The results are in, the highest-rated hair extension color is "beige blonde." The results have been compiled based on Veila Hair Extensions sales and Noelle Salon's customers' choice of color. Beige blonde compliments so many skin tones, and is a tone of blonde that works well with foil highlights and the balayage hair coloring technique. The color code is balayage T6/61 on our color swatches. Scrolling through Instagram, you will notice many icy blonde hair colors, but they are not as popular as beige blonde and can be difficult to achieve. Beige blonde hair extensions are a more realistic tone of color and the market has demonstrated their high demand.

The second popular color is chocolate brown hair extensions. Our brunette hair color lovers often seek a tone of brown that is rich and decadent. Chocolate brown is the go-to hair extension color for those looking to deepen ashy brown tones. A few years ago, brunettes were going for black and soft black hair color, but the switch to a subtle warm hue has resurged. Chocolate brown, known as level 2 in the hair extension world, is soft on the complexion.

The third popular hair extension color is two-tone blonde which is a mix of ash/gold lowlight with neutral blonde highlight. The extensions are created in a "piano" technique, dark and light, and the swatch code is P18/60.
Two-Tone Blonde Hair Extensions
The fourth popular hair extension color is a balayage tone soft black transitioning into light chocolate brown. This color works especially well for naturally dark hair longing for a bit of highlighted ends. The swatch code is T1B/4.

The fifth and final popular color is an icy blonde with a hint of pink, we call it Elsa blonde. The shade has a soft quality that flatters most skin tones and eye colors. Back in the day, "Elsa" would be considered a champagne blonde. I created this color by using the traditional champagne blonde and adding a drop of violet.
Using hair extensions to create color without dying your own hair is one of their greatest assets. We use hair extensions to even out the faded hair color, add highlights, and create a bold color pallet from the top to the bottom of the hair. Over-processing hair is extremely damaging, using hair extensions instead of coloring/bleaching will save money and your hair in the long run. The above colors are only a fraction of the colors and blends offered but are staple colors.
If you are transforming your hair color and wearing hair extensions, be sure to visit a salon where hair color is also a specialty. In order to match hair extensions, you must have a trained eye for hair color.
The above highly-rated hair extension colors are offered in a variety of hair extension methods. Hair extensions are not one-size-fits-all; keratin bonds are the longest-lasting method and they offer 360-degree movement. Tape hair is still very popular but has decreased in popularity since the hand-tied sew-in wefts were introduced to the market. Tape-in hair extensions are a quick application, but the removal and replacement are messy. The tape is hard to remove, and many people find the process to be painful. The sew-in weft application involves no glue, just a grid of hair beads placed against the scalp and a weft(s) of hair are sewn in place around the beads. The installation takes a bit more time but is time-saving over consecutive visits.
The hair extension world is ever-evolving, new techniques enter the marketplace often. The Ziploxx hair extension technique is similar to the tape-in method, hair is sandwiched in between, and a plastic piece snaps over the hair. This technique hit the ground running, but has not sustained in popularity, most likely because the plastic is quite cumbersome and uncomfortable. The concept of Ziploxx is intriguing but is best suited for short-term wear.
When considering hair extensions, seek out a highly trained professional with years of experience under their belt. Check credentials and certification from an authorized hair extension company. Hair extension training is intense and costly, not something you can learn on Youtube.
