Hair extensions aren't just for length and volume. They are also an easy way to add color highlights. This option is great for people who like to change their hair color a lot, want a hair color that is hard to achieve (involving multiple salon appointments), don't want the maintenance of coloring their hair or don't want to lighten their hair. For seamless blend of hair color I recommend only going 2-3 shades lighter then your base color. For the best results I recommend this option for people looking to add color, volume and only a few inches of length. If you are looking to add a lot of length I recommend matching your base color or going only a shade lighter to guarantee a seamless color blend. Read on to get hair color highlight ideas based on your base hair color.

To create pops of rainbow colors I recommend using #60 platinum blonde as your canvas. You could color them yourself or have your hairstylist color them. I sell rainbow clip-ins already made or I do custom orders for anyone local. Click here to shop rainbow clip-ins. If you are local (my salon is located in Portsmouth, NH) click here to book an in person consult for custom rainbow clip-ins.
