own top hair layer with a hair color similar to the extensions (always do a strand test first).
What if the blonde color you choose is too warm in tone? Simply shampoo with a "silver shampoo" and the warm extension color will become more ash in tone. TIP: mix the silver shampoo with water before applying to extensions and do not leave on more than a few seconds or minutes...do a test strand first.

*** Colors may vary slightly from "batch" to "batch". All hair extensions companies strive to keep the hair colors the same during production. But sometimes there may be slight differences from order to order, since hair is a natural product and may not always be exactly the same.
Different monitors may also show the colors differently.
