How to take hair samples
If we obtain your hair samples, we are able to dye the hair color to match your samples very well. Color is hard to be described with words or with a photo as you know. So sending in a REAL sample (or samples, your hair may have different color shades in different areas of your head, or color can vary from root to tip) ensures a precise match.
For best results, we recommend taking each sample in 100-200 strands of hairs and be about 2-3" in length. The more hair you can provide, the easier it will be for us to analyze the color.
If your hair is the same color all over, please just provide one sample. However, if your hair is a different color in different areas (e.g. you have more grey in the sides), for best results, please take samples from 3-6 areas:
-Front: At the hairline or bang area (if possible)
-Top: The front, top of your head (if possible)
-Crown: The back, top of your head (if possible)
-Temples: At the front most part of your hair on the sides
-Sides: Approximately 1-2" above the top of your ear
-Back: As close to the center of the back of your head as possible
NOTE: Please cut a sample from each area and label each one, informing us what part of the head it came from (e.g. front, top, sides, crown, temple or back etc.).Please make sure the hair is clean. This is important because dirty hair will not show its true color.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND SENDING IN YOUR HAIR SAMPLES BECAUSE PHOTOS/ IMAGES ON COMPUTER MONITORS CANNOT REFLECT REAL HAIR COLOR. THERE IS ALWAYS A DIFFERENCE IN HAIR COLOR.
