The Paradox of Choice

November 16, 2018
by Lorena Cordero

Choice - it can be paralyzing or empowering! We choose what to wear, who to see, what to do and now you’ve chosen to get extensions. Maybe it's for an event; a birthday, a wedding, or it's just a treat for you. (yes, you deserve it, and yes we have payment plans!) 

With over 70 colors to choose from and seven collections in tape ins alone choosing your color can seem impossible. But fear not my amazing GlamFam, I promise you it is not!

 

Visit Us!

If you are in the metropolitan area you can actually visit the Flagship salon and we can color match you. All color consultations are free of charge and any of our stylists will be happy to assist you. It is always best to make an appointment so that we can make sure someone will be there for you.

If you’re ever stomping down Broome street just drop by! Even if its just to take a peek at our extensive color options we would love to meet you and chat hair!

Visit a Glam Salon!

Not in NYC? No problem! We have Glam Certified Stylists all over the country and even worldwide. We have a directory which lists all of our stylists with certification. Each stylist listed has a color ring and can also match you up to your perfect Glam Shade. Make sure to call ahead for an appointment with the extensions maven who will be assisting you.

D.I.Y.

Or you can do it all yourself! You can order the Color Ring and match yourself up with the perfect shade. We even have an incredible program in which you can borrow the color ring, find your absolute perfect match and then send it back. You don’t even have to pay return postage as we provide a pre-paid label. The returns department will receive it and issue you your store credit. No harm, no foul - make sure to use the store credit to purchase your new extensions. 

Okay, so you decided that the color ring was the best way to go and you have received your package - now what? You realized your roots are one color, your ends are slightly different you once had an ombre but now its grown out. What do you do?!? 

Well, let me help you out there too!

Find the colors that are closest to your ends color match. Remember! You want to match the extensions to your ends, your extensions really live past your own hair and not necessarily at the crown. Your own hair will cover the top of the extension and allow for a seamless blend.

Great so, you’ve narrowed it down to either a #2 or a #3 - which to choose?

Don't choose and get both!! 

Once the tape ins are installed and are mixed in not only with each other but with your own hair the colors melt into each other in such a beautiful way. I promise you will love what it looks like once they are all blended.

Celebrity stylist Chris Appleton never picks just one color because no one's hair is just one color. We live beautiful, rich lives in the sun and that gives us gorgeous subtle babylites throughout our entire heads. Often our ends will be lighter than our roots and that's okay! That's what makes each of us unique and beautiful.

That’s why we always suggest mixing two or three colors to get the perfect amount of dimension! Even what may look like to be a rich solid brunette is actually a subtle mix of tones for whispers of dimension. 

We all know plus size icon Ashley Graham, a trailblazer In her own right, a stunning brunette. At first glance, one would say she has brown hair but it’s not just brown hair it's multidimensional and warm a mix of our dark brown, chocolate browns, and bronzed brown.

 

She mixes in Brown Sugar Swirl with Our Dark Brown to make the dimension soft and subtle.

 

Chemical Free Color 

Mixing in colors is also a brilliant way of adding brightness or face-framing highlights - without harmful chemical processing on your own hair. 

We have solid color options but we also have rooted, highlighted, ombreyed and now even balayged colors!

Don't be afraid to mix them together! Mixing in an ombre with a highlight might seem odd at first but once installed they create this gorgeous brightening effect that kisses you with light. Most recently Denise Bidot a model with Nuestra Belleza Latina stopped by our Flagship salon and did just that! She mixed in the Brown Sugar Swirl highlight and the Honey Dipped Ombre and her hair was unbelievable!

By mixing in a color that is already highlighted or two-toned with a solid that is closer to your own color you can add subtle dimension while still blending into your own hair. This is a great way to get the color you always wanted but maybe your colorist never quite got right. With tape ins, you don’t have to worry about over processing your own hair as no chemicals need to touch your locks. It really is the perfect solution!

Have more questions about your perfect color match? Email us! We ask for at least three images of your hair in sunlight and one of our customer support representatives will provide what we think is your best color match.
